    Ah, at least Farage had ‘tremendous fun’.

    Cameron, Farage, Johnson all relegate themselves, and two of them were on the winning side…

    I don’t believe him for one second. He’ll find himself another issue before Christmas.

      He’s tactically placed without the encumbrance of his party. Essentially he’s always been a one man band, There is an “I” in Nigel. Don’t know if its genuine or if its politics or a bit of both, with the hope he gets lucky.

      Didn’t he claim that he would retire before, after failing to win a seat in the commons?

    …light the blue touch paper and retire…Cameron, Boris and Farrage…whinging poms got what they wished for…

      Farage got what he wished for. Dave and Boris failed to get what they wished for. You should learn to spot the difference.

    The Stockholm syndrome is strong among the fearful selective democracy hating tantrum throwers

    Get over yourselves, embrace change, see opportunities in challenges and move on, the EU nanny project is over.

    Ha ha ha ha! Look you leavers you’re ring leaders abandoned you like rats from a sinking ship. Oh joy. Being a Brexit Leaver is like buying a dodgy second hand car, it looks nice, the price is too good to be true, the mileage seems so low but you drive around the corner and bang the engine falls out. You push the heap back to where you bought it but oh dear they’ve closed down and boarded up the windows. Enjoy!

      First out of a sinking ship, other EU states will have a hard time catching up more like…

      Orwell just didn’t get round to writing “Animal Superstate” or “2016”. But he certainly captured the attitude of the witless servile proles of the regime – such as yourself.

        Enjoying some light Brexit related schadenfreude and penning a metaphor about a used car salesman makes me a witless servile prole? Hmm. You are a snipey little creature aren’t you.

      So back under the duvet for you today and say your prayers for the return of the days of Dev…. Small Ireland. Holy Ireland.

      It is a good thing that Brexit will have zero impact on you – either directly in terms of the Irish economy or indirectly via the political impact upon the EU

    I’d say he’s going for Roy Hodgson’s old job. More hilarity will ensue.

    Rue Britannia!

    The whole thing is bizarre. The Tories are at each other’s throats and Labour in turmoil and then, the boyo who started it gets all precious, complains about having no life and swans off?

    It’s like Eastenders has met The Houses of Parliament. You never know what is going to come round the corner next.

      1. some old queen

        Well when the first rumor went around that she was dead turned out to be false, some people argued that she should be buried anyways. *Stares at SF*

    His next move, is to run fro leadership of the tories.
    His deputy there will be Boris.
    Who would ever have thought that British politics would be so much fun and entertaining
    Certainly not the brits.

  9. Huh?

    This is his third resignation, no? I don’t think it means what he thinks it means.

    He has, sunk the ship so now, it be sink or swim, though folk are not quite sure, where to swim to or if should bask a while.
