Brexit Party voters defy Farage over Boris Johnsonís Brexit deal

The vast majority of Brexit Party voters disagree with their leader about Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, a poll has revealed.

According to a new poll by Survation, 67% of Brexit Party voters support Boris Johnson’s deal, despite Nigel Farage branding it “appalling” and saying he would rather delay Brexit than see it passed.

Last week, Johnson agreed a Brexit deal with the EU, which he will attempt to pass in the House of Commons today, after it was blocked by MPs on Saturday.

Farage has subsequently said that the announcement of Johnson’s deal was the “darkest moment” since he started campaigning for Brexit in 1993.

However, it seems that Farage’s resistance to the deal is a minority view among his supporter base.

I wonder how air tight the language to ask for an extension is. Could he, for example, ask for an extension and refuse to take it? Could he ask for an extension then demand no extension? Could he ask for an extension and then do a no deal anyways?

Wait until Brexit Party voters find out what’s in this reheated treaty.

This has the appearance of a push poll to me.

The treaty is pretty bad. Analysis here

https://www.brugesgroup.com/blog/the-revised-withdrawal-agreement-and-political-declaration-a-briefing-note


Executive Summary

The Treaty permanently restricts our military independence, demands payment of an unspecified sum, prevents independent arbitration, grants EU officials immunity from UK laws, leaves us with EIB contingent liabilities running into tens if not hundreds of billions and will impose punitive laws on the UK during a transition which is likely to be extended until mid 2022 (just a few months before the next General Election).

The Political Declaration is such that a future FTA with the EU is made unpalatable because it will restrict our foreign policy and military independence as well as policies in trade, tax, fishing, environment, social and employment, competition and state aid. Free movement is replaced with vague notions of “mobility” and “non discrimination”.
