UKIP as a political force seems spent. Ironically it only really achieved success in the European Elections. It has a body of councillors and one MP who still seems to be a Tory and deposed.

The press Barons no longer need to utilise UKIP as they have now achieved the Brexit aim. So, there is a remarkable silence on UKIP with minor reporting on a leadership contest.

With the eventual removal of UKIP MEPs the decline will be very apparent.

The irony is on UKIP because as a political force it needed the UK to remain in the EU to retain its potency.

I would say Ukip is now irrelevant. That's why Farage let go of the reins. Even the leadership contest is just a matter of going through the motions.

Having read the above two posts I'm wondering whether or not you live in the UK?

I have no doubt the political establishment with the connivance of the EU will attempt to ignore democracy and water down the referendum result, as such UKIP is now more relevant than ever.

UKIP's share of the vote increased from 0.3% in 1997 to 12.5% in 2015 a rate of growth the LibLabCon could only dream of, and without UKIP/Farage the referendum would never have happened. Cameron had to do something to stem the rise of UKIP, his advisors said the best way to kill off UKIP was to allow the electorate a referendum safe in the knowledge we would vote for the EU, Ha.

It was David Cameron who was intrumental in bringing about the EU Referendum. He need not have done so but it was pressure from within his own parliamentary party. He was full of hubris and thought himself bomb-proof. He was mistaken. The issue was immigration and little else.

Farage has now left the stage and handed it over to a woman. She is no Farage, of course. UKIP will now lose relevance in a post-EU Britain. Full of old farts and hang 'em and flog 'em battle axes. Judging by the bums on seats at the Annual Conference, youth has no interest in this political Jurassic Park.

Cameron was indeed instrumental in giving the British electorate the referendum they should have had in 1992, but make no mistake he would not have allowed it if UKIP were not supported by 12.5% of the electorate.

And don't write Farage off.

Yes, Cameron was entirely responsible for the EU Referendum. No one else. Farage was like a blo fly buzzing around him.

The important thing here is that a referendum was not necessary but it was Cameron's old Etonian arrogance that sent him down that path. Now he has jumped ship. Totally amoral.

Farage is done for and when we do eventually leave the EU (we are still members and I am a EU citizen) he won't be able to milk the European parliament any longer. He had one of the lowest attendance records. UKIP is full of nasty old buggers who all belong in a home for the deranged.

Clearly your dislike of UKIP/Farage is colouring your view of the facts. It is pretty much accepted that without UKIP/Farage the referendum would not have happened.

Arise Sir Nigel...

Hehe, you'll have to do better than that.

Did I tell you about the time we caught a couple of locals up each others dish dash? They both had wives (Multiple thereof) but as was the custom in that devoutly Islamic country men liked shagging other men, little boys always looked very uncomfortable when a six footer in a dish dash approached.

Sodomites exist all over the West. In fact, they are treated as very special with laws that protect the beasts.

Buggery is so common that it is the norm in certain British institutions such as the Church of England and the BBC.

Western people like you like to portray mainly Arab men as endemically addicted to sodomy but the West even celebrates it in the arts, the theatre, the Church and in parliament. Mustn't say anything about it because that is called homophobia.

Seems that Farage acknowledges UKIP's days are numbered. Why else would he be so busy trying to sort his declining career with President-Elect Trump?

He's an opportunist through and through. He is also deluded, thinking he is a very important person.

Yes, you are right. He knows the days for UKIP are numbered. That is why he is promoting himself as a fixer.

Trump will eventually show him the door.
