@ehBeth,
UKIP's power has been widely exaggerated after the Leave vote. They only got one seat in the last general election and that was held by dissident Tory Douglas Carswell.

Farage has left the building anyway so UKIP's got its own leadership issues.

On Channel 4 News tonight May was referred to as the "Status Quo" candidate, which immediately made me think of this.



This is the only song by them I like. Actually the intro's a bit wanky. It gets good at 1.30.

@izzythepush,
Thanks.

My impression (which could be way off) was that UKIP had been a major force behind the BREXIT vote.

If not, then I guess I'm a bit more concerned than I was before.

The two main campaigns/groups were
- Vote Leave (MPs and peers from the Conservatives, Labour, UKIP and other parties), backed by Conservatives for Britain, the Labour Leave campaign, and Business for Britain,
- Grassroots Out/Leave.EU (founded by UKIP donor Arron Banks, backed by Nigel Farage, former Respect MP George Galloway and DUP MP Sammy Wilson).

Vote Leave was designated by the Electoral Commission on 13 April 2016 as the official referendum campaign in favour of leaving the EU.

The BBC is fairly reliable, they're not allowed to knowingly broadcast lies.

The BBC knowingly lied all the time in the Amanda Knox case.
