LABOUR'S new candidate for Ashfield argued Brexiteers "didn't know what they were voting for" despite 70 percent of Ashfield voting for Leave in the 2016 referendum.

Boris Johnson should accept Farage’s overtures and let the Brexit Party wreak havoc in Labour’s heartlands

In the wake of Gina Miller’s website launch encouraging tactical voting among Remainers to oust the Tories, it is time for Brexiteers to put country before respective parties and do the same. Over the past week, there has been speculation that when Nigel Farage launches the Brexit Party election campaign today, he might announce that the party will focus its efforts on between 20 and 40 Labour-held constituencies.Such a decision could be a monumental moment in this election campaign and may take us one step closer to ensuring the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. Unfortunately, the Conservatives are yet to indicate that this could be a reciprocal agreement, potentially to the detriment of the Brexit cause.The choice in my eurosceptic, Tory county of Essex is simple: vote Boris for Brexit. However, the political dynamics across the Labour heartlands are different. There is vehement opposition to the Tories which dates back at least to the deindustrialisation of the 1980s. Just …

Nigel Farage urged to stand Brexit Party candidates in all target seats in bid to help Tory MPs win them

TORY MPs goaded Nigel Farage to stand candidates against them in all key target seats to HELP them win the December general election.The Brexit Party boss will reveal his election plan as he launches his six week campaign.AFP Tory MPs goaded Nigel Farage to stand candidates against them in all key target seats to help them win the December general election[/caption] But it comes amid deep splits across his new anti-EU party after yet another snub from Boris Johnson.Mr Farage’s hawks want to run wannabe MPs in all seats across the country, but the doves want to focus on around 20 seats in strong Labour areas that are winnable.Contrary to previous thinking, senior Conservatives now say a Brexit Party challenge in pro-Leave Labour seats could be a crucial help in siphoning off votes from Jeremy Corbyn’s candidates.While many Northern Labour voters may struggle to vote Tory because of long-standing cultural  rivalries, they could back Mr Farage’s outfit.One Northern Tory Nigel Evans, the M…

Does the European Union’s online ad spending constitute foreign election interference?

Using documents obtained from the European Commission, I have sought to understand how the European Union is spending taxpayers’ money on online political ad spending and ask whether campaign spending to date has been sufficiently transparent, if it could have fallen foul of Britain’s election laws and whether it may constitute foreign election interference.What constitutes election interference?There are many forms in which foreign electoral interference may take. Information manipulation, or disinformation, is a common method whereby a foreign actor may fabricate or distort news content in a way that could present inaccurate or misleading information to people who will vote in an election.Cyber disruption is another method which may take the form of hacking and leaking, or even identity falsification. For the purpose of my research, however, we must consider the established precedent of Western governments recognising foreign interference in the form of political advertising and eli…

If he wins a majority, Boris Johnson would be well-placed to play hardball with the EU in negotiating the future relationship

Does Boris Johnson’s deal Take Back Control of our borders, our laws, our trade and our money? Yes, on balance it does, despite the doubts. After the transition period we leave the Single Market and Customs Union, can cut tariffs, negotiate trade deals and change our own rules, regulations and taxes. We will have our own immigration policy. Our EU contributions stop after the exit fee and the transition period.The deal also changes the whole basis for negotiating the long term UK-EU agreement. We will be free to walk out without a deal if they demand too much. Under the May deal, we would have had to agree to anything the EU demanded, to get out of the Customs Union. Provisions which could subordinate much of our business rules and our defence and security policies to the EU have been moved out of the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) to the Political Declaration (PD), where they are non-binding. They are expressed in more open language, no longer assuming alignment with EU rules.However the …
