Nigel Farage’s new party is predicted to dominate the upcoming European elections as voters desert the Tory party to support the Brexit Party. While on BBC’s Politics Live, the Head of Government Affairs at think tank Adam Smith Institute claimed regardless how you felt about the former UKIP leader it is “undeniable” that the Brexit party was leading in the run-up to the European elections. The think tank chief began by saying: “I think is what is very clear on this is whether you like Nigel Farage or not, whether you voted for Brexit or not.
“You cannot deny that the Brexit party have started just completely leading this.
“They are slick, they also have this touch of still being grassroots.
“Their candidates, I think are very good, they are very clear speaking and they seem like good people.
“If you contrast to the nasty creatures in UKIP like Carl Benjamin chap who has been saying all this disgusting stuff.
“The Brexit party is just going from strength to strength.
“I think UKIP are just imploding right now.
“ChangeUK, they just seem like a confused party quite frankly.”
Change UK lost its second candidate for the European elections this week over a series of offensive posts on social media.
Joseph Russo was announced yesterday as the new pro-EU party’s top candidate in Scotland.
But he has already resigned after it emerged that he made a number of inappropriate posts online between 2010 and 2013.
Change UK candidate, former Tory Ali Sadjady, also quit over inappropriate social media posts.
The party said in a statement: ”We have been made aware of several offensive Twitter posts. We have discussed this with Joseph Russo and it has been agreed that he will stand down and is no longer on our list of candidates.”
