That's right.

If the party clean up, it's all because of the logo.
Of course not.

It's an example of how Farage manipulates people though.

Just as well that all the other MPs and political parties don't manipulate people. I dread to think how we'd cope as a nation if we couldn't trust our politicians 100%......

You do indeed sound cross
And its with very good reason. When you detest a politician it's incredibly annoying when you keep seeing them on the TV. regularly seeing the object of a strong passion can play on your mind and make you react very strongly to them.
My passion was somewhat different but with self discipline and some basic picture association I was able to overcome it

Farage and TBP have certainly got Remainers ‘on the run’, terrified of TBP’s success so far. Ad hominem attacks abound and even TBP’s logo has now put the wind up them. They obviously believe, deep down, that Remainers are actually as thick as pig st and will be mesmerised into voting for TBP because of their logo. It is truly laughable.

Remainers want UK policies from TBP before the EU elections. Again, laughable in its stupidity. Farage has been very clear that TBP is fighting the EU elections on a single issue and the clue is in the name. If you don’t like it, don’t vote for it. Simples.

Farage has said that TBP’s UK policies will be spelled out after the EU elections if TBP fight the next GE. Again, if you don’t like the policies or if TBP don’t publish any after the EU elections then don’t vote for them. Simples.

I can’t fathom why Remainers are running so scared except for if they see Farage as a ‘clear and present danger’ able to woo the extremely intelligent Remainers over to his views. That surely can’t happen, Remainers are far too intelligent for that. Aren’t they?

I'm surprised the electoral commission permits this logo.
If the BP's logo was a road sign pointing to the nearest polling station you might have a point.

Foxed me. I was just about to vote Lib Dem when I saw that arrow and now there's a cross in the Brexit Party box. Fortunately realised my mistake before I posted it but CDEs, old people and the illiterate may not.

None of that matters to leavers who adore him and see him as their savoir.

Not some leavers, or a few leavers or most leavers...…..just leavers in general.

It isn't just one arrow on the outside. If you look in the word Brexit there is another identical arrow between the e and the x. Clever Eh...




Farage was so clever to think up the name Brexit so he could manipulate the name for his parties logo. Oh wait ...no he didn't.
What makes it all the more delicious is that the word Brexit was first used by an arch remainer.

If you act quickly Squiddly you can get the commission to reprint the ballot papers with the logos to the right of the ballot tick boxes rather than the left. Look lively

You can then mock Farage for using a logo which points the electorate away from voting for TBP...……...at least those who can be bothered to vote.

As I said, I've listened to enough Farage to believe I know how he works.

Slightly shouty when pushed even remotely hard is my guess.

And of course don't ask him about things he's said in the past or little things like that poster because that's not relevant now.

Just a guess.

Edited to add I've just watched the interview and shock horror I think I was correct - slippery as a greased eel.

personally i like that. many that aren't often turn out to be temper suppressing nut jobs. then there are others that have a public face but treat their staff like st or beat the crap out their wife and kids at home.
i know of one fairly senior police officer that was highly respected by colleagues, calmness personified under pressure, nice bloke etc etc to those that knew him professionally. all while knocking seven bells out of his family almost on a daily basis. son turned into an absolute animal as a result despite being an intelligent lad with a decent career ahead of him.
It's a distraction technique though.

It's basically "I'm shouting and hopefully you won't realise I haven't answered your question".

To coin a phrase it's "pretty low grade stuff" IMO.

So which prominent politician do you believe does give straight answers to the questions put to them?

One of the esteemed posters above mentions that the Brexit party logo should have been looked at by the electoral commission.

I can see other issues equally as important. I think some title creators that worked for the BBC may well have a case against Mr Farage

The Brexit Party Logo:



The Dads Army credit titles "flag"



Another view of the Dads Army "flag" showing its use in the titles



I think the grounds for copyright violation are pretty clear and so it seems do several twitter followers I have liased with

I think however that the design and implementation of the Brexit party Logo raises more serious issues. It is plainly an attempt to cash in and to link to the affection, nostalgia and fondness the British People feel for Dads Army.

That in itself is worrying what is much more deeply worrying is the suspicion that by doing so they are exploiting the threat of invasion and subjugation. This is something that the Europhobians worry about:
Invasion from the millions of immigrants that have arrived to steal the fruit picking jobs and force British prossies out of the marketplace.
Subjugation by the foreign powers. Not just Germany but France, Italy, Greece in fact any country that takes part in Eurovision.

It should be possible to educate these people into understanding how great the EU is. But this takes tim and lots of subtle hints need laying. Dr Who is off air all year so there is no chance of subtly dropping in comments into those scripts in time. The only options remaining are to wear people down by prolonging the current situation and diverting attentions away.

If only the EU could pop the elections on hold for a brief period of say 6 years that would help

I'd struggle to think of one.

My point is that Farage is no different.

He's basically an angry shouty man in a suit who doesn't like being told he's wrong and doesn't like being asked (even slightly) hard questions.
