Nigel Farage gjør det igjen: Viser at partiet som vil ha utmelding av EU har størst oppslutning.

Det konservative partiet i Storbritannia ligger nå på en femte plass foran EU-valget 23. mai. Stadig flere tviler på om Theresa May blir sittende. De forlanger at hun i det minste setter en dato for når hun går av. Nigel Farages Brexit-parti ligger øverst med 34 prosent og vil ha innflytelse.

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives have fallen to fifth place in an opinion poll ahead of the May 23 European parliamentary election as pressure grows for her to set a date for her own departure.

Nigel Farages nyslåtte Brexit Party suser av gårde med 34 prosent, mens Toryene ligger på 10. Det er en klar melding fra velgerne.

May har ikke levert.

UK PM May’s party slumps to fifth place as pressure mounts for her to go

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party was in the lead, up four percentage points, on 34% while May’s Conservative Party had just 10%, the YouGov poll for the Times newspaper showed. The opposition Labour Party was down five points on 16%.

Two parties which support staying in the EU, the Liberal Democrats and the Greens, were on 15% and 11% respectively.

Hvis valgresultatet blir så bra som målingene tyder på, må Brexit-partiet få en plass ved forhandlingsbordet, sier Nigel Farage.

“The reason I am back today doing what I am doing is because frankly we’ve been betrayed by our career political class,” Farage told TalkRadio.

“If the Brexit Party comes out on top in a couple of weeks time, we must have a place at the negotiating table with the government to help put together our strategy.”

Brexit-partiet går inn for det alternativet som mange ser som logisk: Hvis det ikke lykkes å få et parlamentarisk flertall for en avtale, må Storbritannia forlate EU uten. Men May har heller villet forhandle med Labour. Det kan ende med at Storbritannia blir værende i EU. Det er for å avverge et slikt resultat at Farage stiftet Brexit-partiet.

The new deadline for leaving the EU is Oct. 31 though many Brexit supporters fear that the whole divorce could be derailed.

“We are at real risk of sleepwalking into remaining in the EU,” Brexit Secretary Steven Barclay wrote in the Sun newspaper.

“That is why I believe that it would be inexcusable for the Government to not use the coming months to continue to prepare for the real risk we leave the EU without a deal.”
