Farage on What Is at Stake at European Election: 'Democracy, It's Quite Simple Really'
Brexit leader Nigel Farage has gone head-to-head with stop-Brexit politician VinceCable in the only broadcast debate in the run-up to Thursday's European Parliament election, and appealed to voters who backed both leave and remain previously to vote for his party to help strengthen British democracy.
Debating Sir VinceCable, whose manifesto for the European Union elections is titled "Bollocks to Brexit" and when asked why people should consider voting for him replied "we want to stop Brexit", poll-topping Nigel Farage made a plea for democracy to be respected instead.
Asked by the moderator in a debate hosted by British newspaper the Daily Telegraph on why voters should consider the Brexit Party, which by the last poll before election day now stands as the would-be largest party at 37 per cent, Mr Farage said:
Democracy, it's quite simple really. We had a referendum, a full free and fair referendum. We were told by the government whatever [the result] was, would be implemented. That couldn't be clearer. We then had a general election in which about 75 per cent of people voted for Labour and Conservative parties, both of whom promised they would honour the referendum and deliver Brexit.
...we are a democratic country, our great tradition is that we've always been a great democratic country... I think this is a moment whether you're a leaver or a remainer to say 'promises must be kept' because if they're not, trust in the entire democratic system breaks down. So let's deliver Brexit. We have a new date now, the 31st of October, we absolutely must leave on that date if we are to be in the eyes of the rest of the world a credible, democratic nation that obeys the rule of law.
Summarising his pitch later, Mr Farage continued:
There's been too much in the past three years of what Westminster wants, and to hell with the country. The country now has a chance to speak.
...This is about freedom, independence, democracy. I can't put a price on these things. This is so important generations that went before fought for them. That's what we're talking about here, we were given a choice in that referendum and career politicians are trying to prevent it. The whole thing is an outrage.
I'm appealing to you whether you voted leave or remain. It is vital that the promise that was made to the people that the referendum result be implemented, it is vital that happens. Otherwise, this country will never be the same place again.
While, as the name implies, the Brexit Party was founded last month to tackle one particular issue, it has taken aim at the democratic deficit in the country more broadly. Beyond the longstanding concerns over the debasement of British sovereignty by political rule from Brussels, Farage's Brexit Party has also vowed to tackle the two-party system, and the failure of the Westminster establishment to represent the wishes of the British people.
Promising that a "big win" for the Brexit Party this week would kill off talk of a second referendum to overturn the first, Mr Farage said the Brexit Party was working to "fundamentally shift the political debate in this country."

Anti-Brexit marchers flood into London, demand new vote
Associated Press LONDON (AP) - Anti-Brexit protesters flooded into central London by the hundreds of thousands on Saturday, demanding that Britain's Conservative-led government hold a new referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union.
The "People's Vote March" snaked from Park Lane and other locations to converge on the U.K. Parliament, where the fate of Brexit will be decided in the coming weeks.
Marchers carried European Union flags and signs praising the longstanding ties between Britain and continental Europe. The protest drew people from across Britain who are determined to force Prime Minister Theresa May's government to alter its march toward Brexit.
May also is coming under rising pressure from her own Conservative Party to either step down or set a date for her resignation as her political support continues to wilt. The coming week is seen as crucial as political rivals jockey for position to succeed her.
Conservative Party legislator George Freeman tweeted that a new leader is needed.
"I'm afraid it's all over for the PM. She's done her best. But across the country you can see the anger. Everyone feels betrayed. Government's gridlocked. Trust in democracy collapsing. This can't go on. We need a new PM who can reach out & build some sort of coalition for a Plan B," he tweeted.
Liberal Democrat leader VinceCable, invited to help lead the march in favor of a second referendum, called the crowd gathered in central London impressive and unified.
"There is a huge turnout of people here from all walks of life, of all ages and from all over the country," he tweeted. "We are a Remain country now with 60 percent wanting to stop the Brexit mess."
Police did not provide a crowd estimate. Independent legislator Chuka Umunna and others supporting a second Brexit referendum estimated the crowd at 1 million.
More than 4 million people endorsed an electronic petition this week in favor of revoking Article 50, the act that formally triggered the Brexit process.
The march comes as May, who opposes a second referendum on Britain's EU membership, is easing away from plans to hold a third vote on her troubled Brexit withdrawal plan, which has been strongly rejected twice by Parliament.
In a letter to lawmakers on Friday night, May said she might not seek passage of her Brexit withdrawal plan in Parliament next week. The embattled leader said she would only bring her EU divorce plan back to Parliament if there seems to be enough backing for it to pass.

Pedophilia - Duchess of York - Jeffrey Epstein - Pedophilia Is The 'Glue That Binds' - 'Position is Untenable'
Duchess of York got loan from wealthy US pedophile

LONDON - Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah are in the spotlight for their ties to a wealthy U.S. sex offender - he for being pictured with an underage masseuse at the man's home and she for accepting money from the American to help pay off her massive debts.
Andrew's ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, confirmed in an interview Monday in the Evening Standard newspaper that she did receive financial help from convicted U.S. sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. But she claimed to have known nothing about his background and vowed to repay the 15,000 pounds ($24,500) he advanced to settle a debt to her former personal assistant, Johnny O'Sullivan.
"I am just so contrite I cannot say," the duchess was quoted as saying. "Whenever I can I will repay the money and will have nothing ever to do with Jeffrey Epstein ever again."
The payment was handled through Andrew's office, the duchess said, and she wasn't directly involved. There was no immediate comment from Andrew's office.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron gave his backing to Andrew, who has also been under fire for hosting the son of Tunisia's dictator shortly before a popular uprising overthrew the leader and his relationship with Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, one of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's sons.
Some politicians had urged that the prince be sacked from his position as the U.K. trade envoy, although Business Secretary VinceCable noted that the government had no power to fire him - he's a volunteer, not an employee.
Over the weekend, British newspapers carried photographs of Andrew with his arm around a young woman who now claims to be one of Epstein's underage victims. There has been no suggestion, however, that Andrew was involved in inappropriate relationships with underage women.
Asked whether Cameron had full confidence in the prince, spokesman Steve Field said "yes."
"The prime minister thinks he is doing an important job and is making a major contribution and he is supportive of him in that role," Field said. "We are not reviewing that role in any way."
The comments from Cameron's office appeared at odds with an earlier statement from Cable, who told the British Broadcasting Corp. that "obviously there are conversations that will take place with him (Andrew) about what he is to do in future."
Andrew draws no pay for his trade promotion work, but his expenses are paid by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. Expenses in 2007, the latest year available, were 128,000 pounds.

PM May wins no-confidence vote; calls on all parties to work constructively to forward Brexit
Thursday, January 17th 2019 - 07:31 UTCFull article
The prime minister won a vote of no confidence by 325 to 306, as rebel Tory MPs and the DUP backed her to stay in No 10
Theresa May has called on MPs to "put self-interest aside" and "work constructively together" to find a way forward for Brexit. Earlier, the prime minister won a vote of no confidence by 325 to 306, as rebel Tory MPs and the DUP backed her to stay in No 10. But just 24 hours before, both groups ensured her Brexit plan was voted down.
On Wednesday night the PM met the SNP, Lib Dem and Plaid Cymru leaders but not Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
She said: "I am disappointed that the leader of the Labour Party has not so far chosen to take part, but our door remains open."
Mr Corbyn has said that before any "positive discussions" can take place, the prime minister should rule out a no-deal Brexit.
The BBC's political editor, Laura Kuenssberg, said Labour had been clear that unless Mrs May makes a statement saying the UK will only leave through a managed process, Mr Corbyn is not going anywhere near the talks.
But she said it wasn't a straightforward judgment for the Labour party, as many members do not want Brexit to happen - meaning Mr. Corbyn could quite easily be criticized for helping the process if he attends.
MPs voted against Mrs May's plans for Brexit on Tuesday night by an historic margin when it was rejected by 230 votes - the largest defeat for a sitting government in history.
Speaking outside Number 10, Mrs May said: "I understand that to people getting on with their lives away from Westminster, the events of the past 24 hours will have been unsettling.
"Overwhelmingly the British people want us to get on with delivering Brexit and also address the other important issues they care about. I believe it is my duty to deliver on the British people's instruction to leave the European Union and I intend to do so."
The prime minister said the meetings she had held so far had been "constructive" and that she - along with other senior government representatives - would be meeting with other MPs in the coming days to get the "widest possible views across parliament" on Brexit.
Labor's deputy leader, Tom Watson, earlier told BBC News that it was not "unreasonable" for Mr. Corbyn to say: "Are you serious?" He added: "We're very amenable to talks, but I think the prime minister needs to show us that she's actually serious about that.
"Is she actually going to concede on some of these red lines? Are they going to be meaningful to us?"
The Westminster leader of the SNP, Ian Blackford, wrote to the PM following his meeting, calling for a "clear gesture of good faith" from her.
He said that the extension of Article 50 - the mechanism that allows the UK to leave the EU - the ruling out of a no-deal Brexit and the option of a second EU referendum would have to form the basis of future discussions.
Mr Blackford has also written to Mr Corbyn, along with other opposition leaders, to urge him to back another referendum as Labor's official position.
Plaid Cymru's Westminster leader, Liz Saville Roberts, said she had approached the meeting in a constructive manner, but told Mrs. May: "This must not be a meeting for a meeting's sake."
She added: "We are committed to finding a real solution to the Brexit mess. That means taking a no deal Brexit off the table and a People's Vote on our European future."
The leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir VinceCable, has not spoken publically since his meeting with Mrs May, but earlier he also told the BBC that a no-deal Brexit had to be taken off the table, as well as the PM having a "willingness" to discuss another referendum - which is the party's preference.
And he echoed calls for Mr Corbyn to support a "People's Vote", now that he had lost his no confidence motion, or risk becoming a "handmaiden of Brexit"

'A historic moment': 670,000 march to demand Final Say on Brexit at second biggest demo in a century
The crowds stretched so far back that plenty of people never even made it to the rally. Masses overflowed through the streets of London for more than a mile, from Hyde Park Corner to Parliament Square, as an estimated 670,000 protesters took their demand for a fresh Brexit referendum right to Theresa May's doorstep. They came from every corner of the UK, in what is believed to be the largest demonstration since the Iraq War march in 2003, when more than a million people turned out in the capital to oppose the conflict. Amid the swathes of EU flags and banners, there was also a growing sense that campaigners, MPs and activists were realising, perhaps for the first time, that this was a battle that could be won. "We were the few, and now we are the many," Tory MP Anna Soubry told the crowds crammed into Parliament Square. "We are winning the argument and we are winning the argument most importantly against those who voted Leave."
She said: "We will not walk away. We will take responsibility and sort out this mess with a people's vote." Speaking to The Independent beforehand, she said many Tory MPs were privately supportive of a second referendum amid bitter divisions in the party. Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran said the sheer scale of the event showed that "confidence is growing" in the fight for a fresh vote.
To huge cheers, London mayor Sadiq Khan said the march marked a "historic moment in our democracy". He told protestors: "We've heard some complain that a public vote would be undemocratic and unpatriotic. But the opposite is true. "There's nothing more democratic - nothing more British - than trusting the people to have the final say on our future." MPs from across the political spectrum addressed the rally, including Green MP Caroline Lucas, Liberal Democrat leader Sir VinceCable, Labour's Chuka Umunna and Tory MP Dr Sarah Wollaston, who drew huge cheers when she compared Brexit to a botched operation.

Ex-Brexit Minister Slams May: Establishment 'Don't Want to Leave EU', Exit Plan Led by 'Fear and Supplication'
Steve Baker, who resigned from the Department for Exiting the European Union shortly after Secretary of State David Davis, has slammed Theresa May's ultra-soft Brexit plan and the Remainer establishment.
BBC presenter Jo Coburn asked the former Minister of State if it was true he had been left "out of the loop" and his department was "basically marginalised in [the negotiation] process" on the Daily Politics programme in the aftermath of Davis's resignation.
"There's no way of getting around it, yes," admitted Baker.
It has been common knowledge that Remain-supporting Theresa May and her main Brexit adviser, unelected bureaucrat and Soviet Union admirer Olly Robbins, have increasingly undercut and overruled the Department for Exiting the European Union, headed by Brexit supporter David Davis until the Prime Minister's ultra-soft Brexit plan forced him to walk away from her administration
Anti-Brexit Members of Parliament have lavished praise on Prime Minister Theresa May as she defended her 'Chequers Agreement' which would see the UK remain effectively tied to the European Union after Brexit.
During an address of the House of Commons by the Prime Minister on Monday afternoon, Liberal Democrat leader VinceCable - who called the June 23rd, 2016, vote to leave the EU "white nostalgia" - congratulated Mrs May for the White Paper which could put a post-Brexit bilateral free trade deal with the United States at stake.
"I congratulate the Prime Minister for effectively 'killing off' the United States/UK trade agreement by agreeing to retain EU regulatory convergence which of course the Americans cannot accept," said the MP for Twickenham.
"Could I echo the calls she's just heard that now she has lost the support of the Brexit fundamentalists, now is the time to have a national consensus and a majority of the House who do support retaining membership of the Customs Union and Single Market," he added, which would tie the UK to the uncontrolled mass migration of people from the bloc as well as hampering the UK from signing free trade deals with other nations.
