Tory – Brexit Party split Leave. Corbyn consolidates Remain. (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 361.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the beginning of snap election campaigning in the UK, post Brexit extension. Nigel Farage and The Brexit party announced it will field 600 plus candidates, smashing any hopes for pro-Brexit election alliance with the Tories.

Boris Johnson apologized to Tory members who voted for him to become party leader for not fulfilling his October 31st Brexit promise.

Johnson said that the delay was a matter of “deep regret”, describing extensions as “painful” because they caused the country uncertainty. Johnson said Brexit would happen on the 31st of October, claiming he would rather be “dead in a ditch” than extend the deadline.

After parliament voted down the timetable for his EU withdrawal bill, Johnson was forced to request an extension until January 31st, 2020.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s conservative party is still leading in most polls for the upcoming UK general election called to help strengthen his mandate. But in a development that threatens to destroy his Tory-led coalition, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has dashed rumors about a possible Tory-BP alliance.

Instead of holding back and focusing on Labour-held seats in districts that favored Brexit during the referendum, Farage announced that his party will field candidates in more than 600 races, threatening to split the pro-Brexit vote and raising the possibility that Jeremy Corbyn could emerge as prime minister.

In the latest ICM poll, Conservatives led with 38%, followed by Labour at 31%, the Lib Dems at 15% and the Brexit Party at 9%.

The latest note from a team of Deutsche Bank analysts focused on Brexit recounted that, over the weekend, a series of polls showed that the two establishment parties appear to be gaining support, suggesting that December’s general election could be more of a two-party race than analysts and investors had initially expected. Still, Farage’s decision threatens to throw a wrench into the works.

Farage’s decision comes after he personally decided to sit out the race (Farage doesn’t exactly have a great track record when it comes to running for the House of Commons: He’s tried and failed eight times already). In an interview with the BBC over the weekend, Farage concluded that he could advance the country’s exit from the European Union better by campaigning on behalf of his populist party’s other candidates than by contesting a seat himself.

Farage added that he would campaign aggressively against Johnson’s withdrawal agreement following the PM’s “broken promise” to leave the EU by Oct. 31. The withdrawal agreement is the crux of Johnson’s election manifesto. Labour also opposes Johnson’s deal, and has said that, if Corbyn ousts Johnson, he will return to Brussels to negotiate a new deal, then put it to the public in a second referendum, which could result in Brexit being cancelled in its entirety.

“There are so many Labour-Leave seats…represented by remain member of Parliament…and we view those constituencies as being absolutely among our top targets,” Farage said late last week during the BP’s campaign launch.

Some pro-Leave pundits will no doubt be alarmed by Farage’s decision.

One senior Tory backbencher griped to the Telegraph that Farage now risks becoming “the man who threw away Brexit.”

The pound tumbled to its lowest level of the day on the news.

HEALTHCARE FOR ALL — USA and UK — As illness is 95% self-inflicted by smoking, drinking, drugs and a 50% fat diet that clogs up every internal organ in the body, those with a self-destructive lifestyle should be required to pay for their own healthcare. For within one year, USA and UK would be the healthiest people on earth and total healthcare costs would be reduced by 80%.

It isn’t the fat that’s the problem, it’s something called oxidative stress, which scientists increasingly believe to be central in metabolic disease. Modern diets are very low in magnesium, manganese and copper, which prevent oxidative stress.

High fat diets can cause oxidative stress, so you are partly right, but high fat ketogenic diets do not, because a compound called beta-hydroxybutyrate is produced which prevents it.

Sovereign brexit will never be allowed to happen.
Boris’s deal is worse than May’s deal
The labour party has deserted its grass roots and become a remain party
The libdems are anti-democratic cowards
The people actually have very little choice in this election unless they act deliberately and remove all remainer candidates – which in ‘tribal britain’ will be hard to achieve – plus, of course in many instances there are NO leave candidates to vote for
