And so UKIP is still a thing – despite the insistence of those who said that if the Eurosceptic party helped to achieve Brexit, it would destroy them.
Unfortunately, the victory of the Brexit campaign – like all victories – has only served to make the victor stronger. You could argue that it doesn’t make sense for the ‘UK Independence Party’ to continue post-independence, but then the Conservatives operate despite not conserving anything and New Labour managed to govern even after gleefully abandoning the Labour movement.
The only positive is that the people who are vying to replace Nigel Farage have all the appeal, brains, and pleasant odour of a dehydrated herd of partially-chainsawed zombies.
But which one of these dead-eyed living-deads would you like to see replace mein Nigel?
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
