Can the UK’s Brexit Party solve the deadlock of Brexit?
The Brexit Party have by far achieved the greatest victory in the UK’s latest EU elections, despite only being established 6 months ago. With the Liberal Democrats coming second and the Green Party out-performing the Conservatives, the UK’s two historically most popular parties Labour and ruling Conservative Party have lost a large amount of public support. If the Brexit Party enjoys a similar victory in the country’s next general election can Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party solve the stalemate of Britain’s exit from the EU? bbc.com/news/topics/crjeqkdevwvt/the-uks-european-elections-2019

No, parliament are too divided

Farage would command less of a majority than Theresa May or Boris Johnson in Parliament and would therefore struggle to pass anything, one party, especially one led by such a divisive character, could not do a better job of getting a Brexit deal through an even more divided parliament, and the situation would likely just be a further stalemate. The only way this would be possible is if somehow the Brexit party won a general election and won enough seats in parliament to command a majority Government, both of which seem massively unlikely, despite the latest protest vote of the last EU elections. If the country is indeed heading toward a general election Boris Johsnon has already stated that he is adamant not to work with Farage, and likewise a coalition with other centre or left leaning parties is even more likely. Although popular, Nigel Farage is seen as an opportunist by many, and the Brexit Party is likewise viewed as not a real political party as it lacks a manifesto or any cohesive policy.

Yes – but will further divide Parliament

It looks like opinions are actually more and more fractured in the UK and the country is still harshly divided down the lines of marginal victory of the original Brexit referendum vote. The Brexit Party may be able to engineer a clean cut “no-deal” Brexit, but may not be able to deal with the massive amount of policy changed needed following a harsh split from the EU, especially under such a young party as the 6 month old Brexit Party. Furthermore Nigel Farage will not be able fix the problem of a divided UK Parliament, that is also set to become more fragmented, as bitterness towards the UK’s mainstream political parties is so high following years of indecision and growing numbers are backing more hardliners like Farage.
