It is an unarguable fact that Nigel Farage has made political history with his success of The Brexit Party and it should be clearly obvious to anyone in politics today that The Brexit Party is now the only party to support in regards to Brexit. What Nigel Farage has achieved is nothing short of a political phenomenon, there have only ever been two parties that have won a national election other than Labour and Conservatives and Nigel Farage has been the leader of both of them, firstly with UKIP in the EU Elections of 2014 winning 24 seats with 4.4 million votes and then with then in EU2019 surpassing the previous success and winning 29 MEP seats and beating the nearest rival party, The Liberal Democrats by 2 million votes. The has placed The Brexit Party in a position whereby they can actually burst the Westminster Bubble and it would be politically stupidity for any Pro Brexit party to even try to compete and undoubtedly diversely affect the chances of The Brexit Party achieving something that they are clearly in a position to do.
Engage most certainly will not be trying to scupper their chances because we recognise that they are now unarguable the party of Brexit with the greatest chance of ensuring that Brexit is delivered in full! So good luck to Nigel Farage and all in the Brexit Party and on a national level, Engage will support you in your efforts. However, Engage is a party that truly believes to change British politics for the better, we need to change how political parties actually function and as we also believe the collective thoughts of the many will always find better solutions faster than the selective opinions of the few, we will continue in our efforts to provide a true Direct Democracy party in Britain and there is no way that Nigel Farage will be allowing Direct Democracy in his party.
However, until Brexit is delivered in full, we will concentrate our efforts at local government level providing a party for Independents to work together for the better good of the people they are elected to represent, continuing in our aim to provide a party where each branch works as an independent unit and then works collectively in finding national level solutions. If The Brexit Party is successful in putting an end to the current two party system we have here in the UK, then there will certainly be a need for alternative parties and it would be foolish for any of the minor parties to throw the towel in just as politics in Britain is about to be dramatically changed. As far as we know there is no other political party in the UK that offers the same true Direct Democracy system that we have in Engage and we will continue in our efforts to provide such a party to those who want an equal voice in their party.
It is certainly interesting times in British politics and the political landscape is definitely going change with both Labour and Conservatives being punished at the ballot boxes for the way they have both handled Brexit so appalling badly, that is clear by all the current polls. So for those who are drifting off back to the Apathy Party, now is not the time to be lethargic, instead, start looking closely at the parties available and find the right one for you, political change is coming and you can be part of that change.
Leader of the Engage Party
