angry left wing concoct fake poll against brexit party

The Brexit Party chief claimed the negative forecast for his movement is a “clear establishment attempt to suppress our polling numbers”. The BMG Research opinion poll for the Independent put the Brexit Party on just 14 percent, with the Conservative Party on 28 percent, Labour trailing by a single point on 27 percent and the pro-Brussels Liberal Democrats on 18 percent. The survey suggested voters were abandoning the Brexit Party, which stormed to victory in May’s European elections, for the Tory party amid pledges from Boris Johnson to quit the European Union without a deal on October 31.

Mr Farage lashed out at the BMG Research opinion poll after his Brexit Party were not considered alongside the traditional mainstream parties.

Participants were asked to chose between the Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems, or if they support the Brexit Party, Change UK, Green Party or UKIP by selecting the “another party” option.

The Brexit Party leader told Express.co.uk: "It is staggering that despite being the biggest political party in the EU, BMG do not include Brexit Party with the other major parties in their polls and instead put us down in the ‘other’ category - alongside the Greens and failed Change UK.

“This looks like a clear establishment attempt to suppress our polling numbers. If companies like BMG do not consider winning a national election enough reason to prompt for The Brexit Party in Westminster voting intentions, then we consider all research conducted in this dishonest way to be fake polling.”

I must be missing something, Izzie. :-k

Where in the article you cut and pasted, or in the 2 links you included, does it mention "angry" and "left wing" together?

The only anger I read in there is from Farage - are you telling us he has gone all socialist?

Or are you telling us that BMG Research is "left wing", and that the poll is "fake"? But that doesn't explain the "angry" bit.

I do note the latter poll shows 53% would vote "remain" if they were asked the same question as the 2016 referendum. :-$

Yes 53% of those polled. Irrelevant, as the only poll that counted was one where ALL those eligible could vote, and did in near record numbeSr. Those carrying out the polls will chose areas and groups where the result required will be shown . eg if you polled on leaving EU in London it will be different from the result in say NE England, and that is WHY as I said before the Polls are IRRELEVANT.
