Whilst it is good news Roger I think the real reason is more likely to be that Mr Farage was unable to field 600 candidates, but it should balance things a bit now.

Thanks Hector - latest bit of news :-

WELL DONE NIGEL FOR SWALLOWING YOUR PRIDE   ;)   :D   ;D

"Nigel Farage has confirmed that the Brexit Party will not be standing in the seats won by the Conservatives in 2017, in a major boost to Boris Johnson's hopes of winning a majority.

The Brexit Party leader has confirmed that his party will not contest the 317 seats won by Theresa May and will instead focus its efforts on defeating Labour and other Remainer parties.

In a major U-turn, Mr Farage said he made the decision after concluding that standing in 600 seats would lead to a hung Parliament and pave the way for a second referendum.

He said that the Brexit Party's own internal polling had shown that standing across the country would have significantly reduced Mr Johnson's chances of winning a majority.

Speaking in Hartlepool, Mr Farage told supporters: "I will tell you now exactly what we are going to do. The Brexit Party will not contest the 317 seats the Conservatives won at the last election
."

He's good but I wouldn't say the best. Rolling Stone Magazine rates him as #47 as a songwriter.

I did say ONE of the best, but let's not argue, there have been many fine singer/songwriters in our time.
