Let's think about what has transpired here.
A party that isn't a party has just trumped the political system.
Without a membership. Without a manifesto. Without any organised
structure beyond what is basically a self-appointed board of directors
and a CEO. Without a major advertising campaign to contest the
accumulated political authority of the major parties. Not one of whose
candidates has gone through a democratic selection process. Spotting an
opening amid parliamentary deadlock, and exploiting the attention
economy efficiently -- the Brexit Party won the battle for social media
clicks -- they captured the electoral system.
