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.
