The Brexit Party is seeking information about the dating history of its prospective parliamentary candidates.
The party has officially opened the application process for wannabe MPs to nominate themselves for selection as a Brexit Party candidate at the next general election. In its application form, one of the compulsory questions asks if applicants have used dating sites or apps and, if so, whether they’ve experienced problems with them.
Meanwhile, questions about what constitutes an acceptable Brexit are not compulsory, while a question about the campaigning history of candidates is also optional.
On the party’s website, Richard Tice, Chairman of the party, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who has established themselves in life and thereby able to bring outside expertise and experience to politics.”
He did not say whether this expertise and experience was about dating or about politics.
Applications for candidacy cost £100 and are not refundable even if candidates are not selected. Most candidates, therefore, will be paying £100 to allow Nigel Farage to gossip about their love life.
Last month, Farage hosted a Brexit rally in Birmingham while, simultaneously, Joey Essex was due to run an event called Dating Live at the same location.
This new information suggests the links between the Brexit Party and commercialised dating might run deeper than previously thought.
The Brexit Party have been approached for comment.
