Ironically, Farage and the Brexit Party doing well are the remainers' best hope in this election.

Any Scottish leave voter is simply an SNP voter.

Brexit Party got 15% of the Scottish vote in the European Parliament election.

It's important for everyone to be aware that, per some unfathomable tradition, polling firms in the UK do not report toplines with undecided voters, as they do in the US.

Because "Don't know" is not an option on the ballot paper on election day.

According to the Wikipedia article Brexit Party is standing in 267 seats, so not quite the 300 that Farage was promising. UKIP has 43 candidates.

And for some reason the last 30 seconds are just silence.

I have a potentially stupid question: Is there no parliament as of now? BoJo's and Corbyn's Wikipedia articles say their term as MP expired on Nov 6? And their district article says current officeholder is vacant? I know the House of Commons is out of session, but MPs should still be in office?

No in UK, once writ drops, all MPs cease to be MPs until the election is completed.  PM and cabinet ministers through remain in their positions but caretaker role only.

Wouldn't this be a problem if there's a major crisis during the campaign period? Like if the Argentinians invade the Falklands again, or something.
