The point of voting Reform is to facilitate the absolute destruction of the Conservative party. Followed by the absolute destruction of Labour in 2029 or sooner.

One step at a time.

It doesn't matter to previous Tory supporters if they get Labour, what can Labour do any worse than what the Tories are inflicting on us?

Vote Reform and knock a nail in the Tory socialist party. And who knows, Reform might take quite a few Labour voters as well.
Especially those at the sharp end of mass immigration.

I think the danger (and it's big) is that the right wing has imploded so badly that there will be no opposition. A functioning democracy needs a good opposition to challenge it. The opposition for the next five years will basically be a bunch of weirdos on gbeebies. I think we'll likely see some labour mp's and ministers getting lazy and this will lead to corruption as they've seen it be the norm for the last decade.

They've spent the last few years framing anyone who doesn't agree with their ideology weirdos, far right, fascist, nazi. Basically anyone who doesn't agree with the 'opinions' (propaganda) put out by the bbc is in the fruit loop camp.

This form of othering has been effective. It's been a long, long time in the making, but they will get what they wanted.

The 'incompetence' that Norbert touches on however lays deep within the bowels of permanent gvnt. ie the civil service. For example, they are issuing tens of thousands of work visas to people who are claiming to be working for businesses that don't exist. Now a minimum wage person could identify within 5 minutes if a care home actually exists or not. So this can only lead to one conclusion, that if the supposed highly qualified people handing out visas are giving them out when they know they are fraudulent applications, it's wilful neglect and corruption, not incompetence. It seems that people do actually think that politicians run the operations of gvnt Crazy

As part of the "White" ethnic group, 74.4% (44.4 million) of the total population in England and Wales identified their ethnic group as "English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish or British", this is a continued decrease from 80.5% (45.1 million) in 2011, and from 87.5% (45.5 million) who identified this way in 2001.

In my adult lifetime there has been two plausible political parties of gvnt.

They both supported membership of the EU (de facto mass uncontrolled immigration).

The public went against all of them and voted to leave the EU (and end mass uncontrolled immigration).

After many years of the establishment trying to avoid implementing the democratic decision, one of those parties promised to implement it and heavily controlled immigration.

They lied. And in office have actually done the complete opposite, and leveraged record immigration.

In the programme, the left-wing MP made a number of outlandish claims of the kind that have characterised her brief – but inglorious – political career. These included the suggestion that the fossil fuel industry should be replaced with teachers and carers, that the Democrats lost the Virginia gubernatorial race because Joe Biden wasn’t – shock! – left wing enough and that she feels ‘incredibly unsafe in the chamber’ because some Tories don’t wear masks in the Commons.

The Young Labour executive member also used racial slurs to brand Jewish students as ‘YT’ and ‘the white woman’ with other posts stating that students supporting Zionism were ‘advocating a racist ideology… and champion[ing] a state created through ethnic cleansing, sustained through occupation, apartheid and war crimes.’

For Labour Party managers, the disclosure that Rochdale by-election candidate Azhar Ali had been recorded saying that Israel let Hamas perpetrate the October 7 massacre to create a pretext for invading Gaza was a nightmare come true – for two reasons.

The first was that it forced the party to suspend him, paving the way for the pro-Palestinian insurgent George Galloway to seize the seat.

But according to party sources, the second consequence was equally horrendous: it indicated that Ali had slipped through their “due diligence” net – a system thought to be the most rigorous in Labour history – which in turn delayed their election preparation.


“Ali’s case delayed the continuing process of approving general election candidates by about a month,” a senior Labour official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the JC. “We realised there had to be even stricter due diligence than we already had.”

But the process, he went on, was now robust. In 1997, when Tony Blair won a landslide majority with 145 more Labour MPs than there had been before the election, the party knew little about some of their backgrounds. This, he maintained, was an error it would not repeat.

Angela Rayner says she will apologise for calling
Boris Johnson “ Scum “ when he retracts past comments
she described as homophobic , racist and misogynistic

Say what you will about Boris he was never even under the greatest pressure
personally abusive

And we have Ms Rayner saying she will apologise for using personally abusive language ..
by being even more abusive !

That’s not an apology is it ? the lefties don’t get it ,lol

voting for Reform is the same as voting for the Monster Raving Lunatic party or spoiling your ballot paper

It matters not who is elected to parliament for it is not elected MP's that formulate legislation .
That is the role of unelected global bodies such as the WEF and the WHO amongst others . If one hasn't worked that out yet then I suggest one trots along on the given Thursday and wastes an hour of ones day exercising ones democratic right to satisfy ones false perception that one still lives in a free democratic country Sad

I don't give Reform any chance of having an MP elected to Westminster, unless a current Conservative MP with a huge majority jumps ship and stands for them.

I do not like such sweeping generalisations myself.

Some Tories are not scum.

If I have learned one thing about the UK and its true population on this forum, it is that the silent majority should carry Reform to an easy majority at the next general elections already.

You've picked up a bit of sarcasm too, edy, and
use it with great precision.

Reform should have infiltrated the Tories but ego’s are at play

They did infiltrate them, but are now splitting so as not
to be smeared by association.

Meet some of Reform UK’s candidates:

- Convicted animal abuser barred from owning a dog.

- ‘Fortune teller’ who sold ‘mystic psychic readings’ on onlyfans.

- David Icke fan who claimed ‘Zionism puts agents in places of power’

- Former Cllr booted out for claiming ‘the whole anti-Semitism thing is a false flag, probably masterminded by Mossad/CIA'.

- Conspiracy theorist who claims the pandemic was an ‘illusion' that had been 'planned' by the Government 'since 2016'.

- Crank who claims the Covid vaccine was the 'greatest crime against humanity’

Reform UK is polling in 3rd place nationally. It needs to get serious about vetting.

I believe the article explains that the convicted animal abuser claimed he was protecting his family from an aggressive dog. I can believe that.

He was convicted though and it was quite recent, surely best for everyone if they replaced him imo.
