The UK is a real mess. All their options are just awful.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Nigel Farage is playing the political gamblers long game.

"Our aim and our ambition is to establish a bridgehead in parliament and to become a real opposition to a Labour government,"

Reforms "contract" is a lesson in political monetary "fairy tales", one could shake the magic money tree, Farage proposals are like subjecting the magic money tree to a earth quake.

Alice in wonderland policies.

Promise streets paved with gold,

Knowing full well such impossible promises you are unlikely to keep.

Simply because the opportunity July 4th could never possibly materialize.

Farage has never had an MP.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Farage has never had an MP.

So what? He has and all Reform party candidates have payed the

It subscription fee's and are perfectly entitled to stand for election.

How anyone could believe a word that comes out of the fabulist’s mouth is beyond me.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Just like in the US, I have faith the good people of the UK will see Farage for the far-right nut and cheap hustle artist he is...

It wouldn't surprise me if he is thinking of committing 34 crimes just so he can brag about being a convicted felon like his orange US hero...

Maybe he'll also say what a "wonderful man" Hannibal Lector is...or for a more UK flavor, that Jack the Ripper was a "real gentleman"...

Farage could well become a game changer in UK politics.

Farage certainly has a skilled natural ability as a public speaker.

However, Rome was not built in a day.

Farage must move beyond his "populist" alter ego.

Farage stating Reform will change the political landscape, simply because Nigel Farage insists so is self-conceit.

Carl Emmerson, deputy director at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, said even with the extremely optimistic assumptions about how much economic growth would increase, "the sums in this manifesto do not add up".

Farage dismissed any criticism, saying: "We're unashamedly radical, we want change, this isn't working."

Farage likes ‘radical’ things. He was a huge fan of the Liz Truss mini-budget.

I think he called it the best he’d heard in decades.

Good call.

Peter Hitchens has been moaning that the BBC gives Farage too much coverage and this is ploy to get Labour a landslide.

They gave him lots of coverage in 2019 as well when he bent over for the Tories and helped Johnson get a majority.

I think they just like covering him. He fills up space.

Nigel Farage is a media wet dream.

BBC what solid viewing figures.

However will Reform promises, policies commandments turn water into wine?

Will the NHS suddenly become the promised "cure all" oasis of modern medial science?

Houses will suddenly sprout forth?

Energy will simple flow out of thin air or sun?

It won't will it

As long as they vote out Sunak, as they will, it's all good.

It wouldn't surprise me if he is thinking of committing 34 crimes just so he can brag about being a convicted felon like his orange US hero...

Ah, that Bidenista 24/ 7 Trump obsession again, lol.

The current Government under Sunak has no credibility to say that another Person or Party is unsuited to run the Country.

Yes, Politicians want to be our "friends" during Election times. I'd rather vote for a stoic Politician who basically lays the cards out on the table for all to see and says, things are not "rosey", and tells us blow by blow, how things will probably go forward with their Policies.

if any Politician were to explain their Party Policies would work, without wishy-washy hypothetical maybe's, then I'd listen to them. Instead all I've seen are fake accusations being continually thrown between one party and the other..... Makes you wonder. Why not simply choose the best from each party, through them together into a new Government, and make them fix the situation ?

Just to give a view the majority of the political entablement are convinced is the very definition of toxic disagreement dissension.
