Brexit Party to be renamed Reform UK and will campaign against lockdown

Quote:
The Brexit Party is to be relaunched as an anti-lockdown party called Reform UK, Nigel Farage and Richard Tice will announce on Monday, in a move which could alarm libertarian Conservative MPs.

In a joint article for Monday's Telegraph, Mr Farage and Mr Tice declare that "lockdowns don't work", and say their new party will back a policy of "focused protection" from coronavirus only for the most vulnerable, to allow the rest of the population to develop herd immunity.

The plans to change the name of the Brexit Party to Reform UK are subject to approval of the Electoral Commission. Papers were submitted to the regulator last week.

Reform UK hopes to stand a slate of candidates at May's elections - when the Tories are contesting thousands of shire seats, as well as policing and crime commissioner elections - and the next general election, expected by 2024.

Seems a bit pointless, I think Lockdowns will mostly be done with by May next year.

Re: Brexit Party to be renamed Reform UK and will campaign against lockdown

The name probably reflects that. He'll likely take similar positions throughout the four years, identifying culture war/issues within the Tory Party and taking those positions.

By taking a few per cent off the Conservative Party's vote, the evolution of the Brexit Party to Reform UK is more good fortune for Starmer.

Surely an anti-lockdown is cross-party as well as being pointless

Its other policies tap more into the Consservative vote - it's not just anti-lockdown.

The good news is the vaccine will be out by then rendering the party pointless.

The Standing at the Back Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party is quite catchy and had at least one known member during the Regency Period

Well, he's no longer on the LBC payroll and being the warm-up act for Trump is not really a career...so, yes, until his MEP's pension kicks in.
