What worries me the most is that so many voted Reform. I do not want another Govt. with a huge majority that can ride roughshod over any opposition. And then the Govt. will say the majority of the country voted for this. No, a minority of the country voted you in power. more people in total voted for other parties

Idiots who vote for an organization that is a limited company with a few shareholders and no normal party structure deserve what they get. Farage is a conman, but even he is keeping a low profile. Tice and Habib are self-publicists whose only agenda is continuing the populist destruction of political thought in this country. Like UKIP before, Reform are a cynical manipulation of the electorate - and, like UKIP, they are a short-term, get-it-while-you-can vehicle for those who profit from chaos.

With the boundary changes, the rushed opening of the vote to expats away from the UK for over 15 years and the attempts that will be made to bribe us with our own money, the likelihood of a runaway Labour victor seem low - a defeat for the out-of-touch Tory right-wing is what is needed.

The collapse of the LD vote is more concerning, as they are the practical alternative to the Tories in some areas.
