Jesus lads, 'tis looking like BREXIT!

We had great fun in this thread since Brexit with the shenanigans of the Tories but now with Starmer I feel things will be less entertaining.
Yeah, there's still plenty drama but it's still all focused around an utterly irrelevant Tory party.


A couple of examples:


Suella Braverman has gone a bit mad, especially over the Pride or Progress flag https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c6p28g8qy3eo:
" The Progress flag flew over our buildings as if they were occupied territory. I couldn’t even get the flag of a horrible political campaign I disagreed with taken down from the roof of the government department I was supposed to be in charge of"

She added "The Progress flag says to me, one monstrous thing: That I was a member of a government that presided over the mutilation of children in our hospitals."


The Tory party membership want Farage as the party's leader, and almost half want a merger with Reform (47%):


Kemi Badenoch has twice the level of support of the next candidate (Suella, lolz).
Kemi and Suella are having a lovely public fight:

Of course, the starting point for that fight was Kemi taking pot shots publicly at the PM and her cabinet colleagues.

So it's still a barrel of fighting rats in the Tory Party.

Thankfully most of the possible fake candidates for reform have been tracked down, we now await the stories of racism, homophobia, and inevitable shitstorms from Reforms complete and utter inability to vet their candidates at all. That'll be fun.

As will Nigel Farage and Richard Tice having to publicly declare all of their financial interests.
 
Didn't a load of Tories not properly declare and nothing came of it?
I fully expect Farage to vacate the seat.
He won't want the constraints of being an MP let alone the constituency work, the clinics, the actual MP work.

Tice and his girlfriend are clueless.

Anderson is the danger. Staggeringly he was a Labour councillor. He is BNP.

Habib's financial dealings would be interesting I'd say.

And as if to prove it.
Tice has been made deputy leader by Farage.
Ben Habib is not impressed.
Ben Habib who went full TUV and backed Jim Allister.
Farage who went full DUP and backed Paisley and Wilson.
Allister who is about to take the Reform whip.

I wonder, what is it or could it be about Ben Habib that Lee Anderson, Richard Tice, Nigel Farage and Jim Allister might have as a reason to force him out?

Some policy thing? Some financial thing? Or something shall we say more fundamental?

Now that you say it:


Less than a week and the infighting in the Reform party is really kicking off.

Also, quick correction there, Ben. You say " The movement we have created does not belong to us, it belongs to the people."

This says otherwise:


It is incredible that a party that got the 3rd highest number of votes is a private company.

Ah, the fun of starting posts, then not finishing them for 20 mins.

There is the whiff of something a little more about it, but there always will be with Reform. I suspect it's merely incompetence and stupidity
