Richard Tice vows to ‘reshape politics’ as UK enters ‘dying days’ of Conservative rule | Politics | News


Richard Tice has laid bare his desire to eliminate the Tories at the subsequent election as he vowed to “reshape politics” within the UK. His party, Reform UK, once generally known as the Brexit Party, is now polling at seven percent, making them about as popular because the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party.

Although Mr Tice’s party currently has no MPs, at a Recent Yr press conference in London, he laid out his “daring, brave solutions” as he claimed his mission was to make sure that the Conservative Party “never have a majority Government again”.

Mr Tice said Britain had been “broken” by 12 years of Tory rule, hours before Rishi Sunak gave a speech setting out his priorities for 2023, which included reducing NHS waiting times and inflation.

In 2019, the Brexit Party, on the time led by Nigel Farage, agreed not to place up candidates for election in 317 seats against the Tories.

This was on account of Boris Johnson’s promise to deliver Brexit by the tip of 2020.

Mr Tice has slammed this decision as leaving “scars on my back” as he said the Tories and Labour had run out of ideas to tackle the crises the UK is facing.

He told reporters: “I believe the Tory Party… should be smashed and destroyed given what they’ve done to the country.”

While he said that former leader Nigel Farage was on “great form” and claimed they were in regular contact, he declined to comment on whether he would make a return to politics.

When asked if this meant his populist party’s future relied on a Labour Government being elected, Mr Tice said: “The more folks that vote for Reform, the more the pressure will likely be on getting proportional representation.”

Sir Keir Starmer has yet to adopt proportional representation as an official policy.

The Labour leader is anticipated to make a speech outlining Labour’s vision for the yr on Thursday.
