Wellbback seems pretty adamant that Farage will be. I'm wondering who believes Nigel Farage will take over the Conservative party within the next five years.

Emphatic no from me.

He should vote for Green as it seems to be what he's smoking

Political discussions on forums always cause arguments and divisions, and regularly turn pretty toxic, which is why I never venture into the Non-Football section. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this.

Bearing that in mind, could these type of threads be confined to Non-Football, please?

A week's a long time in politics, so anything could happen, but it needs a lot to happen for it to do so. The obvious downside is that Reform don't really have the grassroots organisation UKIP had so that would need investment/restructuring/a lot of effort, so I could see an attempt at essentially acting as a parasite on a severely weakened Conservative Party happening.

Could argue that this happened in a different format with the MAGA set taking over the Republican Party, but a better comparison might be the Canadian political landscape after 1993 when the Progressive Conservatives got a quite historic shelling. They ended up merging with another party called the Canadian Alliance to form the Conservatives you see in Canada today.

I voted "no", I don't think the situation described is completely out of the question, but I think the Tories are more likely to head socially further off to the right to head off Reform in future.

No. Surely the real question Is can he do it on a wet Tuesday night in Stoke?

Yeah but does he prefer 4-3-3, or 4-2-3-1 or something else?

I hear he likes to overload the right, which is never a bad thing if the left is so weak.

Can't see what difference it makes if he's been awarded a chocolate medal

Add a lengthy ban to the OP so he may never darken our door again

It should be on the other side obviously but there are so many political threads already that a new one isn't that necessary. 👍👍

Ah yes nothing better than witnessing the age old battle between the less educated and/or morally dubious V those who think they are more educated than they actually are and for some reason morally infallible.

Then watch them completely miss any valid points the other makes in the race to see who has the stamina to not give up making their **** points in perpetuity.

More of those threads in the football section please.

Anyway, do we need a defensive midfielder or not?

Farage is in an idiot but no more so than Boris. Stranger things happen.
