Five reasons to vote Reform UK today


IN MY view no thinking person has a choice but to vote Reform UK today. ‘Tactical’ voting thinking must be put to one side. It is pointless. The Tories are a spent force. They deserve to die, as we first argued years ago on TCW, a view we have never veered from. We did not fall for Boris Johnson.

Today I commit all our energies on TCW to ridding the country of that other segment of the uni-party, the execrable, anti-democratic, anti-family, anti-freedom and anti-country party that is called Labour. Like the Conservatives, the name belies the aims. It has long stopped advocating for or representing the working man. But, the only way we will succeed in making Labour die too is by backing a new political force in the country. There is but one. It has been granted to us in the shape of a newly invigorated Reform UK led by Nigel Farage.

Here are my five compelling reasons to take the plunge and vote for Reform UK. Three of them can be summed up in two words: Nigel Farage. But there is more to it:

1. It is our only – once in a generation – chance to start to set our country free. Take it!

2. We have a leader in Nigel Farage. He is unquestionably the outstanding, most dedicated and committed politician of this century. An ever-commanding figure, the heir to Churchill and Thatcher, head and shoulders above every living British politician, he is the only one amongst them who can communicate and lead.

3. Like Achilles, Farage, has been persuaded out his tent. Why did that story go down in history? You all know. Because it came at personal cost – the acceptance of responsibility and risk. For Farage it is a load to bear that will now weigh on every minute of his life. It is not enviable. But in that decision Farage upturned the political landscape and has possibly changed the course of British history. He found couldn’t stand aside. Neither should you. We owe it to him to get behind him.

4. Nigel Farage is a true and instinctive conservative. He has a comprehensive command of our country, its history and its current lamentable condition. He already brilliantly mapped out the reforms needed to halt its terrible decline into disorder, dysfunction and dependence, the reforms needed to restore personal and family autonomy and freedom; needed to restore democracy. Only he has the strength and determination to secure and protect our borders. Only he has a vision. To dismiss this all as mere ‘populism’ is wrong. It mischaracterises the need for fundamental reform and restoration that he alone amongst politicians has identified.

5. Where there is leadership, others with brains, ability and a sense of duty will follow. Those people who love their country exist but not in the current establishment. Take Zia Yusuf, whom I wrote about here. Who, I ask, with a true reformer at the helm, with the renewed hope in the future he offers, would not offer themselves, their skills and their expertise up? Who would not sign up to Farage’s veritable battle for Britain?

That five year battle starts today with your vote.
