    He forgot to mention that he'll serve the aristocrats, the upper class, and the working class, before snickering at the last one.

    But imagine being on record defending this man's character and fitness for office!

    Thorough repudiation of the Rwanda policy, as expected.

    Toryblades respond with calls to break the law, as expected

    The Bill must enable flights before the next general election
    Legislation must therefore circumvent the lengthy process of further domestic litigation, to ensure that flights can take off as soon as the new Bill becomes law. To do this, the Bill must exclude all avenues of legal challenge. The entirety of the Human Rights Act and European Convention on Human Rights, and other relevant international obligations, or legislation, including the Refugee Convention, must be disapplied by way of clear “notwithstanding” clauses.
    Judicial Review, all common law challenges, and all injunctive relief, including the suspensive challenges available under the Illegal Migration Act must be expressly excluded. Individuals would, however, be given the chance to demonstrate that they had entered the country legally, were under 18, or were medically unfit to fly – but Home Office decisions on these claims could not be challenged in court.

    It doesn't seem to have moved the overall polls too much, maybe +3-5 for Reform, hard to pick out where exactly the votes are coming from from the overall noise of the polls and other campaign events. The issue is that that Tories' don't have that many votes to spare. Although current projections have winning something on the order of 150 seats, many of those seats are marginal enough to be within the typical opinion poll error range. Anything that shifts the polls much more in Labour's direction (polling error, another swing to Labour, third party taking votes off the Tories) could turn a disaster (150 seats) into an apocalypse (50-60 seats), which would be the difference between being out of power for a couple of terms and out of power for a generation or more.

    Also, polls show that Farage has a negative rating amongst Labour voters and a positive one amongst Tory voters, so most of the damage he does will be to the Tories.

    Reform within 1% of the Tories
    Lib Dems within 3% of the Tories
    Tories are closer to the Greens than they are to Labour.

    I bet they wish they instituted PR.

    I don't think that would necessarily increase their seats by too much, mostly it would massively harm Labour and benefit Reform, so I guess it depends on who they hate more.
