Conservative MP’s are in a panic this evening as Nigel Farage hit the launch button on a brand new party “Reform UK”. Farage and Tice are set to rattle Westminster as they send a firing shot at the launch on Monday saying” Lockdown’s don’t work”. Farage and Tice are set to give an alternative stance to the consistent economic crushing lockdowns that have been driven by the conservatives with no end in sight.
One of the leading “Reform UK” policy as it starts up is “focused protection”. This means only the most vulnerable will be adequately protected, and the healthy will keep hygiene high and get on with life to develop herd immunity.
The change in name from The Brexit Party to Reform UK is awaiting approval from the Electoral Commission, the notice to change the name was handed in last week. The coming May elections will see a stream of candidate standing.
In regards to the position on lockdown, Nigel and Tice told the Telegraph that “lockdowns don’t work”. They went on to mention the Great Barrington Declaration which is backed by the finest epidemiologists and medics in the world.
They go on to say: “Focused protection is the key, targeting resources at those most at risk: the elderly, vulnerable or those with other medical conditions. Many of them, of course, would prefer to hug their grandchildren and enjoy a family Christmas with loved ones. They should not be criminalised for the simple acts that make life worth living, particularly in their final years.
“The rest of the population should, with good hygiene measures and a dose of common sense, get on with life. This way, we build immunity in the population. The young act as warriors, creating a shield of protection. Multi-generational households will, of course, need to implement stricter measures.”
This direction from a new party will relieve the build-up of anger and give a platform to those who have an alternative view to constant government shutdowns, prediction driven advice, and media fear narratives that have been forced upon us for nearly 12 months.
What’re your thoughts on this? Are you supportive of this new move from Tice and Farage?
