Brexit Party re-branding as anti-lockdown party Reform UK

The incompetent Tory government with their handling of Covid along with the lockdown has enabled the former Brexit party to learn another trick.

The party now says the “single most pressing issue” is the government’s “woeful response” to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Brexit Party has applied to change its name to Reform UK, admitting it is “time to re-direct our energies”.

When the Brexit Party held its policy launch ahead of last year’s general election, leader Nigel Farage said the organisation would most likely never be in power but could be the driving force behind getting governments to “support the little people”.

In a piece written for The Daily Telegraph, the party said it would continue to keep a “close eye” on Brexit but would focus more strongly on the institutions and policies that require change.

The party listed the House of Lords, the BBC, the voting process, law and order, and immigration, criticising “badly run, wasteful quangos” and describing the Home Office as “not fit for purpose”.

But the “single most pressing issue”, it said, was the government’s “woeful response” to the coronavirus pandemic.Advertisement

“The ‘strategy’ has been to terrify the nation into submission, coupled with a barrage of lockdowns, rules, regulations and threats. It is all about playing for time, in the hope that a vaccine miraculously comes along,” it said.

“This is no way to tackle a disease which may be around for a long time, perhaps forever. The consequences to wider health and the economy have been devastating.
