It’s a grand political analysis

The consequence of the Tory’s political infighting and collapse as a cohesive political party has been the creation of a void in the centre-right of UK politics, which the Conservatives have vacated. To near-universal dismay, Labour has decided to fill that gap. As a result, there is now no party on the left-of-centre in the UK that has any current prospect of forming a government under a first-past-the-post electoral system.

No one will vote for the left of centre but this is proof that the left of centre would win an election.

Ho Hum

  1. The Fat Controller only now considers the Tories “centre-right” because they and Labour have become indistinguishable from one another. He’s overlooking a LibDem/Green coalition whose fundament badly needs a profound licking from the tuberous tongue.

  2. Odd. Many see the current Tory shower as being bizarrely left of center, hence the reason for the void where the center-right should be.

  3. The Tories abandoned the centre-right to move in on the left (heir to Blair, anyone?). Whatever happens, the left will win. All we can hope for is no overall majority and five years of political infighting, during which, they will leave us alone. Well, I can hope.

  4. So the SNP no longer qualifies as left-of-centre?
    What does then?
    I was going to suggest the British Communist Party, but that defines itself as the centre.

  5. ‘To near-universal dismay’ . . Labour has moved into the gap, has attracted likes from Rory Stewart, won the last two byelections in Selby and Bedfordshire and is 3 to 1 on to win the next GE outright.

To my dismay, Labour has decided to fill that gap. As a result, there is now no prospect of me getting a peerage or a job from them.

    Corrected it for Ritchie.

  7. Where’s the centre of UK politics? Would it be visible through the Webb space telescope from Conservative Central Office?

  8. @Ltw, Sir Arnold Robinson had so much more gravitas in identifying Sir Humphrey Appleby and himself as a considerable body of opinion.
