Got Brexit Done, What’s next for the politics of the hard right?
By Aaron Williams on 2nd November 2020 the eve of the american election.
The prime minister almost into a year into his tenure of his landslide victory which he achieved after a snap general intended to ‘Get Brexit Done’. Now pioneer of the Brexit argument and the reason why we ended up with the Brexit referendum in 2016 that lead to Britain leaving the European Union. Former leader of the UKIP party, then leader of the Brexit Party with seeing Brexit is now in the eyes of the prime minister minus a trade deal. Farage, intended to rebrand the single issue party more or less pressure group as the Reform U.K. Party. Similar aims to what Laurence Fox former average actor sidekick to tv detective Lewis lesser so called musician now a man with provocative opinions that feels entitled to share on talk radio stations LBC, News UK’s talk radio (which for 15 million Farage is interested to buy).
The reclaim party similarly to the aims of Reform U.K. is raring to fight culture war issues that the Conservative libertarian hard right are likely to support. Both Fox and Farage are spoken to be not compliant with the lockdown rules sent out by the conservative government seeing as a totalitarian and draconian measures. Farage’s party is looking to contest seats in next years Senedd, Holyrood and local elections under the policies to reform the BBC to shake it up much a BBC skeptic like the tabloid radio he intends to buy out. The parties other policies aim to focus on issues that he hopes could attract even remainers which seems laughable since his character is so loathed by those who wish Britain was still in the European Union focusing on policies to scrap the House of Lords and introduce proportional representation.
With focusing on politics beyond Brexit and with more right lesions media becoming more popular with Andrew Neil chaired news station GB News and New Murdoch owned right wing news and entertainment channel the BBC cracking down on virtue signaling and whatever is seen political suppressing workers rights of free speech in transphobic and queer-phobic manner will likely with Tim Davie as Director General see a BBC move more to the right. Even as said Farage could buy Talk radio himself a political leader owning a media outlet, a conflict of interest some might say. Its going to be a case of watch and see of what angry right wing British politics has for the the future. Whats for certain the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election and the unrest and events that follow will be felt across the pond. As where American goes history says others follow.
