Lets be honest many vote Tory believing they'll be tough on immigraiton

However Boris Johnson, like every other Tory leader has shown he's all for it


Millions from Hong Kong, Afghnistan
Do nothing stopping people crossing over from France

Needless to say, they're no better than Labour if not worse


So the question is why do we not have a party that represents its voters?

Also Boris is a clown, handled covid terribly.

UK deserves a better alternative. Time Tory voters wake up, jump ship and create an alternative.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britain_First - these people are described as having a ‘British fascist’ ideology maybe you’ll prefer this

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brit...c_Party_(2013) - right-wing populism if that makes you happy

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_National_Party - another party described as ‘British fascism’

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britannica_Party - oh look, another party described as ‘British fascists’

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Democrats - English nationalists

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Front_(UK) - these aren’t even described as ‘British fascism’ just ‘fascism’

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nati...rty_(UK,_1999) - anti-capitalists

I don’t agree with your ‘right-wing’ political beliefs but you saying there are no right wing parties is utter BS.

These are only some of your options if you REALLY want to be on the far far right

Having few right-wing parties (or having few parties of either side) is actually beneficial, as it concentrates the 'right-wing vote' with one party (which makes them more electorally successful).

If the Conservatives did actually shift to the right, then there is very little competition for them. Compare that to the Left where you have Labour, Lib Dems, SNP and Greens all fighting on similar ground.

There are of course a plethora of tiny, irrelevant parties on both the Left and Right although it's not worth noting them considering they're unlikely to ever win a single seat let alone form a government.

Tories are basically fighting on the left side at the moment remember. So the left wing side of the spectrum is teeming with parties.

The UK has many right wing parties. The trouble is that our electoral system is set up in such a way that disuades people from voting for anything other than the main two (Conservative and Labour), even if there are other parties out there which better represent their views. There are exceptions to this, e.g. in the case of regionalism with the SNP and Plaid Cymru being viable in Scotland and Wales.

If the Conservative party moved further right then it would lose interest from centre-ground voters, hence why it has gradually shifted closer to the centre over time.

If you want a real right wing party: demand electoral reform. Demand proportional representation, which to date the right wing have been the greatest opponents of.

Please do not call Mr Johnson a clown. Have some respect for clowns.

In any case, there are right wing parties, and I'd consider the Tories one of them. It's the far right that have very little support electorally in this country, unlike say in France, the Netherlands, or AFD in Germany.

These are all far right parties (with the exception of the TUV which is a party of Northern Ireland). There are plenty of other parties which are anti-immigration but not far-right, most notably Reform UK (just like Farage's UKIP was). Also the SDP.

Lets be honest many vote Tory believing they'll be tough on immigraiton

However Boris Johnson, like every other Tory leader has shown he's all for it


Millions from Hong Kong, Afghnistan
Do nothing stopping people crossing over from France

Needless to say, they're no better than Labour if not worse


So the question is why do we not have a party that represents its voters?

Also Boris is a clown, handled covid terribly.

We do!

UKIP
Brexit party
British National Party

are all far right wing parties. If you’re wanting further to the right than that then you’re talking about violent extremist groups like the EDL and Combat 18 becoming political parties.

Because generally speaking, we are a centrist country. Labour lost the last couple of elections because Corbyn planted the flag firmly on the left and now we have a Tory party behaving more like a traditional Labour party e.g. furlough, eat to help out etc etc.

What we are discovering right now, is that we are not a country of populism either. Boris doesn't really have a political ideology. He will just say whatever he thinks will make people like him.

I can guarantee that if anyone got in who was openly and outright tough on immigration, it might sit will to start with, but then the stories of brutality at the hands of the British would start to seep out and it would all make pretty grim reading for anyone with even a modicum of compassion.

OP is a troll who made a single post and appears to be a racist, unless he seriously thinks being 'right wing' is solely about hating foreigners..
