Stephen Flynn of SNP Would End Up As Leader of The Opposition.
Tories Relegated to Third Party.
A shocking poll for the Conservatives by 'Find Out Now' and 'Electoral Calculus' is out. 28,000 were questioned and what they answered is a literal nightmare on Downing Street for the Conservatives.
Chris Holbrook Chief Executive of 'Find Out Now' said "shocking reading for the Conservatives" and "mending perceptions of corruption is their best hope".
Martin Baxter Chief Executive of 'Electoral Calculus' have been far behind in the polls with no sign of improvement".
So if a snap election was called now it could see Rishi Sunak, Boris Johnson, Liz Truss, etc losing their seats.
Labour would get 49% of the vote easily putting them in government. The Conservatives would get 23% of the vote leaving them as the third party of the UK. The Lib Dems would improve their standing but Plaid Cymru and the Greens would stay the same. Reform would also improve but not get any MPs under this form of election.
The Scottish Nationalist Party would overtake the Conservatives. Leaving Stephen Flynn their leader as the leader of the opposition. That would make the SNP even more of a party for the UK, not just Scotland. Obviously, their main focus as the party of opposition would still be independence for Scotland.
Whoever becomes the next leader of the SNP and First Minister of Scotland will have power. But to have their leader at West Minister Stephen Flynn as leader of the opposition would give them greater leverage.
How have we arrived at this situation for Conservatives? It's pretty obvious when you look at the awful time the Tories have given the poorest amongst us. They have largely borne the brunt of Tory cuts. Then there's the sleaze and corruption that has always dogged the party. Other parties too suffer from this but it seems more prominent amongst the Tories. 5 disastrous Prime Ministers starting with David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak. Partygate didn't help either.
It's also possible many voters have woken up even Tory voters and seen what an awful administration we have. People are fed up with rising prices, particularly those on a certain low income. Those on better incomes and with more financial clout will be shielded from such things. Many of the Tory ministers around Sunak's cabinet table are millionaires like Chancellor Jeremy Hunt. Sunak Himself is a billionaire so how can they really understand the lives of the folk they supposedly serve?
Chancellor Jeremy Hunt will be unveiling his Spring Budget soon. People will be looking at the usual things like fuel, booze, and fags. How much those essentials that a lot of people use will go up by. Beyond that, there is the rising cost of living in buying goods and energy prices. What will Mr Hunt deliver and will there be help and hope? If not this will be another nail in the coffin of the Sunak administration.
It's possible many Conservative voters don't like Rishi Sunak. One because of his religion and ethnicity and two because Boris' supporters cannot forgive him for betraying (as it were) the former Prime Minister (as they see it). Let's be frank about it Sunak was part of the sleaze-ridden Johnson administration. Though he tried to distance himself from it he was part of it. So because of that, even those that liked Sunak now may see him as someone not to be trusted. Sunak and his dying support in the polls compared to Sir Keir only has himself to blame.
With Sunak giving away money yet again to Macron will not be popular either. Not be popular if it does stem the tide of migration. Not popular when our NHS and other institutions are collapsing. Our country is supposed to be the 6th richest nation in the world. It is for some but not for the majority of us. So it would appear Sunak is toast and if this is the case it's well overdue.
