We were supposed to have that with the party people elected into power in December. Sadly it didn't quite work out that way.

Never mind, Farage is recreating the Brexit part as Reform UK, and it's an anti-lockdown party, So, another single policy party to bring money to him, he made a fortune ot of Brexit party as it wasn't legally rgistered as a party, just a company whith him as the owner and shareholder.

Why can't people just leave him alone? I don't like him anymore than the next guy but the case is closed now. The press should just leave him in peace.

It's not only that. He's already long been a champagne socialist icon although that has certainly wained since he left the Labour leadership. At this point, the best thing for everyone including him is probably to leave him alone and allow him to wrap up his career and retire in peace. Hounding and taunting him like the right wing tabloids are trying to do at the moment isn't going to help anyone.

Thatcher is dead and she still gets grief. As for Corbyn if the media believes it will sell papers or get clicks online they will run stories about him. IDGAF about him anyway.

The problem Labour have is that the head may have been cut off but there are still many of his supporters corrupting the party.

Quicker ferry ride from driving from London rather than the Isle of Man ferry which means he would have to travel up North.
