Election diary: Nigel Farage snaps his fingers and his devoted sidekick steps aside
Jun 09, 2024 1 min, 0 secs

Nigel Farage’s latest attempt to break his general election duck – seven innings without troubling the scorers – was the week’s big moment.

Thoughts please for the now former Reform leader Richard Tice, who handed Farage the party reins after almost single-handedly fronting, funding and running it right up to the moment that anyone actually cared.

A few alarm bells ringing at CCHQ after Tory chairman Richard Holden, ostensibly in charge of the Conservative effort to get lots of people elected, secured his party’s nomination in Basildon and Billericay after seeing off precisely zero other contenders.

Ideally, the ever-competitive Holden may have preferred a constituency with no opponents or indeed voters, allowing him to dispense with the inconvenient democracy thing completely.

Whatever her media team hoped the headline might be after her big local newspaper interview, we can infer that “Truss: ‘I’m not worst PM ever’” wasn’t in their top five dream outcomes.

If only former Labour MP Keith Vaz had thought to sit down with his local paper and declare: “It was just the once that I implied to those Romanian male escorts that I was a washing machine salesman who could purchase drugs.” You live, you learn.
