As the result comes through it is very clear that the Conservative Party needs to be challenged with the way that they are behaving on so many levels. The idea as expressed by John Redwood in his reaction to the crash in the election last night that his Government needs to listen to his backbench MPs is one classic example of how things are damaging. Another case that is very disturbing is the call by other Backbench Tory MPs that Chris Whitty is in charge According to this Telegraph section
Conservative backbenchers hit out at the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) after he told the public to prioritise events that “really matter”, signalling that less important gatherings should be skipped to curb the spread of omicron.
In reality what is needed for our Nation is not that the Conservative Party should be dominating the decision making, but actually we need political leaders across the various groups to be working together to deal with a number of issues together. Our Nation is far more important than the political agencies. Helen Morgan who won the election was the only candidate who stood in the seat two years ago during the 2019 election. Sadly Graeme Currie who had been the Labour Candidate in 2015, 2017 and 2019 was not the candidate for the Labour Party this year. However there are other elements such as cooperation between parties such as the Greens, Labour and the Liberal Democratic Party that need to be strengthened so that we can see a strong alternative to the Conservative dominance in our political situation moving forward.
