Yes I watch Peston, without being totally a “Follower” as well. I think I expressed similar views on some of these threads, regarding Mr Farage and the interaction of the “Potential 3 parties” liable to pull votes at a General Election.
I’m not sure he has a preference as such. I’m sure He (and everyone else) would feel incredibly frustrated and Angry, should the “Remoaners” manage to spoil the election process Again ! by putting another “wimp” in place. And THAT WOULD in my opinion Bring down the Tories without doubt and probably terminally ! - Leaving the potential for 18 or 20 million to vote “Brexit Party” at a General Election !
It is true that many of the followers are desperately disappointed Tories - but a great many come from Labour voters as well.
However, I was at one of his rallies and have watched a number of them and the Vitality of the PArty and the support base comes from the slogan "Change Politics for GOOD "
The danger that the “usual suspects” try to classify the Party as just another Protest Party and expect it to fade away - may just cost the " Broken 2 Party system" dearly.
I have to say that personally I have always been against “PR” - but am rapidly changing my mind - except that it potentially gives political power balance possibilities to all sorts of “Crackpot” minority groups. But on the other hand just having two totally incompetent and in honesty undeserving (I hesitate to expand on that) groups of parasites just “taking the money and the expenses” without us being able in practice to remove them because "Careerists" of the two groups are just as bad as each other !
For either of the other two parties to be in “Co-operation” with the Brexit PArty, I think negotiations would need to occur.
The principle being that "This is not about Right and Left - It’s about Right and Wrong" !
