I wish James Chapman luck but he’ll have his work cut-out.
For sure, Chapman has outstanding political skills but he’ll need to make Nigel Farage look like a character in a children’s pantomime to reverse the Brexit damage. Chapman will have to lead the heavy-hitters. Watch for big names to commit to Chapman, especially Conservative & Labour senior politicians.
Fear will be the dominant factor in UK politics in twelve months. The public are tired, hard-up and angry and at the moment they’re taken in by the Pied Piper of Islington. Meanwhile, the Conservative Party has been hijacked by shadowy right-wing politicians who are looking out for the best interests of the privileged.
james Chapman is staking his name to the middle ground of UK politics but can he reverse the magnetism of Far Right and Far Left populism?
