New level of threat to UK government – related to militant Tory defectors – means election defeat is highly likely, though not necessarily imminent, according to Tom Pride.
The level of threat from the British electorate to the continued existence of the UK government has been raised from substantial to severe, Theresa May, the home secretary, has announced.
The move to distract the electorate comes after figures were released showing a large rise in net immigration to the UK which experts say could make attacks on government ministers in the near future “a real possibility“.
This also means that an election defeat in the near future is considered to be “highly likely“, and although May said there is no evidence to suggest a change of government is imminent, senior members of the Cameron cabinet are keen to make sure the public is fully distracted in the face of a reported threat from militant Euro-sceptics on the right-wing of the Tory Party.
