The United Kingdom is often described as a two-party state – meaning that one of only two domestic political parties can win a general election and form a government.
If that is true, then the UK is in big trouble because neither of the two largest parties here – Conservative or Labour – is fit to govern in their current form and under their current leaders.
If you want the proof, look to the public and find out what they’re saying. Here’s just a smattering of comments about both Labour and the Tories, based on current events, from the social media:
In my opinion, if labour gets into power, the UK is in serious trouble.

In an experiment, 90% of people could not tell if a policy or a quotation was Sunak’s or Starmer’s

The whole country now knows that Sunak and his ministers are more or less uniformly corrupt and dishonest. They don’t have majority support of the electorate , and their Tory VIP associates have stolen about £ 14 billion from the taxpayer. Why on earth are they still in office ?

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to imagine the NHS ever fully recovering from 13 years of Tory neglect when the only possible replacement government are up to their eyeballs in private healthcare cash before they’ve even won anything.

Keir Starmer & his stooges sabotaged Jeremy Corbyn's election chances in 2017 & 2019 so they could regain control of the Labour party. They installed this corrupt Tory regime for their own selfish careerist reasons. If you vote Labour at the next election, you're rewarding snakes

My personal conclusion is in my reply to the Tory berk who wrote the following post:
The biggest threat to our economy is a government led by either Labour or the Conservatives. They are two cheeks of the same flatulent right-wing rump
— Mike Sivier (@MidWalesMike) August 16, 2023
The simple yardstick for all of the above is the different parties’ policies.
Do either Labour or the Conservatives have any policies that you want to see inflicted on you, personally? Did they have any policies you wanted and supported, only to find that party leaders reneged on them? Do you honestly think you can trust them?
If not, you need to find someone else.
Who are the other political organisations in your constituency? What are their policies?
There is always someone better out there. Find them.
