The only way now to avoid a socialist government is for Rishi Sunak to step down or be removed, according to a growing number of leading voices on the right including the former party leader of the UK Independence Party, Henry Bolton OBE.

The Conservative party faced a hammering in the local and mayoral elections losing control of 10 councils and 473 seats, while Labour picked up 185 seats and won back councils it has not held in decades.

The awful news did not end there for Rishi Sunak. Under his leadership, the party also lost 10 out of 11 of the mayoral races, including a defeat in York and North Yorkshire – which covers the prime minister’s own constituency – and the conservatives also lost formidable Mayor Andy Street in West Midlands.

Henry Bolton, who is now President of the Primrose League said: “This is what happens when you communicate no vision, have weak leadership, a centrist CCHQ and fail to deliver on your promises. It is what happens when you are not conservative and when your word is no longer believed.

“Surely now, the Parliamentary Conservative Party must concede that they got it fundamentally wrong, that abandoning social and cultural conservatives to chase the centre-ground has been a mistake of epic proportions, as has been the Party’s failure to place the interests of the United Kingdom and the British people first. The Conservatives have allowed our history, culture, institutions and very identity to be assaulted and eroded.

“The only way now to avoid or mitigate an otherwise disastrous socialist government is for Rishi Sunak to step down or be removed, and for him to be replaced with a truly conservative leader determined to pursue and uphold true conservative values and aspirations.”

According to leading polling companies such as YouGov and Whitestone Insight, if the country went to the polls today, the most optimistic of predictions currently sees the Conservative Party losing nearly 200 seats, the worst loss of seats since Arthur Balfour in 1906, and would see Labour with a majority of 120.

YouGov today (9 May) predict the Labour Party would get a 452 majority. Can you imagine the damage Labour would do with a 452 seat majority?

Claire Bullivant, Editor of the Conservative Post says:

“If the Conservative Party want to save things they should start acting as if they’ve already lost now. Why wait until they’re removed from office to start rebuilding? They need to start listening to their members and the grassroots, get a leader in place who people will vote for, be conservatives and win this thing. There is still time. 

“The country is calling out for conservatism. The polls show even one in five 2019 Labour voters want conservative policies such as stopping the boats, saying no to net zero on steroids and putting at end to all the wokery. The Conservatives could still win this. They just need to start listening to their members and the people. They need to be democratic.”

A total of 53 letters are required from MPs to trigger a contest in Rishi Sunak’s leadership.

  1. Rishi isn’t to blame for this sh*t show. Boris Truss and Cameron have given some increase of the problem. Additionally the Conservatives had this problem in the 1990s and Labour in 2010. In early 2022 before Boris’ issues the polls were showing approx 8% below Labour.

    The Conservatives are going to lose. The issue is can the gap be reduced? Yes. But not by changing policies but fulfilling them and not by changing leader.

    Anyway, who would be acceptable to the party as a whole – not just the section this site represents – and, even more, who would be acceptable to the electorate, not dyed in the wool Tories.
