Policy: Farage surprisingly announced on Monday that he would make another bid to become an MP when Britons go to the polls on July 4.

This has led to increased support for his Reform UK party, according to a recent opinion poll conducted by YouGov.

According to the survey, Reform UK now has the support of 17 per cent of voters and is thus breathing down the Conservative Party’s neck. They get 19 percent in the survey.

Labor is still clearly in the lead and has the support of a whopping 40 per cent of those surveyed.

There are many indications that the Tories’ 14 years in power are now coming to an end in Great Britain and that Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will have to hand over the keys to Downing Street to Labor leader Keir Starmer after the election.
