“Lib Dem spokesperson: “We’re not just going to win, we’re going to win comfortably. This is an amazing night for the Liberal Democrats and a disaster for Boris Johnson.”” (Peter Walker, 16.12.2021).
That the Liberal Democrats (Lib-Dems) wins the North Shropshire By-Election and with that claims the Member of Parliament from that area is shocking. This is the electoral district that has voted for a Conservative Party Member for over 200 years. That says it all really.
This is a Brexit positive and a Conservative haven, which have switched and voted in protest at another party. So, Lib-Dem Helen Morgan is becoming historic with the victory in the constituency. To take it from the Tories is a feat and no one can take that away from the Lib-Dems.
What is striking is how inept and sleazy the Tories has been. They have already lack of support and the sentiments across the board is weakening. The rebellion within its own mist in combination of this loss. Proves that the Prime Minister is a dead man walking politically and the 1922 Committee might send a vote of “no confidence” his way.
Alas, North Shropshire went to the Lib-Dems… that’s a victory for the people and against the corrupt and inept ruling government. Which have lived like they are above the laws and the rules. As the men who could break lockdown regulations and party the nights out. While others couldn’t see their loved ones. There was enough sleaze with the Cummings last year visiting castles and whatnot. Now, there been even more action at Downing Street No. 10. Therefore, the public is disgusted by the attitude and the actions of the ones in-charge.
That Owen Paterson scandal made this all happen, as his inner-works and misuse of office became clear. Which made him resign and open a by-election. The Tories would never think they would loose this seat. The Tories have had this seat since 1832. That is having control of this forever and shouldn’t be possible for others to win.
Alas, the Lib-Dems and the public showed them it was possible. This is really changing and showing what sort of mess the Prime Minister is creating. He has such a bad influence and reputation. That he can distort and make them loose in place of which, has been the Tories stronghold since forever.
This is a massive defeat and a huge loss. This is an epic failure of the Tories and the PM. In a place and a constituency, which has been for ages only Tories. Suddenly, the Lib-Dems take it and it’s fantastic. A smack in the face and a humiliating loss. That is what this is and it’s not even with a small margin.
North Shropshire is answering back. The public is not accepting everything the Tories and does. The public sentiment is maybe even changing, and they are seeing the shadiness of the leadership of the hour. Therefore, this could be the message that the tide is turning. If not…
Its at least gives us hope that these populist elitists cannot win forever or be unchallenged. Since, this election proves there is hope for good candidates. Peace.
