Time on the opposition benches could provide the currently “poisonous” Conservative Party with a “good road for self-discovery”, a political commentator has said. Luke Warren, from BCW Global, told GB News that he does not believe a Tory disaster at the next general election was “necessarily a bad thing”, arguing the last 12 years of Conservative rule had produced “a lot of fatigue” in the party. As fellow guest Anna McGovern, another right wing political commentator, shook her head in disbelief, Mr Warren cited the “dissent among the Tory backbenchers” as evidence the party needs a rehaul and that time in opposition might be the way to achieve that.
Asked if he was “afraid” the next few years could prove to be the Conservative Party’s last in power for a significant period of time, Mr Warren said: “I do not think that is necessarily a bad thing, though.
“I think 12 years of being in government comes with a lot of fatigue and a lot of poison in the Conservative Party.
“There is a lot of dissent among the Tory backbenchers, as we just saw on Wednesday.
“So, I think a bit of time on the opposition benches may be the thing for the party. It may be a good road for self-discovery and refinding our free market roots.”
The Labour Party have made notable gains in the polls on the Conservative Party since the beginning of Boris Johnson’s demise from Downing Street earlier this year.
In December last year, as accusations that Mr Johnson had presided over a rule-breaking culture in No10 during the pandemic began to surface, the popularity of the two parties was tied at 36 percent each, according to a Politico poll.
But as of October 21, there is now a sizable gap between Labour and the Conservatives, with the opposition party favoured by 54 percent of the polls respondents.
With the Tories earning the support of just 21 percent, that leaves a polling gap of 33 percent and suggests a general election would result in a landslide victory for Sir Keir Starmer.
On Sunday morning, the Labour leader repeated his calls for a national vote in light of the second Tory leadership contest in just four months, saying “the country needs change”.
He described the Conservative infighting and the revolving door of Downing Street as a “ridiculous, chaotic circus”.
He said: “The country needs change, the country needs stability, the country needs to get rid of this chaos, it’s been going on for the best part of 12 years, we don’t need another change at the top of the Tory party, we need a change of government.”
Sir Keir said an incoming government is going to have to “pick up a real mess of our economy of the Tories’ making”.

While the latest polls indicate that Sir Keir would win an election against both Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak, voting intentions often prove unpredictable.
Mr Johnson’s supporters claim that he is a “proven winner” and believe that, should he become prime minister for a second time this year, he would defeat Labour at the next general election.
Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak, as he officially announced he is running to become the next prime minister, said he would lead with “integrity, professionalism and accountability”.
Senior Labour MPs have reportedly voiced concern that a Sunak premiership could derail the opposition’s hopes of regaining power.
