Led by the Party’s new leader, Nigel Farage, Reform started making progress in the polls over the last few weeks, but now that appears to have changed.

Farage was appointed as leader on June 3, and the Party has since risen in popularity as right-wing Tory voters switched allegiance.

However, after significant gaffes from Farage and the scandal involving Andrew Parker, Reform’s popularity is dipping again.

Farage’s first mistake was announcing his belief that the West was responsible for the war in Ukraine.

Many of Britain’s right-wing voters have been touched by Ukraine’s struggles, with the UK attempting to lead the way in financial support of the nation at war with Russia.

Farage also controversially called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “clever” leader, insisting that he respects Putin’s ability to remain in power for so long.

According to Parker, the British Army should be deployed to “shoot” all the migrants attempting to cross the border illegally, causing Farage to respond.

Nigel Farage claimed that he was “disgusted” by the comments from the Reform volunteer and that he “did not know” why Parker was allowed to represent the Party.
