The return of Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage announced on Monday that he will enter the general election race as leader of right-wing populist party Reform UK.

He previously said he would not stand in July’s election – but the former UKIP and Brexit leader has since changed his mind with the potential to “reset” the Conservative party by taking seats that perhaps were once considered safe.

Farage has unsuccessfully stood to be an MP 7 times – and many Tories are worried about how the announcement may split votes in some seats that they are desperately trying to hold onto, or were perhaps traditionally safe, spelling trouble for re-election whether or not Reform win seats of their own.

Let’s take a look and see how the media responded to this unexpected launch.
