Dis-United For Change

That new centrist party the LoveFilm founder is pouring millions into just lost its Credit Suisse banker co-founder and CEO, Adam Knight who according to The Times has “left with some of his staff and is running a new outfit.”

Knight is apparently calling his even newer centrist party ‘Twelve Together’, an obscure reference to the 1994 division of the UK into twelve regions, which since 2011 have served no devolved administrative function.

Guido’s list of pop-up centrist parties keeps growing.

  • Jeremy Cliffe’s The Radicals
  • James Chapman’s The Democrats
  • Jolyon Maugham’s Spring The Party
  • Chris Coghlan’s Renew Britain
  • Simon Franks’ United for Change
  • Adam Knight’s Twelve Together

A lot of middle aged men think they’re Britain’s Macron…

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
