Could the Conservative government be driving Landlords to the Brexit Party

Dr Rosalind Beck wrote an article for Conservative home titled, ‘It’s not just EU policy that’s driving conservative voters towards the Brexit Party.’ Click here to view the full article.

In this article Dr Beck quotes that 40% of Tory councillors and 60% of Tory activists say they will vote for the Brexit Party and asks if Nigel Farage’s prediction of a realignment of British politics is that far-fetched.

Dr Rosalind Beck told Property118: “Up until recently, private landlords were caught between a rock and a hard place. Many of us were still going to vote Conservative as the least bad option; something the Conservative Government knew. They thus felt they could attack us with impunity, knowing that landlords wouldn’t vote in a Marxist clique to run the country.

“Things have now changed and many landlords, like other groups and individuals, see the Brexit Party as a viable option. All the signs are that it is likely to be the most supportive of us of any party.  We will have to wait and see, however, what they come up with when they formulate their domestic policies.

“The Conservatives should be very worried.”

Reply to the comment left by Philip Graham at 20/05/2019 - 15:36Nobody can hate Labour more than me. I think they are the greatest danger this battered country faces right now, even much greater than Brexit. I hate all recent changes (pure robs-off for clarity) we LLs endured. I hate Osborne more than any other politician. I am fed up being an enemy of everyone here. That why I am on this forum. I 200% agree with your statement about socialism. But I do not think voting the Brexit Party, which is based on undocumented and unproved wish-list is going to change our life as Landlords.
I really do not understand why Farage is taking part in European Election, if he constantly maintain that we have no say and no influence. So it does not matter if his EU-hating party is in or out. If I were him, I would concentrate on domestic issues, not on EU election and membership, which is absolutely meaningless right now. Maybe he should at least outline to people (incl LLs) general points of his great plans?

I am hoping the Brexit party develops into a true no. 3 political party in our system.

The two party system is dying and we need new parties to step into the breach. I just hope we start to get the non PC politician back into power. We need common sense to steer our country onto a positive path.

I think at the moment the Brexit party doesn't really have properly thought out policies on many areas of governance. They know they are needed and they are going to just try and get on and make an impact and address the bigger issues as they move on and gain some decent power. They have my vote any how.

What makes people think that LLs want to leave the EU?

Michael, makes a valid point. Some landlords will want to leave and others will want to remain.
My take is as follows. I will vote for the party which promotes business and does not engage in policies which will destroy the PRS. I dont know what Farrages exact policies will be on these fronts, however i do not for one minute believe he will be anti business therefore i would be more than happy to take a chance on him. Corbyn and his loons will destroy the economy and burden us with debt for ever so that rules out the anti semitic terrorist loving Labour. We have had the pleasure of Mays useless Tories and their anti business agenda/landlord bashing. The Tories mistake was to think that we had no where else to go. Wrong.
The only other possibility is the Lib Dems who are also flaky on business but they are not terrorist loving marxist nutters so perhaps they could form Hm opposition.
Bin the Tories and Labour.

My "student" numbers are down but as none were from the EU anyway that suggests that correlation as you see it may not be causation?
