Point of order, Chair.

The majority of the electorate in the UK do not belong to any political party.

I would imagine that the majority of the electorate do not read any party manifesto in great detail.

I also suspect that a lot of the electorate would not agree with every item on the said manifesto, when they decide where to place their X on the ballot paper.

I certainly think that the manority do not give a shit about the plots and counter plots consuming so much of party members time. They want someone to run the government for the benefit of the country not for the benefit of the mps.

Down here, the complaint is that people do not see councillors etc., out and about, talking to people and finding out what they want. I know that covid has played a big part in that, but it is something that Labour need to address if they hope to make any headway.

People are losing interest in voting. I think that we are all agreed that is not a good thing.
