Tory chairman Richard Holden asked if it is time to ‘get out brandy and revolver’ as party braced for worse loss in 40 years

Tory chairman Richard Holden was asked if it is time to “get out the brandy and a loaded revolver’” as his party is set for a “catastrophic” election loss.

Britain’s top polling guru Professor Sir John Curtice said the election “could be one of the worst, if not the worst, Conservative performances in local government elections of the last forty years.

Appearing on LBC on Friday (3 May), presenter Nick Ferrari asked Mr Holden if now is the time to “get out the brandy and a loaded revolver”.

Mr Holden laughed and replied: “Certainly not, no.”
