The Conservative Party may yet secure a majority in the next general election

The results of the local elections would seem to confirm that Boris Johnson is not trusted and is, therefore, an electoral liability, while Labour under Keir Starmer is not seen by many as an assured alternative.

Given a change of Tory leadership from the venal Johnson to a more rational and measured politician, the party may yet secure a majority in the next general election despite 12 years of ill-directed chaos and confusion that has left the nation more divided than before it came to office.
