Reform Party's Richard Tice SNUBS offer to work with UKIP to form new right-wing party
Rebecca Jane claimed Richard Tice had ignored requests for talks between UKIP and Reform
Rebecca Jane has said that Richard Tice snubbed talks of launching a new right-wing party made up of pre-existing splinter parties.
The deputy leader of UKIP joined Philip Davies and Esther McVey on GB News to discuss the political landscape in the UK and the potential for a unified right-wing party being launched to rival the Conservative Party.
She revealed that all but one splinter party has agreed to create an “amalgamation” of the parties - Richard Tice’s Reform Party.
Asked what the chances of UKIP, the Reform Party and the Reclaim Party all uniting and forming one joint party together in 2023, she said: “It's a really good question all of the centre-right splinter parties do predominantly agree on the majority of issues, and we certainly do.
“So I was only made deputy about three months ago, and my first job was actually to try and start creating this alliance. And thankfully, we are getting somewhere with this. And I'm pretty excited for January because we've got more to come.
“I will say that every splinter party has agreed to potentially talk about an amalgamation, with the exception of one.

“Richard Tice has directly refused to have the conversation, which is very unfortunate because we're being seen every single day. People are asking us to do this, to at least talk.
"Our point is, let's just have the conversation and see where we can go. So we have started having the conversations. There is a plan potentially being put in place as to how we can all come together. But yes, the country needs one.
Asked if there is a name pencilled in for the newly formed party, Ms. Jane said: “I will say that we have a plan for that as well. We have a plan for who will be leader, how it will look and what the name will be. At the end of January, come back to me.”
It comes as exclusive GB News polling revealed the Conservatives are trailing Labour by 26 per cent heading into the New Year.
Labour is on 45% of the national vote, the Conservative Party is down to 19%, the Liberal Democrats on 8%, the Greens on 9% and Reform on 8%. This represents a three-point fall for Conservative, increasing the gap between the two parties to 26 points.
