Three conservative parties means none has a chance

There are potentially three conservative or family values parties looking to fight the next election.

  • The New Conservatives, the successor party to Colin Craig’s party
  • The Coalition Party, led by
  • A possible led party

Even if there was only one family values type party contesting the election, making 5% would be difficult. With two or even three parties competing, they are doomed to failure.

Their best bet would be to do what Christian Heritage and Christian Democrats did in 1996 and form the Christian Coalition with separate identities but a combined list. You get six MPs if you make 5% so each party would get two of the top six spots.
