  1. It’s good to see a Remain Alliance could be on the cards in Brecon and Radnor. The question is will the Brexit Party stand against the Tory candidate and thus split the vote?Not putting up a Brexit Party candidate won’t look good for Farage, but at the same time the Tory candidate probably wants to try to retain the seat as a way of clearing his name.
    Normally I don’t like seeing parties stand down because it denies the electorate a choice, but with the Brexit issue being so important for now I feel it’s justified. A few years down the line, with Brexit I hope a forgotten memory, we could concentrate on electoral reform.
