"You would want to take over now?"
Why not? Now is a great time for a party with any direction to put itself forward. First we have an economy smashed by covid and the reaction to it so it will be a growing economy (makes any party look good) but also there is freedom to decide the direction of trade, laws, etc which could be taken from a pro-EU or pro-Global or even pro-Nationalist flavour. The existing gov has the scandals over covid (mostly a party) and taken the flack for brexit so any party (even tory) could easily look like a strong leader by actually having some policies.
Boris looked like a strong leader for a while before losing momentum, now its more of a void with speculation being more about his replacement in the party. Who outside the tories look viable for election? And I consider that a bad thing, we need a viable opposition.
