Inspired by Macron??? They can go f... themselves. We've had 40 years of unbroken Conservative government thanks to the Tories and the Balirites. We don't need more Blairite centrist bullshit-mongers. That's what the Lib-Dems are for now.

FPTP doesn't work for multiple parties. In past times centrist parties have hurt Labour, but that is very unlikely now simply because the current Labour party has over half a million members.

Their ability to work the streets will overwhelm centrist parties who are usually the well funded creations of wealthy people playing at politics. They might be able to get some has-been and eager young things grouped together for a charming photo-op on College green in Westminster, but when it comes to putting people on the ground around the country, they'll come up very very short.
