Your comment is awaiting moderation.
May is part of the political class’s plan to usher in the Centrist party.(top down bureaucratic govt with no elections =one-party state =Juncker’s preferred option). That’s why she doesn’t give a stuff about what the grassroots think or about destroying the Conservative party. Corbyn similarly is making a Labour government untenable. Into the void steps Cable (who has been out to Brussels stirring the pot) and his move to bring in an unelected leader, rumoured to be she who must not be mentioned in case the internet collapses (g.m). Today, Tiny Tim Fallon is squeaking up about a centrist party. The rump of the Libdem party (12 MPs) will form the launch pad. Blair in everything but name (too toxic). Et voilà, that’s top and bottom of it. The Hammond/May spat is merely a confected diversion to keep our eyes off the ball.

It’s already hapåpened with En Marche? come from nowhere.Same thing happening in Germany and here in Sweden we already have PR and a hung parliament as a default setting.

Hi Mike, worryingly all the gatekeepers of all stripes are frontrunning a Third Party arising from the ashes, even Farage. A precursor to a one part state. A comment in an article you linked to some time ago got it right I think.
“The computer continues to show that both parties will decline and a third party will rise from the ashes.” Oh good lord Nostrafuckindamus already?

Instead of rushing Brexit, Europe’s leaders should be trying to avert it, by persuading British voters to change their minds. The aim should not be to negotiate the terms of departure, but to negotiate the terms on which most British voters would want to remain.
LONDON – How should the European Union respond to the narrow decision by voters in the United Kingdom to leave? European leaders are now focusing, rightly, on how to prevent other countries from leaving the EU or the euro. The most important country to be kept in the club is Italy, which faces a referendum in October that could pave the way for the anti-euro Five Star Movement to take power.
Europe’s fear of contagion is justified, because the Brexit referendum’s outcome has transformed the politics of EU fragmentation. Before, advocates of leaving the EU or euro could be ridiculed as fantasists or denounced as fascists (or ultra-leftists). This is no longer possible.
Brexit has turned “Leave” (whether the EU or the euro) into a realistic option in every European country. Once Britain gives the Union formal notice (by invoking Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon), that option will enter the mainstream of political debate everywhere. Research by the European Council on Foreign Relations has found 34 anti-EU referendum demands in 18 other countries. Even if each of these challenges has only a 5% chance of success, the probability of at least one succeeding is 83%.

Mainstream television “news” is now so awful – off the point, dumbed down biased, D-noticed and neo-propagandist codswallop mixed with lachrymose little boy saves tiger ‘human interest’ vomit – it’s time someone found another word for the generic.
This morning’s risible effort on Sky Sunrise was a classic. The broadcaster gave two full in-depth “reports” on the police task of dealing with “Far Right Extremism” – which is now, we are told, “the fastest-growing form of violent political action” in the UK.
Nothing in the way of investigative journalism was involved in the feature. I can reveal that the Met Police approached Sky with the idea – not the other way round: not exactly an auspicious start to proceedings.
Throughout last year at various points, the Left-leaning media ran stories claiming that white ‘Far Right’ Briton terror arrests outnumber Left or Islamic arrests. That is a bizarre way to…
