Of course there is a point in being a member Peter. You are interested in politics, dislike Labour, particularly now under Corbett, and we are the bulwark against keeping him out.

The view has changed on Brexit now and is more aligned to what the majority of members think - and that is rather more heavily pro leaving than the general population.

We have the majority of MPs, nobody else won. It is our mandate that counts and the Labour one, even if they don't know what they are doing now.

"Brexit is demanding and divisive because it really matters"

You could leave out the words after Brexit and between 'really matters'.

You were elected on a mandate of leaving the customs union and single market. The Labour Party stood on a similar mandate of leaving the EU, remaining in either is not leaving the EU.... so the majority of MPs in Westminster were voted in with the expectation that we would leave. You should not be using the debate on the customs union to stay in it, but to leave completely. You weaken Mrs May's position by taking the stance that you do. YOU, Ms Morgan, need to get behind the PM and tell her she has your loyalty, that you won't seek to undermine her and that you will help her to get a deal with the EU that doesn't give us the worst of all worlds - adherence to some part of the EU, with no representation.

We are leaving, please enable it and don't get in the bloody way.

What we need.... is more MPs engaging with their Associations, inspiring them to grow their memberships, finding speakers to fundraise, generating an esprit de corps that makes us campaign together. We need to be down on the ground, door knocking. We are a broad church, and we don't always agree on every issue. Lets coalesce around the ones that bind us, personal responsibility, a belief in freedom of choice, supporting the weak, enabling business to be successful and to generate more tax to do all the things that Govts should be doing in a modern civilised society, whilst avoiding twiddling with taxes and inadvertently making things worse (diesel cars and PCPs come to mind here).

What we don't need are more groupings in Westminster putting up yet different ways to take on Labour. We should be 'us' and making the case for 'us'.

But at the time they were elected, they were in favour of it... and therefore there is a huge mandate for it.

Well Labour campaigned on it too, so there Is a huge majority.

You think the problem with Conservatives is that they are too "lovely"?

We are lovely - what's wrong with you? :)

I thought the Lords were obliged to respect manifestos upon which Govts are elected and that being the case, I am sure Mrs May would have said no CU, no SM...

I think we are as shocked about this as everyone else.
