And in turn lose at least 80% of the membership. Wonderful strategic thinking as ever from you Mohammed, keep up the good work!!

I would love there to be a 'centrist' SDP mark II, as it would end up like Macron and his ludicrous outfit across the channel (i.e. rioting on the streets), which in turn, will definitively expose to the world how unpopular the Blairites in both parties and their idealogical creed is. Moreover, if the Tory party were finally able to shed it self of all its conservative-in-name-only parliamentarians and members it would then be free to finally pursue a truly one-nation, true-blue small-c conservatism that would have immense electoral support all over the country (granted, the cesspit that is London excluded), and I have no doubt such an outfit would then go on to win super majorities a la Maggie.

'I suggest we'll end up with three medium sized parties. For ease, let's call them the Corbyn party, the Rudd party and the Bone party.'

Let's cal them by their real names: the socialist party, the conservative party and the George Soros party....and I know which one you'd be in!!

The electorate will also have changed in 2021, 2023, 2025, and so on. Should we have a referendum in each of those years too?

'Sorry but they look like something one might find on a board at Broadmoor. How on earth did this wild-looking bunch get selected as Conservative MPs?'

Yes because May, Hammond and Soubry are an absolute cracking-looking bunch aren't they...

'Christendom, with its institutional expressions was a reality long before anyone talked of nation states.'

Really? China existed for centuries prior to the emergence of Christ and his followers.

I agree with you that the Soviet Union is the antithesis of the EU, primarly because it became so nationalistic and detached from Marxism. I have actually lived in France, and have immense fondness for Europe. My definition of pro-Europeanism means being friends with our neighbours, and perhaps even pooling a very small amount of sovereignty, such as the single market was originally meant to be.

I agree. I have said before we should of followed Varoufakis's - the only person prior to May to of attempted to 'negotiate' with the EU commission - advice and sought EEA membership immediately after the vote as a temporary vessel for say 5 years, whilst we negotiated a free trade deal. Alas, Nick Timothy and May's hubris and incompetency got in the way.

The EU is merely first stage. In 100 years time, the left will have its eyes on creating the same system, however, this time it will be for the world.

Again, like most Remainers, you mistake pro-Europeanism with pro-federalism. There are significant differences between the two. The dissolution of the nation state being the primary one.

Leave is Burkean conservatism, as it believes in the sacrosanct of the nation state as the greatest vehicle for lasting peace, security and prosperity man has ever known. Remain is radical leftism, with its roots in Marx, who saw at best, the nation state as a reactionary bourgeois creation, and at worse, a vile, violent creation that should be eradicated from human existence. Hence, the phrase 'workers of the WORLD unite!'. The only strange this is that there are apparent 'Conservatives' who not only support the most radical of Marx's ideas, but yet, are utterly ignorant of the fact and actually believe they are somehow 'Conservative'.
