I rather think you have a particular vision of “Conservative thought” though. I have too, of course, but I regard myself as a traditional Tory with libertarian add-ons. You’re not one of those at all, if I read your posts correctly.

“ .. this site has now abandoned all pretense of a connection with Conservative thinking ”
Really? It’s true that the Conservative Party abandoned traditional Toryism ages ago, but in terms of the Party’s current position I’d have thought ConHome was pretty straight shooting.

You’re clearly not.

He’s somewhat more of one than his predecessor, the atrocious Sarah Wollaston - but that’s not saying much. One should instantly start counting the spoons on hearing somebody refer to “modern compassionate Conservatism”. Of course, Mangnall has to steer a delicate course, catering both to the crusty backwoods knee jerk Tories in his constituency, and to the wacky internationalist tree-huggers in & around Totnes.

I doubt anyone would pay to consult your crystal ball.

I cherish these old chestnuts you’re so fond of regurgitating. Mind you, the tired suggestion that we voted Leave because we’re so dimwitted as to vote on the basis of “lies” put out by these mysterious “Brexit Cult Campaigners” is at least as insulting as the patronising twaddle you come out with so regularly.
Overall, you’re more foolish than wicked: mature, reasonable, educated people are aware that non-voters do not count, and that our elections work on a majority basis. And if well over one-third of the electorate voted Leave (in the largest vote in our history) that’s well ahead of quite a few General Election winning results.

No-one is suggesting that, actually, but feel free to lock yourself up if you enjoy that sort of thing.

Forty-one years gave more than enough time for the world to change considerably, and for the EEC to morph into the EU - a different kettle of fish for which we had not voted. What you and your chums want, by contrast, is to dump the democratic mandate provided a mere four years ago. That is not just dishonourable, it shows contempt for the democratic process.

You’ll still be whining your exhausted clichés decades from now - not in a public platform, one hopes.

One of your dafter assertions, which is saying something. Abandon your attempts at political analysis: take up collecting beermats, or something.
