Absolutely correct. Just as hounding Farage has made him hugely popular. I expect Boris to laugh all the way to Number 10. It also keeps in the public eye just how much the EU rips us off for. The debate will be if it is not 350m, how much is it? It's still a fortune and a rip off.

As a 9% party the Tories would lose every seat in Parliament. Do you accept that the Tory Party is facing an existential crisis and that the only possible way to survive beyond this Parliament is to leave the EU on or before Halloween with or without a deal, no matter what?

Total Leave vote 7.6m. Total Remain vote 7.1m. Labour was the only party not to include a Leave/Remain position in its mailings, so it is not included in these figures, but it IS officially a Leave party as well.

It isn't really one member one vote. It's a very patronising choice of only two, the tiniest crumb of democracy. The barest minimum. It makes much more sense to require MPs to achieve x per cent of support from other MPs - probably 15% - and allow all to go forward to the membership. At most you would get a field of six. With the current system we can see most candidates are just entering to gather a little group around them in order to screw a cabinet position out of one of the others. At this time of existential crisis this is shockingly self indulgent and seems to indicate that MPs have not understood what being a party of 9% means.

Hammond will do no such thing. The Tories are facing wipeout.

Like you know 'the truth' of the matter. Defect to the LibDems, if we don't leave the Tory Party is stone dead.

Daniel, you need to readjust. The Tories are a 9% Party, Labour 14%. The Brexit Party is where it's at. They won't be doing a deal to save a bunch of fat old Tory MPs' seats. They intend to eliminate you. This utter farce of a leadership election into which every minnow is self indulgently leaping is evidence that Tory MPs have not understood they are in an existential crisis and are 95% towards extinction already. You no longer get to dictate how it's going to be. The page has turned.

Incorrect analysis.

Labour surged in England in 2017 only after it offered to abolish student fees and all student debt. In Scotland, where there are no fees, the Tories surged and gained their highest seats for over 30 years. Free education is a noble thing and grand- parents and parents back it as well as students and those with historic debt.

Tories have not much switched to LibDems, they have switched to the Brexit Party. It is Labour voters who have gone to the LibDems and Greens. The Tories MUST deliver the full Brexit to neutralise the Brexit Party. The Brexit Party just gained more votes than any two of the Cons, Labour or LibDems combined. It has been a disaster for the Tories to move towards Labour and the LibDems. The only election win since 1992 was 2015 when Cameron offered the referendum. The previous 4 big wins were all when the Tories pitched right under Thatcher. It's blatantly obvious how to win. Labour wins from the centre but the Tories win from the Right.

You don't know their pluses because they don't have any.
