Another interesting commentary on potential developments for more Conservative blood-spilling.
'Davis distrusts coronations – of the Conservative kind, that is. There is irony in that fact, since he is the only serving Tory politician who has guaranteed one, withdrawing in 2003 in favour of Michael Howard. But he recognises that a Conservative leader needs to command the Party; that authority usually flows from winning a leadership election, fair and square, and that May’s leadership would have been been acquired an extra layer of legitimacy had the contest she won in 2016 gone to the membership stage.
'Furthermore, the prospect of an uncontested poll looks like a Westminster fantasy. Why should a Sajid Javid or a Penny Mordaunt – to name only two Cabinet members who might be put by their colleagues before party members – not seize their moment to win the leadership, rather than risk it fading away? Either of them – let alone Johnson – might fancy a smash-and-grab raid on it. That, after all, was what David Cameron launched in 2005. The man he beat was Davis.'

500 thousand British died in world war II alone for 'us' to have a foot hold in Europe. Now 'we' are going to hand our place back after all the blood, sweat and tears....we must not do it. Its a fooking disgrace to their memory.
Winston Churchill "Dreamed of a Europe without borders".(his own words). We must not become an open prison after what our people did for 'us'.

"I have a five-point definition of a cult," Stein tells me. "One: The leader is charismatic and authoritarian. Two: The structure of the group isolates people. The third thing is total ideology, like, 'You only need me and no other belief system has any relevance whatsoever." The fourth thing is the process of brainwashing." The fifth point, she says, is the result: "creating deployable followers who will do what you say regardless of their own self survival interests."
Well, at least he might be able to shred some light on this?
'In findings published on Saturday, the Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee said an anonymous organisation called Mainstream Network spent £257,000 on ads that reached up to 11 million people over a 10-month period.
'The "sophisticated" campaign included a direct call to action for users to email their MP asking them to "chuck Chequers," short-hand for May's controversial Brexit negotiating position agreed at her Chequers retreat in July.
'Mainstream Network has no known named organisation, UK address, or individual associated with it, the Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee said.'
O Tooles opinion pieces play to a szieable chunk of the population who relish the old enemy imploding while Varadkar leads Ireland to a new, brighter European future. Its nothing more than click bait for those who look down their noses at tabloids.
