Not surprising at all I think. And I believe very plausible and possible I'd the "smaller" parties get it right. Both the Tories and Labour are past their sell by date for a growing part of the population

Will wreck? I'd say no deal will only finish it off. That image is already largely wrecked. I suspect a lot of business leaders haven't forgotten now PM's Boris Johnson's "F*ck Business". Then the millions and millions of pounds the already wasted once and probably wasted again soon on no deal preparation. The chaotic Brexit negotiation by the Tory government, which again has brought business huge amounts of uncertainty and because businesses don't invest much in uncertain times has meant UK productivity has further fallen behind many other nations. The likely additional administrative costs any type of Brexit will bring to UK businesses. The increased difficulty and cost in attracting and hiring international top talent. The diminished (or better, lost) influence the UK will have on EU standards, but will still have to follow when they want to export to the EU. The diminished influence the UK will have on the world stage as it won't have the heft of the EU behind it any more. The lack of investment into education and infrastructure because of largely unnecessary austerity, also leading to the UK falling further behind other nations.

Dear Daily Mail and The Times advertisers as well as disappointed Tory donors, here's a suggestion for you: Pull your ads from the Daily Mail and The Times and stop your Tory donation. Send the money you saved to the RNLI instead and help them to save lives. Help them to save real people. Mostly in the UK and Ireland, as only a tiny fraction (£2 out of a £100, or £0.20 out of £10!!!!) goes elsewhere.

Did David Cameron destroy the Tory party in his misguided attempt to rescue it?

It is a widely shared assumption that David Cameron promised and then delivered the EU referendum in an attempt to unite the Tory party. The idea seems to have been to "answer the question once and for all" and then to unite the party behind it. Which has failed spectacularly.

Now Boris Johnson seems to believe the only way to save the Tories and make them electable is to turn them in effect into the Brexit Party / UKIP / whatever vehicle Farage comes up with next. But to do that he has to overtake them on the right. Not to mention that he has expelled 21 members of the more moderate wing of his party.

This will turn off many more moderate voters, not to mention the remain leaning (former?) Tory voters, many won't want the no deal Johnson (or is it actually Cummings?) seems to want. Meaning in order to attract some (he will never get them all) right wing voters he will lose a lot of moderate voters, many probably to the LibDems.

Is this how the Tories as a mainstream party will end?

Alarm is Mounting About Dominic Cummings and his Willingness to Defy Parliament


The cross-party group of MPs is looking at legislative options with mounting urgency because of the hardline tactics of #Cummings who one Conservative insider described as running a “reign of terror” in No 10 aimed at achieving Brexit on 31 October at any cost.

A #Tory special adviser told the Guardian that Cummings, an unelected part of Boris Johnson's team was “absolutely running the show” and was even more ruthless and difficult to work with [..]

A view on Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson's medium term self destruction of the Tories. It might not happen immediately (if he's lucky), but won't take too long:

Oh dear. We're doomed. Although, if he wins I can claim I once went paintballing with the (future) prime minister. Claim to fame, whoohoo (many many moons ago we worked at the same company and for some teambuilding event went paintballing)

House of Commons speaker John Bercow refuses third vote on Brexit Deal


(I guess that he is sick of all the dis-orda in the House, which is the reason why he had to cut it all out. Frankly, I am thankful for this decision - they were in no way ready to ever find a meaningful and final decision if they weren't told to stop. The constructive face in this mess had long ended, it was a dying carcass that didn't want to accept its demise.)
Downing Street was blindsided by the announcement and unable to give a response at its regular afternoon briefing for journalists. “The speaker did not forewarn us of the content of his statement or the fact that he was making one,” May’s spokeswoman said.

“The Leader of the House is playing with her electronic device, and so is the deputy chief whip. I didn’t include him in the category of very senior people in the House but that’s a debatable proposition I readily grant.”
