Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I'm fearing the worst. Though I do wonder what would happen if (a) all the Scottish Tories lost their seats, (b) a considerable number of Tory "rebels" stood as independents and won their seats, as some undoubtedly would, (c) there was significant LibDem resurgence, which I'd also expect. One thing I'm not particularly scared of is Farage and his bunch of eejits. They'll get votes but not seats, and they'll take votes off both big parties.

We'd need a progressive coalition that takes seriously the prospect of brexit not happening at all. Complicated for Labour, but these are times of crisis...

Or am I clutching at straws...

Or am I beginning to sound like Polly Toynbee...
