The Conservative Party faces electoral annihilation. According to our bombshell poll, if there were a general election tomorrow, they would get just 19 per cent of the vote their worst result in history...They would lose 139 seats...
The incredible thing is that the Conservative leadership seems oblivious...
Take the 1993 election in Canada, when the centre-Right coalition of the Progressive Conservatives shattered...The PC tried to save things by changing leader, but the damage was done: on election night they collapsed from 156 seats to just two.
There is a moral lesson to such stories: dont let down the people who voted for you. Across many countries, the older, established parties of the centre-Right have bowed to the cultural pressure of the Left, abandoning their traditional positions on issues such as economics and crime out of fear of being labelled reactionary. But even if the elites dont like their own grassroots, they cant possibly build a victorious coalition without their enthusiastic support. Here in Britain, the Conservative leadership committed itself to Brexit,.. But then it cooked up a Brexit-in-name only, a patent betrayal of the referendum result that may well have done so much damage to the Tories reputation that they cannot recover fast enough to beat Mr Corbyn.
Our poll shows that even with a new leader, the Conservatives are still in serious trouble, which is why although a new leader is certainly needed a philosophical renaissance is required, too. .... Even if Tory MPs cannot comprehend the sheer disaster of a failed Brexit or a Labour government, let them mull on this: they stand a good chance of losing their own seats. That thought alone ought to spur them into action.

Yes, John Cornyn, I'm looking at you.
Read this mittens Rommney. I am SORRY I ever voted for you.
It is amazing that all these pubes knocking Trump are the Karl Rove House of Representatives GOP failure of today...
RINOS despise you, despise President Trump and despise the Constitution. They are quintessential losers and degenerate liars ,
I fell on a youtube video epoch times explaining that while Comey is claimed to be aRepublican, he was parading in college with the same reds that Obama coddled with,
Sounds like the Canadian version of Bush League Republicans.
British version, too.
Frustration leads to indifference, a brief political void and then the seizure and concentration of power by extremists. That is how the Left takes power. You are right to worry that it will happen in the United States. When it does the country will be so transformed that American children will salute the UN flag every morning.
The parallels between here and the UK are quite striking
...getting blackmailed for pics of them sleeping with a dead boy or a live goat...
Im not certain that type of blackmail would actually work on politicians anymore.
Yeah in this degenerate age a pic of one of them with a real woman would ruin them.
Turns out the voters really do want brexit.
The thing about many rinos is they would switch party’s and be fine with it.
Senior Tories press May to abandon Brexit deal talks with Labour
