    Default As a lifelong Tory I'm disgusted with the Tory party

    Looking after the Tory party first and not the national interest is just plain wrong.
    What this election has shown is that a substantial portion of this country does not agree with Teresa's May's rhetoric and approach.
    The first thing the Tories should do is form a cross-party negotiating team for Brexit.
    This is too important an issue for ideas to come from just one party - it's akin to a national emergency.
    And frankly the extremists should be ignored.
    By pandering to the right-wing extremists, May released the spectre of the opposite, left-wing extremists.
    That's how it always plays out in history. Extremism breeds extremism.
    Abandon the centre at your peril.
    The country voted for Brexit, it didn't vote for chaos and poverty.
    Hard Brexit now!

    I think one German politician over the weekend said that the UK is heading to be the first, first world country to end up as a failed state.

    I agree, but that applies to left wing extremists and Remainers too (I mean, extremist Remainers ).

    Could not agree more. You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to sasguru again.

    I wonder if we shall soon hear a "crisis. What crisis?" speech like Jim Callaghan.

    To get Thatcher we had to go through Heath. Heath=Cameron. However May is more like Callaghan than Thatcher.

    Is May the worst Labour prime minister ever?

    I hope that the interests of the country come first. Realistically no chance.

    Was that not the UK in the 1970s?

    It seems we are heading back there. Its been downhill so Major took over.

    Britain is ahead in the historical cycle - the first country to industrialise, it was also the first country to post-industrialise (i.e. to move on to a predominantly services-based economy, with a relatively tiny manufacturing sector), the current banana-republic chaos just prefigures the broad decline of the West in relation to a resurgent Asia.
    Hard Brexit now!

    God forbid that we go down the extremist remain approach, and end up like Germany.

    Perhaps a national unity government is needed.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    What is a joke is that you vote on a manifesto, they win it, and then she decided to abandon core parts of it.

    So repealling the Dementia Tax, means testing and Fox Hunting is all out.

    I for one was looking forward to chasing Neil Fox around a field with a bunch of baying dogs.
    What happens in General, stays in General.
    You know what they say about assumptions!
