Most or all Labour MPs will vote against the Government's Brexit proposals, which are themselves more than it wants or expects the EU to concede. 

The DUP will vote for it, but the SNP and Plaid Cymru will contrive reasons to vote against. As will the Lib Dems, even though no small part of its motivation is the Conservative fear of losing 10 or 20 seats, if not more, to the Lib Dems in the Remain heartlands of the South. Leaving those whom even the hunters after Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster rarely bother to try and track down, Eurosceptical Conservative MPs.

Of course, there will be a few. It is a reversion to the natural order that Ken Clarke should be the loyalist and Bill Cash should be the rebel. But if, as is highly likely, there are not enough of the latter to defeat the only thing worse than remaining in the EU, namely the transformation of this country into its colony and its satrapy, then, while it might be possible to blame the DUP, it will be quite impossible to blame even the present Parliamentary Labour Party, still less Jeremy Corbyn.

Rather, the blame will lie squarely with the Conservative Party, and the myth of legions of pro-Brexit MPs in that party will have been exploded once and for all, blowing to smithereens the fanciful notion that anyone of that mind might ever realistically aspire to become its Leader.

There is going to be another hung Parliament. We need our people to hold the balance of power in it. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning.
