For Better, For Worse

So who is the Foreign Secretary, then? Does anyone even care anymore?

"You Leave voters have given us the worst constitutional crisis since the War!" I know. Isn't it marvellous? Labour MPs calling for a National Government, tweeting their encouragement to Theresa May, and so on, do of course need to be expelled from their party. As do Conservatives who are publicly calling her a traitor, demanding that she resign, and what have you. Let the realignment begin.

Not that it will in that way, of course. And remember that the "centrist" bloc that is indeed taking shape, even though not as a new party, will represent, at least initially, the only thing worse than staying in the EU. To be a rule-taker but not a rule-maker is to be a colony. To pay but have no say is to be a satrapy.

The Single Market and the Customs Union, the EEA, the "Norway Option", the "Switzerland Option", call it what you will. In a second referendum, between that and plain old Remain, then, since one of them would be bound to win, even plain old Remain would be preferable. The key is to prevent that situation from arising in the first place.

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.
