There seems to be no mood among Conservative MPs for a General Election.
But Theresa May has survived losing her overall majority at a General Election that she had never needed to call.
She has gone on to survive losing her Withdrawal Agreement by the largest anti-Government majority in the history of the House of Commons, and then losing it again, not once, but twice.
After that, a mere failure to pass a motion pursuant to the Fixed Term Parliaments Act would be nothing to her.
Another hung Parliament is coming, however, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it.
It has become a local commonplace that I am on 30-30-30 with Labour and the Conservatives here at North West Durham, so that any one of us could be the First Past the Post.
I will stand for this seat, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Very many thanks.
