It’s only about a month until the UK general election and it looks like the pro Brexit Tories will score a landslide. The unelected European Commission and especially its Presdient Jean Claude Juncker has set ruthless demands in the misplaced belief that the Brits will bow to intimidation. Far from it.
“But while the Conservative vote went up by 17.4 points to 53%, Labour saw only a 0.7 point increase to 19.3% – nearly all the Ukip vote went straight to the Tories. This rather confirms Boris Johnson’s claim that Ukip were “a lost tribe of Tories” rather than disaffected Labour voters who might return to the party. The Lincolnshire results will be a blow to Paul Nuttall’s hopes in Boston.”
