For the many million Remainers still shaking their heads at the circus of solipsism offered by the Left and the cod-patriotic mendacity offered by the Right, there is now one big question: who to vote for on 8th June?
The Tory party is in the grip of some of the most fatuous politicians ever to consider themselves guardians of a national future. The Labour Party has moved in ten years from dominant to powerful to plausible to embarrassing to delusional to its current status—best characterised as some kind of live performance-art work that openly celebrates self-harm. In England and Wales, that leaves the Liberal Democrats as a last, threadbare refuge.
A quick digression. Do not let anyone tell you anything other than that the Liberal Democrats performed the greatest possible national service in the Coalition Government of 2010-2015; the list of punitive and kamikaze Tory policies they blocked or moderated is too long to relate here. No further evidence is needed, surely, of the Lib Dem influence for the national good than the ongoing eisteddfod of cluelessness and rupture that has overtaken our country since the Tories were left in charge without them.
