Iains BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (2657* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 03 May 19


However the view held by knowledgeable pundits differs.
"With less than half of council election results counted the Tories have already hemorrhaged more than 250 seats as the party was abandoned by voters furious about the state of Brexit. The party had already been braced for a tough night amid frustration at Prime Minister Theresa May's failure to take Britain out of the EU on March 29 as planned. But election guru Sir John Curtice declared voters had declared 'a plague on both your houses' as both the Conservatives and Labour took big hits in their heartlands in the South East and North respectively. Furious Brexit supporters took to social media to show they had spoiled their ballot papers to show their demand to leave the EU immediately (right). But the Lib Dems, a hardcore Remain party, made significant gains with some predictions they could add up to 5000 council seats."
      It hardly needs pointing out that a tactical protest vote went to the Libdems because that was the only way to hurt the main two parties.
and hurt them they did! To try to explain it in any other way portrays a staggering degree of political naivety.
