Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I wouldn't be so sure: sitting on the terraces of Somerset pubs, inventing splendid but utterly unworkable policies, as far away from actually having to implement them as it's possible to get, sounds right up their street!
No LibDem MPs in Somerset. Try Scotland
Vince Cable said this morning that they've been in talks with the LibDems for 6mths.

Sadly given the UK electoral system the whole thing is doomed.
I also fear it's career suicide, but anything can happen at this point. That said, I have the utmost admiration for Luciana Berger. That gal's got huge balls.

Having said that, I think we may be moving towards an era of more coalition governments in the UK, particularly when you think there's only been 2yrs of a majority government in the last 9.

I'm just waiting for Owen Smith now... My measure for how 'broken' politics really is, would be if the likes of Tobias Ellwood and Tom Watson leave their parties.
