Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just checking. But is it not more than a bit Quixotic to risk all for a triumphant return of Country Tories and their values of which fox hunting is emblematic? But if the USA can elect Trump...

Tories were certain to win.
They thought they would wipe Labour out for a generation. So they included things in the manifesto to play to their base, thinking that it would be ignored and people would still vote for them. Plus that way they would have received some nice funding from landed gentry.

But they did not return a majority. And their incompetence is now on display.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
