Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Unfortunately, the Tory party has always been far too ready to be influenced by the GOP and its more sinister paymasters. Scratch any UK conservative thinktank and it will be awash with US seed money and influence.

Even the spokespeople on the BBC for the "Institute of Economic Affairs" and other influential thinktanks are yanks. It's like they don't allow Brits on to speak for the right wing anymore unless they're MPs.

So, sub-Trumpian bollocks from Boris and now Hunt are the only things that resonate with the dingbat membership. Logic, knowledge and history are suspect and subject ot revision if deemed inconvenient. Michael Gove said he was not interested in hearing from experts on various subjects, cos facts. Seems like this was just an admission of actual custom and practice within the Tory party.
