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

Conservative officials fear the party could come sixth in the European elections, with their support plummeting to single digits.

[...]

Another Conservative source said internal data showed the party could do worse than the Brexit party, Labour, the Lib Dems, Change UK and even potentially the Greens, with support at less than 10%. That would translate to only a handful of seats, down from the current 22.

So they still expect to do better than the SNP and the DUP?

being fair to them, the Tories acknowledged a month ago that they have a problem with these elections. Half of the party don't think they should be contesting them at all and the other half are too old to do anything to help anyway.

only in respect of their losing.

I'd like to see the day when people realise that the tories are the disgusting smegma that erupts when the worst of humanity enjoy too much influence in the world, but sadly that day may never come.

But their analysis is correct on this occasion and, seeing as they're going to get a right good kicking for once, I'll take their excuses and let it lie
