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

But, more interestingly, it's where we go from here.

If, as I suspect, Boris is crowned king of the shitheap (it's up to you if you think I mean the Tories or the UK), then what next?

As Frank outlines, there really is nothing to be gained from the EU before november, who no longer have any interest in sustaining an obviously failed State on their dime a moment beyond the stroke of Halloween.

We are left with the same choice we've faced since last November. May's deal, no deal or (whisper it quietly) revoking 50.

I think boris will charge full bloodied at no-deal. At which point the Tory party will lose several MPs to the LibDems, forcing the Tories even further to the right to try to steal voters and support from Farage's band of brutals.

Some have said that this will bring a vote of no confidence, which will be lost bringing about a General Election. Who really knows at this point? But I think it unlikely because there are too many people looking to their jobs.

Many tories will expect to lose their seats at the next general election. Even Boris' own seat is looking like a marginal right now and I'm sure Labour will put up a good show against him.

Equally, the Cuck/Tinge Turkey party, already disintegrating as some flee to the LibDems know they will likely be wiped out out. So they won't be voting for Xmas anytime soon whatever the provocation including supporting a no deal they were formed to explicitly exclude.

And the DUP will follow the tories down whatever rathole is available, just becuause they're the lowest scum imaginable.

It's quite obvious at this point that Labour have returned tho their traditional soft left position, but that the LibDems now have an opportunity to make a pitch to replace the Tories as the natural home of One Nation conservatives, who have been increasingly uncomfortable in the increasingly neoliberal US-Republican wannabe Tory party.

The LibDems adoption 15 years ago of Orange Bookism, an overtly business friendly economics centred policy platform increasingly looks like a good position for them as politics seeks a new normal. this possibly gives them 1/3 of the Tory vote if they leverage it effectively. Conservative MPs will be especially attracted as the LDP are a far more effective electioneering force with a good ground operation.

It is also obvious that the Boris Tories and the Farage Brutals are in a death match for the same group of voters and there really isn't room in UK politics with FPTP for two parties on the right. tbh, post-brexit I'm not sure either has a future

Any chance the two cut a survival deal?  Provided, of course, they can overcome the trifling point that Frottage and Boor-Ass each has an ego with its own post code.
