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

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.
