Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Conservative party members would rather break up the United Kingdom than stop Brexit
The latest YouGov poll of Conservative party members, who will soon be charged with choosing the UK's next prime minister, suggests they would opt to see both Scotland and Northern Ireland leave the UK, if it was the only way to ensure the UK leaves the EU.

Sixty three per cent say they would rather Scotland left the UK if it secured Brexit, with 61% willing to accept "significant damage" to the economy and 59% willing to see Northern Ireland leave the UK.

A further 54% would want Brexit to go ahead even if it meant the destruction of their own party.

The only perspective that would turn them against Brexit? Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn.
