Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If the logic is that the Brexit party running candidates in the south of England would increase the chances of a Remainer government being elected, why does that same logic not apply in the North of England? Farage has just destroyed the raison d'etre for his own party everywhere.

We may not like Boris and all he stands for, but he has just won round one - defeating the Brexit party as a credible competitor. The Tory party now IS THE Brexit party and there is no point in having another - if you are a Leaver.

Meanwhile the Remain vote is hopelessly split... Interestingly, the last Remain-Leave poll still showed at 10% Remain majority. Will they vote tactically Labour or Lib Dem depending on who has the better chance? What proportion of the UK electorate are sophisticated enough to vote tactically and know who HAS the better chance in their constituency?

And finally, will the Lib Dems and Labour be able to work together even if they secure the larger number of seats?

Me thinks we could be grasping at straws here...
