Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The BBC News channel does occasional "vox pop" pieces where they send a reporter to far flung places (outside the M25 in London) to find out what the local populace is thinking. I doubt their selection of which voices to broadcast is random. but some are amusing or instructive anyway.

Interviewing a conservative looking Brexit supporting lady she pronounced herself as "losing the will to live" at all the procrastination and delay and feeling embarrassed that her government was making them "look foolish" around the world.

To the casual eye she reeked of self-entitlement and innate superiority, but I suspect she spoke for many now that a second season of the Brexit series seems all but guaranteed. Even if she is a hardened Tory party supporter I suspect she will vote UKIP or Brexit party if she bothers to vote at all.

But who will vote Tory party other than a few party loyalists, establishment types and sympathisers for Theresa May's predicament? To most conservatives she is damaged goods, yesterday's woman, and the cause of their embarrassment.

Added to the fact that most Tories think the EP elections shouldn't be happening anyway, oppose a second referendum, and just want the the government to "get on with it (Brexit)", it is hard to imagine the Tory vote doing anything other than implode.

My 15% prediction could even be generous...
