Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Tories are decimated receiving c. 15% of the vote, outvoted by both the Lib Dems and UKIP/Brexit parties combined.

tbh I'll believe that figure just as soon as I've seen the exit polls of an election.

People make all sorts of wild talk and then they get into the polling booth and an alchemy occurs where they vote the same way they always did.

Parris, the ex-tory MP & Times columnist, has frequently talked of voting for another party but finds that when he gets into the booth "my pen slips and I emerge into daylight to find that my cross has settled into its accustomed position next to the conservative candidate"
