Sir Nicholas Soames on Leader of the House Jacob Rees Mogg : ‘an absolute fraud, a living example of what a moderately cut double-breasted suit and a decent tie can do with an ultra-posh voice and a bit of ginger stuck up his arse.’
The events of this week pretty much minimised any risk that the Tories would win, split opposition or not!
Well, yes, but it still would only have taken 18 more Green voters to plump for the Lib Dems as the best option for winning here and the Tories would have held on. I think the result shows that a Tory victory due to split opposition was eminently possible here.
NB In saying this I am by no means questioning whether either party should have stood, etc... both had a right to go for it.
"God knows I'm no Tory, and I never set eyes on a Whig yet without feeling the need of a bath..."
A very strong result, missing out last time as the only alternative to the Tories, and winning this time with the non-Tory vote split. Can't beat the Green Wave.
“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.” H. L. Mencken
