Re: OT/ Brexit

The Conservative this time round ran a good campaign, last time TM ran a rubbish one and nearly lost.

I can tell you honestly, as a former Conservative and campaigner, that the Conservative ground game is always inferior to Labour, except in a few areas. Certainly not in Bishop Auckland, Blyth Valley, Bolsover, West Brom East etc.

The social media campaign was just to trivial. Saying vote Labour to keep the Torries out is really defeatist, but equally so is a fantasy agenda.

The law of social media is that losing parties blame it time and time again, even though following Social media would suggest the opposite outcome.

Next time round the election will be based on home politics rather than a hybrid referendum/election so we can expect a very different discussion.

Mark my words. Patriotism was as, if not more, important than Brexit in this election. I guarantee Labour will 'learn' all the wrong lessons.

Voters don't want extremes of Liberalism; social conservatism is popular, very popular.
