Tory observers of Tory goings-on are getting seriously worried about the ‘bad’ news that the likelihood of a new General Election has increased significantly.
George Trefgarne is a former politics editor at the Telegraph and has written for Conservative Home. Yesterday he published a series of tweets lamenting what he considers the serious, depressing and increasing prospect:
Trefgarne related that business leaders – presumably reading the signs among the high-ups of the party – have been contacting him on a virtually daily basis to ask whether there will be a general election:
The reason? As ever with the Tory party, it’s infighting about their own peculiar, internal obsessions rather than admission of what a disaster Tory government is for the rest of us or qualms about having to do a deal with a far-right party to achieve it, but he considers it solid – and that the press is missing the signs:
Added into the mix is a good dose of arrogance at the top of the Tory party – and belief in their own misleading propaganda:
Of course, for the rest of us the prospect of a new general election is good news, not depressing. But it seems the Tories still live in a bubble of their own making.
Bring. It. On.
