In response to Andrew Cadman: Conservatism can win – just not with the Tories, JohnB wrote:
Unfortunately, even when the membership dwindles to near zero, the hedge fund money will keep this moribund institution going. We are in a terrible situation, a Left-wing Tory Party versus an openly Marxist-Leninist Labour Party. The danger ahead is great and I am seriously worried about what happens come the next general election, because either the Tories win and limp on a few more years as New Labour mk2 and the problem of the Tories doesn’t get addressed, or Labour wins and the idea of Britain could be lost for ever.
These are very trying times.
