Reader’s Comment: Leave and Remain are as bad as each other


In response to  Cerberus: This Tory playground punch-up was always going to turn nasty. Too much is at stake, Stuart Beaker wrote:

The saddest thing is the hijacking of what is, as you say, an existential decision, by cultured, patrician yahoos sticking the knife into each other over who gets to rule the Conservative party. It is a betrayal of the nation by both sides – a politicking, calculating Vote Leave side every bit as much as the principle-free Remainers, frankly contemptuous of the electorate, a self-parodying bunch of ‘toffees’.

And all the while, the opposition parties are gloating and guffawing into their sleeves, hardly able to believe their scraggy throats are being saved by the very party they are taking free pot-shots at without any come-back whatsoever.

The level of disgust for politicians among just about everyone I know has reached epic proportions on the back of this farce. If disillusion and anger could power those bonkers windmills, we’d have enough energy for the foreseeable future – incandescence in action, indeed.

The first party that decides to risk the sneers and smears of being called ‘populist’, and reforms itself to serve the evident will of the common British people, will surely romp it.
