Has it really all boiled down to that terrifying prospect – and what a prospect of any future – if a Corbynite scourge is visited on the UK? Could Britain actually vote to cut its own throat?
And that, I am afraid to say, is why the Tories can hold up the UK electorate a nightmare scenario of a Corbyn government as ‘you can’t possibly vote for him’ – thus to wallow in a self-congratulatory consolation. It follows in their wrongheaded calculations that the Tories can prevaricate, delay and stick the EU referendum result OUT into the long grass. They hate the very idea of leaving the bosom of Brussels, and Westminster will wait it out and OUT will never happen.
