The risk of political disintegration

Posted on

UKIP is now a shambles.

Labiur is profoundly divided.

The LibDems are decimated.

The SNP are a force all to themselves, but umderstandably only in Scotland.

The Tories are already revealing deep rifts over Brexit.

Meanwhile the country needs leadership as it disintegrates as a consequence of Brexit, a process reflected in its political parties.

There is opportunity in this situation for real political leadership.

My fear is that this might still come from the far right, whether within or beyond the now dominant extremist wing of the Tory party.

This whole situation might still play out without disaster ensuing. But there is no guarantee of that.
