So it’s another woeful performance for @Nigel_Farage. Brexit Party IS UKIP, yet even with Tories in chaos he only picked up an extra 5 seats. Cons have 4, not none. Remain beat Brexit overall.
Forget the hot takes. That’s a very bad result for Farage under these circumstances.
Also very important to say not all Brexit Party candidates, and indeed voters, are Farage-ists. @Theresa_May thwarted a reasonable Brexit at every opportunity and tried to sell us out to @Huawei. Many leave-minded Conservatives lent them a protest vote last week.
If the Conservative party is to avoid another Brexit stalemate by the next leader, it must follow @DanielJHannan's sound advice and go for EFTA plus. Nothing else stands a chance of passing the Remain-heavy Commons.
Or you can just lose your seats at the next GE. Up to you.
You can follow @LouiseMensch.
