Tory Split

One idea being talked about increasingly in Tory circles now that the Tories are an almost exclusively an electorally English party is that the party could be broken up into a federation.

Tartan Tories in particular think their only hope of winning elections is to fight as a Scottish party, English Tories already win their national elections and Wales, well, who cares its never votes Tory anyway. Crazy for a party that until recently called itself the Conservative and Unionist party?

Doesn’t some ex-Tory tycoon bankroll the New Party in Scotland? Desperate times call for desperate measures.
