Britain is to become a one party state the latest MORI poll indicates. The Conservatives are polling at 52% which in a First Past The Post system amounts to effective annihilation of all opposition. Electoral Calculus gives the Conservatives just under 500 (493) projected seats with the combined oppositions on just over 100 (130).
In another few months these figures, if they follow trend, will give the Conservatives 600 seats, and the other parties zero – or maybe 30 seats in total.
David Cameron will be the first Prime Minister in history to face no opposition of any kind, except of course his ‘colleagues’ in the EU, Sarkozy and Merkel, who don’t like the sound of Cameron’s suggestions for root and branch EU reform.
Another venue where this voting pattern will make waves will be in the EU Parliament where elections are to be held in less than one year in June 2009. Conservative MEPs will be overwhelmingly be sent to Brussels, while Labour and Lib Dem will no longer exist other than as token historical emblems. The only question is will the Conservative MEPs be old style Francis Maude hand-picked agents of European supremacy, or British democrats representing the eurosceptic views of British voters, 85% of whom still want a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, and who would almost universally boot it half way across the Atlantic ocean to sink into oblivion.
It’s hard to bother blogging now the dam of political opposition to Europe has so convincingly broken. What is there to tell people, any more? That the EU is a disaster, harmful to the interests of Europeans? Most of them already know that now. In Britain all the people do. Cameron will be the most powerful Prime Minister in British political history. He will also most likely be the key agent of change that unlocks the path of European bureaucratic centralisation, giving the continent the rebirth it so badly needs.
So what is there to write about? Not more about the endless Labour meltdown surely – now 28% behind.
