Obviously the Tories would fight the campaign on railroading through Brexit but with all the evidence now pointing to the majority of Brits who can vote wanting to Remain after the deaths of so many geriatric Leave voters, the silent Remainers at the referendum and the million or so youngsters who have become eligible to vote over the last three years being 3 to 1 in favour of remaining in the EU, surely the most sensible option would be a Remain alliance with the multiple pro-Remain parties not putting up a candidate in areas where they can't win in order to avoid splitting the vote?
But no. Party politics is likely to win out and the Remain vote will be split. Effing politicians talk about "national interest" but the reality is they are looking after number one. And it's a big steaming, smelly number one.
