There'll be plenty of bluebirds over the white cliffs of dover and so on and so forth I should imagine.
The Foreign Secretary will put his foot in it repeatedly which will allow Frau May to cashier him to the backbenches and a berth at the Telegraph or Spectator finally ... Norman Tebbitt will be found in his pyjamas in Brick Lane muttering about being in Berlin by Christmas.
The Labour Party will self-importantly implode as it does with monotonous regularity. The Lib Dems will pick up Labour seats and the odd Tory seat on a pro-Europe ticket despite them being in no way, shape or form coherent in terms of being a partner even as a minority in government.
Actually it looks like a sort of Dad's Army election with Theresa as Mainwaring, Sergeant Wilson being played dreamily by the Lib Dems and the Labour Party looking more and more like Private Godfrey in search of an urgent bush and hoping that the war will wait while he has a tinkle.
And the more they insist on running in FST, the more their own base will desert them...
I don't know about that. Eastwood seems to have got off to a good start. They also didn't mess about with the whip in BCC last week - a good thing imo, as there are too many SDLP people who are looking out for their own dungheaps. What they need to do, and I think they recognise this, is forget about their "base" and try to attract younger voters. They'll do this by offering a coherent nationalist alternative to SF.
All that said, FST will depend entirely on who will run for SF, whether there is a unionist pact this time around (Nesbitt dismissed this having had his fingers burnt first time, and Swann seems to have set his stall against it) and good old fashioned turnout.
