One of the biggest losers in this whole sorry prices is the Conservative Party itself. No matter they're differing views, I would be astonished if the party chair, or the chairs of the 1922 Committee, didn't get them together before hand and remind them that they were representing the party first and foremost, given that this was a live broadcast to the whole nation. This could have been the best free advertising that the Conservative Party could get, but if they did, then the instructions clearly didn't sink in. Instead they gave a performance that was a microcosm of so many things that have disillusioned so many people. Bickering, talking over each other, half-hearted soundbites based on untruths. There really doesn't appear to be any uniting of this party in the future - papering over the European cracks is the very best that they could hope for and that only works with a huge parliamentary democracy. Corbyn's reformed the key parts of the Labor Party to his agenda, but it hasn't yet been fully tested at parliament because they're a minority and don't really have an agenda other than to let the government continue to fail. The Conservative Party needs to do the same - either lance or split from the hard line Euro-sceptics of the ERG and move forward as a more moderate party - if they're to be capable of harnessing more reasoned consensus. I thought that they were all poor last night. Stewart still comes across as the most rational candidate to me, but even if he were to win I could never vote for the party knowing that it contains the bigoted toxicity of others who were present last night, and many more in office.
