This is an email to my Remainer MP in a GE marginal but Referendum Leave constituency, copy forwarded to a virtually extinct local Conservative Association.

I sincerely hope you have written a letter of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady.
That so few Conservative MPs appear to have done so, even at this late stage, reinforces my belief that many of your colleagues consider electoral suicide a price worth paying to ensure the success of the EU.
If the present leader of the party will not change her ridiculous “non deal” then the present leader of the party needs to change.
I do not feel that most Tory MPs appreciate the anger and disappointment amongst the general electorate regarding the current betrayal of the democratic process.
May does not seem to care that she is destroying the integrity of the Tory party. Why should anybody vote Tory again as we all know you no longer keep your promises!’
What I find astonishing is that the one unambiguously pro-EU party, the Lib Dems, did so badly in the recent election against two (allegedly) pro-Brexit parties, and is still doing worse than UKIP, and yet nearly all our MPs cling on to the belief that we should remain.
