Conservative Home also suggesting canvassing of local party HQs to determine how bad it is on the doorstep - which is not a good sign for TM.
The electorate is both polarised and emotionally bound when it comes to Brexit. With the split also apparent in Labour - though not as well publicised due to them being in Opposition - this topic has the potential to re-draw the political map.
Don't disagree with any of this. I just wonder how far the political map can be reshaped given the limitations of FPTP. Even if UKIP and the Lib Dems suddenly started polling 30% of the vote each, they'd still only pick up a handful of seats. British politics will always be heavily weighted in favour of the Conservatives and Labour while the electoral system remains as it is, even after a political earthquake like Brexit.
