I am not a Conservative and I never thought I would say this but I miss what the Conservative party used to be. I miss its patriotism & pragmatism corroded by Brexit. 👇

How Brexit is causing the strange death of British conservatism | Jonathan Freedland theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
I have always voted for progressive left of centre parties rather than the Tories but there was something reassuring that if the other side won at least conservatives who would put the country first even if I disagreed with domestic policies but now they represent a danger to UK.
The obvious damage that Brexit will do and is doing now to our economy will weaken us in every respect including our defence capability and international standing in the world. I cannot understand why Conservative MPs & party members would harm our country in this recklessness.

What is apparent is that the Conservative party no longer represents the middleground of pragmatic politics they want to claimed to represent. They have lost their way. An alien disruptive force has been incubated within the Tory party and will destroy them from within. Brexit.
