I think the next 5 years have completely changed.
The Tories don’t have the votes any more. They’ve got a weak agreement to prop them up but that’s it.
Far more importantly, they’ve got a Labour party who were divided over the direction of the party and saw their message jump from 30% to 40% of the voters. No more can party membership be called some unrepresentative tiny slice of a few hundred thousand activists. The party have a purpose, they have a manifesto to continue to iterate forward and unite behind. They have a weak government who now have to try and string along a tiny group of extremists and MPs who have to deal with up to 12 years of weak rule without splitting and not even with the expectation that they’ll have a strong majority after the next GE.
And the billionaire press barons have been shown their power is over. They no longer are kingmakers who get their private meetings with those in power and dictate policy while acting as state media to disseminate propaganda. They’re as dead as the trees that go into their product.
We are in a completely different game. The Tory dismissive attitude that power was their right is either going to get dropped extremely quickly or the Tories are going to continue to find things crashing down around them.
Imagine how many Labour votes there could be if the PLP had united around the platform and voters knew their vote would definitely count because swings really were on the cards. Whenever this government collapses, the next GE could easily be a Labour landslide. (Not to get all privileged/accelerationist on this but…) The Tories have nothing left in the engine and things with Brexit only get worse from here if they continue on their current path and expose their economic incompetence. The infrastructure they’ve neglected will continue to deteriorate.
