New book being written, "How to snatch defeat from jaws of victory", by Theresa May

So now.............Britex may not happen, another Election may be called, Possibility of second Britex Referendum more likely, Possibility of no party able to form a Government.............and a second book by Ms May, "Chaos out of Stability", still..............not all "doom and gloom"!............Scottish voters kicked "Elsie" into touch.

No Tim they have not been significantly reduced.
They have evaporated.

Salmon no more
Robertson no more
Our own county is back in Tory hands. Unbridled joy abounds.

Yes, a little good has come out of this ridiculous, self imposed election. Ms Sturgeon has been given a smacked bottom and Clegg and Salmond booted out of Parliament. Farron came very close to being just a footnote, too. Incidentally, I saw the other day that an anagram of Tim Farron is minor fart. Made me chuckle. Thank you Scotland and Ms Davidson for rescuing us from the arrogance and stupidity of Saint Theresa.

John, your quote could make another verse for the Proclaimers song Letter from America after:

Lochaber no more
Sutherland no more
Lewis no more
Skye no more
