    Life long Tory seeking new home

    OK opening myself up to all sorts of abuse and ridiculisation here, but anyway. Have always been centre right Cameronite type of Tory, even before I became a British citizen, I voted for similar parties abroad.
    My MP (Tory) will vote for the Brexit bill and we're in a constituency with a huge majority for remain. Can't identify myself with the Brexit bullies that rule the conservatives at the moment.
    So I'm wondering what I should vote next. Leaning towards lib dems, but the UK lib dems are a bit too left, whereas in Europe most of the libdem parties are centre right, there is not a real party filling the gap that has now appeared.

      Lib Dems - Being irrelevant suits you.

      Or

      Labour - They are mad & Sad so again playing to your strengths.

        Success

        Form your own political party. What's the worst that could happen?

          The vote wasn't on a constituency basis so how the area voted is irrelevant.

          And you come across as a Blairite, not a conservative. Vote Lib Dem.

            You chose to become a British citizen? Doh!

            As someone who was broadly a Cameron supporter too my feeling is that voting is for chumps, and I want no further part in it. That's the only protest you can make.
            Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

              I will vote for Lib dems next time, turns out they are most sensible of the lot, if only they were a bit less taxing and more pro making money, they'd have real chance to replace Liebor as HM Opposition

                It is relevant if the majority of the MPs constituency would want him to vote to remain. Or do you think MPs should routinely ignore the will of their constituents?

                  A centre right Cameronite

                  What a fanny. When you say that, do you mean you support what Cameron said he'd do or what he did ??

                    Yeah it's just that their policies generally collapse under the lightest scrutiny.
