Andrea Gee: I’m standing in this Euro-election in Scotland to help deliver Brexit – and defy Sturgeon
The solution to the challenges we face doesn’t lie in burying our heads in the sand or in jumping ship to another party.
Henry Newman: The Tory poll collapse is nothing to do with May’s Withdrawal Agreement. MPs should vote for it – and deliver Brexit
A basic problem remains unaltered – that there is no Commons majority for a No Deal Brexit. This point has been well made by Ann Widdecombe.
A lethal combination of strategic incoherence and operational incompetence has seen the Remain wave pass the would-be mould-breakers by.
Nicky Morgan: If Tory MPs want May not to rely on Labour, then they know what they must do. Pass her deal as it stands.
We have just 17 days from tomorrow now to do what voters told us to do on the doorsteps last Thursday – namely, ‘get Brexit sorted’.

Will they now seek to appease turbulent voters by rushing her-deal-plus-the-Customs-Union through the Commons?

It’s the classic small party dilemma – do you accept recruits and defectors, even when they come with baggage?
We seem to be heading back towards where British politics was between 2005 and 2015: in other words, towards more of a three or four or perhaps more party system.
Plus: I’m still backing Brexit. The Independent Group’s Tory targets. And: it’s a disgrace that public money is being spent on the European elections.
David Shiels: European Parliamentary elections would pose problems for the main parties. But especially for the Conservatives.
New polling for Open Europe shows that the Tories have special reason to be wary of this consequence of a long extension.
