Amy Chua says they are blind to the decisive importance of tribal politics – an obliviousness which extends to America itself, and prepared the way for Trump.
Meanwhile, 51 per cent of respondents believe that Theresa May should resign as Party leader before the next election.
The Conservatives ought to learn from him. Plus: Vote, vote, vote for Widdecombe. Fire and Fury is damp and limp. My teeth, oh, my teeth. And: My quest to enter Phillip Lee’s brain.
