Conventional wisdom is that the Party will suffer a serious setback north of the border. The Prime Minister must resource a more optimistic strategy.
And what of our voters who would be repelled by a pact with it? I can see the Lib/Lab slogan already: “Vote Blue, get Farage”.

The Prime Minister’s tour of the United Kingdom sees him square off against nationalists from Sinn Fein, the SNP… and Welsh Labour.
Also: Bebb to stand down as MP over Tory policy on Brexit; Bradley criticised for rushing ill-drafted Northern Irish legislation.
The first in a ConservativeHome series of what the new Prime Minister must do in the month before Parliament returns in September.
Also: A good week for devoscepticism as Hunt urges Johnson to rule out new powers for Holyrood; Lidington and Mundell issue warnings on the Union; and more.
