Re-issuing, but as single thread, 11 tweets from over last 3 days, each one linking to different commentator, but all justifiably criticising May's Tories for their abject failure to come up with any ideas to counter hard-Left Corbynite-Labour.

Judge for yourselves. . .

Yet another VG diagnosis of May's Vichy-'Conservatives' combined political ineptitude & ideological vacuum, by Janet Daley.
Corbyn's apparent supporters are inveterate consumers, not marxists, but Miliband-Lite May Tories have totally failed to notice it.
Another who totally understands the political cul-de-sac in which the Vichy-'Conservative' Party has voluntarily trapped itself.
Dominic Lawson in @thesundaytimes on the impossibility of their credibly opposing Corbyn policies which are also their own.
Now even her own Cabinet colleague & similarly-#EUphile ideological soulmate Lidington saying it. "May must re-make the case for conservatism">>
She can't. She's incapable of it. If Tories don't oust her & start doing it themselves, it's Corbyn in No 10.
Conservatives must leave Birmingham #CPC18 with a clearer idea of what conservatism actually means than they currently display, and also of how to persuade other people of it., via @CapX
The Corbynistas' tactical nous is to combine hard-Left rhetoric with centre-Left policies.
Especially those similar to which Tories have themselves proposed.
Which makes it hard for them to oppose them now.
Perceptive analysis by @J_Bloodworth at @unherd
Dossier: May's #ChequersPlan must be replaced & efforts to find alternative means of achieving frictionless borders re-doubled.
Prof Robert Tombs at @briefing4brexit:
"With the benefit of hindsight, it is obvious that placing a 'remainer' at the head of a government that had to implement a 'leave' agenda could never work"
Just one of several killer-quotes from VG Dr Jonathan Swift article at @BrugesGroup.
Spot on by @the_tpa's @LowTaxChloe at @ConHome.
Last Tory Conference pre-#Brexit is time for focusing on great opportunities it presents, not introducing Corbyn-Lite policies in increasingly desperate bid to try & counter him. #CPC18
@ConHome And another well-aimed (and well-deserved) brickbat at May by Charles Moore.
Second in only 2 or 3 days.
The Tory Party needs wind in its sails, but Theresa May refuses even to leave port.
Yet another wake-up call for May's Squishy-Tories which they'll probably ignore.
To their and our detriment.
@LiamHalligan: McDonnell may be a Mad Marxist, but he's asking the correct questions, & the 'Conservatives' need a response.
And yet another critique of Tories' hesitant (to the extent it's discernible at all from Hammond's soporifically contradictory #CPC18 speech), approach to econ/fiscal policy.
When @CitySamuel says they're missing the big picture b/c of Brexit, she's right

Stupendous column by @AllisterHeath, rightly laying vast majority of blame for Corbynomics being so ostensibly popular with Middle England on faux-'Conservative' Party that's largely stopped countering it & in effect capitulated to it.
Today's must-be-read
". . a proper campaign by a proper Tory party would change minds by marshalling fresh arguments that voters actually relate to."

Quite, but the ruling hierarchy of today's soggy centre-left, metro-'liberal' Vichy-'Conservative' Party wouldn't even know where or how to start.
". . Tories never argued properly against any of this, failed to propose alternative market-based mechanisms to reduce prices for consumers, and instead decided to embrace many of these views themselves"

Succinct, dead-accurate diagnosis of why Tories will usher in a Corbyn govt

In view of the opprobrium heaped on Boris for some disobliging personal opinions on the aesthetics of the burka & niqab, while NB adamant that it should *not* be banned, a mini-thread on what some of his most prominent detractors have had to say on the subject
Here, first, is Polly Toynbee on it, as far back as 28 Sep 2001:
‘an instrument of persecution, a public tarring & feathering of female sexuality’.
Umm, doesn’t Boris’ comment seem a trifle mild in comparison to that?
Not to be outdone, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown on the burqa, 13 July 2009:
‘neither Islamic nor socially acceptable’
Erm, wasn’t Yasmin sort of arguing the reverse of that against Claire Fox just two nights ago?
