The worst thing about Britain's professional right isn't so much their monumental arrogance, so much as the fact they have so little to back it up. They act like they're the Albert Einsteins of politics when it's blindingly obvious they're not even Albert Steptoe.
Hence why we end up with fiascoes like this.
Yes, indeed: the type of people who approve of an unaccountable, elitist, micro-managing super state tend not to vote conservative anyway, and vice versa. You may think that's kind of obvious but clearly these guys didn't. Then again, these chumps managed to blow an election against Evil Santa (he's got a beard, likes the colour red and comes into your house with his sack to seize your prezzies for redistribution to the workers).
I'm thinking their claims to genius status might be looking a little tenuous...
To the point: professional conservatives keep giving the base patronising lectures about the importance of 'electability', even while continually screwing up actual elections. No wonder they're Remainers, what else could they be?
