The power that our two-party state puts in the hands of the roughly 650,000-strong membership of those parties is vast… This is not serving Britain well. This isn’t about the 52% or the 48%. It’s about the 1.4%: that 650,000 who, by energy rather than wisdom, and with the intensity rather than the popularity of their views, foist them on the moderate majority. Theresa May is a creature of this corrupted system and, whether Tory or Labour, her successor will be too.
