Tides are slowly changing and the Tories and Labour are both feeling the effects of the division caused by Brexit. But will they be able to survive, will they rebrand and if so what direction will they take?

First of all that new Peterborough MP needs to be booted out, the Labour Party are divided on anti Semitic and that woman is blatantly racist to Jews.
About the Conservatives they need to be more promising with their Party Leader, personally I hope it’s a Remainer!

I agree but probably not for the same reasons. My main issue with them is they’re a single issue party with member that could never compromise on many things when in Government.

I’d say very. They both appear to be picking up the majority of the abandoned Labour vote and will be stringing to hold onto that once Labour rights itself. The one saving grace for them is the Conservatives have also likely split their vote with the BP and UKIP.

Basic problem for both Labour and the Conservatives is that both have tried to find some sort of compromise over Brexit, when it increasingly seems that neither Remain nor Leave voters want to compromise. And so both shift to more "purist" alternatives, the Brexit Party for Leavers, and the Lib Dems/Greens (and SNP in Scotland) for Remainers.

FPTP becomes a particularly stupid way of holding elections under this dynamic as well.

Judging by the leadership contenders the Tories are presenting themselves as the jogging party.
Maybe that's why it Andrea Leadsom and Esther McVey weren't selected

C4 was ok, BBC was poor and frustrating. Emily Maitlis kept jumping in while they were still trying to answer the guests question, as a result at various times 3 people was speaking at once, wasting everybody's time.

The format wasn't fair for any of them, they were trying to answer big questions which have exercised Parliament for 3 years in 30 seconds, which can't be done. They all did ok under the circumstances but it didn't change my opinion on any of them.

David Cameron tried to re-brand the Conservative party but it didn't do him much good.
