Heseltine on Tory Prospects

As one might expect, Michael Heseltine's interview with Prospect is full of insights, but I think he over estimates the Labour Party.  At present the Labour Party seem to me to be falling into a trap.  Many people in the Labour Party seem to see the 2017 election as a victory when it was a defeat, refuse to accept the scale of the task to secure a majority (more than sixty seats assuming all the existing seats are held) and don't seem to accept the need to prove to the electorate that the Party will be reasonably competent in economic matters.  The current mood in the Labour Party strikes me as worryingly close to the kind of hubris which put Theresa May where she is today, in office but not in power.
