Tory Party Blues- so soon after victory

My latest column on UK politics from Sputnik International.

They say in sport that a team is often at its most vulnerable after an important victory. We've seen lots of examples of this, particularly in football.
On 9th September 1989, Millwall cemented their position at the top of Division One in English football by thrashing Coventry 4-1. The next week though they lost 5-1 and in fact, won only two more games all season, finishing bottom of the entire league.
In September 2014, newly promoted Leicester City pulled off a stunning 5-3 win against Man Utd, but lost their next match to Crystal Palace and didn't win again for another three months. Germany won the 2014 World Cup, beating Argentina 1-0 in the final, but then lost their very next game 4-2, also to Argentina. The phenomenon occurs in politics too.....
