What am I missing (redux)?

Right now there is a strong belief among many in the Tory party the their new leader should be a Remainer, like most of their MPs, but not a gung-ho one - to avoid alienating the people in their party who voted Leave. The obvious candidate is Teresa May, whom I predicted on the 24th (and still predict) will be the next Tory leader, at least if its pragmatic wing wins out.

Labour are in a similar position: most of their MPs are strongly Remain, but many of their supporters voted Leave. Happily, they already have a leader who is, like May, a slightly reluctant Remainer. Being the Labour party, however, they see this as a reason to sack him.
