Anecdata: My brother is a small-C conservative who is very worried about Corbyn precisely because he is expecting Corbyn to introduce rent controls. However, he also recently said, and I quote: “The conservatives cannot be trusted with the economy“. Given the current clown-car-on-fire-in-a-dumpster that is British politics right now, I would give 50% odds of the next election happening within one year and equally divided odds the largest party after that election being Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, or Brexit Party.

Not that this contradicts anything you’ve just said.
