I’m not sure I like him particularly but I suspect it may be Matthew Hancock as the least objectionable candidate to all Tory tribes.
As to what he does, well fk knows. It’s going to be a brave new world isn’t it…?
What I would like is a proper 10, 15, 20 year plan as a consensus for running the U.K.
Undoing previous policies, finding your feet, rallying the troops takes two years. Two years of policy can follow but then a year of electioneering means little progress ever seems to be made in a term these days.
Problem is the HoC is full of skimmed milk people, all no cream, most weighed down with ideology & I don’t any natural leaders floating to the top anywhere.
Whatever, we are in uncharted waters. My only hope is we don’t get Corbyn, but fear we will, I have a real concern for this country with the momentum trotsky party at the helm. Add the challenges of recovering from brexit & … it doesn’t bear thinking about.
Well. If Corbyn gets his way, we’ll be out of the EU but as close to being in it, without actually being in it. Thus the economic hit from leaving will be minimised. Surely you must give Corbyn credit for that.
That is a myth. Labours half out proposal will mean all that the country voted for with brexit is not achieved, no UK control of immigration, still paying EU funds, abiding by EU laws & standards, all this with no input into EU policy making. The country will still be divided, probably more so & more polarised than now & we will continue to be the troublesome child of Europe. As the UK is right now, so seriously divided by the referendum, the EU should be aiming for a long arm distance with the UK but bend a little to facilitate a UK with a “deal” that is workable for all - incl the N.Ireland border; the EU needs to wake up to that.
I voted remain BTW
After the next General Election i’d like to see most of the Tory and Labour MPs lose their seats, and see a clear overall majority for the new TIGer Party, and with Heidi Allen elected as new Prime Minister.
They will govern the UK with sensible centrist political policies, allow a confirmatory public vote, and with a strong Remain win will continue EU membership with close and friendly ties. [We may all sigh a relief and continue enjoying our EU citizen membership rights].
There will be stability of the UK economy, and the creation of an environmentally friendly nation with enthuses to providing a higher quality of life for all [as opposed to the getting rich quick for the few].
