Montgomery Brewster’s ‘None of the Above’ would walk this election.
It’s actually quite liberating to follow politics without a team to shout for. I remain a Conservative by inclination. I like free markets, economic liberalism and so forth even if the Conservative manifesto doesn’t seem to all that much, Tories, if not their leadership, are mainly for these things. I am also a social liberal, I remain committed to an open and tolerant society. However the Liberal Democrats risk becoming the Church of England does Politics, being stuffed with the kind of dry, shabby inadequate who can’t quite get over his (self) loathing of homosexuality. I dislike May. I think she’s a narrow-minded provincial bigot who’s been promoted way, way above her level of competence. She is however the best of the two candidates for Prime Minister.
You lost me after describing Blair & Cameron decent & capable
Tories will pick up 6-8 seats in Scotland, Ruth Davidson has done a very good job at picking away at the blatantly shitty record of SNP governance. Therea May ain't no Cameron that's for sure but the only sensible choice. Lib Dems taking Vauxhall – does that mean that dickhead Cable will be back?
Well Very British Dude you got what you wanted. I hope Mrs. May resigns as Prime Minister and let someone capable and inspiring take over the job. I doubt that will happen though as she seems to want to carry on as Prime Minister.
I did find this election to be a bore though and hope we don't have to do it again in the next two years.
Whadaya know! You were right!
October you say. Oh good, another chance to short Sterling!
"My local headbanging Leadsomite hard-brexiter"
Unless you've moved (to a different parliamentary constituency) recently, I seem to recall you referring to him in somewhat different terms, not that long ago…
What a sensible post. I could not agree more, May is a very second best option, but Corbin is very much a third rate option. Oh the joy.
SJ: I have agreed with him on nearly everything else, but he was one of the "bastards" and supported Leadsom, and has gone on the record supporting the hardest of hard brexits. This is absolutely a policy-based rejection. He stood for a strongly remain constituency, and I suspect this is part of the reason why Peter Lilley stood down.
