In response to John Redwood: May’s decline and fall,
John Redwood is clearly, in his heart and mind, a true conservative Conservative. I respect that and wish him well.
Having said that, his article here is, of course, far too polite regarding this, the most awful PM we’ve ever had in my near six decades, now completed. She has wrecked her party and made my beloved country an international laughing stock. We have been perilously close to becoming a vassal state of the EU and, in a short while, we will be dangerously close to having a quasi-communist government imposed upon us.
The only upside is that, finally, the Tory party is now revealed to all but the most blindly stupid as not conservative, not patriotic and most definitely unfit to govern. The contenders for the post of PM clearly do not have clue as to what conservatism is. They are at best incompetents and at worst, frauds.
Seven years ago I left the Conservatives in despair due to a combination of Cameron’s very unconservative same-sex, so-called marriage Act, which he had lied about, and his opposition to us becoming a free, sovereign nation again. Then I supported, in turn, first Ukip followed by Vote Leave, working actively for both groups. Ukip has collapsed, but their hopes for freedom live on. I shall never vote Conservative again – the very word is an insult to both my intelligence and honesty.
So I pin my hopes on the Brexit Party. Nigel Farage is very sharp mentally, is a superb communicator, believes in his country and its main values, believes in freedom of conscience and speech including religious freedom for Christians, which the Conservatives have compromised, and moreover, he is basically honest. He gets on well with our main ally and trade partner, the US.
Providing he has a steady, sound deputy at his right hand and people to handle the details, he would make a good CEO, as a frontman. The Brexit Party must come through. Any future Conservative leader would be well advised, to be prepared to work with both the Brexit Party and our staunch Irish friends in the DUP. This country now needs God’s blessing – pray for it!
