Keeping peace between Tories’ warring factions
Examiner reader Chris Thomas saw this cow in a field at South Crosland with markings that look like a question mark on its face. Perhaps it’s asking: ’Who am I?’ I REALLY enjoyed Nick Yates’ letter in Wednesday’s Feedback. I haven’t laughed so much for ages. In his defence of Mrs May, who was a dreadful Home Secretary but is now the most appalling Prime Minister since David Cameron, he claims she “bought time”.
Not quite sure for what. Surely she should be doing her, admittedly mediocre, best to improve the lot of the people of the UK. Sadly she seems to have forgotten the NHS, Education, Student Funding, Transport, Power Generation and Supply and our crumbling towns and cities. Instead she sees her job as keeping the peace between warring factions in the Tory party.
He makes several erroneous statements. One of these is his claim that the British people voted for Brexit. Hate to be picky but only some did.
This wasn’t to extricate themselves from the EU, that he rather fancifully suggests is reminiscent of the old USSR, but rather in response to apparent but unproven unchecked immigration increases.
I do agree however with his assertion that there are no credible overweight buffoon Johnson or David “thick as mince” Davis at the dispatch box.
The country is leaderless, rudderless and rapidly becoming internationally irrelevant to all those not openly laughing at it.
Greed and “dog eat dog” seem to be the popular philosophies dominating our lives and we deserve better. If this unattractive bunch cannot or will not put people before their own petty prejudices then we should get rid of them and soon! POLITICIANS are tearing this country apart.
Yes, Brexit is a reality and all MPs should be making sure we will be well prepared when the time comes.
Theresa May is 100% committed to getting the best deal, but even some who would have a go in her shoes are not to be trusted.
All this disarray is playing into the hands of the Europeans and they are possibly hoping it is not too late to change our minds.
Of course Theresa May is hoping to hang on but calling for a general election was a gamble which did not pay off.
MPs should now be concentrating on our future after Brexit. If we are combing the globe looking for trade will our industries be up to it to compete at prices which will lead to employment and not unemployment?
Worrying times, but all parties should be rowing in the same boat, rule Brittania.
