Ten thoughts to sleep on about how our new Prime Minister was crowned

meglycinessnip 1. She was Home Secretary, and thus close to both MI5 & MI6

2. The one article showing how incompetent she’d been as Home Secretary was pulled from the Telegraph within an hour of it appearing

3. Last week, The Slog ran an exclusive suggesting that Tory Grassroots support was 4:1 for Brexit, and thus likely also to be heavily in favour of electing Brexit candidate Andrea Leadsom

4. Two days later, a Tory Grassroots spokesmen said the May camp would be “surprised by the size of support for Leadsom”

5. The next day, Murdoch’s Times newspaper ran a front page lead reporting an interview in which Leadsom made “a jibe” about May not having children

6. She did say it, but the Leadsom camp were certain she was set up

7. Two days later, Leadsom pulled out of the race

8. This is the second time in the last three that a PM has been crowned without any election by those outside Westminster

9. Once again, Murdoch was the King maker

10. May’s name is Theresa, not Ruth. This suggests strongly that she is ruthless.

  4. I am reminded that T May stood before the party conference in 2002 and declared ‘ we are perceived as the nasty party ‘ This statement was true insofar as it described the parliamentary members of the Conservatives who had by various means degraded themselves in the eyes of the electorate. To apply such a comment to the party as a whole ( members and voters) was derisory and showed her lack of analytical skills.
    She will be judged on her brexit performance and already Mr Cameron has homed in on how friendly we should be to our EU brothers and sisters. The watering can is being filled up now !!
    However it must be said that those who led the brexit campaign have failed to live up to expectations with the exception of A L and her time and contribution will come.

  5. In my mind until proven otherwise because it is the only way to deal with people who fail in their previous post, have no connection with a substantial part of the population (dear old Maggie I think was wonderful in comparison), will sell you out as fast as she can … just like liar Blair

    GUTTER TRASH … now leave me alone.

    What’s the betting she can’t issue article 50 by Xmas? Odds please because i will put a £10.00 on it. Xmas is 5 months out still… not a chance.

    May’s position on Article 50 is that Britain needs to get it’s negotiating strategy agreed on prior to invoking Article 50, so she intends going for it in early 2017, meaning the time runs out in early 2019. She then has 9 – 15 months until a General Election to either run for the hills or seek a new mandate.

    It’s very easy to get stroppy about this, but Britain is so unprofessional that the Civil Service hadn’t developed contingency plans prior to the Referendum, so they have to be done now.

    However, the stories being bandied about in the press as to who will get which jobs do not make for good reading……..it’s jobs for favours, not jobs on merit. ‘Amber Rudd due a big promotion’ – do me a favour, every time she opens her mouth I want her to shut it again. ‘Gideon for FCO and Boris for Home Secretary’ – I’ve seen ways of destroying Britain, but a bullshitting Bullingdon boy needing to master the Home Office brief and the sycophantic Remainer who said Britain would go down the tubes with brexit tasked with stopping us doing so seems to be about as good as it gets.

    I hold my fire, as if the front pages of the tabloids are as accurate as their football stories, this is just made up drivel.

    But if Mrs May has asked Rupert Murdoch to draw up her Cabinet, she should be stabbed in the front, side and back before the summer recess comes and goes…….

  7. “‘These are the reasons why, under my leadership, the Conservative Party will put itself – completely, absolutely, unequivocally – at the service of working people.’

    er, forgive me, but this statement seems to suggest that Terry is actually a Leftie! if she manages what she promises she may be our best minister ever. However she ballsed up the biggest child abuse enquiry which was vital for Britain to heal itself. I don’t think she knows what a hornets nest she is getting into. Operation Gladio may take care of her if she doesn’t toe the line.

  9. Absolutely right John, Mrs Leadsom was beautifully suckered , as was Vince transatlantic Cable when he was threatening old stinker Murdoch and his Sky empire.
    As a total aside is it not amazing how quickly the Chilcott report has disappeared, 7 years in the making 5 minutes in the sweeping under the carpet. Still the best analysis on the report I saw came from old Icke himself it’s well worth watching.

  10. I read that a group of Tory women came out in support of Theresa May after that notorious interview. According to my understanding, all of them were from the ‘Remain’ group. I also read that May’s chief adviser has not ruled out a second referendum with the additional comment that people can change their mind.
    Add to this that May’s main claim to fame is her experience as Home Minister. A role in which her performance was at best mediocre.
    Add this to the points you make above and my conclusion is that a new deal will be negotiated with Brussels and you will see May triumphantly waving a piece of paper in the Commons before announcing a second referendum.
    As for her current position on Brexit, well politicians change their minds all the time.

  11. Mr Ward,

    you describe the state of Britain’s democracy in these few lines:

    5. The next day, Murdoch’s Times newspaper ran a front page lead reporting an interview in which Leadsom made “a jibe” about May not having children

    6. She did say it, but the Leadsom camp were certain she was set up

    7. Two days later, Leadsom pulled out of the race

    It is how the rich and powerful keep their people under control. That they hate Corbyn is shown by the fact that he has problems being allowed to have his name on the ballot paper for the upcoming Labour Leadership vote. (See today’s Telegraph).

    That he is supported by the grassroots – as Leasdom was – means nothing. Britain’s democracy is all about what is seen to be done in the Houses of Parliament. And it is about these activities because they can be co-ordinated with the wishes of those controlling these houses.

    This was a problem that should have been sorted long before Britain voted to join the European Union.

    In or out, they’ve got Westminster where it hurts.

    If TTIP as a thing is close to death, TTIP as a way of thinking is alive and well and residing in England.

    But the only way to do this is ditch the Victorian-era ideology that the market knows best, and embrace a world that exists for the maximisation of human welfare, recognising that this is the 21st century, not the 19th.

    Brief correction – Britain never voted to join the European Union. It was led into the European Economic Community by its elected government in 1973, but the people of Britain were never given the opportunity to express their opinion on it before the fact.

    Thanks for posting that. It is almost as disturbing to see my own conclusions being independently reproduced by the much demonised David Icke as it is to support Brexit alongside Johnson, Gove and Murdoch. It is a reminder that in forming an opinion, one should focus primarily on the available facts, rather than the personalities and records of those making the arguments for one side or another. I find it far too easy to forget this at times.

  14. Mudplugger,

    “Britain never voted to join the European Union”

    the government did hold a referendum in 1975 where the vote was to enter the European Union.

    I can appreciate that this was not done before negotiations had begun. I am well aware that the British government regards democracy as both tiresome and irrelevant. In this light, I wonder how long it will take Theresa May to find out that “leaving the EU will be too complicated and expensive” and will decide that it is better to stay in?

    It is what the corporations want, after all.

  16. Gemma – ‘the government did hold a referendum in 1975 where the vote was to enter the European Union.’

    Read the pre-referendum information leaflet here –

    http://www.harvard-digital.co.uk/euro/pamphlet.htm

    Title – ‘This page contains the text of the Government produce pamphlet advocating a vote to stay in the “European Community (Common Market)” in the 1975 British Referendum on continuing British membership.’

    The only mention of ‘union’ is this part –

    ‘There was a threat to employment in Britain from the movement in the Common Market towards an Economic & Monetary Union. This could have forced us to accept fixed exchange rates for the pound, restricting industrial growth and putting jobs at risk. This threat has been removed.’

    Examine some of the other pledges made within, for example the ‘Will parliament lose its power’ section –

    ‘Another anxiety expressed about Britain’s membership of the Common Market is that Parliament could lose its supremacy, and we would have to obey laws passed by unelected ‘faceless bureaucrats’ sitting in their headquarters in Brussels……..[snip]….’Membership of the Common Market also imposes new rights and duties on Britain, but does not deprive us of our national identity’….[snip]…’No important new policy can be decided in Brussels or anywhere else without the consent of a British Minister answerable to a British Government and British Parliament.’

    The 1975 referendum was clearly not a referendum on joining the European Union, but a referendum on joining the ‘European Community (Common Market)’ – as stated in the title of the referendum information leaflet. Surely even you can observe that the European Union is a completely different beast to the European Community which was what people voted on in 1975?

    The 1975 referendum was not about JOINING anything, it was only about STAYING IN something.

    The act of joining was foisted on the British people two years earlier (1st January 1973) without their view ever being sought. Whether it was called the Common Market, EEC, EC, EU or anything else is immaterial – we were never asked in advance whether we wanted to JOIN it. I was there and my bitter memory of those treacherous times remains unerringly accurate.

    Let us cut to the chase: “I was there and my bitter memory of those treacherous times remains unerringly accurate.”

    These treacherous times – brought about by a so-called democratic government – is the government you live under (assuming you live in the UK). It is the treacherous government you voted ‘out’ to live under.

    It has already started, according to the DT:

    Long enough for the British electorate to forget they voted ‘out’, don’t you think? Then your democratic government can demonstrate just how treacherous they really are.

  19. I am under no illusion that the present government could choose to be as treacherous as the Heath version back in ’73.
    We elect our governments on a mixed manifesto, a compromise where few voters agree with every single policy of the party they choose to support on balance.
    A referendum is quite different, it’s a single issue, binary choice. If a government, of whatever hue, sets out to evade the expressed wish of the electorate in a referendum, that’s courageous, foolhardy and probably fatal to many who happen to be out on the wrong streets at the wrong time. But I’ll be out there with them.
