The strong and stable leader who swithered from remain to leave, the strong and stable leader who said no ifs no buts, immigration down below 100k, the strong and stable leader who said no election till 2020 and swithered again. The strong and stable leader who does not accept questions, debates or even let her cabinet members on the campaign trail. Utter incompetence faced against utter incredibility.
We have voted to buy a ticket to leave, nothing more. if the strong and stable leader does not know where she is taking us, why should she not say to the people after 2 years, "sorry chaps this place I can get you to. It is jolly crap but its the best I can do, why don't we just stay where we are and have a nice cup of tea".
This is the most momentous decision for 60 years, why should she not display her negotiated achievement and put it to the people for a vote. if its as good as is made out it will certainly be a shoe -in. That will then put paid to any remoaning. and we will then genuinely all be in it together, a country united, "praecipue in faecam "
Muammar Gadaffi brought strong and stable leadership. Saddam Hussein brought strong and stable leadership. Purely because it is a dog whistle for the simple folk , "strong and stable" is not a panacea, any more than the "take back control" was for the simple minded brexiteers. But they lapped it up.
As i said, voting Tory instead of voting Labour is a bit like voting for Bruce Reynolds instead of Ronnie Biggs.
He wouldn't have read it before if it's not straight out of Chairman Mao's little red book of Latin quotes, he's not interested. I assume by the things he says and quotes he makes he obviously went to one of these mind bending schools they call university. Hot beds for left wing rhetoric. The one thing he doesn't say with all his rants against TM is what an alternative plan is under any of the other leaders.
He uses Gaddafi and Hussain as examples of likenesses to May, shows off by showing he knows their first names (or more likely Google's them) and can't even do one of them the credit of spelling his name correctly. I'm surprised he didn't use Adolf Hitler as an example. All the talk of a caring society, going for the throat of pensioners and trading them off against the disabled. Bringing into question the record of the Tories on the economy whilst forgetting to factor in the ever increasing population, caused, not only by the ageing populace, but also by the influx of people from all over the globe.
Always accusations aimed at "right wing media" perhaps they are right, not everything you read in the papers is true, equally not all the nonsense spouted by lefty lecturers is true.
