SON OF GRIDKNOCKER

FORTHCOMING PM ELECTION

Recommended Posts

Well, folks, seems it will soon be time to focus on the Leadership election, as Mrs May has now indicated that she’ll be jumping ship in June. Let’s not go into the boring detail of who the aspirants for this lucrative job are, save to point out that the casting votes in the second round of the contest (the first round is restricted to the 330 serving Conservative MPs in the Commons) are vested only in paid-up members of the Conservative & Unionist Party of the UK. And at the last count there were a mere 125,000 of them – mostly with Bus Passes and many with limited life expectancy.

Against a UK population of just over 66 million. So the next British Prime Minister will be elected by just under 2% of the population. Does that sound fair to you?

                                                                                                         ANYONE BUT BORIS

The time has come for politics to be taught correctly in UK schools,  so that young people feel engaged and understand the importance of their role in society. Of course the Cons do not want that to happen, they want the elite taught at Eton and the banking mogul's to carry on keeping the 'riff raff' at the bottom of the pile. The Tory right wing press rail against Corbyn with real venom where is the balance. The Brexit party are ruling the BBC airwaves, once again no balance.

The dinosaur parties of left and right are broken.

I will leave you with this thought 75% of Americans believe it is wrong that the Arabic numbering system is taught in US schools.

As long as it is a BREXITEER, not someone like Theresa May, In my opinion she SHOULD NEVER  just walk in to the job of Prime Minister, there should of been an General Election to chose the PM, and definitely not a Remainer to negotiate our coming out of the European Union. The people spoke in June 2016 to Leave, well lets just get on with it!!!

Just to point out and this is the problem with the UKs voting system. If 100 people were in a room only 37 voted for Brexit.

The problem is this and my Polish and Portuguese friends agree. The European Economic Community turned into a Federal Government headed up by Germany and France.

No good will come of this Vanity project caused by Cameron to try and save the arse of the Tories. British politics is now broken with the Left and Right split into many factions.

'So the next British Prime Minister will be elected by just under 2% of the population.' ~ The method for selecting the Tory Leader is up to the Tory Party. I'm not a Member so I don't have a vote. If people don't want a Tory Prime Minister then don't vote Tory in 2022.

Regardless of ones political affiliations, it is bad enough to have one Prime Minister walking into the job without any sort of public mandate, but it looks ominously like history will be repeating itself again in 2019.

Who is the least worst Candidate standing for South Hereford in the next General Election? Too early to say. The Election may be called earlier as well. I agree with the FPTP electoral system but it is heavily skewed against Candidates without cash.

Well at last Theresa May has RESIGHNED this morning, not by her choice she met the chairman of the 1922 committee, and he said the other day  she would be gone on Friday. Now let see who going to put their name forward for real!!

It’s going to be a two-horse race – and both of them are clapped out nags only good for pulling Steptoe and Son’s rag and bone cart.

The candidate who has major media backing undoubtedly has the high ground. So no prizes for guessing which candidate the Barclay brothers’ Daily Torygraph will be putting its weight behind. And with his wife employed as the paper’s highest-paid columnist (now that Ross-on-Wye resident Quentin Letts has gone), the Daily Mail will have to be Gurning Gove’s cheerleader.

Did anyone else spot Mrs May’s remark at the end of her resignation address about not being the last woman Prime Minister? Was this, I wonder, a subtle hint that her vote in the leadership election with be going to Penny Mordaunt, who she recently appointed in succession to the hapless Gavin ‘Private Pike’ Williamson?

And the least-likely contender to make it onto the members’ ballot papers? The self-important Sajid Javid. As veteran columnist Polly Toynbee observed in Saturday’s Graun, people are tired of hearing his: “My dad was a bus driver” story.

From The Slog today 26th May 2019:

Quote

 

Theresa May left Downing Street as she entered it: uttering lies about honouring a Brexit she never wanted, and claiming to want a Britain of real equality while denying a basic civil right to 3.64 million female pensioners.

She lied about there being no money-tree, and then offered a quite staggering €39 billion to Brussels…without reason, advantage, or legal need.

She lied about leaving the EU on March 29th, and then blamed MPs when it didn’t happen.

She lied about saying she’d prefer No Deal to a bad deal.

She lied about there being only one alternative to her “deal” – No Deal – and then tried to dilute that diktat further still.

She lied to Brussels about the chances of selling the Diktat to Westminster.

She then began lying (alongside her allies in the Labour Party) about the “dire disaster” that would follow departure without a deal.

She lied about the desire to have an election: she didn’t want a “stronger bargaining position with Brussels”, she wanted a bigger majority to force Brino through the House of Commons. She lost.

Facing obduracy from MPs, she turned to her Home Office chums in Whitehall, and stood by to watch unconstitutional action piled upon illegal subterfuge as unelected Alt States colluded in England, Belgium, Germany and France to undermine clean, sovereign Brexit.

She lied about saying she would never accept a Second Referendum, and then openly offered one to a bunch of scheming, anti-democratic IS Marxists across the corridor.

She lied about leaving the customs union, saying it “had never been an assumption” during the Referendum campaign…an untruth upon which the likes of Jess Philips greedily fed.

Doesn't matter which PM we get, it will always end in LIES. Roll on an election and clear the lot out.

One omission from the excellent list of lies which Megi brought us (above), is the £1-billion bung which Mrs May conveniently conjured up from that non-existent Money Tree growing in the back garden on 10 Downing Street to keep the Ulster Flat Earth & Anti-Abortionist Party on side.

Lets hope the Eton Banking Masonic party are now broken beyond repair. Emily Thornberry admitted Jezza and Lab had backed the wrong horse.

Eat your hearts out David Owen, Woy Jenkins, Shirley Williams and that other bloke who never spoke. It took aeons of navel-gazing to form the SDP, yet it burnt out (or was sold off to the FibDems) after only 7 years.

Nigel Farrage has every reason to look as pleased as Punch. In just six weeks he invented a manifesto-free party, he didn’t get distracted by tiresome details like members’ subs, he got ‘egged’ by a well-aimed banana and caramel milkshake, and one third of all those who bothered to turn out to vote in last Thursday’s pointless EU elections now think he’s the next Messiah.

I think Boris Johnson will have a problem of entering the race with court proceedings against him, if it goes the wrong way he could find himself in prison.

Have any other VOICE members noticed the uncanny resemblance between Tory leadership hopeful Jeremy Hunt and the vile Syrian despot Bashar al-Assad?

In fact, has anyone ever seen them in the same room together?

According to  news and papers this morning 5 of the candidates are about to drop out of the running for PM, also 4 have admitted taking drugs within the last 20 years. The papers have really gone to town on Michael Gove for taking cocaine also Andrew Marr asked him on his show this morning should he be standing for PM position.

Have you got the percentage of the British Population [to hand] who voted for Corbyn to be the next Prime Minister? I'm obviously referring to the Leadership Election he won. People need to recognise the difference between Party Leadership Elections and General Elections.

You are 'out of touch' with reality. That court case never got off the ground. Anyone could see that!

Roger....  was not 'out of touch' when I posted that information the court case was going through, a couple of days later it said on the news it had been quoshed. Apparently the man that brought the case they found out something about him, also he is a Remainer.
