Gotta get down to it,
the Tories are cutting us down.
Agreed, but with Jeremy Corbyn as the alternative there's not really an opposition.
Far right or far left and no common sense alternative
I don't think that's right Joe. Despite policies on Brexit appealing to right wing supporters, there is no way that you could call this Conservative administration far right - that is a completely different proposition. The Corbynistas and the Momentum lot could be deemed far leftish but even then there is more ground to travel. And you do have moderates such as Tom Watson for checks and balances.
Where I do agree with you is bemusement why neither party wants to seize the fertile, middle ground - the result of which is the upswell in LibDem support (along with their Remainer following).
I think they are heading further right Frank.
The appointment of Boris will see a man not even trusted to talk in public by his advisors.
A Remainer who jumped on the Leave campaign to boost his leadership ambitions. I'm pretty confident his campaign slogans will be shock tactics about suicide vests etc. Explained away as that's Boris, he's larger than life. Expect Boris wandering around in a red baseball cap. MBGA
Given his performance as Foreign Secretary - how well did that go?
He is an egotistical clown for me.
Jeremy Hunt is the adult choice with a proven track record, but I expect Boris and a further shift to the right.
It's nothing to do with what's best for the country.
I think either candidate would beat Jeremy Corbyn, but the Tory party will vote for Boris to stop them tearing themselves apart, such is their myopic obsession with the EU.
