British Politics

Postby Callum » Tue Jul 05, 2016 5:35 pm

As there's so much going on in British politics right now I figured it'd be best to dedicate an entire thread to discussing it rather than filling the EU referendum thread with loosely related stuff.

Theresa May has topped the first round of voting in the Tory leadership election:

All of them should just bow out, only Theresa and Andrea are even worth looking at from the Remain and Leave camps.

I think May is going to be the clear winner though, Andrea has good strong ideas but I'm not sure she has the experience to cope with the rough and tumble politics of Brussels the way May can, May has much more political muscle.

I wouldn't mind May winning with Andrea getting a position in her cabinet.

No surprises with the first vote and there will be no surprises tomorrow when it's down to May and Leadsom. Theresa should win comfortably but who knows these days.

I hope Leadsom wins. Don't want BREXITER's whining again. Let them have their perfect BREXIT so they can shut up

Btw, two people will be left before the public vote. Rumours May is going to give some of her votes to Gove to knock out Leadsom

Been trying hard not to respond to this, but I find the above post a bit rich. It’s the Remains who have been whining, throwing their dollies out of the pram because they didn’t get what they wanted. On here and tramping the streets of London demanding a re vote, calling Brexiters racist and stupid.

Brexiters are the ones acting with dignity over the referendum.

I think Leadsom will win. After all, it's Tory members not Tory MPs who make the final decision. As she has been essentially crowned as Boris' heir, she will have a good chance because I'm sure that Tory members will want a true conservative (small c) party again rather than the neo-liberal party Cameron turned it into.

Maybe that means Boris will become Chancellor or Deputy Prime Minister given that he decided not to run. Personally I think he should have as he lead Vote Leave and was a shoe-in to win the contest.

For the simple reason that no true conservative would ever have thought about introducing homosexual "marriage" or attempted to abolish the House of Lords.

We will have another female Prime Minister. May won with the other one second and Gove knocked out. It now goes to Tory members for the final vote.
