Indeed John. Everything must bow down to the false god of Brexit.
For the life of me I can't understand why Patel is rated so highly. Frankly she shouldn't even be in a job bearing in mind why May sacked her. When you think of great Tory Home Secretaries such as Douglas Hurd it just goes to shown how low we have sunk that somebody of the calibre of Ms Patel is in the job/.
Its not really that . it's his cavalier treatment of the truth for starters. In a sense all else stems from that. I don't mind him or anyone come to that being a one off or colourful character. But that seems to me its all he is. There's nothing beyond that .
No but my dear wife is. A pretty tasteless remark from you.
That is true. I just think Boris is a disgrace as a PM. Somewhere along the line there has got to be some gravity. I'm also no longer prepared to put up with misleading (some would call it downright lies) statements which seem to be made up to get him out of a hole. It would be only too easy to get used to this degradation of public life and start to accept that maybe after all these are just old fashioned standards. Not for me I'm afraid.
Frankly I thought Boris was a total disgrace today at PMQ's. I say that as a Conservative. I felt ashamed of him as my PM. Security is serious stuff and the Govt has been found badly wanting. No time for cheap and indeed innacurate jibes. I've had enough of this charlatan.
Leavers are the very last people who should talk about "a permanent sense of grievance." If you had lost the Referendum you would not have accepted the result as permanent (as Farage made clear on that night) but would have gone on and on banging on about Europe. Gauke has always struck me as a thoughtful and decent guy who has a mind of his own and frankly there is no reason why ConHome should be exclusively populated by Leavers including the Gaukes of this world unless of course you want to turn Party even more into a narrow sect.
Some of the attitudes on here trouble me. There are quite a few people like me who whilst respecting the results of the Referendum are at heart pro EU and believe from the bottom of our heart that leaving is the biggest strategic mistake this Country has made post War. My view on that is highly unlikely to change as neither would those of you have changed your minds on Brexit if you had lost. The way some of the remarks toward David Gauke are styled they are quite abusive and disrespectful to a thoroughly decent guy.My question is this. Is there or is there not still a place in the Conservative family for somebody like me? I have no entitlement as such to still belong but it would be reassuring to know that there is still a place! Cheers.
