Hello again; it’s been a while. I can only apologise for the length of time it’s taken to get me back on this site. Due to a mix of being too busy at home and pessimism on the state of national and international politics, it just hasn’t happened sooner.
So, Mrs May has finally decided to go. Far too late in my opinion. She should have gone sooner, much sooner. Good riddance, I say. This woman has failed at everything she has touched whilst Home Secretary and PM. An incompetent spiteful bungler.
As Home Secretary this woman presided over, amongst other things, the Windrush scandal, the decimation of public sector pensions (dating back 20 years!), the shambles of the Passport Office, the injustice of the labelling of certain protesters as ‘non violent extremists’ and being met with stony silence after addressing a meeting of the Police Federation in 2012. They clocked her early doors, didn’t they?
As PM her tenure has been dominated by Brexit or Brino (Brexit in name only) for the more cynically minded. Make no mistake, I blame David “I think I’d be rather good at it” Cameron for starting this mess, all to thwart a the right wing of his own party then running away like a wee lassie when he failed, leaving others to clear up his mess. And what a mess it’s been. It was started off by him putting party before country, a position that Treeza picked up and repeated time and again right up to the last. Of course all of that is well documented in detail elsewhere.
I will remember her for, rightly, describing the Tories as ‘the Nasty Party’ and her ‘really hostile environment’ for much more than illegal immigration. I will also remember her for repeatedly saying one thing and doing the other, her playing fast and loose with the truth about many things, misleading Parliament more than once and ripping up constitutional convention, all for the sake of the Nasty Party, at the expense of ordinary people, quite literally in the case of the DUP. An utterly dishonest woman, through and through.
So, take your crocodile tears, stick them up your jumper and begone – never to darken public life again. I will not mourn your passing. Like other of you ilk, Bliar and his bunch of charlatans, the aforementioned Cameron and his economically illiterate sidekick Gideon, IDS (sic, IBS) and Dr Fox (who should have stuck to the Chart Show) I will be glad to see the back of you.
