The absolute failure of Theresa May

0

The only single saving grace from the failed politicians handbook that has been Theresa’s entire term is that now, with her resignation imminent and a Tory leadership contest all but certain to return Boris “the big bad” Johnson as its victor (and we can only hope it does!) no deal is well and truly back on the table, and probably close to the favourite.

Theresa may, in her infinite and undying wisdom, has come to parliament and the British public with yet another valiant, poetic deal. Thank god, as her deal making prowess is, as we all know, an awesome spectacle.

You see, for a Tory leader who has gone from polling 40% in 2017 to polling LESS THAN 10% in 2019, she is still awfully confident. Or deluded. Or arrogant. Or all three… For Mrs May has seen fit to bring a deal and finally cement her position in the pages of history: She is a remainer and a spineless charlatan.

She has been doing what she can to dilute the glorious exercise of democratic excellence that is Brexit and has finally thrown all her chips in and her cards on the table, breaking the final fictitious fallacy of a red line that was her “strong opposition” to a second referendum. We can now see that for exactly what it was; a barefaced sanctimonious lie designed to bring the Brexiteer factions within her party to heel.

She has done this whilst at the same time overseeing a government of the Investigatory Powers Acts, encouraging the snooping and state invasion into the private lives of its citizens, of increasing state influence over the NHS, wasting money while our police services fail, whilst taxing everything from tobacco to sugar out of affordability for the working class to whom they are probably the most important.

Sure, they have cut income tax, but at what cost? If reducing the size of the state isn’t the intention of the policy, as clearly it has not been, then it is a hollow gesture of ideological adequacy, a thinly failed disguise for the ideological weakness of Theresa’s Tories.

Under the tenure of Theresa May, the Conservative government hasn’t just done everything within its power to destroy Brexit, save for a few notable members (and to be fair pretty much the entire grass roots membership), it has destroyed “small c” conservatism. It has robbed the centre right, individualist, free market, minimal tax thinker of a home. It has created the power vacuum required to sustain things like The Brexit Party.

The only single saving grace from the failed politicians handbook that has been Theresa’s entire term is that now, with her resignation imminent and a Tory leadership contest all but certain to return Boris “the big bad” Johnson as its victor (and we can only hope it does!) no deal is well and truly back on the table, and probably close to the favourite.

Her tenure has been a chronicle of stuttering statements, cowardly capitulation, shoddy statesmanship and pathetic politics. The Conservative party – the party which produced leaders with the calibre of Sir Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher – is a party of strength, of character, of virtue and of principle; conservatism is an ideology of strength, character, virtue and principle. The party can do better than Theresa May, conservatism can do better than Theresa May, and the voters deserve better than Theresa May.
