I find It Impossible To Support Any Other Candidate For Tory Leader.
Greg Lance – Watkins
Thursday 30 June 2016
There is not much to fault with Theresa May’s speech:
First, Brexit means Brexit. The campaign was fought, the vote was held, turnout was high, and the public gave their verdict. There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door, and no second referendum. The country voted to leave the European Union, and it is the duty of the Government and of Parliament to make sure we do just that.
Gove was less impressive, offering only “in the next few days” to lay out his plan for the United Kingdom. But behind Gove is the poisonous Dominic Cummings: the two go together. That is not a happy choice.
At least though, we are freed from the possibility of Johnson as Prime Minister. I’ve not made any secret of my dislike for him, a loathsome creature who has made a career out of lying, and fronted a disastrous “leave” campaign which was centred on a lie. We are well rid of him.
In the Vote Leave campaign, however, Gove also supported the lie. On that basis alone, he cannot be trusted to manage our exit negotiations. That he is totally opposed to continued participation in the Single Market, in my view, further rules him out.
Perversely, I think the exit negotiations are probably better off in the hands of a “reformed” remainer such as Theresa May. After all, the final arbiter of the settlement is not the Prime Minister, but Parliament. Let those who spoke for a return of Parliamentary sovereignty now hold Parliament’s feet to the fire, and demand that it does its job of holding the Executive to account – if it can.
And, on that basis, the best candidate for Conservative Leader seems to be Mrs May.

I must say I applaud Boris Johnsons common sense move to avoid the embarrassment of a humiliating defeat as a man one may wish to give a job to, on a tight rein, but not a man to be trusted having so frequently been proven to lie. It is also questionable just how hard line a Remainer he was as it was clear that he Dominic Cummings, Matthew Elliott & others in the Leave Campaign were not trusty allies of those who actually wished to leave! Already willing it seems to sell out for their own ambitions!
Then we have Liam Fox who has over many years failed to shine or show leadership qualities and his actions relative to his personal adviser a few years back were not just an abuse of office but clearly in poor taste! Behaviour which I believe, like that of David Laws should have precluded him from holding public office ever again.
Stephen Crabb with his clear lack of experience compounded qwith his extreme and arcane religious beliefs espousing the ‘curing’ of homosexuals must surely render him unsuitable for any public office in this more enlightened world even as part of a team.
Then finally Andrea (who) has anyone heard of her, can they remember any achievement of note beyond her bravura performance in the Wembley Debate – sorry but although I am sure she is a very pleasant woman just what expertiswe does she bring to her claim to lead the Tory Party and be our Prime Minister, though I am sure she will prove a great assett in a future Cabinet that Theresa May leads.
Personally I am suspicious of Michael Gove, a view reinforced by his questionable judgement in joining the Vote Leave which will for ever more associate him with his old adviser Dominic Cummings who I consider worthy of trusting as far as one can kick him. Matthew Elliott is no better!
As I cautioned, during the BreXit Campaign, I believed that Vote Leave was nothing more than a device for data mining with a vbiew to mounting a palace coup to put their man in control of Downing Street – that Michael Gove and his cronies have, we understand, stolen the data base of mined information from under the nose of Boris Johnson adds conviction to my warning!
That Dominic Cummings & Michael Gove have worked closely on previous issues I incline to the opinion that it was always their intention to place Gove as the front runner having ridden on the populism and undeniable intellect and media platforms of their rival Boris Johnson – When the leaked memo from Sarah Vine was added to the mix one can only speculate but that that was a part of the tactics within their strategy I have little doubt!
I appreciate that politics tends to be a dirty business but in putting himself forward in the manner he has done I believe Michael Gove has precluded himself other than in a functionary role.

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain having only 8%, if united, say. The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy; yet The EU & many of its vassal States are willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States to impose The EU’s chosen brand of democracy on them!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.
There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, when we leave the EU, using a better negotiated & updated version of the ‘Norway Model’ as a stepping stone to becoming a full member of the Eropean Economic Area, where all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU’s vassal regions, with an EFTA style status and can trade and negotiate independently on the global stage, as members of The Commonwealth and the Anglosphere.One huge benefit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly in our own interest and that of our partners around the world in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and term imposed by unelected EU bureacrats and their ionterpretation of the rules handed down as if they were some great achievement by the EU.The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
