TORY WARS: BoJo Quashes Leadership Speculation

  • 322

Boris Johnson has seemingly quashed any speculation that he may be about to challenge Theresa May for the leadership of the Tories and therefore the keys to Number 10 by calling on Brexiteer Tories to NOT topple the PM.

He told an audience at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington that it is about “policy” not “leadership”. He said: “Its not about the leadership. Its about the policy. Its about chucking Chequers.”

He went onto argue that the Tories should return to Thatcherite values and “helping people seize control of their own lives.” Spelling out his vision of where he thinks the Conservatives should position themselves on the political landscape he said: “If you think back to the great achievements of the Thatcher era, it was about helping people seize control of their own destiny.”

His remarks reflect the general opinion of Senior Brexiteer Tory rebels such as himself and David Davis who has also eschewed calling for the removal of Mrs May though Mr Davis and his former principal advisor, Stewart Jackson, have been scathing about her performance as Prime Minister in the context of the Brexit negotiations.

    Here on the pages of Kipper Central, readers and writers are perhaps a little more bruised, and consequently more aware of political life, than most Johns and Janes and possibly enjoyed the Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister programs, for the humour but also for the insight into Senior Civil Servants thinking about Ministers ! Although there are some MPs who use standard English, or in other words, use the truth, generally the higher up the greasy pole they climb, the more inventive their language becomes, whilst keeping a very straight face ! In other words, YOU CAN’T TRUST THEM ! I’m sure I don’t know why, but the name of Heath comes to mind, and today Clegg or Blair. For these leaders, truth was a foreign language ! So BoJo ? ! Thanks Darrell.

      We didn’t realise at the time that Yes Minister etc were documentaries not comedy programmes, and Alan B’stard now looks like a kindly uncle in comparison with the present day bunch.

        Jim, this is why I believe that the stage is set for real UKIP involvement in Government of UK/GB ! It is also a reason for me to get angry in the dither of this Party, in the matter of Tommy Robinson !

    So Boris is a Tory first and a patriot second…..or third ?
    Pity, I quite liked him when he was our MP.

    “Help people seize control of their own lives”…..rather difficult with a Prime Minister hell-bent on letting Brussels continue the controlling. It’ll never happen unless she is made toast. How on earth they can all shy away from attempting to boot her out, I don’t know.

    “If you think back to the great achievements of the Thatcher era, it was about helping people seize control of their own destiny.”

    Great achievements of the Thatcher era? I can think of two – winning the Falklands war and the introduction of section 28

    But other than that? The murder of large parts of British industry and the selling off of what still existed, mass unemployment, appeasement of the IRA, allowing hundreds of thousands of immigrants to come into this country, appeasing the black mobs in places like Brixton, allowing the city of London to run rampant, the defence cuts which left the Falkland Islands vulnerable in the first place, doing nothing to cut the power of the BBC, betraying the Rhodesians etc.
