When the utterly discredited Theresa May goes, which will be sooner rather than later, the Tories would be well-advised to forget about Bumbling Boris and make current Brexit minister David Davis their new leader. In my opinion, he would give the Tories their best chance by far of defeating Corbyn’s resurgent Labour Party at the next election, which can’t be far away..
For a Tory, he’s quite a decent chap. Unusually for his Party, he has a sense of humour and also a few principles, having resigned from the Cabinet in 2008 specifically to launch a campaign designed to provoke wider public debate about the erosion of civil liberties in the UK. In January 2010 he spoke with Tony Benn at the official launch of civil liberties campaign group Big Brother Watch. Davis refused Cameron’s invitation to join the Coalition Cabinet after the 2010 election, disagreeing with the government’s stance on tuition fees. He’s no toff either, which also helps, having been brought up by a single mother on a council estate in Tooting.
The Tories have become very adept at shooting themselves in the foot recently, though……….(cue Boris) 😉
