Election 24-2

 The polls are predicting a massive win for the Labour Party in the forthcoming election, not motivated by any great affection for Sir Kier Starmer's but by overwhelming dissatisfaction with a stale Conservative Party under an unelected prime Minister, Rishi Sunak.

Could it be that Britain is not yet ready for a non-white Hindu Prime Minister, however competent? Could it be that a Tory Party headed by a white, passionately nationalistic candidate would be doing much better in the polls? It's almost as if the electorate, being unhappy that Sunak wasn't elected to his position by anyone, are taking things into their own hands.

So strong is this feeling among the electorate that they don't care that the Socialists' agenda will make them poorer, less safe and more European dominated.

Politics today

 As the election looms ever closer it seems. despite the gulf in polling statistics, that there is little to choose between the two main parties. One wonders if the gap is more to do with dissatisfaction with the Tories rather than support for the Socialists. The problems are the same and one has some sympathy for the ruling party having to negotiate the difficulties of multiple wars around the world and covid where bilions were spent supporting businesses that would otherwise have gone under. However, that said they are a lacklustre bunch headed by an unelected man who inspires no confidence whatsoever. He's a clever speaker but Sunak isn't a man one would go over the top for. However, in general the Tories do have some competent members. Listen to the Youtube clip from a few years ago demonstrating the gulf in quality between Penny Mordaunt and Angel Rayner.

In my blog of July 2021 I propose that the Tories look to their ladies for leadership. After the forthcoming election, they may have no other choice.
