Atrocious June 18, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

The only word to describe this charade where five people who know little and seem to care not a bit vied for the premiership of a large state to our east and stewardship of a crisis that has been three years in the making and for which they appear not to understand its parameters or have anything approaching a solution.

Or as the Guardian said:

It is hard to recall any other televised leadership debate that reflected so badly on the party concerned. This went out in a BBC primetime slot and yet, the biggest issue of the day, Brexit, the five people vying to be the next PM singularly failed to allay the concerns that were put to them by viewers. Will no-deal put by husband out of business? Don’t worry, there will be some “economic turbulence”, but we’ll get through it, said Michael Gove. Will you be able to keep the Irish border open? All the candidates said it should be kept open, but none could say how. In fact, on Brexit, no one could answer the how question at all.

And then there’s the small, but far from insignificant, issue that none of them appear to have realised that they’ve been in and out of government personally for a party in power almost a decade now which makes their wailing and gnashing of teeth over various ills genuinely nauseating.

That’s an incredible statistic but it does tell us something about the attitudes within Toryism. And agreed, Corbyn and the LP – they’re genuinely terrified of it. I don’t think Johnson is the medicine to cure that particular ailment.
