Subject: RE: BS: UK General Election
I think that Mrs May is the real deal, she has gravitas and a good political mind.
I said a couple of years a go that she would be the next leader of the Conservative Party.

The most important thing for me at the moment (even more important than Scottish Independence), is extricating this country from the undemocratic shambles that is the EU. Immigration control was the main driver for Brexit and there is no point in remoaners whining about the Free Market etc as Without Free Movement of Labour these things are impossible to obtain.
The Remoaners inside and outside parliament are simply trying to sabotage the referendum result. Mrs May thinks that the only way to shut them up is to obtain a large mandate from the electorate. There are risks involved, risks she did not have to take, she could have pressed on and followed through on the aftermath of winning the section 50 vote.......but I think there may be some skulduggery going on amongst the remoamers and their Blairite fellow travellers in the House of Lords which Mrs May is attempting to head off.

Anyway, this Scottish Socialist will be voting for Teresa and the Conservative Party for the first time in his life.
