What is confusing me with this strong leadership thing is that if you know you have 2 years to do the most amount of admin, law making and trade deal negotiating in our history - surely a strong leader would get on with it not waste 7 weeks on an election that just distracts from the very major task in hand. She already wasted months trying to overturn the commons vote high court decision. Far from strong leadership she just seems to be dicking around creating other things to do rather than than the really big important one.
Local election news: Jack Monroe looking to stand in Southend East or West (maybe using the libel money won from Katie Hopkins to fund the campaign) and former Tory party chairman Eric Pickles is quitting his Brentwood seat (probably the 3rd highest profile to quit after George Osborne and Alan Johnson)
Another high profile Tory falls on his own sword.
Edit.Sorry didn't see ASS's post.
"June marks the end of May."
just for you youngsters who may not understand the irony of Barna's post (I have always assumed all are ironic) the day the Toiries lose Brentwood and Ongar is the day the revolution comes. Come on Barna the man's 65 with a 21,000 majority with UKIP second. Falling on his sword my arse. He's retiring.
Same revolution that would see David Amess losing Southend West. Jack Monroe would only split the 500 anti Tory votes thus increasing Amess's majority.
I've not heard that interview all the way through but I like her generally - she speaks in a 'real' way and doesn't try to hide behind cliches - which I guess leaves her open to the odd gaff. I saw that Costa tweeted her saying its easy to get the coffee sellers mixed up (or something like that).
If it is in anyway acceptable to fancy a politician then I think she is buff tings.
