A Milder May

As Theresa May’s lead in the poll halves and Jamie Oliver criticizes her policy on universal free school lunches for infants, we call on voters to act with their feet and remind the Tory leader that moderates still deserve to be heard

 

There’s no point denying Theresa May will win on the 8th June and there’s no doubt she’ll win big. The ‘alternative’ – not that Jeremy Corbyn’s pathetic excuse for a party can even be called that – is beyond bad but, with news that the Conservative Party’s lead has halved to 9 points in a week, comes good news for those that do not subscribe to a desire for a one party state.

 

With the prospect that Mrs May – whose attempt to make her ‘Strong and Stable’ campaign about ‘Theresa’s Team’ rather than using the name of her own party is starting to backfire – will not have as big a majority as she expected, there is a chance there will be at least some form of opposition to the vicar’s daughter’s hectoring ways.

 

In constituencies like Kensington, for example, ‘Remain’ supporters should vote against a shown-to-be lazy MP, Lady Borwick, and back Annabel Mullin of the Liberal Democrats – a lady who issued several video messages yesterday pledging to ‘#HoldToriesToAccount’. A protest vote in this Tory stronghold would send the most powerful signal of all to Mrs May that her “red, white and blue hard Brexit” needs to be tempered and it would act as a reminder that the 48% must still be heard.

Elsewhere, food campaigner and restaurateur Jamie Oliver spoke for the majority when he put his head in his hands and told Channel 4: “Oh, it’s awful. It’s awful. She will regret that” of the Conservatives’ plan to scrap universal free school lunches for infants in their first three years at primary school. He continued:

 

“Well, first of all, I’m apolitical. So don’t go thinking I’m ranting about one thing or the other… As far as I see it, and I believe I’m someone that’s had my hands dirty for twelve years now and I know what I’m talking about, right? It’s completely short-sighted. It’s completely short-sighted”.

 

“And I want her [Theresa May] to be a brilliant Prime Minister. I want a brilliant female Prime Minister. Fundamentally, what she’s doing is taking from teachers and taking from the kids”.

 

“If you speak to Mark Carney and the people at the highest level of economics, if you speak to Oxford Cambridge University on the modelling, the economic modelling of public health and the cost of ill health and the investment. Like, it’s the best bang for your buck you’re going to get. Don’t take from the kids. Don’t take from the teachers”.

  1. Jamie Olivier needs to learn to speak PROPER ENGLISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Teresa May should tell him she is busy MAKING GREAT BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN and tell the greedy pigf***er to rod off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Take the polls with a very large pinch of salt. The ones leading up to the 2015 General Election were all wrong. Even the BBC/ITV exit poll was incorrect as it predicted that the Tories would be ten seats short of a majority.

    The other thing to remember is that popularity does not automatically equal power. UKIP got almost 4 million votes in 2015 and only ended up with one MP. The SNP, on the other hand, got 1.5 million and 56 seats.

    The Tories’ current majority is very slim. I think the election could go either way and a lot will depend on how the individual constituencies voted in terms of Brexit. If Mrs May’s gamble pays off (with the support of UKIP who have decided not to field candidates in certain areas), then she’ll be returned with an increased majority.

    However, if the 48% hit back together with those who are fed up with Tory austerity, then I think we could be heading for a hung Parliament.

    And don’t underestimate Corbyn. The right-wing press hate him. But he does have a surprisingly large following. In fact, his Twitter account has almost three times as many followers as Theresa May’s does.

  3. Jamie Oliver should speak proper English”? People in glass houses, Rodders… The point is, it seems a pretty dam’ stupid idea to take away school lunches from the youngest schoolchildren. Sugarcoating it with a free breakfast instead and lunch for the really poor (their classmates won’t ridicule them for being that poor, of course) isn’t going to fool anyone. There are many, many, many more ways to cut costs.
    Why not try to keep Mrs May on the right track of making Britain great again by writing to her and telling her to listen to Jamie Oliver? Or perhaps you’re not allowed sharp objects like pens in your particular Antipodean abode?
