EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew SteeplesOur editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

Britain Needs You!

Matthew Steeples suggests a new political movement is required in Britain and it is required urgently

 

Britain is ready for a new political movement that emanates what has occurred with Emmanuel Macron in France. That might sound radical but it isn’t given ‘left’ and ‘right’ have again risen in the UK and whilst Theresa May’s Tories have become a deadpan disaster, Jeremy Corbyn’s radical Labour looks increasingly capable of winning. That would be a disaster and the only way of stopping it is to form a new party that actually represents the (currently) ‘silent but secretly sick of the stagnant muddle we’re currently in’ majority.

 

Britain needs to realise that ‘Cuddly Corbyn’s’ offer of sweets now and sweets tomorrow will not fix the problems ‘Terrible Theresa’ has created and that the Liberal Democrats are incapable of delivering real solutions due to their ever decreasing relevance. What is required is a new party and what we need is one that brings together everyone from Anna Soubry to Chuka Umunna. It will be a party that that harnesses the political nous of Blair but not his toxicity; it will bring in grandees like Ken Clarke and Paddy Ashdown and it’ll stand opposed to the hate filled mantras that the likes of UKIP have dominated British politics with for too long.

 

Grouping such as Open Britain seem all very well on the surface, but their ability to deliver change is clear. They achieve zilch and even Gina Miller’s Best for Britain – an organisation I lauded on its inception – seems to have garnered mixed results during last week’s General Election. Aside from failing to unseat hard Brexiteer Kate Hoey in Vauxhall, that grouping’s support for Momentum Labour Emma Dent Coad in Kensington was not something true centrists could ever have agreed with.

 

Sensible sorts now need to ditch their personal allegiances for the good of our nation. We need change and we need a political party that can deliver what Britain truly requires.

  1. F**king rubbish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Britain needs HARD BREXIT and TERESA’S TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mrs May will deliveer what your country wants and requires ——- it’s not time for Chukka, its time for chukka out the thieving immigrants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Rod – you do realise that many of us voted for the likes of Emma Dent Coad because of the vile views of right wingers like you…

    2. I quite agree Matthew, but nobody has come up with anything suitable as yet. Now for Rod’s comment, as usual stupid and uninformed, the NHS has recruitment problems for places usually filled by immigrants. Said immigrants also seem to have behaved very bravely in the tower fire, and our Muslim brothers expressing solidarity with British views too. While something should be done with criminal immigrants I would suggest we need to support the rest with their contributions to our society. I think that May has lost out with her vision of Brexit, and more than a few wanted to stop her chasing it. The sooner that loser departs the better we will be.

      1. When the Ugandan Asians came here with barely the clothes they stood up in they just got on with it. It’s a lesson later immigrants could take to heart.
        I didn’t know I had Muslim bruvvers. However, I know I had fellow citizens.

  2. Idealistic but who would start it? Thus far only Blair has raised his ugly head and even he’s not dared toss his tosspot head into the fray actually. It’s all been rumour-rumour and no action there and I cannot see Mrs Miller wanting to put her money into a political party either.

  3. Like I said before, Bring on the revolution. We need to start with a clean slate, and stop trying to be bloody politically dam correct all the time.

  4. I think you’ll have much more chance of success if you re-invent the Liberal Democrats who haven’t been the same since the ghastly Social Democratic Party merged with them in the 80s. The Liberals have a wonderful, long history and have the foundation necessary for building an acceptable third party capable of becoming one of the two main parties.

    1. Yes, I thought Jeremy Thorpe an excellent fellow. Not sure Rinka the dog would agree.
      And, ok, Charlie Kennedy liked a drop or two or three but so what.
      Margaret, I somehow feel you haven’t a clue!

    2. Margaret….are you serious…?
      The Liberal Party…Jeremy Thorpe on trial for murder….Charlie Kennedy….constantly drunk. Sorry, not the types I wish to lead this country. You must be very naive!

  5. Macron got elected on 15% of the vote: in other words, Matthew, he got in by default.
    Knowing France as I do the chances of him turning around France are minimal.
    Better men than Macron have tried and failed
