The Mercer Era

Matthew Steeples suggests Johnny Mercer could be the Conservative Party’s saviour

 

Last Thursday, Johnny Mercer, Tory MP for Plymouth Moor View, penned a comment piece for the Evening Standard.

 

In it, this former army officer and campaigner for the better treatment of veterans asked the Conservative Party to “inspire a nation” rather than just “manage their party.” This unusually modest ex-Baptist is not your typical politician. He has fought the Taliban and now, in speaking out about the death of what I’d call the “realistic right,” shows himself as the antithesis of the likes of the “poison dwarf” Mark Francois and the “blabbering bigmouth” Peter Bone.

 

Whilst it may appear that such people have currently taken control of what is thought of as the “nasty party,” Mercer rightly suggests it is now time for the Tories to seize the future and reset the agenda. He calls for better candidates, changes to the party’s leadership and the adoption of a structure more appealing to millennials.

 

A Remainer at heart, Mercer also identifies other key points. In lambasting the lack of help fort the homeless and the crisis in the NHS, this sensible gent shows himself to be a genuinely compassionate Consvervative. He should, I’d suggest, be the party’s next leader and I urge him to toss his hat into the ring.
