Get On With It

British politics continues to gyrate in ever decreasing circles through arcane – and somewhat irrelevant – procedures that seem to be designed to make mountains out of proverbial mole-hills.

Getting Mrs May out of office has taken far too long – even when she was clearly making a complete hash of the job. Crazily she has resigned but is still in Downing Street and looking to commit billions of our taxes to her pet projects. Someone has to say no.

Appointing a replacement has already taken weeks and could well run on until the start of the summer break – meaning nothing useful may get done before September. Why does it take weeks for Conversative party offices to vote? Even the Euro elections only take a few days.

By then we will have around eight weeks to the next EU crunch date – 31-Oct-2019 – and the opposition will be pushing for a general election – so it is quite possible that the next Prime Minister could set a record for the shortest spell in office. And the general public will still be waiting for our politicians to honour their promise of implementing our decision to leave the EU that was made back in 2016.
