May election

If the journalist Philip Webster’s sources are correct, there is an undeclared war going on within the Tory Party between Dave Cameron and Theresa May.

139 days before the General Election I’ll come out and say that unless there is a political earthquake that leaves Alex Salmond as Prime Minister (an offer he would decline, almost certainly) my choice for Number Ten would be Cameron, but only on the basis that he is the least of several evils.

Who is the greatest? Mrs May comes very near the top of my list, shaded only by Mr and Mrs Balls. (Take your pick.) I never saw anything to like about our only woman Prime Minister, but there was a hell of a lot to admire. But Mrs May, or Thatcher Lite as I will call her from now on, she doesn’t score a point  in either column.

    Q, why is it that in politics today, the lesser of two evils seems to prevail?.. Has the electorate become so passive only “vanilla” will do? Oh well. We will survive, as usual.

    Because in Britain we are in a period of mediocrity, unseen since the Sixties and early Seventies. I reckon that 85/90% of the UK voting electorate are passive by nature in that they vote as they have always done, but this time around there is UKIP to shake them up.
