Is Theresa May gearing up to lead the EU No campaign?

Who is the most politically interesting member of David Cameron’s cabinet? There’s a good case to be made for Michael Gove. He is as intent on reforming the justice system as he was our schools. If he succeeds, it will be the biggest transformation in Britain’s approach to criminal justice since the Roy Jenkins years. The prison population will begin to fall.

Or you could pick George Osborne, who has to maintain his position as the heir apparent, reposition the Tories as the workers’ party and at the same time preside over billions of pounds’ worth of cuts. Or there’s Liz Truss and Sajid Javid, secretaries of state who have delighted Downing Street by approaching the spending review with their Free Enterprise Group radicalism.

But the most politically interesting member of the cabinet right now is Theresa May. At first, this seems an odd choice. May has already been Home Secretary for five years and has no radical second-term agenda for the department. In Downing Street and among her cabinet colleagues the view is that her leadership moment has passed. They point out that by the time the contest begins she will be in her sixties. She won’t be the only female candidate in the race either; the Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has made clear that she will stand, family issues permitting.

What makes May so interesting, though, is her resolve to reduce immigration—and where that commitment might lead her. Other Tories dismiss their party’s stated aim of bringing immigration down to tens of thousands a year as silly and unachievable, but May believes in it. She meant what she said in her conference speech about high levels of immigration making it ‘impossible to build a cohesive society’.


In her determination to get a grip on immigration, May has been uncompromising with the rest of the cabinet. She is not a clubbable sort, anyway. Small talk doesn’t come easily to her. That is why she lacks the parliamentary following that you would expect one of the holders of a great office of state to have. Her sex comes into it, too. She was first elected in 1997, when there were only 13 female Tory MPs. This, and the small size of the Tory intake which she was part of, have made it hard for her to build a network of support in the Commons.

Which goes some way to explaining the barely disguised glee of too many of her colleagues at the poor reception for her conference speech. At the parties in Manchester that night, cabinet ministers were quick to point out the bad reviews it was receiving in the papers and to joke that she hadn’t got the memo about the moderate, one-nation theme of the conference. Attendees at the donors’ drinks were struck by how Cameron praised Boris’s speech, which followed May’s, while barely mentioning hers. He then said that the government was trying to create a ‘one-nation, cohesive society’ which several of those present took as a dig at the Home Secretary.

The other reason so many cabinet colleagues were so keen to declare May’s speech a failure is Boris Johnson. Ministers are acutely aware that the Mayor of London will be offered a Cabinet job once his time at City Hall is done and, as one of them puts it: ‘We’re all a bit worried about what they’ll give him’. One Secretary of State believes that this is why Philip Hammond, the Foreign Secretary, was so privately dismissive of May’s speech. The theory is that he is worried that she will be moved to the Foreign Office while Boris goes to the Home Office. Some close to Cameron, however, believe that the job the Mayor really wants is Hammond’s, not May’s.

Several Downing Street figures have said that May’s conference speech was her ‘gearing up’ to lead the No campaign. Those close to May insist that she has not yet made up her mind on the European question, that she is genuinely waiting for the results of the renegotiation. I am informed, however, that she strongly believes that freedom of movement should be part of that renegotiation. At the moment, it is only on the table in the most limited sense — Cameron told the Commons this week that he didn’t want it to apply to either criminals or benefit shoppers. This suggests that May may be heading for the Out camp.

I also understand that her senior special adviser, Stephen Parkinson, is leaving to go and work for Vote Leave, the Out campaign. The fact that someone who has worked with her so closely for the last few years and who is so personally loyal to her should do so is telling and, perhaps, provides a clue to her current thinking on the issue. It should be remembered, however, that Parkinson is a figure in his own right. He stood for the Tories in Tyneside North in 2010.

If May were to back Out, it would be explosive. The longest-serving Home Secretary for more than 60 years would be declaring that Britain can only get immigration under control outside of the European Union. It would put immigration front and centre in the EU debate. Nigel Farage can easily be dismissed. But no one could dismiss May’s warning as the mere buzzing of a gadfly. Accusations that it was based on ignorance or nativism wouldn’t resonate either.

Now, May is not a natural Outer. She has no great Eurosceptic record and she took Britain back into the European arrest warrant. She is also a cautious politician; her appetite for political risk-taking — which was never particularly strong — was substantially diminished by the backlash to her 2002 speech warning that the Tories were seen as the ‘nasty party’. But if she did back Out, she would suddenly give herself what she has never had before: a political tribe. She would find it far easier to put together a parliamentary following, and would have a strong chance of being one of the two leadership candidates put forward by Tory MPs to the wider membership.

One of the crueller jokes in Westminster is that the most memorable thing about Theresa May is her shoes. But if she were to back Out, she would ensure that she is remembered for far more than just her length of service.

    It all sounds quite promising until you remember that Ms. May’s proposed “Extremist Banning and Disruption Orders” are an attempt to turn the UK into a police state. Also when you remember her announcement that she has no plans to curb free speech and then announces that she plans to do just that.

    • PaD

      Id leave now then if I were you as she is the next Prime Minister of this country.
      ..and getting my vote

      • kuffir

        Clearly you’re a great believer in free speech yourself then, if you think that I should leave the country just because I don’t agree with some government policy.

  • davidofkent

    I think Theresa May is gearing up for a leadership challenge. Her recent Conference speech was all noise and fury signifying nothing. She has been in charge of ‘controlling immigration’ for over five years and has failed. I desperately hope that she is part of the IN camp rather than the OUT, because she is clearly a totally under-performing person.

    • PaD

      Rubbish…Theresa May is by far the most credible person to lead this country back from the abyss.
      Her unflinching confrontation with the bully boys of the police federation highlighted a trait lacking in most other politicians…courage.
      She has found her feet as it were..and now we are witnessing her true abilities …hitherto restricted by centre/left cowardice endemic in our political system for too long regarding the most important issue..probably ever..immigration

      • kuffir

        This is the problem, time and time again. We agree strongly with one party policy, so we vote for that party. Then they come up with a truly terrible idea, like “Extremist Banning Orders”, and we have to live with it because the only alternative party is even worse. That’s why we need the Citizen’s Initiative, as proposed years ago by Douglas Carswell and Daniel Hannan, and now part of UKIP’s manifesto.

        We’ve also put up with mass immigration for decades because no mainstream party would oppose it. We simply had no choice in the matter.

        • PaD

          But not only did they not oppose mass immigration..they actually encouraged it..alongside lots of propaganda about enrichment.
          New labour absolutely were the worst..by deliberately not allowing a period of transition/monitoring regarding easter euro immigration.
          When this was discovered I naively thought this was about stockpiling future votes(a la asian immigration)..but have now come to believe it was far worse than that..it was (is) a deliberate and wilful move to disintegrate UK national identity..check out Peter Sutherlands and ‘ homogeneity’..unbelievable social engineering..and happening right now.
          ANY party that chalenges and reverses this aberration will be the next party of government

          • kuffir

            No question if she does go for EU exit following her speech on immigration that’s totally logical, and it would be a big improvement on Cameron’s no ifs no buts but we’re staying in the EU so big if and big but. It would have been a more encouraging speech if it hadn’t come with no acknowledgement that the Tory government had totally failed to deliver what they promised in 2010.

            What you’re not answering is my point about how she is undermining free speech, which surely you would agree is also an important part of UK national identity, in fact she actually said as much herself.. The hypocrisy of it..

            Politicians take far too much upon themselves, we need much more involvement from the public if we’re ever going to get better policies. Even if you vote for them, you can still criticize their policies, you know.

          • PaD

            I dont think you can say that we’re staying in the EU..It’s no secret that THE most important issue for the populace is immigration..the only pawn we have to stem the flow of migrants is withdrawal from open borders agreement..EU membership demands we adhere to open borders..its a chicken and egg situation..but in the end withdrawal from EU will be the only possible solution..immigration in present numbers can only make things worse everywhere.
            and can you provide some examples of where free speech is being curtailed. and in just what way and who is being damaged?

          • kuffir

            I’m talking about her proposal for Extremist Banning and Disruption Orders which are analyzed here:

            http://www.christian.org.uk/news/everyones-liberties-could-suffer-under-extremism-law/

          • PaD

            Until David Anderson expert EU lawyer though he may be,can offer another way of tackling extremist lectures in British educational institutions as well as islamic community locations Im taking what he says with a pinch of salt.
            There are already laws in place to protect free speech…but hate speech results in innocent people being blown to smithereens as a result..the actual charge should be conspiring to murder.

          • PaD

            Woops used the word result twice in one sentence!

          • kuffir

            Ok is this an example of hate speech in your opinion (according to the govt. document on this bill it is):

            describing Islam as a “disgusting, backward, savage, barbarian, supremacist ideology masquerading as a religion.”

            To me that is just a statement of fact, and I’ve read very similar views from an awful lot of people.

          • Mary Ann

            It’s just the vengeful god of the old testament. before the devil was invented

          • Mary Ann

            We can stop migration from the rest of the world any time we want to, but migrants are too useful to us, the only effect that leaving the EU will have is to stop white Christian migration, and stop a lot of us retiring to our place in the sun.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Why will it. You’re speaking as if we were behind an iron curtain before were were in the EU. Why will you be unable to retire in another country. Its an absolute fallacy. As long as you have a pension pot and are not expecting the state to keep you, you could probably go anywhere you wished.

          • Pioneer

            You are very seriously deluded.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            I see your point but extremism banning orders will work if extremism and all that comes with it is properly defined. At the moment that definition is far to weak. People with an genuine concern or opinion are being bundled with the same group who actively promote hate and violence. Until that is resolved you are right it does infringe our free speech.

          • kuffir

            The only definition worth talking about is extremists who incite violence, that is already illegal. All the government needs to do is enforce the existing laws, not complicate our lives with more laws. If you read about the aftermath of the Undercover Mosque program you will see not only did the police and CPS fail to prosecute real incitements, they tried to prosecute the program makers instead.

            In the Koran it says that the disbelievers are the vilest of animals. Isn’t that a bit extreme? Are you going to include that in your definition of extremist and prosecute any imam that says that the Koran is the unquestionable word of Allah?

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Exactly right. I’m mire likely to be charged with hate speech by voicing my opinions on Islam than the ones calling for people to be killed. It makes no sense.

      • davidofkent

        As I wrote, it is one thing to make a good conference speech, but an entirely different thing to achieve success in your government department. The Police Federation has quietened down thanks to their foolish behaviour over ‘plebgate’. Added to that, it is the budgetary cutting from the Chancellor that has put the Police Federation on the back foot. At the moment, Theresa May is simply attacking easy targets and its a pity that she doesn’t get on with solving this country’s big problem with illegal immigration or with deporting foreign criminals.

        • PaD

          Agreement on Theresa Mays priority right now.
          Disagree re her own govt dept.
          Govt is a many layered beast and depts while selfstanding have to be operated within a general political culture
          I sense Theresa May has come to believe that this ‘culture’ has been wrongheaded regarding immigration(she will have listened to her ekectorates increasing anxiety no doubt).
          She finds herself in exactly the right place and right time to instigate needed change Id say.

          • PaD

            As for plebgate..that preceded her right attitude to bullying police.
            Cuts to police budget darned right put rhen on the back foot..have you seen the salaries and pensions of police chiefs?

        • Mary Ann

          The government are using the deporting of foreign criminals to reduce our human rights to those that suit the Tories.

      • Mary Ann

        Immigration is part of the modern world, take away the freedom of people to come here and we will loose the freedom to go elsewhere, freedom works both ways, There are over 5 million British people living abroad, isn’t that about the same number of migrants living in Britain, the figure for Europe is about 2 million each way.

        • PaD

          Minblowing naivety..
          the 5million britons abroad are dispersed and fairly thin on the ground..around the WORLD.
          Have you been to Bradford? Or towns in Lincolnshire?

          • PaD

            I.e mindblowing

          • Mary Ann

            Along with lots of migrants from other countries, Britain is not the only country that people want to emigrate from, if it were we wouldn’t have any immigrants ourselves. Think, it works both ways. Actually my husband grew up in Melbourne alongside Germans Italians Yugoslaves Maltese and later Vietnamese and it is has the second biggest Greek population in the world after Athens. He left Australia because he got fed up with the racism against POMs

          • PaD

            Given its size Australia can absorb immigration better than UK..though their actual immigration policy is necessarily tough so those that are selected to enter the country will be deemed productive/skilled ..unlike UK that has allowed Romanian beggars Bulgarian unemployed all the flotsam n jetsam of previously poor countries…not to mention wholesale Asian immigration with its own set of dangers and difficulties(inter family marriages producing genetically deficient offspring..a burden on meagre social and health services.
            And the elephant in the room Rotherham.
            The numbers arriving have been skyhigh for years and already dire consequences are predicted…it simply must stop…and repatriation for those without visible means of self support..it is madness to think differently.

          • Mary Ann

            I don’t have a problem with foreigners, you obviously do.

          • PaD

            You must live in disneyland

          • Mary Ann

            I find it hard to understand why you believe you have to be mad not to dislike foreigners you’re excluding most of the human race.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Put your extremely wide broadbrush away. No one has said anything about zero immigration…..only you seem to be interpreting it that way.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            I have a problem with unskilled unemployable foreigners who come here as economic migrants. I.e to suckle from the state.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Absolutely spot on.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            You interpret controlling immigration as stopping immigration entirely.
            Why on earth do you think that?

        • LittleRedRidingHood

          Good God! Why do you think people will be hamstrung? If you satisfy the criteria and have your health and you bring skills the country needs you will be able to emmigrate to the UK. If you don’t have the skill or the health then you need the money to be able to support yourself…
          It works everywhere we in the world. I emigrated down under for nearly ten years and there was a stringent application process I had to go through. Why are they wrong to pick and choose who will bring most value to their society?

      • Chamber Pot

        Rubbish.

        She is clearly an incompetent. Witness the chaos over issuing passports recently

        She has no intention of bringing the Police Federation to heel.

        • KittyR

          “Witness the chaos over issuing passports recently”. You should think about the chaos May inherited from Labour when taking up her post in 2010. I worked at the Home Office during the early 2000s during the Blairite reign and can tell you it was, without doubt, the most shambolic, demotivated, appallingly run place I’ve ever worked. It can only take years to sort this type of infrastructural mess out in an organisation, it requires a shift of working culture as well as wholesale reorg of processes, procedures etc. I’m sure it’s been a bumpy ride and will be for a while.

  • thomasaikenhead

    Fascinating article and if Theresa May were to adopt a ‘NO’ approach that would make her a formidable contender to replace David Cameron.

    Clearly she is no fool to have survived so long at the Home Office and adopting a stance to resist further mass immigration and a crackdown on the illegal migrants involved would prove to be massively popular with the British electorate as well as the vast majority of Conservative grassroots supporters and UKIP voters.

    The deafening silence from all the other leading Conservative politicians on the topic of immigration, including David Cameron, shows that they are risking their positions by refusing to deal with what the voters consider to be the number one issue facing the country.

    David Cameron is fatally tainted due ti his involvement with Sarkozy to turn Libya into a failed state that is now a major source of illegal migrants to Europe and every closure of the Channel Tunnel and every instance of Operation Stack in Kent due to immigrants causing disruption undermines his position further.

    Clearly the other EU leaders are fed up with him waffling on about the UK and the EU and expect him to ‘Put up or shut up’, i.e. he has to clearly state what he wants from the EU and what needs to be changed?

    The sight of yet more illegal migrants pouring into Eastern Europe while the EU tries to bribe Turkey to stop them causes yet more concern about immigrants being imposed on the UK by the EU.

    Theresa May could not have picked a more emotive topic on which to make a stand!

    • Mary Ann

      Leave the EU and it will end the problem at Calais, the French will let them come to Britain and then they really will be our problem, why should the French help us.

      • PaD

        Thought immigration wasnt a problem? Make up your mind.
        Calais last time I looked is in France..mm let me see..thatd make Calais migrants a french problem.
        Something has gone very wrong in your wonderful EUlalaland

        • Mary Ann

          It isn’t a problem for me, but it is a problem for most of you, back to Calais, what’s to stop the French putting thousands of migrants onto the boats or trains and letting us deal with them when they arrive here, why should they continue to co-operate with us, after all their departure will make life better for the people of Calais. Most of these migrants seem to believe the British want them here, they obviously don’t read the speccy.

          • PaD

            Whats to stop the french? etc etc.
            The rules of your wonderfull lalaland has it that asylum seekers be accepted in the 1st safe country they reach,France being probably the 3rd or 4th safecountry those at Calais reached.
            France obviously doesnt want to/cant handle this quandary..to illegally process them anyway or ship em back to 1st safe country..probably poor beleagured Greece.
            NOT uk problem…though countries that DO process them give them then automatic right to free movement.
            I was like you once..a supporter of EU..That is until it dawned on me what totally imbecilic people are in charge there..

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Yes but we’ll be able to send them straight back to their point of origin….. France, considering they came from a safe country.

          • Blindsideflanker

            Why should we allow the boats to dock or trains arrive if they are carrying illegals? Just send the boats and trains back.

            You seem very defeatist.

      • LittleRedRidingHood

        It won’t. They won’t be able to get in and if they do we’ll be able to throw them stright back at France.

    • LittleRedRidingHood

      Excellent analysis.

  • Never in a month of months of sundays. May is a wet through and through.

  • Mary Ann

    I didn’t know that May had taken Britain back into the EAW, well that is one sensible thing she has done.

    • Blindsideflanker

      Having British people carted off abroad to foreign justice, without having the right to defend themselves here, is a disgrace, and I am surprised anybody who has any regard to our rights and law can think it a good thing. Perhaps you don’t.

  • Mary Ann

    Everyone keeps banging on about immigration, what about emigration, over 5 million Britons living abroad about 2 million of them in mainland Europe, Stop people coming to Britain and we will have to stop people leaving Britain, Sauce for the goose.

    • Richard Young

      How many Brits resident in Pakistan?Or Somalia.No ax to grind with these countries,but sometimes I do wonder…mmm.Another area of wonderment [sic] is the skill set of those jetting out permanently vis a vis those who would diversify us further wandering in?

      • Mary Ann

        How many Spanish and French people live in Britain? At least with the EU lazy stupid British people can go and live in mainland Europe.

        • LittleRedRidingHood

          And lazy British people will still probably be able to. The EU immigration policy is hardly robust is it!

          More to the point any country would be well within their rights to prevent lazy British people from moving there. Why should we get a free pass just because we’re members of a club?

          Your logic is warped beyond recognition.

        • Bertie

          These lazy stupid Brits you quote could go live in Spain, Fracne whether we were part of the EU or not!!

          it’s called a normal Visa process. Are you really that dense to attempt such scaremongering, for that is what you are clearly attempting to do.

          • Pioneer

            “Are you really that dense”.

            Yes, he/she/it really is.

        • Aberrant_Apostrophe

          And how would those ‘lazy, stupid British people’ support themselves when they suddenly find they aren’t automatically entitled to any benefits, as they are in the UK?

    • kuffir

      The thing is that net migration into the UK is very high, and for one thing new housing is not being built so we’re getting overcrowded. Places in France and Spain on the other hand are rapidly losing people, so they have the opposite problem. They are not going to want retirees to stop coming because those people bring work and money into their economy. I believe what most people want is for the nation states of Europe to have control over their own borders, so that migration can be controlled to suit the local situation.

      • Mary Ann

        The Birth rate in France is above ours and the birth rate in Britain and Spain are well below the replacement rate, they have a real problem in Japan with an ageing population and low birth rates, nearly the same as Spain, but Japan doesn’t allow much migration. Very low birth rates in Eastern Europe, even lower than Japan I expect that’s because the youngsters are coming here to work, and pay our pensions. Watched an interesting program the other day, world wide the birth rate is about 2 with only the poorest people having large families, but take them out of poverty and they will have less children as well.

        • LittleRedRidingHood

          Within three generations their birthrate will drop as we see now with the third generation of Pakistanis. But newcomers in poverty will be in the same position as those who arrived in the 60s. In three generations a lot of damage will have been done to our demographics

        • Oddsbods

          Why worry about low birth rates??? People are living longer and longer so the “replacement rate” is sinking too. Technology is advancing and there are fewer and fewer low skilled jobs to be had. Less people means less strain on the environment. Only poor, less advanced societies have high birth rates. Your arguments are outdated.

    • LittleRedRidingHood

      Flawed logic and a total fallacy. We will not. People leaving britain will have to apply for visas, residency etc, just like everywhere else in the world.
      There are absolutely no barriers to you moving anywhere you want unless of course you are an undesirable in which case… Tough.
      It’s not exactly rocket science is it

    • Bertie

      How does that work? Emigration is small beer compared to immigration,and you know it.
      600,000 in, 300,000 out annually.

      And leaving the EU wont STOP these Brits being able to migrate either – they’ll just have to go through normal due process.They’ll still get to retire in Southern France, Spain so stop scaremongering.

      Youll probably find that not so many will leave if far fewer are coming in!

      • Bert3000

        No free movement in Europe means no free movement. That means no retiring to Spain or France. It means millions of pensioners returning to the UK.

        We don’t get the advantages of being in the EU without being in the EU. It’s a despicable lie to pretend otherwise.

        • Bertie

          No,not at all – you are incorrect.
          There will still be retiring to Spain / France just that it will have to be done via Visa process/etc as before.

          ie Retiring expats will do what they did before “free movement”

          Stop lying. It doesn’t mean anything of the sort. There will not be a mas exodus of pensioners to the UK.

          “We don’t get the advantages of being in the EU without being in the EU. It’s a despicable lie to pretend otherwise”

          There only person lying here is YOU.

          Being able to retire in Europe is not dependent on free movement at all. How did people retire to South of France/Spain then before this “Free movement” concept was incepted??? Answer me that.

          You sir are a scaremongering charlatan.

  • slyblade

    All i get from this is Teresa May is edging her bets, putting her own political Career before the good of the country. We all know Cameron’s so called wish list which he refuses to make public will fail. As always with this political charlatan Cameron is kicking the EU can down the road.

    Cameron has promised an in/out referendum by 2017 and it could be held in October next year. Some changes he is seeking will require the EU’s governing treaty to be rewritten – such as Britain opting out of the EU’s commitment to “ever closer union” and denying tax credits to new EU migrants for four years which the EU have already squashed.

    But there is no chance of the EU approving a new blueprint by 2017. So Britain’s new deal would be added to the next treaty, likely to bring in reforms to the Eurozone. But Brussels officials say that work might only start on that in 2017 and could take until 2025 to complete. Another cause of delay is that countries such as Ireland, France and Denmark would need to approve the new treaty in a referendum. By this time Cameron will be long gone and it will be someone else’s problem to deal with.

    So Teresa May should be aware of this and her decision to delay a possible support for the leave campaign is based on pure self survival motivations. With Boris knocking on a cabinet office job her grip on her position seems even more precarious by the day.

    As a conservative (in the true sense of the word) i could not support May or any of the present cabinet. I find Cameron’s Liberal approach to the party an affront to the true values of conservatism. He would much better off in the Lib-dems party than as the conservative leader. As for May she swings in the wind, a politician without any moral or political direction only her one ambition staying in the cabinet. She will never be leader as the only women who did that job she would be constantly compared to her. May is not a patch on Thatcher and never will be. Looking like mutton dressed as lamb doesn’t help either.

      “The EU parliament can’t be held to account by UK citizen’s.”

      Well we can vote in its elections. Is that not enough holding it to account?

    Nonsense ! Theresa May has no interest in stemming uncontrolled mass immigration and is an ineffectual Home Secretary and unashamed political careerist.

    In addition am I alone in thinking that she is increasingly bearing a weird resemblance to the dishevelled Bob Geldof ?

    Theresa May knows she lost almost every battle she ever kicked off so her making the out case would constitute a system-immanent underpinning of her own decline.

    “In her determination to get a grip on immigration,……” – what utter tosh. She has no determination to get a grip on immigration, only to indulge in populist rhetoric – she is a disgrace. She ought to be put in the Lords as Lady May of Shifting Goalposts.

    With what’s going on in Europe now it’s hard to see how any sane Brit would want to stay in the EU at all anymore, it is imploding under the weight of invading hordes from Islam and beyond, marching in columns of divisional strength by the day across any border they feel like ignoring. The next Labour government will be inviting them to the UK too, to strengthen their constituency and fulfil their ideology. Get out while you can, there may not be another chance, ever.

      How many Brits do you think are ‘sane’? Sadly, most young Brits are content with kebab-food and booze, and nothing much else is on the horizion; Monday-Weekend, work, then glut and booze.

    Theresa May is a rarity in politics today, someone who seems to do what she genuinely believes is right and best for the country. The fact that she doesn’t have a little tribe of parliamentarians following her only confirms her authenticity. Cameron’s pathetically lukewarm comments when asked if he supported the position she upheld in her speech at Conference show him to be a PR man through and through. Theresa, on the other hand, doesn’t give two hoots about public or party opinion, she’s going to do what she feels is ethically right. She has the mettle to be the next Tory leader, but sadly the vapid slicksters in the parliamentary party will see to it she’s viewed as ‘past it’. Nicky Morgan doesn’t have the gravitas of a leader at all, in my opinion.

    • UncleTits

      I recall in 2010, following the election, when she instantly morphed into the Tory version of Harriet Harman after spouting conservative rhetoric during the election campaign. May is your classic career politician who says whatever she thinks will advance her career. What she does is another matter. Legislating for State-regulation of private relationships, with swivel-eyed feminist Polly Neate, was hardly a conservative thing to do. The Tories’ big mistake was to go for Cameron over Davis – someone who at least resembles a conviction politician.

  • UncleTits

    Just a small but important quibble with your headline. The question is going to be “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”. It was changed to this in order to avoid the inherent psychological bias of a yes/no question. There isn’t a “no” campaign”.

  • UncleTits

    May’s resolve to decrease immigration? Are you practising your stand-up routine? She only ever mentions it on the run up to an election or at party conferences. Her performance this summer would have been hilarious if not for the fact that ordinary Brits will suffer the consequences of her wilfully porous borders.

  • Arbitrary Handle

    I hope she doesn’t, seeing as the EU leave campaign needs to steer clear of blimpish attacks on immigration and metric measurements.
