So Teresa May then?
A mixture of good and bad.
The ‘good’ if you can call it that, being such comments as “Under my leadership, the Conservative party will put itself – completely, absolutely, unequivocally – at the service of working people.” Not so good the continuation of – Privatise through the backdoor – policies such as ‘free’ schools, academies, et al.
It hasn’t been suggested yet, so I thought I’d wade-in here – you don’t think, I mean, it’s not possible is it – that such a Monster reformer looms somewhere in the background, in Opposition, that the Tories just HAD to manoeuvre this ever so slightly softer version of their usual true blue stance, as a foil against such a threat?
The Cons can reasonably argue that the public might well, after Brexit, not have the appetite for yet more shocks, so, ‘steady-as-SHE-goes’ – with just enough wiggle room to feel someone might be a bit on their side, is less of a leap of faith than a full-blown political system upheaval?
Definition of the word: manoeuvre
carefully guide or manipulate (someone or something) in order to achieve an end.
“they were manoeuvring him into betraying his friend”
synonyms: intrigue, plot, scheme, plan, lay plans, conspire, pull strings;
And what on earth, WHO on earth could be such a threat as to necessitate such manoeuvres?
Ah yes, Jeremy Corbyn.
