Teresa May offering sweeties

composite
L/H side – Guardian 29/9/17

Oooowww . . . she husks (she’s been taught to Husk) on seeing the EU treats bag being slowly edged away from her – “if I offer them some sweeties, maybe?”

The sweetie she has in mind is “maintain security co-operation with the eu”.

She keeps just missing the target doesn’t she?  Conservatives locked in their bubble of themselves, London-centric, big-business-friendly, money, money, money – never life, life, life.

So – if the eu doesn’t feel like listening to more of the self-deluded drivel from the Conservatives, we’ll stop co-operating with security?

What! Really?

Teresa May – so careful to sound just a bit like Corbyn

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.
