Isaac Ross smells the stench of Tory decline. The Government has an apologetic posture in the communication of its policies and beliefs. It needs a fresh leader to challenge a resurgence Labour. Jacob Rees-Mogg is the man for the job.
The Labour Party showed its extreme left credentials at this year’s conference in Brighton. Their policy proposals now include extending their plans for control of an individual’s property to include their right to get their hands on our organs, says Rory Broomfield.
Peter Divey believes that if the Conservatives act fast and bring in the correct talents they can deliver Brexit, preserve their reputation for economic competence, and prevent Jeremy Corbyn from gaining the keys to No.10.
With Labour rejecting its existing electoral base, pursing instead the once apathetic youth vote, the party will be forced to advance on a vehemently pro-European footing, and in doing so lay the foundations for Britain’s re-entry into the European Union, says Peter Divey.
Philip Hammond would be wise to release the constraints on public spending slightly, but too much risks conceding the argument to a Corbyn-led Labour party that increasing public debt does not matter, argues Tom Pridham.
Corbyn and Starmer are deluded if they think the EU is going to roll over, play dead and allow the current customs arrangements to remain while at the same time relinquishing political and other control over us. Theresa’s our only hope, says Neil Jopson.
The Guardian’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. It castigates Brexit supporters, claiming they are stupid, ignorant and ill-informed, all the while pedalling the most feeble, unsubstantiated twaddle for why Britain should remain in the European Union, says Bruce Newsome.
Hector Drummond believes Jeremy Corbyn remains the greatest asset for the Tories' at the next election. He believes the near Marxist policies pursued by the Labour leader and his shadow cabinet will repulse the moderate Left into Tory hands.
To help remedy political disillusionment the Conservative Party needs a new leader. It should learn from the Labour Party – whose party members elect their leader, and who is consequently more in touch with what the people want than what the elite claim they want, Bruce Newsome argues.
Bruce Newsome believes Jeremy Corbyn’s rise offers many lessons, including to small ‘c’ conservatives who can study his rise and recognise the opportunity to consolidate their position by offering Trump style populism without Trump's contradictions.
