The middle ground

What an odd place we are in at the moment in the UK and especially UK politics.

The impasse over Brexit seems to have dragged on for far too long and thanks to the BBC and it’s brethren in the mainstream media most people are either bored silly or ready to ’strike up arms’ if things don’t go their way. I read today that one particular commentator thinks that if the PM cannot get the ‘deal’ through Parliament, she may call another General Election – the last one did not go well for her or the Conservatives as I recall! The trouble is, that even though the polls are showing that Labour are quite well ‘behind’, that may well prove wrong, as it has done before.

The worst possible scenario, however, is that if a Brexit ‘deal’ is achieved, but in conjunction with somehow Jeremy Corbyn and his marxist cronies gaining power. Can you imagine what that would be like in a post-Brexit world. If Brexit is to go ahead the one thing we need to is be more entrepreneurial as a nation and focus much more on business and enterprise – something that is rather alien to the Labour Party in its current form!

Everywhere you look, for example on social media, there are people crying out for the ‘middle ground’ and for a Party (new or existing) to represent the core values, needs and priorities of the majority, in a country where ‘minorities rule’ on virtually every level. Of course, this is unlikely to be achieved until a leader is identified who is able to bring this about. It is very difficult to identify such an individual at present!

What is it about celebrities and particularly those that are wealthy, ‘past their sell-by date’ and largely talentless, that makes them think that they should share their opinions on Brexit with a very gullible public. You don’t see or hear from them for years and suddenly there they are!

Well the ‘clock is ticking’ much faster than it has on Brexit, and even if the PM manages to get a deal that the EU are ok with, I cannot see her getting it through Parliament. Heaven help us then if she does ‘go to the country’.
