Theresa May’s dilemma: Do what is right or what the right wing wants?

Queen Theresa is powerless. For far too long she had to do things she knew were wrong but it had been her dream to become PM so she wouldn’t let principles get in the way of that. And that’s the problem with her and her party in one.

Once upon a time the Tories were the business party and did what was best for the economy, ruthlessly ignoring the little man and his concerns for the long term goal of job creation through cutting red tape and the welfare state. Whatever you think about this, it was a plan.

Their failed attempt to increase NIC and the subsequent U-turn showed us that nothing is sacred anymore in their pursuit to hold on to power.

Businesses are not impressed. See:

Opinion – Big business leaders press Theresa May to rethink hard Brexit | Politics | The Guardian

and the original article:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jun/17/business-pressure-may-hard-soft-brexit-eu-single-market

“Businesses are clearly sounding the alarm on the impact that constraints on immigration could have on the economy.”

The shifting political landscape has led some Remain-supporting business figures to speak out. Rose said: “I believe [the election] this was a proxy re-referendum. I think it was the public’s way to demonstrate that all was not all as they wanted. Is this an opportunity to have a rethink?

“I think [the single market and customs union] should still be on the table. Who is going to tell the man on the Clapham omnibus, and when will they tell him, that he is not going to be better off?”

Bilimoria said: “We have a prime minister who has zero credibility – with the country, with her party and in parliament. She was the driving force in pandering to the Brexiters in her party who were in the driving seat.”

So why is TM clinging on to her Hard Brexit? Becasue of power!

Opinion – Secret plot to oust Theresa May as ministers threaten ‘stalking horse’ if PM fails to deliver ‘hard’ Brexit – Telegraph

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/17/secret-plot-oust-theresa-may-ministers-threaten-stalking-horse/

“What we would do is to put up a candidate to run against her, a stalking horse. You can imagine who would do it. It would be a rerun of the Margaret Thatcher scenario, with Anthony Meyer.

“If she weakened on Brexit, the world would fall in… all hell would break loose.”

  1. She will not be around long enough to decide on how to resolve this dilemma,her choice will be the manner of her departure from Downing street and the manner and route of her journey back to Maidenhead,car via the M4,train out of London or helicopter.
    Beyond that ,politically she really is a “Dead woman walking”.
