Back to it

August is traditionally the month where local government sort of goes on holiday and thus in September perhaps it’s that back to school feeling after a summer holiday or perhaps having a break means you naturally have a bit more time to ponder the months ahead.

Nationally the new Prime Minister is certainly settling in well and her polling seems to indicate that her Brexit means Brexit stance and her personal mission to address inequality in our society, is going down well with people. Equally, nationally I think many of us on the Conservative side of things watch in amusement at the Labour Party; its lacklustre Leader who seems unable to spot empty unreserved seats on trains, let alone that he is unelectable as a Prime Minister as only the hard left takes him seriously as a potential Leader of our Country. But hang on you say he won’t be there much longer with Leadership ballot papers in the post as the right of the Labour Party has a new champion to slay the left wing beast, oh dear not exactly dynamic is he. If Corbyn remains you can see the real prospect of Labour dividing into two and that will of course through up a local dimension to the mix, the local Labour party, old school hard left or Blairites? One side just wants to spend the County Council reserves until all is gone and the other well……they just want to spend all the county reserves until it’s gone, so from my perspective not much between them.

But of course who knows who they are for or against as locally Labour are keeping their head down desperately hedging their bets ahead of any split that might come. Before Theresa May became PM I openly backed her to win, it’s called standing up and being counted. I do believe you have to make decisions in politics, but hey not always the right ones, just look at my backing of the Remain campaign! But you have to stand up for what you believe in, so come on Sandy Martin and David Elsmere let’s hear from you as to whom you back. Jane Basham and I agree on almost nothing, save you should stand up and be counted, she has declared for Corbyn, oh well.

Interesting few months ahead.
