What do they really think

Post  katertaif on Fri 9 Oct - 14:13

A few days ago, Theresa May made a speech to thunderous applause, stating quite categorically that immigration was in fact bad for Britain.

If this is so, then why has this government been trumpeting for the last 5 years, and Labour for 13 years before that to the effect that Immigration was wonderful for Britain. If it is now so bad, why have they agreed to take in at least another 20,000, and will I believe take yet more. That doesn't make sense.

I believe that we have arrived at the stage where a British politician cannot be trusted to tell the truth on anything. There is another possible reason, which I find very cynical. Cameron has announced that he will not fight another election as a candidate for Prime Minister. It was mentioned after her speech that there may be some jockeying for position for the job.

The country is facing massive problems on all fronts. All they seem to be able to do effectively is cut the budget for everything. For politicians to be starting to put forward their - in effect applications for the job when there are so many urgent problems to be overcome; terrorism for one, unemployment for another, is worse than cynical. To use something as contentious as this to help advance their own career to me shows that person to be unfit to hold the office they are after.

It was a bid to be the next PM...not a good start really to show you're a 2 faced liar even before a nomination.

ETA...all just my humble opinion of course

I agree Angelina, all the way. She is quite obviously far more self serving than country serving. Absolutely unfit to be in the cabinet, or even an MP at all, let alone the de facto ruler of a country

Looking at the selection of members we have elected to the Commons, we are struggling to find an upright, honest or even a barely trustworthy leader whose primary aim would be to protect and serve the electorate and not pursue his/her own agenda.

The nearest politician to a real non self-gratifying representative possessing knowledge of life's problems is Dennis Skinner who has never presented as a glib, smooth talking expenses cheat and a liar. Sadly, he is now in his 80s anyway.

Whatever happened to integrity and National pride in political life....

I agree with you Angelina in that showing themselves to be two faced (42aced as my late Mother was fond of saying) would not normally be an asset to the organisation you want to lead. The trouble is, with our present bunch of hopefuls, has beens, and never wazzers. they are all as bad as each other. I think the only honest one is Dennis Skinner. Unfortunately, while he may be honest, I can't agree with his politics. In any event the present party system is an excellent one (for them)It gives a veneer of democracy, something we badly need, and gives he impression that the power is in our hands, which is rubbish. Whatever colour rosette they wear, scratch them, and they are the same under the surface
