We have a new PM but one with a small majority whose right flank already feel aggrieved ( when do they not ).I didn’t want to bang on but there is one reality unfolding that I foresaw ( on this forum) that I would like those who object to the EUJ on dreamy Marxist grounds to acknowledge
This is form todays Telegraph

... an implicit threat to turn Britain into a low-tax, loosely regulated competitor on the EU’s doorstep might concentrate minds on striking a deal……….
The logic of this was always clear, if we were not to benefit from membership of the single market then we would not be able to afford to forego the advantages of being out of it . Already Brexit has cost 8 years of austerity, a further £250 bn of liquidity to keep sterling afloat growth slowing and a loss of consumer confidence that threatens recession.
If we end up outside the single market, and that seems likely, then the catastrophe of losing City Jobs advanced compliance dependent business to the EU will unleash a new age of poverty.
We cannot, as a country stay in that state .The hard right, have always wanted Brexit to bring about an ultra Thactherite revolution and there will be no other way to survive .
You can expect corporation tax slashed employment legislation shredded regulations burnt and the public sector the subject of a brutal attack . Banking and Hedge funds will have to be free to roam the world like a pack of unregulated sharks , there will be little alternative.
This, of course was what the right always wanted and now when there is less and less than can be done to stop it the admission is becoming open
How were so many people duped ? Well I did my best….. I did try. All that can be done now is to refuse to cooperate and ensure the voice of the Nation, as it wakes up tom the great con, is loud. Otherwise the loudest voice will that of Iain Duncan Smith John Redwood and all those looking forward to lucrative Directorships from their grateful allies ( especially those who funded the Leave campaign with their billions. )

Ms May says she wants to brin the country together , but these oft repeated words are cheap. She is there as the best way of selling the nexty stage of the great con .

How can something recent cause something in the past ? Another recession, that'll be the third since the 80's if my memory serves me correct.

Yes, I too would like to publicly thank PN for his unstinting efforts. Without his assistance I would never have been able to find my way through the myriad of questions I had bubbling away in my head. Thank you.

Just because you do not like PN, do you not think he may be right?
Time to be vigilant, not distracted, surely?

Well this dreamy Marxist agrees with him entirely. I do think however that there's the possibility that PM May might dupe the Brexiteers with a fudged deal. Independence in name only. Mrs Merkel is a pragmatist.

The first time I sat up and took notice of Theresa May was when she was on the Andrew Marr show immediately after the Paris bombings. I really felt she had a safe pair of hands.
