The Tories must give no thought to a General Election and instead focus on reforms after Brexit

ANYBODY in the Tory Party even considering a June election needs their head examined.

The public is sick to the back teeth of politicians seemingly unable to carry out the task set for them twice over in a Referendum and a General Election: to take us out of the European Union, with a good deal or a managed clean break.

For the first time in months, Parliament last week took a giant step in that direction – and the Prime Minister and the Cabinet should be focussed on delivering the changes to the backstop that the Commons demanded.

That should be the only thing on anybody’s mind in Westminster.

Once we are free of the EU’s shackles, the priority must be to supercharge the British economy, with a new Chancellor and a reinvigorated party setting a course for Britain to become ever more competitive on the global stage.

The Party can start on genuine reform of the Health Service, and allow British businesses to be at the forefront of new technology.

The Tories must show real progress on housing and welfare reform.

Nobody in the Government should imagine they’ll romp to victory in an election just because they’re up against Jeremy Corbyn’s Venezuela-flavoured socialism.
That didn’t work last time, and it might well fail again.

The Tories shouldn’t give a single thought to an election this summer.

But they must start building a track record that can win a General Election in the years to come.

We back Britain

NO doubt about it, Nissan’s decision not to build the X-Trail in Sunderland is a blow to UK Plc.

But it is not, as inexplicably smug Remainers are crowing, entirely due to Brexit.

It’s as much about Brits increasingly not buying diesel cars as it is about our future trading relationships with the Continent.

And the joy with which some on the left are greeting the news is perverse. Do they not want Britain to succeed?

Do they not see that their bizarre, condescending attitude is EXACTLY why they lost in 2016?

Suicide crisis

THE rocketing suicide rate amongst teenagers is nothing short of a national crisis.

And the solution MUST involve the social media firms who are profiting from youngsters’ suffering.

They have been given quite enough warning that they are not doing enough to protect vulnerable kids.

They have said for years that they just need a bit more time, and that they’d fix the problem themselves.

Well, they’ve failed.

Government has no choice but to step in – and it needs a concerted effort from the Education, Health and Culture Departments.

One more tragic death is one too many.
