Letter: Let’s Get Our Priorities Right

In response to: Guildford’s MP Rejects Calls to Resign As a Tory Saying ‘I Am a Conservative to My Bones’

Things have changed since 2016 when voters were promised a bright and beautiful future by a man who decided to vote leave by playing eeny, meeny, miny, mo.

Let’s get real. Inflation is at 9.1 per cent, wages have stagnated and the people we clapped during the pandemic are being offered derisory pay increases. Fuel prices are beyond belief and foodbanks, now in their thousands, have new clients who have to choose whether to heat or eat, even though they are in employment.

There are shortages of people to do essential services, which there weren’t in 2016.

Now we are awaiting a replacement PM. There are 10 candidates (and counting), men and women who think they could do a better job.

There has been no mention, so far, of rebuilding relations with our nearest neighbours. Most of them (who?) were complicit in supporting breaking international law, in promoting removal of human rights and slagging off the judiciary when they disagree with them.

Corruption spoilt the good work done during the Covid pandemic and it looks like no holds were barred when awarding contracts to cronies.

The support for Ukraine is right but what a mess this government has made of the refugee scheme.

What a record.

The benchmark seems to be Mrs Thatcher but she was PM in a different era and, much as I disliked her, she was at least honest and tried to do her best for the UK.

I would hope we could go into the future arm in arm with our neighbours in peace.

    I find it difficult to work out what this strange letter is trying to say.

    If I can interpret it, it seems to be trying once again to overturn the clear vote of the English (with help from the Welsh and British also) to escape from the hated EU.

    The removal of Boris at last gives us a chance to get the Brexit that we voted for. To do that we must get a proper Brexiteer for PM. Boris never had his heart in it.

    When Stuart Barnes voted for Brexit, what did he have in mind? What is a proper Brexit? Perhaps he could provide a list with five clear points?

      All those arguments were made more than six years ago. Why keep demanding they be repeated?
