|If people can’t tell what the media script is yet, they need to wake up. |
Leadsom is being pushed forward for the purpose of folding in front of Theresa May, so that REMAIN wins the leadership, and not LEAVE.
The media knows the script and is in support.
The only genuine LEAVE candidate going is Liam Fox.
Leadsom is a well prepared deception, Mrs Smug presented here in Satanic regalia.
UKIP must be ready to launch a final assault on the Conservative bastion and drive out this party of treachery.
There is only small voice, and it’s not IDS who’s fallen for the trick, along with Owen Paterson and other supposedly eurosceptic MPs.
They’re not bright enough to know what the real game of thrones is all about.
Like Boris they will be thrown to the winds.
Today’s report from Roger Helmer.
Andrea Leadsom emerges as main challenger to May
The Telegraph front page headline is the emergence of Andrea Leadsom as key challenger to Theresa May for the Tory leadership. IDS is backing her, and she is expected to announce the support of thirty Conservative MPs next week. Meantime it reports fury with Gove in the Tory shires, incensed at the back-stabbing of Boris.
The man who wields the dagger never wears the crown: This sounds so like Shakespeare – but perhaps originates more prosaically with Gavin Esler. Oh well. More recent. Slightly less distinguished. But a quote applied first to Boris, and now equally appropriate to the latest knife wielder, Boris’s own assassin, Michael Gove. And just as support bled away from Boris, so now it seems to be melting away from Michael. He insists he didn’t want to be Prime Minister. Now he finds that no one else much wants him in the job either.
When I read that Andrea Leadsom is now ahead of Gove and running second to Theresa May, I wondered if it was amongst MPs, or Tory Party members. Neither. It’s with thebookies – usually the most accurate forecasters. She is also storming ahead in social media (although maybe I mostly follow people who are likely to support Andrea).
Perhaps a two-woman race in the end? Dull, grey, last-decade Theresa, or sharp, tough, experienced, articulate, committed, clean-hands, no-baggage Andrea? Tough choice.
May ahead? Certainly the press have Theresa May in a cakewalk to Number Ten. The Mail: “MAYMENTUM” (though it notes that Andrea Leadsom is ahead of Michael Gove) And the Mail also accords her the whole of Page five on “Theresa’s Tory values”. The “i”: “May heads for No. 10”.
