Let’s assume that Theresa May loses the Conservative majority on June 8th. I would imagine such an event would be followed by her resignation as Party leader. Who would be in the running for Party leader, and what direction should the Party take? One potential leader who should never be taken seriously again is Boris Johnson, who, as Foreign Secretary, has sold out every principle he ever espoused, and become a stooge for the US Deep State. He’s even suggesting Britain invades Syria without a Parliamentary vote, using false flag chemical weapons games as the justification. He wants to out-Blair Blair.
There is one potential candidate, I believe, who is hated by the media and the insiders, who as a politician seems to understand the way to go. He does what he believes to be right and ignores media attacks against him, which are constant (a sure sign of not being a sell-out). Against Corbyn he would look good, and be able to articulate a coherent alternative, without the stench of corruption which hangs around Theresa May (her husband and all). That person is Liam Fox.
Fox’s removal from the Defence brief seems like a pre-planned political game to me. Cameron knew Fox was his main potential challenger and decided to take him out, giving him an impossible task, working with the corruption of the MOD, and then accusing him of corruption for trying to bypass the corrupt department and talk directly to suppliers of military hardware. Cameron was well capable of such a plan. There was never any specific accusation, just the full force of media innuendo.
Boris Johnson is of the Cameron era, only tolerated as he was a potential enemy of Cameron, who knew all about Cameron’s past. As they say, keep your enemies close. With Cameron gone, Boris Johnson looks lost, and is lost. He should be gone from any consideration as leader. We urgently need a grown up political leader who can think and articulate.
Liam Fox has to be high on the list for potential leaders who could pull the party back together, and drive out others who will look to bring the UK down. Is this the moment for Fox? He’s my choice, if May falls, for what it’s worth. He went to Rodrigo Duterte and made a joint statement with him looking to the post-Brexit world, knowing he would get a another media hammering for doing so. I like the guy.

Dismay over Liam Fox’s claim of ‘shared values’ with Duterte’s brutal regime

Liam Fox’s declaration of “shared values” with Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines leader whose war on drugs has killed 7,000 people, has prompted dismay about the government’s approach to human rights as it seeks post-Brexit trade deals.
The international trade secretary, who will also visit Malaysia and Indonesia on his trip, said in an article published in local media that he wanted Britain to build a stronger relationship with the Philippines based on “a foundation of shared values and shared interests”.
As Fox visited the Philippines, Theresa May was in Saudi Arabia as part of a wider government effort to shore up the UK’s trading position after Brexit. Speaking to the BBC, she refused to criticise the government’s bombardment of Yemen, which is estimated to have killed more than 10,000 civilians and displaced more than 3 million people.
In the Philippines, Fox insisted that Brexit would broaden the UK’s outlook, arguing that the UK would emerge “a stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking nation”.
A Whitehall source told the Guardian that Fox had raised concerns during Monday’s Philippines visit and meeting with Duterte, whose nickname is “the Punisher”. They said the minister made clear that questions over human rights and corruption would act as a barrier to future trade opportunities.
As Theresa May flew into Saudi Arabia, also as part of the government’s “Global Britain” initiative, Philip Hammond was in India to promote British business, while Boris Johnson met with the German foreign secretary, Sigmar Gabriel, in London.
Senior figures in Westminster alarmed by the trips to Saudi and the Philippines urged caution in the government’s drive to build closer economic links further afield.
