The debate yesterday between Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak only shows how bad the things are in the Conservative Party. Yes, the party has been inept and out of bound towards the troubles it has created. The Tories are the party who has reigned the United Kingdom for over 10 years and still inevitably not able to fix anything substantial. Alas, that is the main issue here.
The two leaders, the Foreign Secretary and former Chancellor has experience. They have both been in office and served in the Her Majesties Government. Still, by every day they seem like a nightmare that one of them is taking over for Boris Johnson. Not that Boris set the bar high either. To the contrary he depleted it and abolished the bar completely. In such a manner that codes of conduct or the Nolan Principal was sort of erased.
As an outsider… I have no faith in either of them. They are not honest actors or leaders, which I could trust or see as fit. One of these two will become the Head of State by default. Just because the Tories currently hold the most seats in Parliament and won the last election. Not because any of these two fought for the voters or any significant cause. No, they just the most cunning within the ruling party.
There is nothing that looks sincere or real about it. They are both willing to act and say things in stark contrast to the enacted laws, the budgets they have passed and the total package of legislation, which they have vouched for over the years. So, when these speaks of the rising poverty, the rising inflation and the burden of ordinary people. Well, these two was part of the party that made things worse and haven’t sorted things out.
Instead these two are the likes that blames France for troubles for citizens and lorries with goods to cross to Calais from Dover. They wouldn’t take any responsibility for supporting or standing behind the Brexit agreement. Neither would they boldly say that the Brexit is the reason for a drastic downturn, which would have happen with or without COVID-19. The Ukraine conflict is just amplifying the financial burdens, but it was already bleak. That was something they both knew and cannot run away from.
So, when they are trying to outsmart and sound like they will fix things. Well, as long as they are honouring the Brexit. There will be little to no changes, but as a Third Country things will only get harder. The realities of lack of movement to Europe and blocking Europeans from direct short-term visits. Will only hurt more industries and make it less accessible. Why go to rainy London and have to apply in advance? When you can just go to sunny Barcelona or be in Rome. There is no need to feel the fog or try to get a Paddington teddy-bear then.
Therefore, the Tories are in a pickle. A pickle they have created for themselves and everyone has to live through. No matter who becomes the captain there is no easy way out. Especially, if the fatigue and the lack of trust continues. Not like the fellow aspirants oozes of that or shows any significant flair of sorts. No, they are just the run-of-the-mill careerist politicians. Who are willing to say anything to be elected and follow wherever the wind takes them.
It hasn’t been a soft journey since David Cameron resigned. From there it’s been hurricanes and earthquakes. Still, the party has moved from the messy Theresa May to the scandalous Boris Johnson. Whatever Truss or Sunak delivers. Well, they haven’t the need to do much to look better. However, they have no time to prove their qualities either. Because, things aren’t getting better, but instead worse. That’s all on their own making and with factors they couldn’t foresee.
Now, these two leaders has to prove for the electorate in the Tory party. That they are the person to bring it forward and continues the reign. Nevertheless, it just seems hopeless. These two will only show what is wrong with the party and why it got here. They will not solve anything or make it better. No, that’s only possible with a General Election and new Members of Parliament. Because, right now…
It is grim and these two aren’t it. I cannot see them achieving or making a difference. They will only serve the elite and their needs. While adding more burdens on the working class and their disadvantaged financial situation. Just like the Tories a moment ago allowed companies under industrial action to hire people while others are striking. Taking away the rights and helping the companies instead. That’s the sort of individuals we are speaking of here. The sort of gallivanting for the rich and speaking softly to the poor. This is what they do and I don’t get how the public got tricked by this.
These two will only show the sinister side of the Tories. Which has been on full display of late. They will not try to change or see any reasons too. These two will only continue the reckless legacies and the abysmal legislations. The ones that tearing people apart and leaving no hope for the future. While either blaming the victims of it or the EU. Peace.
