As a one-nation conservative, I support Theresa May’s initiatives. Much of my career was in continental Europe and I am very familiar with wider representation on corporate boards. By comparison, boards of major corporations in the UK and the US are composed of two groups, executive directors who typically support the chief executive and non-executives. Non-executives are from a narrow group, supported by financial institutions and frequently have a series of interlocking directorships.

Theresa May will widen the appeal of the Conservative Party, which will heighten their chances of re-election – this is especially so with the Labour Party fighting for its future with its own leadership context now that Angela Eagle is formally challenging for the leadership.

Meanwhile, Andrea Neadsom, the other Tory candidate continues to be embroiled in controversy and is seen increasingly as divisive, inexperienced and hasty.

I sense that Theresa May needs to reach out to some top Brexit campaigners and be ready to include them prominently in her government. In return, they must endorse May publicly for the benefit of the Tory membership.

  1. Dr Alf,s prognosis is correct and the Conservatives will win the next General Election as long as Brexit is negotiated successfully and Theresa May carries out her promises to the letter. Leading Brexiteers must work with her to make this all work not try and cause trouble with a view to getting her to fail so that they can take over if things go wrong and the media must report fairly and accurately for once.
