Opinion – Theresa May hugely popular among voters, who see her as in touch with ‘ordinary people’, poll finds | The Independent -John Gelmini

This is an interesting post from Dr Alf about Theresa May and probably the “indescribably boring”(Private Eye’s name for the Independent),are right this time around.

Of course political honeymoon periods have a short shelf life and once Mrs May starts to axe winter fuel allowances, free bus passes and vacillates on immigration the “honeymoon and understanding of the concerns of ordinary people” will come to an abrupt end.

Tackling executive pay, rewards for non performance, rewards for failure and the revolving door would extend that honeymoon but alienate the Corporate-ocracy who are already bristling at Dr Liam Fox’s accurate description of them as lazy, overly complacent golfers lacking the get up and go to sell things and pioneer export opportunities.

Tackling worker productivity, or lack of it, would take someone of Margaret Thatcher’s toughness and clarity of vision but so far I do not see that sort of Messianic political will and remain to be convinced in the spirit of the American State of Missouri “Show me”.
