The Independent reports that the newspaper run by ex-Conservative Chancellor George Osborne has launched a scathing attack on Theresa May’s election campaign, claiming it is based on “the most disastrous manifesto in recent history”.
For weeks now, I have monitored the Conservative Party Twitter feed with increasing distaste. It’s built May into the hero and the other political leaders as incompetents – she alone is white and above the perceived nastiness of the party. The messages were shrill and simplistic, providing no evidence as to how or why questions. The manifesto was ignored and U-turns were simple expediences. Now the campaign is again trying to destroy Jeremy Corbyn.
Of course, George Osborne is biassed. But he’s also completely right.
I have been a Conservative Party supporter all my life but I’m completely disgusted with Theresa May’s leadership. Most importantly, I fear that she’ll precipitate a train crash for the UK in Brexit negotiations with the EU.
I’m still undecided whether to abstain from voting. I’d be a hypocrite to vote for May. But perhaps if I vote for Conservative her backbench will oust her? For me, the Conservative Party has become an omni-shambles.
