Opinion – Labour voters should look again at the Tory party, here for the many – Theresa May – Guardian/Observer

Theresa May’s op-ed in the Observer is a recommended read. She’s right to pitch towards the political centre ground – ‘one-nation conservatism‘ has a proud tradition going back to Disraeli. Alarmingly, the Labour Party has lurched towards the Far-Left – ‘New Labour’ under Jeremy Corbyn is totally different to ‘Old Labour’, built on compassionare socialism. To win the next general election, the Conservatives must deliver radical policies that will appeal to the political centrists. Since the crash of 2008 too many working and middle class families have suffered under austerity.

One response

  1. TM may well have taken some good PR advice to try and appeal to the Centre but the next Tory leader is most likely to be a far right extreemist, such as Johnson, so I am not sure many people will buy it. No, what we need is a new centre-left EU-loving Labour leader to get us back to stability and consenus.
