The team that have been responsible for the fiasco over the ‘dementia tax’ are also going to negotiate ‘Brexit‘. Theresa May’s campaign has been simplistic, repeatedly echoing the same bland language and asking for the public to trust her judgement with Brexit. Now May is looking dishonest.
May still looks set to win but I wouldn’t bet on the size of her majority.
From the moment that May called the election, it was obvious that she risked a major wobble.
When May’s reelected, we can expect a few wobbles in the financial markets because she’ll constantly be firefighting.
The best hope is a major cabinet reshuffle after the election, promoting those with sound political and negotiating skills. May’s presidential style of leadership is weakening the UK.
