PETER OBORNE: Tragedy that lays bare the challenge of uniting a divided Britain

So how do we do that? More austerity of course.

PETER OBORNE: The myth of austerity means that the Left is howling for an end to cuts that never went far enough

Love how massive spending cuts don't qualify as proper austerity, therefore meh, what is everyone complaining about?

Peter Oborne's Tory paternalism is adrift from his nationalism and homespun Thatcherite housekeeping economics. If he cares so much about social justice he'd drop them like a stone. But he'd bankrupt the country for Brexit and is happy for the poorest who then be 'living beyond their means' to pay the price.

Funnily enough lots of people pointed out that public spending and debt were soaring throughout the last 7 years with no visible return. But that wasn't part of the narrative then, was it?

A year on, and how Theresa May can turn it around: PETER OBORNE says the PM retains a granite-strong integrity and sense of public duty


Quote:
Mr Corbyn’s accusation about a divided society was also nailed as a lie. Analysis showed the UK has the third most equal income distribution in the G7 group of developed nations. In blunt terms, the gap between rich and poor has shrunk under the Conservatives.

Quote:
Also, David Cameron’s friends have still not forgotten or forgiven Mr Johnson’s brave and principled decision to campaign for Brexit.

Oborne suggests May needs a Brexit Willie Whitelaw to back her up
Quote:
The choice I prefer, however, is former Home Secretary and one-time party leader Michael Howard. Both courageous and loyal, he has consummate political skills, an intellect undimmed by age, and strongly held pro-Brexit views.
Michael 'bomb the dagos' Howard
