The first result of the election for leader of the Conservative Party of England...lately UK are now in. As expected Theresa May has won the first round hands down. She is a quiet supporter of the Remainders. However, a surprise result is that Andrea Leadsom a Brexiteer, came second, whilst Michael Gove another (humble) Brexiteer and subject of a slur in the Sunday Entrope over his gossip and drinking habits, came a very poor third. The other two at the bottom, have withdrawn. So the struggle is between Theresa May, Andrea Leadsom and Michael Gove.
It will be interesting to see who wins the next round. The trouble with Theresa May is that whilst she may make a very good Prime Minister, she is nevertheless a supporter of the Remainders, whilst Andrea Leadsom is a supporter of the Brexiteers, and the people of the UK voted by 52% to 48% for Brexit. We may very well see some kind of compromise occur when it comes to the Conservative Party Conference in September.
There are also a number of constitutional legal challenges being raised over the question of the results of the Referendum being valid or binding on the government. There are also calls developing for a general election...A large demonstration took place in London for Remainder...It is all getting very interesting.
The main opposition, the Labour Party is still paralysed, with the huge majority of M.P.s and trade union leaderships who support the Remainders, in opposition to the Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn and the rank and file of the Labour Party and of course, their Labour constituent, who support Brexit.
There is a lot of talk of Labour M.P.s splitting away from the Labour Party and forming a party of their own, or joining another party, but this will mean for them, a step into the unknown at the next election. With no Labour Party machine, weak as it is, to back them, they could well finish up out in the cold and looking for proper jobs at lower wages...Perhaps even become immigrants emigrating to the European Union looking for work...but my imagination is running away with me...:-).
