The Job To Be Done

The Prime Minister we need is someone who will buckle down to the hard work, grasp the detail and get on with the job accepting that this is one of the biggest challenges in history.

Cameron, the shape shifter who has resigned but intends to stick around a while is not such a man and no is longer fit to stay in post and pick his own time of going.

It is like asking a mechanic who cannot deal with the windscreen wipers to change the engine.  Can someone in the Tory Party rise to the task?

If there is no senior or highly placed person in the Tory Party to force the issue it is not good enough to let Cameron stay and fiddle about with long weekends, holidays abroad and in between determine the future for his friends and financial backers?

It is my view that Her Majesty in the present situation would be right and constitutionally justified to dismiss him forthwith.

I did suggest that if the vote were to go to Leave the reaction of Cameron and his cabal would be to delay, compromise and try to adopt a scorched earth policy where the object was damage, the thinking  spite and what they would then hand over would be a far more difficult situation than that of the present.

Boris Garden Bridge Johnson, another Bullingdon shape shifter, cannot be trusted and more to the point nobody he has to negotiate with will be able to neither trust him nor have any certainty that what he is doing is motivated by anything other than narrow self interest.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Leader of the Opposition ought to take the opportunity to gather some credibility and respect by telling Cameron to get out now.

The difficulty is that his kind of Left thinking has a preference for chaos and disaster.  Who is there on the Opposition Benches who can take a lead on this?

Cameron should hand over immediately to a lead group consisting, perhaps, of Gove, Hammond, May, Fallon, Mundell, Cairns, Villiers to manage the job in the interim and he should do it now.  What was it said by Leo Amery in The House of Commons on 7th May 1940?


"We are fighting to-day for our life, for our liberty, for our all; we cannot go on being led as we are. I have quoted certain words of Oliver Cromwell. I will quote certain other words.

I do it with great reluctance, because I am speaking of those who are old friends and associates of mine, but they are words which, I think, are applicable to the present situation.

This is what Cromwell said to the Long Parliament when he thought it was no longer fit to conduct the affairs of the nation: You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go."


Cameron must go and now.

  1. I wonder if anyone has the stomach for it. The opposition will be relentless and red herrings will pop up all over the place.
