As they huddle together at the Tory party conference next week the party will be surrounded, not just by marauding Left-wing yobs and slavering political commentators but, more menacingly, by a disgruntled and jaundiced electorate who are looking for actions, not 'all-things-to-all-people' platitudes such as "we must look after the 'just managing'". The chances of anything even approaching 'a game-saver' programme passing the pursed lips of Mrs. May is exceedingly tiny. Anyone who spent an entire election campaign endlessly spouting "Brexit means Brexit" when it became ever more clear that the actualité was, and still is, that Brexit means whatever 'Junck the Drunk' decides it means, cannot be trusted. The millions who voted for Brexit are not amused!
As the Tories face the ludicrous, pie in the sky promises of 'Jezza' and his fanatical 'comintern' which, I am ashamed to say the GBP (Great British Public) are swallowing whole, it is vital that some concrete plans are unveiled which can be put into action immediately Parliament re-assembles. Perhaps the most urgent is housing. House-builders are sitting on huge swathes of undeveloped land happy to watch the value of it increase. Then there are the local authorities who lack the guts to upset locals by granting permission for building, or allowing the builders to produce only 5-bedroom, detached houses which look 'awfully smart ' but which are way beyond the means of those most desperate to become home-owners. It cannot be beyond the wit of even Tory ministers to devise ways of putting on 'the squeeze'. And, of course, there are the zillions of empty acres owned either by HMG or by local authorities. Get a grip, Mrs. May, just do it - and do it now - and then you have five years to reap the reward.
