    No I’m a centrist.

    But I don’t mind May; she has a really difficult task and I don’t think she is doing too bad a job given her plan. However it would not have been my plan, I would have done things differently.

    alas she was handed the poison chalice by camoron and I mean moron, what fool offers its plebs a referendum of any sort right in the middle of the worst recession since the 70s, making no plans if it went south as it did, I hang well left of centre and i am a member of momentum, I didn't vote leave but fot the life of me could not give a good reason to stay.

    This is hardly the worst recession since the 70’s! What about the early 90s? I wouldn’t even agree that the uk is in recession, in fact the economy is growing, so evidently we are not.

    If successive governments over decades had actively listened to the voice of the British people regarding EU integration we would not be in this situation. The problem has been caused through decades of big-firm commercial pressure, EU economic manoeuvring and political expediency over democratic voice.

    Her task would be a bit easier were it not for the likes of Boris F Johnson (I leave the F to your imagination) snapping at her heels. Since this is the general forum and therefore supposedly apolitical I will say only this; dodgy necklaces.

    I will fight shy of saying that her policies are a load of baubles, since in any case I concur that she's making quite a good fist of an all but impossible situation.

    I was thinking a chain around her neck with a very large milestone attached to it.

    9 years of austerity is recession in my books, the 70s was really bad but u are probably to young to remember I was made redundant twice in 73 & 77 lost my first house, our winter of discontent I had to move back in with my parents no light, no heating no money, I had to go fiddling working for cash, the lump it was called, no tax or stamp but singing on every week it was horrendous well at least for the WORKING CLASS.

    We haven’t had “9 years of austerity”. What does that even mean other than a phrase you’ve heard on the TV?

    The rest of your post about the 70’s is primarily about the disasterous economics of the Wilson and Callahan governments and of course Heath who was next to useless, and lied to the British people taking us into the early EU.

    It was horrendous; the 3 day (working) week, strike after strike as the unions brought the country to its economic knees, power cuts, and did you ever drive a British Leyland car? Absolute crap manufacturing.
