Brexit Part XXVIII: May's wobble

The closure of the difference between the polls of the Conservatives and Labour has caused great consternation to those who thought it would be a landslide victory. However, the reason is very simple. May has tried to follow the path of Blair and Cameron in occupying the centre ground when the vast majority of the electorate requires a move to the right with the associated wealth creation policies. As May’s policies have failed to resonate, her own personal style has come under close scrutiny and her dictatorial headmistress image worked against her popularity, especially with women. What has also happened is that May, with her reputation of a 'safe pair of hands', has been exposed as a prime minister who lacks the vision required at this critical juncture in Britain’s path. Resorting to the slogan of needing to get behind May for Brexit to be successful is not a strong enough message, especially as she voted to remain.

The cure? May has to take the Conservatives to the right and make wealth creation and defence core strategies of her campaign, before the election. The further to the right policies are moved, the greater will be the majority by which she wins. Whatever happens, the Labour Party and Jeremery Corbyn are unelectable with policies that will not resonate with the electorate, so May will win on June 8th. However, the big question remains as to by how much of a majority? Despite the feeling that May is under pressure, we would estimate that the margin of her success will be greater than 70 for the Conservatives.
