On Theresa May’s resignation

Theresa May’s announced resignation is long overdue but welcome. One can feel sorry for her on a personal level, but this was a job she was not up for and that she made a complete mess of. Even in her resignation speech, her “accomplishments” consisted of failures (on Brexit), accomplishments of her predecessor (on the economy) and non-accomplishments (like setting up government bureaucratic oversight of certain areas). Her talk of “compromise” shows even now she hasn’t learned the errors of her failed premiership.

It is now time for a new Conservative Prime Minister to deliver Brexit, focus on building a truly Global Britain connected to the allies in the CANZUK, Commonwealth, and elsewhere, and to revive the institution of the Conservative party to defeat the danger of socialism in the Labour party. Under May, as Joel Rodrigues pointed out in his article, she let the EU humiliate Britain. Under May, the Conservative party became social democratic and abandoned all pretense of support for economic and personal liberty – to the detriment of the party- it went from polling at 50% at the start of the 2017 General Election, to single digits and destroyed by the revitalised Nigel Farage and his Brexit Party in the EU elections.

The new Conservative leader and Prime Minister MUST be a Brexiteer and MUST be willing to take the country out of the EU without a withdrawal treaty if necessary. The union can’t be broken up and Global Britain, and the trade deals and alliances that will come with it, must happen. Boris Johnson could be that person, but we wait to see what the candidates say in the leadership election before the Daily Globe endorses anyone.

We personally wish you the best Mrs. May, but history will not remember your job as PM kindly.
