When some of us voted to leave the EU, two and a half years ago, we had the misguided idea that it might happen. However, it seems to be taking an awfully long time. If there had been a cross-party conference at that time, and we had drawn up a comprehensive detailed plan about what we would offer to Mr Tusk and Mr Barnier, we might have had a hope. Instead, we have the debacle that is the mess we find ourselves in. So I have to ask myself, why does anybody stand as a member of Parliament? It would be easy to think that perhaps they want to help their constituents and their country. Apparently not, because the petty bickering that goes on across the chamber in the House of Commons would suggest that the best for the country is the last thing on their minds.
I heard an MP from a party suggesting that it’s ‘ridiculous’ have talks with the Opposition. “We don’t talk to the Opposition” is what he said. No, apparently they just shout at each other, and I have an idea for a new type of politics. Forget whether you’re a Tory or a Labour, but rather have MPs elected on their counselling skills, talking, communication with each other, and work together for our country, our education system, and our health service. This belongs to all of us, and for the good of all of us, we now need to forget all the bickering, nasty remarks and insults, and perhaps all pull together to improve the health of the nation. I hope that doesn’t sound too Churchillean, but the more I see and the more I hear the ridicule that’s coming out of the House of Commons, the more I think I want to run away to somewhere that isn’t marred by this petty bureaucracy. I hope that Mr Corbyn and Mrs May can sort something out, but I’m not optimistic, because I think they’re too entrenched in their beliefs instead of feeling that we need to all work together. Meanwhile, the works on the House of Commons aren’t going as well as expected. There’s a leak, and proceedings have had to be delayed whilst somebody comes in to fix it.
Does anybody think it could be PM?
