Conservative MPs must choose next week to send just two candidates to the membership in the country for them to vote on. It now looks pretty certain that those two candidates will be Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom. So here is a useful guide on the differences between the two candidates:
- Is a pro remainer who will give us EU lite at best.
- Will not invoke article 50 until next year, if at all.
- Sees leaving the EU as a threat to Great Britain, which it isn’t.
- Britain will still be open to mass immigration, she has presided over this for the last 6 years.
- Continued Islamification of Britain.
- Will cause a mass exodus of Conservative Party members to UKIP.
- May has no business experience (just Central Banking) to help Britain prosper.
- Is a control freak who as Home Secretary has sought to control us and remove our rights.
- Tends to be authoritarian, lecturing people on she thinks that they want.
- Is part of the establishment. The status quo holding Britain back.
- Strongly in favour of the HS2 white elephant vanity project.
- Very weak on very many policy areas including foreign affairs and economics.
- Is a committed Brexiteer who is an expert on the EU. Founded and led the Fresh Start Project.
- Will invoke Article 50 as soon as possible.
- Sees leaving the EU as an opportunity for Great Britain, which it is.
- Britain will be open to trade with the world. Not to mass immigration.
- Andrea’s strong Christianity will help stop Islam taking over.
- The Conservatives under Andrea will attract lots of both UKIP and Labour voters.
- Andrea has massive top end business experience, she knows how to make Britain prosper.
- Andrea has strong social values. Founding two child charities. The Northampton, then the UK Parent Infant Partnerships.
- Inclusive, listens to and engages with people.
- Took on the establishment bravely when she was on the Treasury Select Committee. Osborne hated this.
- Opposes the HS2 white elephant vanity project.
- Very strong on almost every policy area.
It is worth noting that Leadsom has more government experience than both Tony Blair and David Cameron had when they became Prime Minister. Also she has more real world, business and economic experience and knowledge than any post war British Prime Minister.
So there you are. Which do you prefer?
All the Remainers and their backers, who were rejected by the British people, are backing May, which tells you a lot. And with two female candidates for Prime Minister memories of Margaret Thatcher are being invoked. Most people don’t know the TRUTH about our ex prime minister but an earlier article here covers that (click highlighted text for link).
