I can't go that far. I have never voted Tory but unfortunately there is a rump of fairly normal people who held their nose and voted Johnson because they just did not trust Corbyn.What a mess.
If you voted Tory you are an imbecile and let the country down.
I agree with that, but why did Labour make this the choice? I mean he was easy meat for the Tory-backing media we have in this country. Plus there really were genuine concerns that a large part of the middle ground had with him. It was just dumb.And people who believed everything the press said about him. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t like him, but the media went into overdrive on him.
Aaaaaaannnnddd ... Sunak promptly dashes those hopes. Braverman still able to pull his strings despite being sacked.As much as I don't think the man lives up to his name often enough, I do appreciate Cleverly today clearly separating himself from the Braverman / Patel hard-right approach to Home Office policy / rhetoric. The proof will be in what happens over the coming months, but it does sound like (for now) there will be a softening of approach with Cleverly.
