Quote of the day 17th August 2019

"Those who’ve said privately they could never face making Jeremy Corbyn prime minister should explain how this wheeze is supposed to work.

Are you banking on him not getting a majority after a confidence vote then someone else steps in? And he goes along with that? 

Get real. 

Or do you genuinely want to make him caretaker prime minister but it’s ok because it’s only for a few weeks? 

Except it’s not is it. 

For the 2nd referendum plan to work you have to hope he wins the general election and stays as PM.

And even if you convince yourself it’s worth giving this gaslighting racist regime the keys to Number 10 to stop Brexit, you really expect these serial liar hard left Brexiteers to honour their 2nd referendum pledge as they smash up the country? 

For God’s sake, wake up."

(John Woodcock, Independent MP for Barrow and Furness, who resigned from Labour because he could not stomach supporting Jeremy Corbyn as PM, explains why he still can't stomach the idea as he shreds the proposal for a "government of national unity" headed by Jeremy Corbyn.

There are many things on which I don't agree with John Woodcock but he is both right and brave on this point - a "caretaker" government headed by Jeremy Corbyn would be highly dangerous for Britain, more so than a "no deal" Brexit, and cannot be assumed to be temporary.)

The country 'England' certainly feels safe in Boris's hands

John Woodcock did not specify which country he was talking about, but I am fairly sure he meant the interests of Britain, not just England.

I did refer to Britain.
