Last quote by Andrew Rawnsley

Her claim that she will lead the Conservatives into the next election is taken seriously by no one in her party. Leaders like to think that they can choose their exit, but their exit is almost always decided for them. Even apparent exceptions conform to the rule. I often hear it said that Harold Wilson was the last British prime minister to step down from Number 10 at a time of his own volition.feedback

Andrew Rawnsley has most recently been quoted in an article called Can Labour’s change of course over Brexit change Britain’s fate?. Andrew Rawnsley said, “The party has realised that most of its supporters don’t want to crash out of Europe. Now to persuade some Tories. There are two kind of battles in politics: the noisy ones and the stealthy ones. The high-decibel clashes grab all the attention because they generate visible mayhem and buckets of gore. So eyes have been on the Conservatives over the summer weeks as the Brexit battlefield has resounded to the clang of Tories swinging war hammers at other Tories.”.

Andrew Rawnsley quotes

May 06 2017

She only gets to look unbeatable because of the paucity of the competition from an utterly inept Labour leadership. For Labour MPs, this is the scene in the jeopardy movie when the ground begins to shake. They know that those blood-chilling tremors are the footsteps of something monstrous making its approach. The screams of the local councillors that have just been devoured by the beast are a warning to Labour parliamentary candidates that it is their turn next. The devastation to one-time Labour strongholds, from south Wales to the East Midlands to the Tees Valley, tells them to be afraid, to be very afraid. By the time we get to the final reel, we know that the casualties will be many.feedback

Apr 22 2017 - British elections 2017

They should make the issue not who should be prime minister, but whether the Tories can be trusted with a landslide. Election time and the fibbin’ is easy. The first fat and juicy one came from Theresa May when she stood outside Number 10 and declared that it was the “national interest” that compelled her to trigger the snap election that she had many times sworn that she would not call because an early poll was not in the “national interest”.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - Brexit

There may be a way to an agreement with the EU, but it won’t be achieved by trying to bluff. One way of looking at the Brexit negotiation is as a game of high stakes poker. Theresa “Queen of Vegas” May and her sidekick, David “Old Knuckleduster” Davis will sit on one side of a green baize table. They will arrange their faces to be utterly inscrutable; they will stitch cards to chests; they will leave Boris at home for fear that he might accidentally blurt out the content of Britain’s hand. Across from them will sit Michel “Hardball” Barnier, the chief negotiator for the commission, and Donald “Goodbye” Tusk, representing the 27 countries who will be remaining within the EU once Britain has taken its leave.feedback

Mar 11 2017

The desperate blame game over the budget is a bad sign when the perilous business of Brexit is about to begin. It is one of the more endearing eccentricities of British government that the two most powerful people in the cabinet live next door to each other. Even more bizarrely, they also live on top of each other, since the chancellor’s flat is located above Number 10 and the prime minister’s living quarters are above Number 11.feedback
