The La La Land of British politics has continued apace over the past few days. We have a Prime Minister who still doesn’t seem to have woken up to the fact that she has lost. The same can also be said about the position of the Labour leadership as well – yes they produced and extraordinary result but and I know a number of my friends won’t like me repeating this – they lost as well by quite a margin. What a state we find ourselves in.
There are different scenarios floating around amongst the talking heads, who also seem to have forgotten that they also lost any credibility, about this outcome or that outcome should we have a new election. However, if you take the last 4 UK wide elections 2 produced no overall winner and two where the margins were so small that they could equally be interpreted as being 50/50. If this is the case then is it now the case that where we are now is just about as good as it gets? Sometimes the Labour Party might be slightly ahead and then again sometimes the Conservatives? Neither really getting anything like a commanding majority either would need to drive through their more, shall we say, eye watering policies. Perhaps, just perhaps, we are seeing the overthrow of the extremes by the middle and if this is the case then I really believe that Britain will be best served.
One can only hope.
