Press Cycle 1 - New Prime Minister
#11
Croft is showing his true colours in Parliament. He has absolutely no respect for the democratic processes that have guided our politics for centuries, and this attempt to railroad legislation through Parliament because he feels like it is an absolute affront to his claims of taking back control of our democracy. If this is to become the hallmark of William Croft as Prime Minister then he will quickly make it clear to the British people that he is a liar and a crook.

Never before have I seen such outrage over a politician following through and doing what they promised. The Prime Minister has a clear mandate to deliver precisely on what the British people voted. The opposition parties are approaching a crucial juncture on this Brexit journey. If they choose to oppose everything they see, without due consideration, there is a real chance they could get caught on the wrong side of history when we reflect on this period in years to come.

On the other hand, if they choose to work with the Government, providing their own perspectives we can work together to level-up every corner of the United Kingdom, once again unlocking our potential as a country. It is only through collaboration, cooperation through change that we have ever achieved anything as a country - why would we stop now?

The Liberal leader forgets that his party didn't need a mandate to help bring fix term parliament act as part of coalition government yet somehow thinks we need one to remove it. Rank hypocrisy really and act of Parliament led than 10 years old hardly counts as a norm.

*upon being told of Drykov's comments*

What? Is he...really?

*after having them repeated to him*

Well, Drykov just doesn't have the facts right. It was a manifesto commitment that both parties accepted as part of the coalition agreement. There is no manifesto mandate for Croft to do what he's doing - much less to ram it through without scrutiny.

I wish the Prime Minister best of luck but he needs to get this fact really fast, he has three options; May's Deal, a Clean Brexit and Remain. He needs to stop wasting time in wishful thinking such as renegotiation or making UK the largest economy and get on with the agenda really fast. He has to start no deal preparations and make sure that is the only priority. So far, all I have seen is mixed messaging that as clear as mud.

The new Prime Minister has started his time in No10 by displaying a unique combination of scattergun politics and politburo control-freakery. His first legislative priority is to hand himself the power to call an election whenever he wants. And his second seems to be a pointless motion that says the UK will leave the EU on the 29th of March - something that is already in law, and so hardly needs restating. And if anyone in his own party dares defy him we now hear that he will withdraw their membership of the Conservative Party - despite the fact that he kept his when he voted against leaving the EU earlier this year. What we're witnessing is a man completely unprepared and unsuited to be Prime Minister - has has no plan, no mandate, and no clue.

The Tories like to talk a big game, saying "it is only through collaboration, cooperation through change that we have ever achieved anything as a country," but they need to see that change to start that collaboration starts at home. It's been less than a DAY that Parliament has been considering the Prime Minister's agenda and we've heard of failed attempts to try to win over Labour MPs that support the Leave camp AND attempts to threaten his own party members into blindly supporting allowing him to determine Brexit on his own. In less than 24 hours Croft has become as desperate to get supporters and help as he is to crash this country out of the EU. It's clear he is already in over his head, and sadly the UK will be who pays for it.

I have an idea for Eleanor Nerina and everyone else saying Mr. Croft doesn't have a mandate. Let's have an election. Brexit Party is more than ready to have an election right now. If one does want to complain about lack of mandates, one should also be willing to support an opportunity for a mandate. Labour Party rejected an election a couple of nights ago on QT without reservations. Either Eleanor Nerina and Labour should get on with the election or they should cut their talk about lack of mandates.

The Prime Minister has a momentous task ahead of him in terms of delivering a Brexit that works for our country in a way and manner which is persistent with the levels of good government our country has seen over the last seven years. We must not though fall complacent both as a party and a parliament in the way that we attempt to deliver Brexit. We must, at every step, question and ask if what we are doing is in the best interests of our nation. I hope, in my role as a Member of Parliament, that I am able to do that - and the Prime Minister will accommodate that view.

"We must at every step question and ask if what we are doing is in the best interests of our nation" says a member of the Government that is seeking to limit debate on important Brexit legislation to a single day and that has yet to show up to explain why it is so important that Parliament completely step out of the way. This is exactly how the new PM expects to govern. Having gotten his position by virtue of the fact that less than 90,000 Tories voted for him, he seeks to lead this county through half-clever soundbites and snazzy graphics posted on social media. And when push comes to shove, when this country needs substance and leadership, the new PM retreats in, sends his minions to mutter something about how hard he's working, and purposefully seeks to leave this country in the dark.

We need to know what's going on. And even other Conservatives admit that Parliament and their party must be focused on the best interests of the United Kingdom when it comes to Brexit and so many other issues. But it has been clear from day 0 that Prime Minister Croft can't be bothered to share that basic notion.
