Press Cycle 1 - New Prime Minister
#21
Prime Minister Croft has regrettably decided that an arbitrary deadline will be the defining moment of his premiership. His commitment to leave the EU without a deal is particularly bad for Wales. Two-thirds of Welsh exports go to European countries, and 200,000 of our jobs rely on frictionless trade with Europe. No Briton ever voted for a no-deal Brexit and yet the Prime Minister is intent to force this rush policy upon us. We must remain within the customs union and maintain access to the single market for our nation's continued economic vitality.

While it was a nice change to hear the new Prime Minister even mention Wales in his first speech outside 10 Downing Street, I must admit that he showed an utter disregard for how dynamic our nation's economy is. Prime Minister Croft's insistence on taking Wales out of the European Union without a deal will not only put our farmers at risk, but will also dampen the prospects of the 1.5 million Welsh who are employed. If he really wanted to help all British people create their own success stories, he would not be running headlong towards no deal.

As a working class man of the northeast, I feel it is my duty to explain the reason that a man like myself from the north of this country should look to throw in with this government and become a portion of this cabinet.  First, I wake up every morning asking what I can do for the people of Stockton South.  I want to know about what the people of my constituency needs. My second thought is to the people of the UK. 
I worry that people are now worried more about the EU than the people that send them to parliament to fight for them.  I am worried that people are worried more about leaving the EU than how to govern during and after the move.  The people of the Stockton South and the people of the UK deserve a government that looks to help them now and for always.  
I think that what frightens me most is that there are people in government that sees our history and kingdom having started when we entered the EU.  We are the people who are fighters and they seem to think that our people are afraid for the fight.  They forget that we are the country that saw the world and saved the world.  What scares me is that those people see the sun setting on the UK and they want the people to see the sun set on the UK.  I guarantee you that as long as I, Stockton South, and the UK has breath in our bodies; there is no storm that we can not weather.  I serve in a government, a Prime Minister, and a Crown that will always place us first, and will insure that we shall always rule the wave. Thank you

This Prime Minister has gone out of his way to subvert parliament. From taking new policy to the Press pool before telling parliament, to repealing the Fixed-Term Parliament act so he can call an election whenever he pleases it is clear William Croft thinks himself a King above the law, not a servant to the people. And now as no-deal Brexit approaches an option nearly no citizen in Britain outside of his Puppet Masters at the Brexit Party want, I can in all good conscience say no William Croft will not be a good Prime Minister.

William Croft is the right Prime Minister for this moment because he treats important matters with the urgency they require. Brexit was voted for by the people years ago, and it has yet to be implemented. I've noticed others saying Mr. Croft only cares about Brexit and not about other important issues, which is simply just not true. Thanks to Parliament's failure to deliver on the people's will and get Brexit done, we are now at a stage where implementing Brexit must be treated as a priority, which is exactly what Mr. Croft is doing. I appreciate Mr. Croft's sense of urgency to get Brexit done efficiently and quickly so he can tackle the other issues that are affecting the British people. The British people should be confident in a government's commitment to get Brexit done, because for the first time since the referendum, we have a Prime Minister who believes in Brexit.

William Croft continues to prove day by day that he is temperamentally unsuited to the position of Prime Minister, that he is out of his depth, and lacks the maturity for high office. Whether it is shutting down or avoiding scrutiny from the press, willfully misleading the public about no deal, or using extremely charged language akin to a war rather than adult politics - every day he is undermining the great office he now holds. Even his own Deputy Prime Minister is very clearly looking on his behaviour with discomfort If William Croft wants to be a serious Prime Minister and get a deal with the EU that the country and Parliament can unite around, then he needs to grow up, cut the rhetoric, and get to work. It's not too late.

What the new Prime Minister has shown in his short time at the reigns of the Conservative Party is that he feels in no way constrained by his party's manifesto and, consequently, the mandate given to him by the British public. What's more is that he has shown himself to be completely unprepared for his new role. Perhaps the most concerning aspect of Mr. Croft's new leadership is his absolute disregard for Parliament, evidenced in both his decision to have his Home Secretary announce imperative meetings with the Irish Taoiseach in the Press before informing Parliament, and in his bid to repeal the Fixed Terms Parliament Act. The Prime Minister has demonstrated that he believes that his government is above the will of Parliament, above the will of the people, and that he will stop at nothing in the advancement of his ideological crusade.

Mr. Croft was, by his own admission, an "enthusiastic backer" of Theresa May's leadership bid in 2016 and would go on to serve as a Minister of State in the Home Office while hundreds of British-born people were being wrongfully detained and deported as a result of Theresa May's barbaric "hostile environment policy." While Mr. Croft was securing her election to the leadership of the Conservative Party and forging and enforcing Home Office policy, the Home Office was involved in a "systemic failure when it comes to detaining individuals and depriving them of their liberty." [1] This is the man that the Conservative Party have just given the keys of Number 10 Downing Street to.

I would be amused by the Prime Minister's antics if it weren't such a serious matter to play political games with. Take his summoning the entire national press to 10 Downing Street and commandeering their attention last night, for example. There was nothing in that speech the Prime Minister couldn't say in Parliament, and very little that he hadn't said in his first speech in that same place last week. It was hard to watch without a mix of feelings containing, among others, déja vu and irritation at the Prime Minister's presidential and unaccountable behaviour. If this is the sort of unelected Prime Minister that the Conservative Party has saddled Britain with, it is indeed a very good thing that Parliament has slammed its fist and said: no Will, you won't.

I feel the most difficult thing in a democracy is that politicians forget what and whom they are. The people speak clearly and we do not listen. The people vote and we do not want to see it. The people cry out and we do not feel it. Our pm understands that his obligation is to the people. His 10 Downing Street speech was to talk to the people who brought us all here.

I want to first say that negotiation is one of the things that presses the people’s government daily. If this was a government that wanted no deal would we be making deals.

What we need is for everyone to step back and not think about who is right, but what is right for the people of the U.K.
