Re: Conservative Leadership Contest 2024

Surprise that people remember the negatives more than the positives. Not really. The press focus on the mistakes and it generates more heat than doing well.

Most observant people just remember it for the horror show that it was. The majority of the press in fact went out of their way to deflect from the constant corruption and mistakes.

If you seized the opportunities then yes. Those opportunities being to supply PPE, no due diligence or experience required except having Ministerial connections. And to discretely supply alcohol to No 10 during lockdown.

Yes mistakes were made but with the likes of Ferguson and Witty predicting that the population would be dropping like flies in their millions it's not surprising that a measure of panic ensued.

As a Tory voter since 2010 until the last election (which I didn’t vote Tory), you might expect me to agree with this post.

But no, furlough was their own making. You can’t shut down the economy and then expect credit for compensating those that you have banned from earning.

They shouldn’t have locked down, they shouldn’t have crippled the country or put us under house arrest to begin with.

Their response to covid, and their antics during should, and did, attract nothing but disdain.

In their 14 yrs they have achieved nothing of note, they had a mandate after 2019 to revolutionise the UK’s economy and relationship with the world, and they royally screwed it up.

Their legacy is to give us Kier…fffin…..Starmer, We’ll done.
