THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY
THERESA MAY - MP for Maindenhead
The Prime Minister reshuffled her cabinet following the resignations of International Development Secretary Priti Patel and Defence Minister Sir Michael Fallon.
Mrs May remained prime minister despite losing her majority in the 8 June general election, which she had called seeking a mandate for Brexit. She became the UK's second female prime minister in 2016 following Maggie Thatcher, after David Cameron resigned in the wake of the EU referendum result. She had previously been home secretary for six years.
At the moment the UK is deeply in debt with other serious societal issues that Teresa's Government is having difficulty with, such as the lack of affordable housing and the import of cheap labour to keep our economy afloat when the present (buy to let) economics' policies do not appear to be equitable - hence are unsustainable. The problem being that successive Labour and Conservative governments have sold us into slavery - while the electorate blinked - or is that: were hoodwinked.
We wonder then how the Conservatives hope to dig us out of this mess, the result of what appears to be years of mismanagement at the top based on continuous borrowing, that any economist should have known would end in tears.
Who then is ultimately responsible. It is Her Majesty the Queen of England as the Head of State? Or is it the electorate for being so stupid as to vote for Labour and Conservative party's year after year. Or, is it the party/parties that made election promises that they knew deep down that they could not keep.
