Advantage May

21st April 2017, 06:45 Hrs

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May could either become the next Margaret Thatcher or go down in flames. Everything now depends on the results of the surprise elections that her government called on June 8. The cabinet decision was endorsed by Parliament with an overwhelming majority. And Britain finds itself hurtling towards an election mid-way through the term of the government. The reasons, as explained by May is that while her government is working hard towards hammering the best deal with the European Union, Westminster (political parties) is doing everything to sabotage it. The Tories enjoy a very slim majority and May has asked the people of Britain, who voted to sever ties with the EU to strengthen her hand so that she can drive a hard bargain. At this point of time, the Conservative Party enjoys a very high rating while Labour, led by the eccentric Jeremy Corbin, is in disarray. Victory with a majority of 50 or more will not only cement May’s name in the history books it will also give her larger room to manoeuvre. So far, she has made all the right moves. She has the courage of conviction to take hard decisions and is betting her future and that of the Conservatives on her ability to deliver a Brexit pact that will make Britain stronger. Unless Corbin does something extraordinary, this election is going to go the Conservative way.
