    When all is said and done her future and the immediate future of the Conservative Party will be defined by how she tackles the rising fuel bills.

    Unless you are a die hard voter loyal to a party come what may it all boils down to £ in the pocket.

    peiple understand simple economics but too many people fail to understand that money spent has to be recouped.

    Ask anyone if more money should be spent on emergency services the answer is an unequivocal yes. Ask those same people if they will accept a 2pc rise in their income tax and the answer isn’t so unequivocal.

    We all know the Brexit debate and for the Tories to hold firm with that they need to offer something that most in the EU are doing.

    The money can actually come without raising taxes but will be met with resistance wherever it is attempted. Defence would be my option but I suspect that’s not a popular one.

    Will she have the strength and the ability? I doubt it very much. I think they’re on the brink of imploding as they’ve done before. Her opportunity has almost been handed to her on a plate and could be her Falklands moment.

    Yours very doubtingly. BBE

    Ha, ha, this is EVERY politician in the US, the "not quite as shit as Donald Trump" platform...

    Or the "really, anything has got to be better than Donald Trump" platform...

    The good news is that she should be able to meet expectations.

    If you keep your expectations tiny,
    You'll go through life without being so whiny...
