By TruePublica Editor: Winston Churchill famously said in 1940, a time of the Battle of Britain, that ‘If the British Empire and its Commonwealth lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, this was their finest hour.‘ Without any doubt, the Tory party can now claim for its entire existence, that right now, this has been their worst. Their party and more importantly the country is more divided than ever. Even the middle ground on Brexit has now completely collapsed, according to a new POLITICO-Hanbury poll – leading to voters so fed up that they would rather risk either revoking Article 50 or pursuing a no-deal Brexit. Both will be disastrous for a cohesive society in the years ahead.
In the background, away from the headlines of Brexit, Johnson, Trump and oil tankers in Iran – all of which are crisis upon crisis, the crisis of daily life continues in the sixth-largest economy in the world where the rich get richer and the poor are made to pay the price.
