Re: Where are the Conservatives heading?

Theresa May DITCHES her plans to take Britain out of European Convention of Human Rights.

BACKTRACKING Theresa May has already ditched her plans to take Britain out of the European Convention of Human Rights after announcing she is running to become the next Prime Minister.

The Home Secretary’s surprise statement comes just one month after she called for Britain to leave the controversial convention.

Last month she said: “The ECHR can bind the hands of Parliament, adds nothing to our prosperity, makes us less secure by preventing the deportation of dangerous foreign nationals, and does nothing to change the attitudes of governments like Russia’s when it comes to human rights."

But during her speech yesterday, the MP abandoned her stance adding there was not parliamentary will for the move.

The Tory made two surprise moves during her speech to kick start her Number 10 campaign as she sought to unite the divided Tory party.

Flanked by cabinet colleagues Chris Grayling and Justine Greening, Mrs May said that she would ditch George Osborne’s austerity policies as well as revealing her human rights about-turn.

Re: Where are the Conservatives heading?

It's will have to be one of the Scottish nominees, you English only ever succeed at anything when you have a good Scotsman to lead you. This has been proved countless times in the past, so it's no use arguing the point.

Inheritance tax Edit
Following her appointment, it was discovered that she had placed her shares in a buy-to-let property company, which she had started with her husband in 2003, into trusts for the benefit of her children. This is a move that is commonly used to avoid inheritance tax. She also took advantage of offshore banking arrangements for the property company in an apparent contradiction to George Osborne’s attempts to crack down on tax avoidance.[14] A spokesperson for Leadsom said: “This is a normal corporate situation and all tax that is due is being paid. None of the loans for the properties are based offshore”.

Donations from family firm Edit
There was further criticism when it was revealed that she had received a series of donations totalling £70,000 from a firm based in London but owned by her Guernsey-based brother-in-law, Peter de Putron, via a holding company in the British Virgin Islands tax haven.[15] Leadsom’s husband Ben is a director of the firm which made the donations, which were used to pay the salaries of staff in Leadsom’s Westminster office after her election as MP; the firm has also made donations of £816,000 to the Conservative party.[16] Because the firm making the donations, Gloucester Research (later becoming GR Software and Research) was based in London the donations conformed to the rule banning political donations from abroad. The Labour MP Tom Watson said: “These very large donations might be within the rules, but it certainly isn’t right that a Treasury minister has been taking money in this way. Most reasonable people will see this as completely unreasonable”.[15]

My favourite so far.

Martin
Andrea Leadsom still has to be 'the best of a bad bunch' imo, Martin? She has an exemplary 'Brexit' record, no if's, no but's, she was 'all in'. Conducted herself with integrity & intelligence, didn't rise to the extreme provocation thrown at her Brexit beliefs!

Theresa May still has splinters in her arse! She's survived 6 years in the 'Graveyard' of Dept's, Why? she goes with the flow, floats under the radar, avoids controversy. Not (imo) what GB needs now, the time for 'ducking & diving' has gone, it's Real Time' now, we desperately need someone who has the gut's to grab it by the B&ll's & belief in GB's Independence to do that.

Someone who is just going to 'delay' implementing what we have voted for is -Unacceptable!

Re: Where are the Conservatives heading?

After reading all your posts I have decided not to vote again. After many years of voting Tory and then UKIP I have come to the conclusion that they are all a bloody bad bunch of liars and are all on the take from the taxpayer one way or another. It's now up to you good folks to vote for me !
