I think some of the candidates in the Tory leadership debates played their hands well. I normally tend not to take in the names of the lesser members of cabinet, but last night I was listening to the news, and they quoted Rory Stewart on Ebola. I must have heard his name dozens of times before May announced her resignation, but yesterday was the first time that he got name recognition with me. I mean, it wasn't a lot just "oh, that's the funny man from Kew Gardens with the big mouth who does fake selfies and seemed reasonable". But it's a start. And now I can add to it "spoke sensibly about the possibly impending Ebola disaster". By the next general election, I may actually know who he is.
The irony is that it's not the opinions that are especially orthogonal, it's the mode of approaching the desired end goal.
Before the twin earthquakes of Brexit and Corbyn, those who appear most antagonistic were most usually in full agreement.
I am sure you are right.
I find UK politics often opaque. I have only lived in electorates that are Tory/Lib Dem. I realised a long time ago I would never vote Tory, so not much thought has been required.
The angry posts are outside my experience. I don't understand why Corbyn is toxic to so many. If I could plausibly vote for him, I would find out. I can't so I don't.
So yeah. Nothing plausible to google here.
