SAY NO TO AUTOMATIC NEW TORY
Why should the Tory party automatically be allowed to
continue in government? The party is in crisis and since
2016 in government they have failed to enact their central
They do not have a majority in our elected parliament the
House of Commons.
The Conservative Party in government over years has failed
to resolve the major issue of our time, UK – EU relations.
Why should such a party have the apparent right to
continue in government when they have failed to deliver on
this issue, are so divided, are about to select a leader
who may well be less competent than the current one, a
party for these and other reasons manifestly incapable of
realising good and reconciling policy for the UK?

provided by a competent, constitutionally based,
PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM. This would have the power to
intervene in affairs of state after Parliament and
government have utterly failed to reach timely agreement
on major issues. Do we have such a "back up" system? Could
it be the Privy Council, various "deciders" ("oligarchs",
other occult figures) and the monarch or monarchy ?
