Voters’ damning verdict on Corbyn’s betrayal – EXPRESS COMMENT

0

IT IS still 33 days until General Election polling day, but it is clear now that the country intends to give Jeremy Corbyn the greatest vote of no confidence a party leader has endured since the collapse of the Liberal Party in the 1920s.

A YouGov survey of more than 11,500 voters is damning for Corbyn’s hard-Left brand of politics that would bankrupt the country not only financially but also morally. The collapse in the Labour vote in every single region is almost unprecedented. Parts of the country such as the north-east and north-west of England, traditionally Labour heartlands, are now more likely to support the Tories and Boris Johnson.

Should we be surprised? Of course not. The British people more often than not collectively seem to get the right result and show common sense at the ballot box.

They understand Labour’s betrayal over Brexit, promising to respect the 2016 referendum and then continuously thwarting it and now effectively working for a Remain option.

They also understand the lies Labour are telling about the NHS. Since the 1990s Labour has claimed that voters have days to save the NHS and yet with now successive Tory governments, it is still there and in fact enjoying more investment than ever.

As former Labour MP Ian Austin so bravely noted this week, voters have to back Boris for a better future, not least because Corbyn is unfit to govern.

Easing the GPs crisis

On the positive side of the election we have to congratulate the Tory announcement on measures that will result in 50 million more GP appointments a year.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has done an excellent job turning the NHS around and it is clear that he has focused on what for many is a frustration in not being able to see their GP.

It is also a sign that austerity is over and that good times are ahead.

Snowflakes shun Kipling

Rudyard Kipling’s great poem If had much good advice. “If you can fill the unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it.”

Sadly, the school in Brighton which bears his name seems to want to curtail how those 60 seconds are run by banning playground game tag. According to the primary’s head Joanne Smith, tag, enjoyed by many generations is “too rough”.

While Kipling himself suffered terribly as a child from bullying, we suspect the writer would be turning in his grave.

Instead of making people “a man my son”, it seems the school wants to create a generation of snowflakes.
