I am very conscious my “Letter from Westminster” in today’s Romsey Advertiser is (yet again) hideously out of date, and I only wrote it yesterday morning……
If a week is a long time in politics what on earth have the last 6 months been? Like the general public I am worn out by the instability, behaviours and lack of certainty.
Although I have never made any secret of the fact I did not vote for Liz Truss to be Prime Minister, on a personal level I feel for her. It is a brutal job, and clearly one that takes a massive toll on the individual.
But – we have to look forward and solve this instability. We need a Prime Minister the country has confidence in, one who has the ability to bring people together. That is why on Channel 4 News last night I was urging colleagues to join forces, bring campaign teams into one, and lets have one candidate emerge. It shouldn’t be impossible.
Above all else we need one who will work in the national interest, solve the massive economic challenges we face, and think first of the country not themselves.
