Is it me or does Theresa May's 'shared society', with central government tasked to intervene in the operation of bureaucracies and markets on behalf of people*, but more specifically communities, sound, well, un-Tory? Certainly un Thatcherite, with the old emphasis on 'no such thing as society' as 'individual responsibility'. Interesting. About as much chance of delivering something as Cameron's Big Society of course. Her latest pronouncements on Brexit, though still vague, do at least show a grip on reality, you can't have your cake and eat it, if you want full control of borders, law making, trade treaties etc you can't stay in the single market or even the customs union. So we negotiate on how we leave (budget contributions, migrant status etc) and, perhaps in parallel, perhaps after, a series of sector by sector trade agreements. Lower taxes and allow immigration quotas to British based companies to encourage them to stay and invest in the meantime. What does perplex me is how May can make assertions that a simple binary choice referendum on the EU means that the British people also want fundamental change in the way Britain is run. She can infer this, fine, and I may not disagree, but to state it as fact is bullshit. * this does not of course apply to me as a fully paid up citizen of nowhere. Hint to disMay - if you want to major on unity and 'sharing' don't kick off by slagging off bits of your electorate - including many Tory party donors, who are saying the bank is now closed in numbers.
