Family Values

Something to do with Brexit might be the proximate cause of the removal of Theresa May. 

But the real reason will be that, despite her being far more their sort of person than David Cameron was, even the Federation of Small Businesses and even the National Farmers' Union have lately felt moved to endorse Jeremy Corbyn by name, while even the Church of England is providing much of the academic and even the practical weight for Corbyn's rapidly emerging policy programme.

May is more obviously a member of the wider Tory family than any other Leader of the Conservative Party since Ted Heath has been. Yet she is presiding over that family's disintegration. If she goes, then that will be the reason why.

Yes, in order to do something or other with Brexit. But mostly, in order to get rid of Universal Credit, and in order to implement the report of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice. Before Corbyn does.

Not that numerous of Corbyn's own MPs would be at all keen on that. But another hung Parliament is coming, and our people need to hold the balance of power in it.
