The Tories have finally become Ukip
"This is the great and final victory of Ukip. They have taken their economically catastrophic EU agenda, their bizarre sense of thin-skinned personal victimhood, and their culture-war poison over immigration and embedded it in the guts of the Tory party."

Blue Lines Revisited - May’s Day
“Ditching Thatcherism?” Not so sure about that one either. In philosophical terms, maybe. But Thatcherism was an electoral strategy too - give the emerging middle class stuff and tell them they deserve it for working so hard. It was a time-limited strategy because the amount of stuff you can sell off (utilities, housing stock) eventually runs out. Cameron and Osborne kept the “you work hard” element but had nothing left to give away. So May is having to go back to interventionist government to keep that side of the promise. But all her touchstones for what hard working families deserve - “a place at a good school” (not just ‘good schools’), “getting on the property ladder” (not just 'good housing’) are couched in Thatcherite terms of limited, not universal, commodities: Thatcher’s dark genius was to realise the 'aspirational’ are only happy when they can be sure someone else is missing out. Wait a couple of years and “access to the best doctors” will be up there too.

May speech makes it clear: We’re leaving the single market
"In years to come, this will be seen as one of the most disastrous speeches ever made by a prime minister. Not only did she propose a goal which will devastate the British economy, she also gave away her own meagre leverage in securing it."
