The foreign secretary appeared outside the Haystack on Canvey two days ago to meet residents and Conservative voters as part of his campaign to be the next Prime Minister, saying that the country has more potential than anywhere else in the world, I wonder if it will ever get to Canvey?
He said that we have the greatest universities in Europe, tech startups, business people, fortitude and drive, but I’ve never seen a university on Canvey, and then he had the temerity to say that we can get on and expand that wealth to our NHS and our education system.
But then he’s got to say that if he wants to get more young people voting Conservative, and has he forgotten how screwed up the NHS is? And notice how he’s not wearing a jacket and tie, that’s because he wants to look more trendy and in tune with his potential young voters, and it’s not only pitiful but it’s also disturbing to watch, but then if they look like MPs, they end up being called out of touch.
The United Kingdom doesn’t have the best universities in Europe, we’re third in the top ten, and most European countries have tech startups with Germany and Holland, and every country has people with grit and determination.
And even if we did have the best universities in Europe, how many people from Canvey would get to study there?
There might be some people out there that like Jeremy Hunt, and want him to be the next Prime Minister, but we need a leader, not a manager.
