I had a moment of ridiculous stupidity last week. I had this idea that Mrs May wanted a huge mandate to save the country from itself. She wanted a huge majority so she could turn round to the country in 10 weeks or so and say, "It is in the National Interest that we reluctantly take the action of not leaving the EU as it will cost the country too much. We appreciate this is not what people voted for in 2016, but you all gave me your vote to ensure the best result is for the UK and in my opinion and the opinion of many of the experts you spurn, if the UK leaves the EU we'll be competing with Mali and Chad as the world's 200th largest economy by 2020."
It, obviously, won't happen and can you imagine the amount of shit that would hit the fan if that did happen? Mrs May is probably mildly confident she can get the EU to do a deal with us and is viewing all this pre-negotiation rhetoric as chest beating which will quieten down when Europe realises they can't do without whatever it is we do now.
If that doesn't happen and things get as bad as traitors and saboteurs, such as me, have forecast, then it won't really matter who's in charge of the country because things will go from bad to worse even if Jesus was PM, Buddha his Home and Mohamed his Foreign Secretary.
What if the UK loses lots of money and foreign trade? What if the amount of money coming into the exchequer is considerably less than it is now and whatever government is in charge has to borrow even more?
Well, unemployment usually goes up around the 6 year mark of a Tory dominated government. Thatcher only really made it look as though she was getting unemployment down by changing the criteria of how it was measured and, of course, creating things like the YTS and Community Program Scheme, which would almost be considered a bit liberal by many Tories in 2017. With less trade being done and heavy tariffs applied, many companies will be looking to downsize and consolidate, so unemployment is likely to rise steadily over the first two years of Mrs May's mandate.
Inflation is already going up and is likely to rise considerably more as we get to that 2 year mark. At the moment many of the supermarkets and food manufacturers have been cutting back contents by between 10 and 25% to keep the prices as low as possible, but if you have a family you start to realise just how much is going to be shoved onto your weekly shopping bill. Even shoppers at Aldi and Lidl are noticing a visible rise in the cost of certain things. And remember, regardless of what the rate of inflation is, supermarket price rises tend to be by a minimum of 10p a time.
So, high unemployment; high food and energy prices (even with a cap - because the cap will be set by the supplier, just you wait and see). Plus, because there will be much less money and the Tories will steadfastly not raise taxes on their core vote it will mean public services will be killed off; everything that can be run by private companies will be; and the rights of the existing workers in those jobs will be simplified - accept this or get fired. Things that can't be run by private companies will be run by charities, who will be offered tax breaks to be able to earn enough money to be able to afford some staff.
There will no longer be on-the-ground workers for children and the vulnerable, there would be a 'registering' system, a bit like getting a number for insurance claims when the police admit they can't and won't find the person who broke into your car. Registering means that if something goes wrong, someone can be blamed - because blame is what the Tories do the best, it deflects attention away from their own failings.
As austerity bites even harder, more people will end up homeless as house prices devalue by a third (plunging a percentage of people into a negative equity trap); calls for more regulation of the rental market will be ignored, as will the pleas from charities and social groups for the neglect of certain areas of the UK.
There will also be a hard border between all of Ireland and the rest of the UK. As a concession, Northern Ireland's relationship with Ireland and the EU will be brushed over to allow the fragile state there to remain good, but anyone coming from the island, whether north or south, will be subject to Draconian border checks. The UK will effectively allow a 'united' Ireland to save itself money.
Two years into the Supreme Leader's mandate we'll start seeing a new blame game. The press will start by blaming the EU for not bending over and allowing us our way. Then Remainers and the 100 or so non-Tory Remain-supporting MPs will get the blame for all the woes.
Someone like Michael Gove will be given air time to suggest it is the negative attitudes of Remain voters that is dragging the UK back. Someone, probably Farage or the twat with the cap, will start suggesting that we wouldn't have so many unemployed if the remaining Europeans (maybe even others) weren't here doing it and the Mail will see this as something that should become public opinion, because it will detract the attention of people beginning to wonder what they're getting out of all of this. Even if Mrs May agrees on a deal for existing EU nationals to stay - unmolested - in this country; time and public opinion (the two things she appears to want the most) will start to shift her way of thinking. She isn't Maggie; she flip-flops far too much. This lady will turn whenever you prod her.
Divisions will actually get worse because as the jingoistic Leave voters start relaxing their morals for the benefit of fitting their agendas, the horrified and terrified Remain voters will be viewed as weak and traitorous, even more than they currently are. The Us and Them mentality that is so apparent if you pick up a newspaper will become an actual reality. This isn't me scaremongering, it's me extrapolating on something that is happening already - verbal fights between the 'morally-superior' Remain voters and the idiots who voted as turkeys for Christmas will, as they did in the days before the referendum, spill into the streets, the pubs, the lives of everybody.
The Tories have for so long used BLAME as the reason to hate others it will eventually unleash a wave of disorder - of discord - throughout the nation, but by then we won't have an NHS; we won't have public services; we'll barely have police on the streets to marshal the huge amounts of dissatisfied unemployed who will blame whoever the Sun or the Mail tells them to. This is what happens when more than 50% of a country loses its mind and forgets why it wipes its arse.
Yet, I listen to people telling reporters on the TV or radio that they trust the Conservatives. I'm sure there were Jews or Gypsies, some gay or black people who trusted the more benevolent guards in Belsen or Auschwitz...
There is one ray of hope for the planet. World War 3 is coming and once mankind is wiped off this planet, perhaps what is left will heal and a new species will evolve, one not intent on being a bunch of worthless cunts.
