2017 Election - Tory MP Grant Shapps Blames Manifesto For Tory Losses


"World's worst manifesto" says Shapps (mirror photo)
Grant Shapps, the Tory MP for Welwyn Hatfield, has said Theresa May had the "world's worst manifesto" to fight the 2017 election. Later the same day Tory BREXIT minister David Davis joined in, BBC reports:   Brexit Secretary David Davis has blamed the Tories' general election losses on a "badly designed" campaign and Theresa May's social care "U-turn". Mr Davis helped persuade Mrs May to call a "snap election" to strengthen his hand in Brexit talks. But he now says the party did not have enough time to prepare "and some very significant mistakes were made". It comes after ex-Tory chairman Grant Shapps called the party's manifesto the "worst in the world".

Grant Shapps MP, former International Development Minister and a former Conservative Party co-chairman, resigned his co-chair role after an article by The Guardian revealed he had been previously warned about "Tatler Tory" Michael Clarke weeks before the suicide of tory activist Elliott Johnson.

BREXIT minister Davis helped write manifesto
It wasn't the manifesto that lost you seats Mr Shapps it was the success of Jeremy Corbyn in securing a vote share of over 40%  when everybody expected him to lose heavily.  The tory manifesto was written in the arrogant belief that Jeremy Corbyn had no chance at all - it stands out one of the greatest political misjudgements in recent political history.

The Washington Post described the BREXIT vote as the most important vote in half a century- the Conservative Party have displayed gross political incompetence in their "badly designed" 2017 election strategy and now they expect to "move on" to claim "expertise" in the BREXIT negotiations - unbelievable arrogance that the EU negotiators will, no doubt, exploit fully at OUR EXPENSE !
