To listen to Theresa May’s first speech to the Tory party conference as Prime Minister is to marvel at the seismic change in British politics in 2016. Ukip has not just pushed for, gained and helped to win a national referendum; more than that, we have changed the entire national debate. Indeed, the centre of gravity has shifted so much that nearly every line in Mrs May’s speech echoed my own at Ukip conferences over the years.
I closed my eyes and listened to the Tories and true to what Nigel said it could have been him making the speech,May is aiming for Labour votes a smart move with labours swing to the far left they must be worried. We must start moving to capitalise on the issues today and not wait.
