I’m just putting it out there. Howard could stand for the Conservatives in the seat of Thirsk and Malton, which is due to hold its election on 27th May. Given that Cameron failed to deliver a majority, Howard would have cause for pushing him aside in a primary vote off. The sight of which would make Gordon Brown and Nick Clegg wet their pants. I’ve no doubt that the conservative newspapers would get behind him and the Premiership would then be his.
During the height of his powers Howard was consistently rated by UK conservatives as the best conservative leader in the world at 53 per cent.
With the way the political left are constantly going on about how Menzies supposedly wanted to take over from Churchill during WWII, you would have thought that they would have proposed the idea of Howard taking over from Cameron by now.
Fantasy aside, looks like bed wetter David Cameron is about to become PM. I don’t think he has what it takes to turn the UK around. Someone may have to stab him in the back half-way through the 5 year term, assuming the coalition or minority government – which ever it ends up being – lasts that long.
