SO Rishi has called an election in precisely six to 11 months. I smell a landslide Tory victory in the air, or it might just be the £450 panini press I got for Christmas.
Yes, another 13 glorious years of Conservative rule is within our grasp if we just give the electorate even more of the successful Tory policies they’ve come to love.
Luckily I’ve compiled a list – call them New Year resolutions if you will – that guarantee victory over Starmer and his hard-left fanatics. You might find them ‘controversial’. You might find them ‘harsh’. You might find them ‘mentally ill’. But this is what you must do, Rishi.
Bring back Boris
Your first act should be to bring back Boris as PM, for he is the blond ubermensch with the common touch every true Conservative loves. That’s not to say that you, Rishi, should be tossed aside like a used condom. You could still perform a vital role for the Tories, perhaps taking Boris’ lunch orders or acting as a foot stool.
And Liz Truss
The only problem with Liz was that we didn’t give her visionary free-market economics a chance. As the new chancellor she could oversee genuinely radical, popular policies like privatising air. I’ll be first in line for my pay-as-you-breathe mask, I can tell you!
Close down the transgender factories
Or ‘schools’ as people sometimes call them. It’s now on the National Curriculum that there are 500 genders and it’s normal to marry a cat. Let’s have a traditional education bill where children are taught to memorise the square root of every number up to 1,000 and use a bayonet for their six years of mandatory ‘Imperial Service’.
No more Mr Nice Guy over Rwanda
I think we’ve all had enough of asylum seekers living the life of Riley at our expense, with their free institutional food and luxurious detention centres. We need to get tough with these layabouts, by which I mean kneecapping them. If they want to proceed with their asylum claim, fine, but they’ll have their hands cut off with a circular saw. It’s just the sort of firm, sensible action that Home Counties Tory voters want to see.
Stop being so wishy-washy about Gaza
It’s time to get off the fence and show the brave Israeli bomber pilots and artillerymen we back them 210 per cent with a late Christmas gift of chemical weapons to flush the Hamas vermin out of their tunnels. My idea was warmly received by members of my husband’s golf club, so let’s get the mustard gas factories running again!
And that is just the beginning. I foresee even more radical steps, such as daily televised hangings of Remain traitors still holding Brexit back. Prison sentences for anyone suspected of gender crimes, such as men who wear pink shirts. The final destruction of the NHS, by RAF cluster bombs if necessary.
I’m confident every last one of my readers will be voting Conservative, along with at least 95 per cent of the general population. Rejoice, as our greatest leader once said, because tomorrow belongs to us. I’m not sure who said the second bit, but I’m sure it was someone I’d agree with.
