THERE IS NO GREATER POLITICAL GIFT IN THE ANGLOSPHERE...:

May to woo Labour voters in pitch for Britain's center-ground (Reuters, 10/04/16)

With Labour struggling to unite after the re-election of leftist leader Jeremy Corbyn, May will say it is time to become "the party of the workers".

"I want to set our party and our country on the path towards the new center ground of British politics - built on the values of fairness and opportunity," she will say in her speech, according to pre-released excerpts.

"So let's have no more of Labour's absurd belief that they have a monopoly on compassion ... Let's make clear that they have given up the right to call themselves the party of the NHS (National Health Service), the party of the workers, the party of public servants."

May has a long record of trying to push the Conservatives to adopt a more caring image - in 2002, she famously told them that some voters called them the "nasty party",

Since she was appointed prime minister almost three months ago following the resignation of her predecessor David Cameron over the EU referendum, the Conservatives have maintained an opinion poll lead of around 8 percentage points over Labour.

May's approval ratings as a leader dwarf Corbyn's. A poll late last month said only 16 percent of voters thought Labour was likely to win the next election under Corbyn, compared to 65 percent for the Conservatives under May.


...than when the other party reacts towards the First or Second Way leaving your party to claim the Third alone.
