While the GOP officially crowned its presidential nominee in Cleveland, across the pond in England something magnificent happened. Theresa May participated in her first parliamentary exchange as British Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party, and she absolutely decimated her liberal opponent, Jeremy Corbyn. Townhall’s Guy Benson sums up nicely how she skewered ideology after left-wing ideology:
On women in politics: “I’ve long heard the Labour Party asking what the Conservative Party does for women. [Cheers]. It just keep making us Prime Minister.”
On racial politics: “It’s correct, if you’re black, you will be treated more harshly in the criminal justice system. It’s exactly why, as Home Secretary, I dealt with the issue of ‘stop and search.’ I was concerned to make sure that nobody should be stopped and searched on the streets of this country because of the color of their skin. I did that as a conservative. Thirteen years of Labour did nothing on it.”
On fiscal responsibility: “[Corbyn] uses the language of ‘austerity.’ Can I just say this to him? He calls it austerity. I call it living within our means. He talks about austerity. But actually its about not saddling our children and grandchildren with significant debts to come.”
On jobs vs. welfare: “We are concerned about [the poor]. But the answer is not the Labour Party’s answer of unlimited, uncapped welfare for people. The answer is…to have a strong economy. An economy that delivers jobs…And finally, I’d just say to the right honorable gentleman: The Labour Party may be about to spend several months fighting and tearing itself apart. The Conservative Party will be spending those months bringing this country back together.”
As you can see, all of May’s statements are easily applicable to American politics. Watch her entire phenomenal performance below.
