Tory MP Labels Theresa May’s Government “Dull, Dull, Dull” And Calls For Bolder Leadership
A senior Conservative MP branded Theresa May’s vision “dull, dull, dull” in the latest outbreak of public sniping about her leadership.

Winston Churchill’s grandson, Sir Nicholas Soames is the latest Tory MP to voice unease about the style of Mrs May’s administration, after former minister Nick Boles warned of “timidity and lack of ambition”.

“It really won’t be enough to get people to vote against The Corbini, they must have really sound reasons to vote Conservative,” Sir Nicholas wrote on Twitter on Monday: “We really need to get on with this.”

He added a lengthy hash-tag: “#wherestheboldandbravesofaritsdulldulldull”.

The veteran Mid-Sussex MP and a former defence minister’s comments came just days after ousted Tory MP Nick Boles complained that the Government “constantly disappoints” and put the PM on notice, saying it is “time to raise your game”.

Mr Boles, who lost his seat in the June election, tweeted: “There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints”

“Time to raise your game, Prime Minister. #worboys #HousingCrisis #NHSfunding #etcetc.” he added.

Meanwhile, former Tory chairman Grant Shapps urged Mrs May to demonstrate a “big vision” or risk voters drifting away. “People are crying out for an alternative vision, and it has got to be a long-term plan for Britain in the world,” he told the Evening Standard.

Later, the former culture minister, Ed Vaizey called for “big, bold ideas” and warned against what he called a “safety first approach”. Then, Sarah Wollaston, the Tory chair of the health select committee, said the Government “lacks ambition”.

Challenged about the comments, Mrs May’s spokesman said: “If you look at action taken by the Government in recent months, you can see it is getting on with the job of building a stronger economy and a fairer society that works for everyone.”

He cited cuts in stamp duty for first-time buyers, the race disparity audit and a 25-year environmental plan.

“Of course, we know there is more to do and the Prime Minister is committed to getting on and delivering.” the spokesman added.
