• He needs to get the General Electorate to understand that 29.6% of all income tax revenue is paid by the top 1% of taxpayers; 50.1% is paid by the top 5%. Shadow Chancellor McDonnell and his stated aim to destroy capitalism needs to be called out for the wealth and tax revenue destroyer he is.


• But the problem is that 43% of the British Electorate in 2015 paid no tax at all! Indeed the bottom 50% of those in work pay just 9.2% of all income tax collected. Millions aren’t anti-wealth, but increased taxation is of no interest to them. So the accent has to be on the Marxist taxation of self-improvement and aspiration and (by confiscation of 10% of all companies employing more than 250 people, imposing a wealth tax and increasing corporation tax to globally uncompetitive levels) the destruction of the creation of the very wealth that produces the tax that pays for schools and hospitals.


• A credible threat that must be rammed home hard to would-be Labour voters is that the milch cow will just up sticks and go to where it is welcome; the wealthy will exercise choice and leave; there has already been a 6,000 drop in high net worth individuals residing in the UK in the last year. That can only be bad for not only that middle income Head Teacher, but also the payer of lower rate income tax who will eventually have to take the strain of an experiment born in Das Kapital.


• The abject failure (some would say, intentionally so) of Labour High Command to deal with the disgusting anti-Semitism rife in a once-great party needs to be highlighted again and again. Moderate Labour MPs need to be persuaded that they simply cannot knock on doors in an election campaign begging people to vote for the current party Leadership with all its hate-filled baggage and economy-destroying policies.


• Boris should junk the old mantra of the Tories calling for a smaller State in people’s lives. The world has changed and so have the expectations of (especially younger) voters. As Dominic Cummings, the PM’s senior adviser has said, the State needs to be reformed, not reduced in size. Better delivery, more focussed spending (both geographically and sectorally) and more help with new, not recycled, money are the creed that should be trumpeted everywhere.


And as for Boris’s ability to deliver in peacetime… I have my doubts. Once the smoke and noise of conflict recede and dodging the muck and bullets is for yesterday, I fear our Prime Minister will realise how little global power he actually has and ennui will set in. That’s when he’ll need excellent advisers across the spectrum of government... and he’ll need to do what they advise.


I wish the Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip all the good fortune in the world as he embarks on two enormous and vitally important projects. The country cannot afford for him to fail; the entire business community, every Conservative MP and those in the centre political ground should get behind him.


As readers will know, I have never belonged to a political party in my life and don’t intend to start; moreover I supported Jeremy Hunt in the Leadership Election, but I respect the expression of democratic will; it’s a pity so many others in such serious matters don’t!

The alternative to Brexit on 31st October would be the exercise of Tyranny by Parliament. The alternative to Boris Johnson winning a General Election would bring disaster to the country more quickly than you can say “Venezuela”!
