Naff “Global Race” Here To StayIt Will Be Tory Party Conference Theme

It took the Prime Minister less than ten seconds to get the buzz words “global race” into his press conference at the end of the EU summit this week. Every Tory popping up on TV over the weekend dropped it into conversation and you can expect to hear it a lot more. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, the naff phrase will be the theme of this year’s Conservative Party Conference. Ministers have been asked to come up with policies to be unveiled in Manchester that reflect this focus grouped message. While this is easy for the likes of Business and the Foreign Office, more domestic departments have been left baffled.

So what Global Race is the UK winning?

We are doing pretty well in the “Biggest Deficit in Europe” Category: We are in third there, just behind Greece and Ireland.

In the “Slowest Growth Rate in the G20”, the UK is also nearly in the lead, just behind Japan and Italy.

We are winning gold in the “Slowest growth in the English-speaking world” category!

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
