Senior aides to Prime Minister Theresa May believe she is “finished” and want her to “fall on her sword” now and set a date for her departure, in hopes this will allow her to “go with dignity”.
The calls follow a second heavy defeat for the Withdrawal Agreement which Mrs May negotiated with the European Union, which is deeply unpopular with Brexiteer Tories as well as Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), on which her minority government relies to achieve a parliamentary majority.
Rather than embark upon the clean, No Deal exit which is the legal default on March 29th in the absence of a deal, the Prime Minister is instead pushing for a third vote on her deal and an extension of the ongoing Article 50 negotiations with the EU and a delay to Brexit — something she had repeatedly promised she would not do.
And I suppose that after she loses a third vote, she’ll push for a fourth vote, and then a fifth.
She may as well be working for the EU rather than the UK. And in fact she probably is. I think that the EU bought most of our politicians a long time ago, and she was probably one of them.
Only two weeks to when Britain is supposed to leave the EU.
I bet we won’t.
