The Maybot is rebooted as strong and humble. Stumble for short | John Crace | Politics | The Guardian

Here’s a colourful political sketch from John Crace in the Guardian. He argues how unfortunate that the Supreme Leader didn’t decide to ‘listen and govern’ before the election rather than after it

This sketch would be amusing if it was not so serious for the country. Whether she’s ‘weak and wobbly’ or ‘strong and humble’ is less important when the whole world knows that Theresa May‘s a lame duck on borrowed time. It’s not enough to conclude simply that May’s preferable to Boris or Jeremy.

The UK is struggling economically, with limited upside potential and cliff-hanger downside risks. It’s strange when big business and the Treasury provide a common message that hard Brexit will impale the UK – of course, the world’s top economists having been sounding the alarm since before the Brexit referendum but evidence is out of fashion. Toss in a lame-duck Chancellor, who would have been fired if May had an ounce of power left. Meanwhile, other senior cabinet ministers are likely to spend more time focused on their leadership bid than the great offices of state.

It’s an omnishambles. The manifesto is already a work of history gathering dust. The Queen’s Speech is delayed because May’s junior partner is already demanding a bigger bonus.

Before jumping into bed with Corbyn’s Labour Party, let’s remember that the traditional Labour Party was hijacked by shadowy hard-left radicals for whom the end justifies the means and evidence and truth are readily buried.

Surely, it’s time for the British mainstream media to start providing the British public with live ammunition, returning to evidence rather than pandering to populism false news?

  1. Absolutely. Jeremy Corbyn as PM would be a disaster, too, although there was always the hope that the people he’d have to rely on in parliament to get things done would water him right down – and do so in the right direction, back towards the political centre. That would make it impossible to implement the most outlandish ideas of his, such as re-natoionalisation of our railways etc.
    With TM, unfortunately, the force putting her over the finishing line, is pulling her the wrong way to more extremism.
