As usual, Theresa May‘s much hyped speaches are vacuous and full of twot. The Evening Standard‘s take away is that there’s no question of a second referendum. Had May and her negotiating team of ‘has-beens’ deployed expert negotiators, they would have used defense cooperation and mutual security as a negotiating wedge. Sadly, May’s words are now ignored and most players are waiting for her demise. Thoughts?
The Independent reports that Prime Minister Theresa May‘s insistence that no Brexit deal is better than a bad one does not have public support, citing new research claims. In research by King’s College London, Rand Europe and Cambridge University found that people place more value on trade deals with the EU and foreign countries than on curbing free movement of labour. The article clarified that the organisers said the research method they used during interviews with 917 people is more rigorous than traditional polling.
Once more, we see that Theresa May is out of step with the emerging context, But the lady who sought power to lead will be forced to follow. Already the cabinet are getting more outspoken but the real test will be parliament’s teeth.
Ultimately, we need some brave Conservative and Labour MPs to stand up for their beliefs not follow like lambs to slaughter?
