THERESA May is exactly in tune with an angry public whose mood is hardening.
Leavers, and plenty of Remainers, are sick of EU bullying and weak-willed MPs ready to roll over and reverse or forget the whole thing. No Deal is the No1 choice for many, regardless of the fallout.
The world now knows that Michel Barnier never negotiated in good faith. He reportedly boasted: “I’ll have done my job if the exit terms are so bad that the British would rather stay.”
Yet Remainers want to capitulate anyway: to scrap or “extend” Article 50, risibly pretending it’s a pragmatic solution instead of what they wanted all along.
The tactics are so undemocratic the Queen might have to block them. That’s right, these MPs could force our monarch, in her 93rd year, into the worst constitutional crisis for three centuries.
Mrs May is now taking the only good option short of No Deal — to return to Brussels and renegotiate the backstop.
The EU may refuse. Their ciphers in Parliament may even somehow halt Brexit. That would guarantee only this:
An enraged population, electing future Governments more viscerally Eurosceptic and extreme than any Brussels has known.
THE EU’s Irish backstop is NOT holy writ.
Poland’s foreign minister says if the Irish agreed a time limit on it, Mrs May’s deal could pass. Ireland insists it won’t. But it’s a tactic, not a necessity.
Their puffed-up PM Leo Varadkar is effectively blocking a deal and endangering millions of jobs, many in Ireland.
Time Brussels sent some new orders.
LABOUR cries racism every time Diane Abbott fouls up on TV. It’s a smokescreen to deflect scrutiny — and voters know it.
Abbott is auditioning for Home Secretary. If she cannot sustain an argument, or waffles evasively as she did on TV’s Question Time last week, it is not “racist” to point it out or interrupt her.
Abbott IS the victim of appalling abuse on social media. But to claim prejudice lies behind journalists exposing her ineptitude is desperate.
It has nothing to do with her skin colour. Just her unsuitability for high office.
Say sorry, Sir
Emma Fairweather, 46, suffered a broken wrist in the smash with Prince Philip’s car[/caption]
WHY hasn’t Prince Philip apologised personally to crash victims Ellie Townsend and Emma Fairweather?
Philip knows he was to blame. Why isn’t he on the phone?
What is the Palace’s dreadful PR machine up to?
