SHE has failed on Brexit and on social justice. Now Theresa May looks like she has chosen to appease Sinn Fein instead of doing right by our forces veterans.
Old soldiers are being hounded over disputed actions in the white heat of the Troubles nearly half a century ago.
Instead of leaving them to a comfortable retirement with a nation’s thanks, our Government’s spineless complicity is putting them through hell.
Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley plans a huge, five-year inquiry by a Historical Investigations Unit into hundreds of killings in the line of duty.
And while new Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt rightly wants a ten-year limit on prosecuting ALL troops, the PM herself appears to have capitulated to the IRA’s former political wing and exempted Troubles veterans.
We thought this appalling witch-hunt would die with the demise of shyster Iraq lawyer Phil Shiner. We were wrong.
Mrs May’s replacement must defend those who risked their lives defending us.
PERIL FOR MPS
IF politics is unstable now, just wait until the Tories’ last roll of the Brexit dice fails.
Why wouldn’t it? Precious little has changed since the last vote. And Parliament, as Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay says, will then face a momentous choice: No Deal, or revoke Brexit.
We doubt this crop of MPs has the courage to make it.
They have scared themselves witless over No Deal. But they should fear pulling Article 50 more.
If already disliked politicians defy our democracy and the referendum result, the consequences will be seismic — for Tories most of all.
Outside Westminster’s Remainer bubble, the anger is everywhere.
Next week’s thumping victory predicted for the Brexit Party may focus MPs’ minds.

Disgraceful behaviour is being indulged by our pathetically weak justice system
FOR a glimpse of the madness Corbyn would inflict on Britain, consider the leaked plans to nationalise our energy supply and hand it to local politicians.
Labour would seize the privately-run National Grid and electricity network, paying negligible compensation: Simple theft, from 800,000 Brits with shares.
Businesses and investors would flee as the Marxists snatch private property. Jobs would be lost in colossal numbers.
This shambolic new energy industry would dance to the tune of hard-Left unions given massive power.
Blackouts in the 1970s turned off the lights and TV. Imagine them now, in a country utterly reliant on computers and smartphones.
So why do it? Would it improve efficiency, or cut our bills? Of course not.
It’s not about improving lives. It is about blinkered ideology.
It’s a giant, economy-destroying experiment, establishing the pure socialist society Corbyn has fantasised about since his teens.
It would be a dark place in every sense.
