Just when you’d think it couldn’t get any worse, the Tories’ double-speak has reached new depths.
Theresa May has spoken of her ‘unshakeable sense of purpose’ at the same time as begging Jeremy Corbyn to help her on Brexit:
You really couldn’t make it up – remember when she couldn’t think of anything else to say during the election campaign except ‘Who do you want at the Brexit negotiating table – Jeremy Corbyn or me‘? Now she’s begging for help from the man she ridiculed.
Corbyn has already signalled via his team that he’s in no mood to bail out a sinking government or its hapless leader. Front-bencher Andrew Gwynne told the Independent:
Letting May sink without trace is for the good of the country, as anything that props up this ‘Cabinet of Chaos’ that remains determined to impoverish our vital public sector workers in pursuit of a ‘busted flush’, politically-driven austerity is simply prolonging the suffering of millions of our disabled, poor, vulnerable or young people.
If Theresa May gives two hoots for this country, rather than her political
farce career, she will be taking that trip to Buckingham Palace first thing on Monday morning to resign so that the country can elect a real leader who’s clearly been a PM-in-waiting since the morning of 9 June.
