“Theresa’s terrified” to discuss trade deal ‘end state’, paralysed over Green

As observed by Sky News political correspondent Lewis Goodall on Twitter this morning, the Sunday Times contains a damning indictment of what passes for Theresa May’s ‘leadership’ over trade talks with the EU and what the eventual ‘end state’ might be:

theresa terrified

So chaotic and divided is the government over its attempts to reach a deal that May daren’t even say what she thinks the ‘end state’ might be, in case it triggers a deeper split and one faction challenging her position.

That’s assuming, of course, that she even has a view, which is debatable.

Remember when Theresa May boasted how Britain needed her managing Brexit negotiations?

The Sunday Times article also exposes May’s paralysis concerning the accusations against right-hand-man Damian Green. She has received a report – but ‘has not resolved’ how to act.

In other words, she’s frozen by indecision.

Supposedly, the government launches its ‘industrial strategy’ tomorrow – but even May’s team thinks it’s dross.

  3. Brexit is and will be a disaster – if it goes ahead. It has been brought about by the far right in the Tory Party and the media. The truth is, we already have the best deal and should stop this farce before it goes any further. There is absolutely NO all-round acceptable solution to the NI border problem, the talks are just a sham and and a total waste of time. Theresa May knows this just as much as any one else does but she is too frightened of the zealots in her Party to confront them.

    Meanwhile Britain, including those supporters in whose best interest it was to vote against Brexit, suffers.

    • You cannot nationalise things within the EU, people who say you can are either outright telling fibs or simply misinformed. You can have a state run company operating on the free market between bidders, but you cannot nationalise it. If any privatisation was done to the NHS within the EU (which some has), it would not be able to be nationalised without permanently being open for bidding, and obviously this means that the “nationalised” service will forever be run on a profit motive.

      • That article AGREES with my post, it’s just a typical fibbing guardian liberal trying to pull a fast one.

      • Labour policy is to make new companies, municipal ownership, not-for-profit companies, and allow them to grow. Also they intend not renewing outsourced services when the contract ends. None of these are unlawful under the EIU Besides, when it suited other EU countries to ignore that rule, they did. Just that, no comeback. So to raise such objections to move in favour of leaving the EU is simply wasting energy on the wrong issues. You should be far more concerned about the EU now limiting the amount we can draw out of banks in cash, rescinding the protection of savers money in banks, and legalising the option to simply raid savers money when.ever they want to. Now that is something I could agree with being concerned about.

  4. Theresa May is an empty vessel.

    It is not in the national interest for her to remain prime minister.

    • ‘Empty vessels make the most noise’ , we’re told.

      But like green or gauke she’s been rather quiet of late…Mind you, not without reason.

  7. PISS UP AND BREWERY SPRING TO MIND!
    IT STARTED WITH THE FAR RIGHT LEADER FARAGE, WITH HIS BIGOTRY AND HIS OUT AND OUT PREJUDICE AGAINST ALL OUR FOREIGN WORKERS AND REFUGEES!
    THEN THE BACK BENCHES IN THE TORY PARTY, MAKING CAMERON CALL A REFERENDUM WITH NO BACKUP PLAN!
    ALONG CAME JOHNSON SITTING ON THE FENCE WAITING WITH GOVE, TO MAKE HIS MOVE!
    HE THEN FELL ON THE SIDE OF BREXIT, WITH HIS RED COACH AND THE LYING MESSAGE WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!
    THE REST IS HISTORY!
    THE TORIES ARE NOW AT THE POINT OF RUNNING AROUND LIKE HEADLESS CHICKENS!
    THEY DON’T HAVE A CLUE, OTHER THAN DRAGGING THEIR FEET! INSTEAD OF NEGOTIATING!
    TO GET A GOOD DEAL FOR THE BRITISH ISLES!
    THIS TELLS ME THEY’RE NOT INTERESTED IN THE PEOPLE, ONLY THEMSELVES AND WHAT THEY CAN GET OUT OF IT ALONG WITH THEIR RICH CRONIE FRIENDS!
    “COME JUDGMENT DAY”!
    WHICH WON’T BE LONG, “I BELIEVE”!
    THE TORIES WILL, “CRASH AND BURN”!
    ALONG WITH ALL THE RIGHT IN POLITICS!
