Theresa May was completely out of her depth during today’s PMQs (Prime Minister’s Questions). So much so that media including the BBC had to admit she her performance was a ‘shambles’ completely lacking in answers to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s searching questions – and the Deputy Speaker got confused about which party leader is the Prime Minister.
May grew increasingly flustered as her grilling progressed and frequently stumbled over her words. But she also made a very telling ‘freudian slip’.
May had just listed a handful of supposed ‘achievements’ by her government in its negotiations with the EU – but they were all tiny steps of ‘progress on paper’ that were almost immediately completely undone by the Tories’ incompetence and disunity, or by May’s subservience to the DUP or the Tories’ own hard-Brexiters.
Five years ago, then-PM David Cameron made a similar slip when he told MPs the Tories were busy getting ‘more money for the rich’.
May’s slip – that the Tories will get the best deal for the European Union – was quickly corrected, but not quickly enough to hide the obvious.
The truth will out, they say – even from a serially dishonest Prime Minister when under pressure.
