Theresa May is clearly desperate to preserve any remaining shred of credibility she can cling to – but this evening her desperate attempt to do so gave away the game and showed there is none.
May was speaking at a press conference at the Balkans Summit in London, alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, when a reporter tried to ask Merkel what she thought of May’s ‘Chequers deal’ that tore apart her Cabinet, has Brexiteers vowing to defeat her in votes until they get their way and saw a large number of MPs send letters of no confidence in her to the senior Tory committee.
Remarkably, May intercepted the question and refused to let Merkel speak – to loud laughter from the German side as the Chancellor’s face spoke volumes:
All May achieved was to make herself look ridiculous – and Merkel’s opinion must be dim indeed for her to go to such humiliating lengths to keep it from the UK public.
The Chancellor made that more than clear by her wry smile.
