After squeaking through her Brexit bill this evening in which she fended off a rebellion by the hard-Brexit fringe of her party by surrendering completely to their demands and then barely survived the resulting backlash from remainer Tories – by a mere three votes – Theresa May is now running scared from the UK’s democracy.
The vote cost her at least one more minister, as Guto Bebb resigned from his defence brief to vote against the government.
The panicked PM has tabled an attempt to shut down Parliament tomorrow for the entire summer – five days early – in the hope of escaping further rebellions and disasters until the autumn.
To make so desperate a move, May must seriously fear that the ramifications of her latest chaos, cowardice and incompetence would be so severe that she would not survive the rest of the week if she didn’t.
The UK Prime Minister is not even attempting to lead the country – instead she is almost literally running scared of it and its democracy. It remains to be seen whether her bid will be successful or vengeful Tories and a resolute Labour Party will combine to defeat her attempt.
Cowardice, chaos and incompetence infect the whole Tory government – a fish rotting from its head.
