After her humiliating surrender to her extremist Brexiteers yesterday, in which she whipped her MPs to defeat her own proposals, Theresa May tried to pull a dodge to allow her to flee Parliament early, before her own remainers could bring her down.
May tabled a motion to break for Parliament’s summer recess on Thursday – five days ahead of schedule – and the motion was due to be voted on this evening, though not debated as May even used a parliamentary mechanism to prevent any discussion of the move before MPs voted on it, such was her eagerness to avoid any accountability.
But after hearing that Labour was whipping its MPs to vote against the early recess, she has abandoned the motion rather than risk another defeat.
How much longer can the country bear this government of cowards? How long before her own party ends her career – and will the Tories have even the wafer of integrity needed to know her demise requires a general election, not just another Tory leadership procession?
