Theresa May emerged, badly dented, from the Tory confidence vote last night to spout the same, worn soundbites she has used – and ignored – since she became Prime Minister. Even the BBC had to admit that it was the same old same old.
But Tory grandee and former Deputy PM Michael Heseltine went much further. He told the BBC that May is delusional – and then, even more damningly, that there is no ‘element of truth‘ in the slogans she spouts meaninglessly to the nation:
Heseltine is a remainer. He doesn’t have the agenda or axe to grind of the Tory party’s right-wing Brexit ‘ultras’ – and even he thinks May is being untruthful to the public every time she opens her mouth.
Untrusted by remainers, untrusted by leavers, seemingly unable to tell the truth even to herself. ‘Lame duck’ doesn’t go far enough – May is so awful that she merits the coining of some new phrase.
And according to the party she leads, last night, she’s the best they’ve got.
