Theresa May’s disastrous return to the EU this week was just as awful as cynical observers anticipated – but even they may have been shocked at just how bereft of ideas she was.
Most of the Establishment media, of course, have been trying to ‘polish the turd’ of her performance – blaming both the EU and, ridiculously, Jeremy Corbyn for the disaster.
But a couple of moments of honesty from ‘MSM’ sources, perhaps unexpectedly, revealed that May was not just nebulous – the word about which she was caught remonstrating with EU Commission President Juncker – but vacuous:
The EU’s Donald Tusk also made plain that May only went to the EU looking for ‘assurances’, not for any meaningful changes to her appalling deal that she was so afraid to put before Parliament.
It ought to unbelievable that – as reported by the Telegraph, a distinctly Tory-friendly source – that May’s desperate absence of ideas was so profound that she resorted to the meaningless ‘Brexit means Brexit’ catchphrase that she hardly dares repeat these days to the UK public:
Sadly, it isn’t at all.
The honesty of the Telegraph’s Crisp and of Sky’s Dominic Waghorn – which regularly outdoes the BBC for in that regard now – put not just May’s incompetence but also the weaseling of the national broadcaster and other mainstream outlets into stark and unflattering relief.
