Jeremy Corbyn has outflanked Theresa May twice in one afternoon. First, the Labour leader manoeuvred her into committing to a date for the ‘meaningful vote’ on her dismal excuse for a Brexit deal, by threatening a no-confidence motion in her if she didn’t provide one.
Then, as May started to relax and the media went into ‘full-on fake-news mode‘ about the motion, he called it anyway – and May, thrown, fled the Commons Chamber:
Now May faces another no-win situation.
The government has to make time in the Commons schedule this week for the vote to take place – if she dodges the vote by failing to make time, her cowardice is obvious.
If she lets it go ahead, then she faces a vote she may well lose – and the pro-Brexit MPs who voted against her in the Tories’ internal vote of confidence this week have to answer for why they consider she is fit to lead the country if they don’t believe she’s fit to lead the Tory party.
Corbyn is running rings around May – and around the media that support her.
More news the ‘MSM’ won’t feature.
