During yet another dire and empty performance in today’s Prime Minister’s Questions, Theresa May – whose stock tactic when her lack of substance is exposed by a question is to dredge up a smear – regurgitated the laughable smear about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s supposed IRA talks.
She might want to have a look at this graphic, which shows the documented meetings and talks of her predecessors and their representatives – including Tory idol Thatcher – with the same organisation:
May’s non-sequiturs and evasions are a matter of record, but well done to Corbyn for nailing them explicitly during one of his questions:
Not only was Corbyn doing the right – and entirely precedented – thing in talking to try to bring peace, but he also played a key role in helping bring about the 1998 Belfast agreement, as the SKWAWKBOX exclusively revealed almost two years ago, meeting both republicans and loyalists.
Every week Theresa May is exposed as more and more bankrupt – and utterly hypocritical. It’s way past time that she called a general election so the country can elect a functioning government – and a Labour Prime Minister of substance and principle.
