On Wednesday, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, speaking to the European Parliament, brutally exploded Theresa May’s mirage – and the doublespeak of the UK’s mainstream media – by making it absolutely clear that the Irish ‘backstop’ is not negotiable:
May’s supposed ‘win’ – or even ‘triumph’, according to the more rabid Establishment mouthpieces – was entirely based on the idiotic idea that May could simply tear up her woeful withdrawal agreement and reconstitute it without the part her hardliners hate most.
Ireland’s border is Europe’s border and it is our priority.Juncker demolishes May’s pretensions that there is any hope for her nonsensical approach
That was always a fool’s proposition – as Jeremy Corbyn made clear during PMQs this afternoon – but Juncker put it beyond doubt, dispelling May’s ‘alternative arrangements’ smoke and mirrors at the same time.
The mirage of May’s win was always self-evidently fake, no matter how hard the media worked to pretend otherwise.
It’s time for a general election – which has always been the only viable route out of the chaotic mess May and her party have created.
