After her statement on Tuesday to MPs about her latest complete lack of progress in persuading the EU to do what it has said it absolutely will not, Jeremy Corbyn took Theresa May to task about her continual and reckless running down of the clock on her hopeless Brexit deal – and the damage it is already doing to this country and its citizens.
And then Theresa May reduced the House of Commons to howls of derision – by blaming Labour for the delay upon contempt upon delay that she has inflicted on the UK’s democratic process:
May and her government had been found guilty of contempt of Parliament for her constant evasion of accountability – and cancelled the planned ‘meaningful vote’ minutes after her ministers were guaranteeing it wouldn’t happen.
So her intentional amnesia as she claimed she had ‘wanted to have this sorted before Christmas’ was just too much for hundreds of MPs – and their raucous reaction showed that she is the one now held in contempt.
