Theresa May’s speech was hideously bad, desperately ill-judged and deeply in denial. So bad that not even the BBC could find anyone to speak positively about it in its round-up afterward
The BBC has spent most of the last nine years passing on Tory propaganda, misrepresenting Labour and ignoring Tory disasters. So when even BBC News couldn’t find a single comment favourable to May’s bankrupt display, you know it was bad:
In the immediate aftermath of the speech, nobody was positive about it. Nineteen hours later, as Mrs May would put it, “Nothing has changed”.
Small wonder, as the statement – even by May’s standards – was uniquely full of denial, cowardice, finger-pointing, dishonesty and an utterly reckless disregard for democracy and for the safety of those onto whom she tried to shift the blame for her disastrous performance. Shame on her.
Now more than ever it’s clear we need a general election now – for the sake of the whole country.
