The BBC has routinely downplayed, excused or simply ignored much of the incompetence and chaos of Theresa May’s government – but on Brexit, at least, truth broke out in unmissable fashion on Thursday night’s edition of Newsnight.
When host Emily Maitlis asked the show’s political editor Nicholas Watt to report on the state of affairs in the Tory Cabinet, she can’t have expected quite how ‘full and frank’ his response would be as he told of a minister’s words to him:
“F*** knows. I’m past caring, it’s like the Living Dead in here.”
If only the government – and the BBC – were that honest all the time.
The Tories are in utter chaos – and utterly incapable of managing a parliamentary vote, let alone negotiating Brexit or governing the country.
If there are any Tory MPs left at all – in Cabinet positions or not – who care a stuff for this country, they must bring an end to this government – and not just to Theresa May’s damp, sorry excuse for a career.
The only hope for good outcomes on any of these fronts is to let Corbyn and his party take over.
