Theresa May came to the lectern in front of TV cameras this evening after a seven-hour Cabinet meeting to describe what she called ‘a decisive moment’ for the UK.
She seemed to think that seven hours in a meeting was impressive – but in that seven hours, the only ‘decisive’ things she came up with were the admissions that:
- she needs to plead for the EU to grant the full extension to 22 May instead of the interim 12 April one
- only Jeremy Corbyn’s involvement in the negotiations are likely to persuade the EU to agree that extension
- only Corbyn has the stature and ideas to get the UK out of the mess she has created
The Tory party promptly imploded, not least because it exposes the nonsense it has been peddling since Corbyn became Labour leader – and puts Labour into an even stronger position in the general election that even Tories are starting to admit is approaching.
One Tory Brexiteer reacted to May’s confession:
A new low. We delegate the decision making on this to the man we’ve spent four years saying isn’t fit to govern. You couldn’t make it up. Let’s give him the keys to screw our colleagues in marginal seats. Seriously?
Another two were remarkably frank to a Sky News correspondent:
But some were ready to concede almost anything to get Corbyn to help:
Corbyn has agreed to a meeting. Either May will concede to Labour’s commonsense demands for the good of the country, or it will be a very short meeting.
Theresa May has admitted that Corbyn and Labour are the solution to the quagmire into which she has dragged the country – and that her party’s smears against the Labour leader have been politically-driven nonsense.
It’s time she gave the country the opportunity to put them fully in charge of the process.
