As a result of being completely unable to do a Brexit, Theresa May has had to call some proper people in. This irritated members of her own party. Largely as they suspect Corbyn and Co. might actually be telling the truth with that ‘for the many, not the few’ stuff.
For the who now?
One senior Tory told us:
Well obviously you claim to have the nation’s best interests at heart. That doesn’t mean you actually deliver, though. We’ve never delivered, and that didn’t stop people voting for us. They voted Tory right up until the shit hit the fan. Oh no. It’s happening again, isn’t it? This is the shit right now. Everyone get your umbrellas out!
I’d rather bring this country to its knees with Hard Brexit than consider not bringing it to its knees with austerity!
Boris Johnson added:
This is a disgrace – one that I can use to make May step down. So yeah – I’m all for it if I’m honest, which I never am.
Of course, there’s a good chance the meeting will just be 40 minutes of May asking Corbyn to back her deal and ten seconds of him saying ‘no’. Thankfully, we have the totally impartial media to keep us abreast of these developments.
The BBC’s political editor’s update of events never considers May might not be acting in good faith, yet manages to question Corbyn’s trustworthiness. It’s not analysis, it’s pantomime, and @bbclaurak clearly chose her “baddie” a long time ago. https://t.co/qc5AOmdNwb

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
