If a string of resignations wasn’t enough to highlight the mess Theresa May is in, the BBC‘s political editor just waded in. Not known for her support of Jeremy Corbyn, Laura Kuenssberg just admitted Jeremy Corbyn got something right.
“He’s certainly right”
Following Corbyn’s speech to parliament about May’s proposed Brexit deal, Kuenssberg tweeted:
Corbyn says 'the govt is in chaos' – he's certainly right about that

People on Twitter were shocked at Kuenssberg’s comment:
Laura agreeing with Jeremy….now I know I'm in a parallel universe.

Unbelievable. Kuenssberg in agreement with actual reality!

Is it all over?
How long May can stay in office is, at the time of writing, still under speculation. But the signs aren’t good. And when even Kuenssberg agrees with Corbyn that the “government is in chaos”, you know the PM is in serious trouble.

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.
