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.
