Good Morning Britain‘s political editor exposed Theresa May’s true priorities on 21 January. Ranvir Singh told the show’s viewers that the prime minister’s loyalty is “blue at its heart”. Effectively, she told the nation that May’s allegiance lies with her party, not the country. So, May’s Brexit ‘Plan B‘ will seek to save her crumbling party rather than do right by Britain.

That’s an unusual level of honesty to see on UK TV. And it’s an alarming fact for the country to hear.

Party first

May has to come up with a Plan B sharpish after MPs voted against her ‘Plan A’ by 432 to 202 on 15 January. So Singh spoke on GMB about what to expect next in Brexit Britain.

Singh’s comments suggest May is not the person to do that. And other reports about what Plan B might entail suggest the same. The Guardian, for example, claims May will not try and get a cross-party consensus on the new plan. Even worse, the Telegraph says that May is considering rewriting the Good Friday Agreement, which brought peace to Northern Ireland, in order to “unblock the Brexit logjam”. A No 10 source, however, denied this.

Frankly, it looks like May’s Plan B might work for her party, but to hell with everyone else.
