Chaotic times

Obviously, this time, May wasn’t leaving her PM lodgings for long. But it’s easy to see why Rayner thought she was. Five of the PM’s ministers had resigned before she even spoke about the Brexit deal in parliament.

Clearly, May’s on very shaky ground. So no wonder Rayner thought she was about to see the back of this PM. She may still yet.
