A reporter on the Brexit chaos currently unfolding gave shadow education secretary Angela Rayner, and thousands of Britons, the best and worst moment of the bedlam so far. The unnamed journalist reported that prime minister Theresa May is “exiting number 10”.

After the drubbing the PM’s Brexit deal is getting on 15 November, you can imagine what everyone thought the reporter meant.

My giddy aunt

Rayner shared her moment of “giddy” excitement, and the subsequent rotten letdown, on social media:

Clearly, a number of people felt equally elated at the possibility of May exiting Number 10 for good:

Many also appeared to think that May’s permanent exit from Downing Street was still on the horizon:

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. And it appears that the party propping up her entire government, the DUP, is going to reject her plan.

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.

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?
