Theresa May’s problem was making too many compromises on Brexit, not too few, as some charge

The Great Establishment Clobbering Machine will move into overtime against Boris Johnson to stop the Tories choosing him. All the other candidates will compromise on a compromise, and propose a second referendum to reject it, thus passing responsibility for humiliation from the politicians to the people

Poor Theresa. One can’t help feeling sorry for a Prime Minster so limited but so honourable, who was so brutally treated by her own party. The bitterly divided Tories are able to agree on only one thing; dump the leader. So they did. Now they can get back to fratching about Brexit.

History will show that Theresa came in with a very good caring speech and went out on a very moving repeat. It was the bit in between that wasn’t so good. The promises of a fairer society, control of bad business, and dropping the white elephant follies such as HS2 and Hinkley Point were never fulfilled. Nor was her vow to deliver Brexit.

She’s accused of not building a wider unity and never compromising. But that’s just not true. Labour was too divided and its leader not in control of his euro-loving party to offer any help. Given a choice between Europe and the British people, most Labour MPs prefer Juncker.

Brexit delayed – never late, delayed again, postponed or dead

CRIMSON TAZVINZWA, AIWA! NO!||Brexit is an abbreviation for “British exit,” referring to the U.K.’s decision in a June 23, 2016 referendum to leave the European Union (EU).

British Prime Minister Theresa May needs a miracle in Strasbourg

Theresa May is in Strasbourg tonight trying to rescue her Brexit deal by securing a tweak to the terms of the infamous backstop.
