Teetering and tumbling Theresa May is a pathetically hopeless Prime Minister who will never return to weak and wobbly, never mind strong and stable.
Europe is destroying this Tory leader as mercilessly as it did David Cameron , John Major and Margaret Thatcher, with the mouse now in No10 barely capable of squeaking let alone roaring.
The absence of a single rival for the keys to No10 is suddenly a fatal weakness when every Conservative Tom, Dick and Harriet defies May’s limp authority.
She is conflicted close to the point of paralysis, recognising there is no Brexit dividend, but unable to bring herself to state that she would vote in another referendum for what she’s aware is an unparalleled act of national self harm.
Brextremists David Davis and Jacob Rees-Mogg fighting over the when and how, are two bald men fighting over a comb and Chancellor Philip Hammond’s head in a Tory civil war.
Jeremy Corbyn sitting it out shows a lack of leadership when support for another referendum grows, with 58% of the nation now wanting to take back control of any departure deal. The Tory talk of kamikaze ministerial resignations to topple May is destabilising her to the point of impotence, making her a Downing Street prisoner of Brextremist malcontents.
Conservatives battering each other and UKIP’s disintegration highlight the egos and ideological obsessiveness of the fanatics who are destroying our country. I’m naturally suspicious of officialdom, but I would sooner believe Bank of England governor Mark Carney’s calculations that lower economic growth because of Brexit is costing us £200million a week or £10billion a year rather than the fantasy figures invented by that serial liar Boris Johnson.
Then there’s the prediction that Brexit will be “damaging”, which has come from respected economist Paul Johnson, who is the director of an Institute for Fiscal Studies – usually treated as gospel by the Conservatives,
He said the so-called Brexit dividend “does not exist”. And he adds: “In fact we would need to spend £1billion a year more just to compensate NHS staff for the higher prices already seen since the referendum.”
Office for Budget Responsibility chairman Robert Chote is another who is arguing that Brexit is reducing economic growth.
When May goes is in the hands of a few dozen Tory MPs, but Britain’s future should be determined by the millions of people wanting their voices heard in polling booths now we know the full unpleasant Brexit truth.
