Theresa May totally blew it today in front of UK parliament and the British nation.
May blamed MPs, the public, and the man in the moon so to speak for her disastrous and piss poor negotiating tactics.
The Guardian reports Theresa May Says High Time MPs Vote for Her Deal.
Highlights At a Glance
- The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, announced earlier tonight that the EU will only back a short extension of the 29 March Brexit deadline if Theresa May’s withdrawal deal passes in parliament next week, which many believe makes a no-deal exit from the bloc more likely.
- Jeremy Corbyn walked out of a meeting with opposition leaders the PM had invited to because Chuka Umunna, who left Labour to form The Independent Group last month, was in attendance. The Labour leader’s snub has earned substantial criticism.
- Theresa May held a short speech at Downing Street this evening, after unsuccessfully trying to have a constructive meeting with Brexiter MPs she hoped to swing. In her speech, the PM pointed the finger at MPs and blamed parliament for the delay in reaching a decision. It has not been well-received, to say the least: Several Labour MPs have since accused May of having stirred up hatred towards members of parliament with her remarks.
- A number of MPs and pundits have said they believe May has probably gambled away any chance of receiving renewed support for her deal by blaming MPs alone for the deadlock. Hell knows what’s next.
Brexit Blame Game
Who On Earth is Advising Her?
That is the question of the day even though the answer is obvious: No one.
Theresa May has listened to no one for two years.
May vs Trump
Theresa May has the second-most top personnel changes in the world in the past two years, topped only by President Trump.
Their outward styles are vastly different but they are from the same mold internally.
- It's my way. I don't give a damn what you think.
- It's your fault for anything that goes wrong. I accept no responsibility.
- Blame everyone else so much that a deal becomes impossible.
Self-Assessed Know-It-All Personalities
Theresa May and Donald Trump are both arrogant, self-professed know-it-all personalities. Neither has the capability to listen to anyone but themselves.
This is not obvious at first glance because their outward appearances are vastly different.
Curiously, if it turns out there is indeed a no-deal Brexit, May will at least have take actions that will serve the UK well in the long run. The same cannot be said for Trump's tariffs.
But don't count on it yet. It ain't over till it's over.
