Tears For What’s Next

Matthew Steeples suggests there should be no tears for Theresa May but instead for the Napoléon Bonaparte style calamity that now could follow

Today marks the 70th birthday of Jeremy Corbyn and it was, in 1805, also the day when Napoléon Bonaparte was crowned king of Italy in Milan Cathedral.

 

After a week in which Theresa May unjustly turned on the tears for herself – and not for the nation she’s so truly mucked up – we now stand at a crossroads and one that could either propel or destroy Corbyn but also leave our country in exile in Bonaparte’s Saint Helena style fashion. Will the Conservative Party continue on its ruinous path and select Boris Johnson? If so, the likely result at a future General Election will be that party getting well and truly further trounced. A coalition between Labour and the Liberal Democrats would seem the most likely consequence.

 

As tonight’s results come in in the European Parliamentary Elections, we will likely see an equally worrying trend, the rise of extremist politicians. With both Nigel Farage and Tommy Robinson set to do well, we see something else Bonaparte once spoke of: “The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.” God help us all and God help once Great Britain.

  1. She should have cried for the mess she’d created. What about the victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy for a start?

  2. I concede that whoever took over from David Cameron was always going to have a hard time – as there’s no way of doing Brexit (be it with a deal, without a deal, another referendum, etc) that won’t upset a large number of people.

    In that sense, Theresa May was always going to be the ‘fall guy’ for when things went wrong. However, don’t feel too sorry for her. She brought a lot of this on herself. Remember when she called that wholly unnecessary General Election and then ran one of the worst campaigns imaginable? She refused to even turn up to the debates, and was reduced to repeating “strong and stable” like some kind of malfunctioning robot.

    She should have gone after she lost the Tory majority, but she still insisted on hanging on like a limpet with superglue, while lurching from one disaster to another.

    Also don’t forget that she may be crying today – but she’ll be fine long-term. Like all former PMs, I’d be very surprised if she doesn’t end up with a nice life away from politics. There will be lucrative offers to write her memoirs, plus probably a seat in the House of Lords and/or an Honour from Buckingham Palace.

    Meanwhile, the rest of the country is currently on borrowed time where Brexit is concerned – but essentially back to Square 1 as regards any possible deal.

    I truly despair at this utter mess – and look at May’s prospective replacements with a real sinking feeling. What a shower – the lot of them!

    • Nice peice, Ella. I must say I agree with most comments you have written. God only knows what the next step will be to deliver us from the mess both the main parties have created over the last 3 years. Just want to get this mess in to gear and get it sorted.

  3. Crocodile tears, she can cry all the way to the bank with her big fat pension, indexed for life, no sympathy what’s so ever. The big problem we have no is, what Muppet will no take the reins?

    • Exactly. You could say? Tears of a clown, the way she’s ran this circus for the last 3 years, but better suited, tears for herself.
      Good riddance! Now let someone run the country that believes in the electorate.
      Nice one, Dodge
