Theresa May comes under attack from all sides in Parliament as Speaker Bercow calls “mostly hardline Brexiteers”
On Wednesday in Parliament, the nigh on friendless glaring vicar’s daughter Theresa MaybeNOT attempted to persuade MPs that she has managed to broker an “absolutely clear” Brexit deal.
Near to her sat Andrea ‘Loathsome’ Leadsom bizarrely dressed as a cross between Barbie and Katie Price and whilst Jeremy Corbyn responded calling what she’d ‘achieved’ a “worst of all worlds” and a “blindfold Brexit,” it was Speaker Bercow who “mischievously” (according to Sky News’ John Craig) “called mostly hardline Brexiteers.”
Amongst the this time full chamber, Keith Vaz fell asleep and Peter Bone sat angrily considering, no doubt, what the former Mrs Bone might think. Some MPs sat texting, Boris Johnson “bobbed up and down” and Justine Greening, equally, turned on the PM. She sensibly remarked: “If the meaningful vote is lost, the only option is to go back to the people. I think young people would like to be listened to.”
For May it was another tough outing in a House of Commons that was not supporting her and one where Corbyn actually came across rather well. Whilst she simply spouted the same old meaningless platitudes, he summed it all up: “Chequers has been chucked,” he suggested and added: “Here is a half-baked deal that just shows a Conservative Party arguing with itself rather than actually negotiating to get the best for Britain.”
