If somebody, in 2010 had told the voters that David Cameron would call a utterly divisive referendum to appease the mentalist leavers his party, and then resign, nobody would have believed it.
If they had then told the voters that the best of a bad lot, Theresa May would be Cameron’s successor, questions would have been raised about her innumerable mistakes in the Home Office, but at least she was a remainer.
If the voters had been told, in 2010, that Theresa would u-turn into an ardent Brexiteer, and that she would trigger Article 50 according to her own timetable, on 29th March 2017, and then, having dismissed any chance of an early election, and then once again u-turned and decided to waste eight weeks of negotiating time on an election, nobody would have believed it.
We were told ad nauseam about how STRONG and STABLE Theresa is. How there would be a COALITION OF CHAOS. How BREXIT MEANS BREXIT. Of course, only the very carefully chosen bussed in Tory voters were allowed to hear the GLORIOUS LEADER. Even the press were subject to restraints on recording or photographing Saint Theresa.
The 48% of the population was to ignored. The 27% who voted leave, we were informed, was the DEMOCRATIC WILL OF THE PEOPLE !!
Not content with ignoring the warnings from the NHS voters, Teacher voters, Police voters and the Fire Brigade voters, all of whom have been crippled by Tory cuts, having studiously ignored 48% of remain voters, and having made NO effort to encourage young people to vote, she decided to cripple the elderly too.
Pensioners houses would be reduced to virtually nothing punishment for being a burden on the state, their winter fuel allowance would be means tested and that the triple lock on pensions was to be reduced.
Off Theresa toddled safe that her scare tactic of the looming negotiations would undoubtably give her a 100 to 150 seat majority.
Not only did the profoundly idiotic woman not get a majority, she failed to get even the 326 needed to be in government.
The only party that were prepared to provide support are the terrorist DUP, with their 18th century mentality. HUZZAH! says May WE HAVE AGREEMENT! Except they haven’t. yet. As the DUP were quick to point out in response to May’s announcement.
We now have a Tory party who, even with the DUP support, have a two seat majority. They can do absolutely nothing.
God knows what having the DUP in government means for Ireland and the Good Friday agreement.
God knows what it means for the EU negotiations. Apparently a turnout of 75% who told May that Brexit was not wanted and she was not wanted has been wholly ignored.The EU will destroy her, and this country. She’s too weak to prevent them.
But, and this is the ONLY thing that is important. Theresa gets to play at Prime Minister for a little while longer!!
Let’s all jump for joy at our strong and stable coalition of chaos bringing a Brexit nobody wants in the name of democracy.
