“The Leaden Lady Steps Down

“It was high time for this to happen

“Theresa May has announced she is to stand down as Prime Minister on 7 June following months of mounting pressure over her failure to deliver Brexit”

 

It was indeed high time that Theresa May leave her office.

She is the second worst prime minister in modern British history.

It is just embarrassing what she has put Britain and the entire EU through over Brexit.

And it’s not just what she’s done around Brexit.

It’s also her utterly servile posture towards American imperialism.

Good God, that whole ugly, made-up Skripal Affair with no evidence ever supplied and no one allowed to even talk to the “victims?”

All to increase the amount of Russophobia in the world and please the American government?

Making the most horrific charges in public without evidence against a major world leader?

And imagine wasting countless billions on the new Trident missile submarines and two huge aircraft carriers when the county’s basic health services are in peril and British railroads can’t even maintain good service? Some priorities.

Her appointment of Gavin Williamson as Defense Minister, a man who made some even more insane statements in public than Donald Trump? Well, at least she sacked him, but surely a five-minute interview should have confirmed him unfit to hold any cabinet post, much less defense?

She ranks second worst only to David Cameron, who created, needlessly and foolishly, the entire Brexit crisis.

Imagine thinking you can hold a general referendum on a devastatingly complex matter like Brexit, one which baffles experts?

Never mind its being called democratic, it was just plain stupid, in the extreme, asking people to vote on an immensely consequential matter with little understanding of it.

And at a time when xenophobia, never too far from Britain’s public consciousness, was rearing its ugly head. Something guaranteed to drive “leave” votes for the wrong reasons.

But Boris Johnson? The fart in a church service? As Prime Minister?

Britain really has had some terrible leadership for decades.

Good old Tony Blair and his lying and cheating help to illegally invade Iraq and kill a million people. Unlike May and Cameron, Blair was “effective” in getting what he wanted. It’s just that what he wanted was completely evil.
