One has to feel sorry for Theresa May.
As a Brexiteer I do not want us tied for future to Brussels. No way. Corbyn famously said we should have a customs union and agreement with the EU. even though he is saying of late, quite clearly, that we WILL leave the EU next year and there will not be another referendum. Could he have handled the Brexit negotiations and delivered a deal which satisfied the nation? I think not.
May's deal - I don't know the ins and outs of it, the small print or all the consequences of it or benefits or drawbacks, (does anyone at this stage?) but from all I have read, it will tie us to Brussels and it is not the break from the EU many expected or desired, despite her repeating "No deal is better than a bad deal".
We have to remember she has been playing ball with EU bureaucrats who do not want to lose our massive contribution. Naturally they have not made it easy for us to exit. She has had at least half of Parliament haranguing her too and press speculation at every turn.
TM may now have to face a vote of no confidence and people are rubbing their hands with glee that this has split the party BUT - my question is, given Germany's Angela Merkel's "Take it or leave it" stance today is -
Could any minister of any UK party have delivered a deal for the UK which made everyone happy?
I think the answer is no.
I see Theresa May as the fall guy, which is such a shame.
