Government, What Government? [Jun. 11th, 2017|11:42 am]
Tony Grist
It's not clear whether we even have a government at present.

Mrs May has just suffered the humiliation of having to sack her two closest advisers. You'd think she might have said, "If they go, I go." But, no, loyalty in the upper reaches of governance only goes one way. Does Mrs May think that sacrificing her friends will keep her in office? But why would she want to cling to office when every public appearance will be a rite of mortification?

Someone- someone breathing down Mrs May's neck- will have to prepare a speech for the Queen to deliver at the State Opening of Parliament. What on earth can be said in it that won't provoke laughter?

I don't know whether she's clinging, or whether every time she tries to jump, the rest of the Tory party shove her back in place. I suspect that no one else wants the job until Brexit is dealt with. Right now, being leader of the Tory party is a poisoned chalice.

I suppose that could be the case. Leading a government with no majority that will have to lean on the DUP for support is hardly a desirable job.

Of course not. Brexit negotiations begin in a few days time...

In a decade or so, the citizens of both our countries are going to be able to look back on the politics of 2017, and laugh uproariously.

I hope.
