The Great Betrayal of Brexit is happening
So it has begun. The Great Betrayal that UKIP forecast many months ago is underway. A 'withdrawal deal' is supposedly almost complete. Since the Prime Minister's speech at the Tory party conference, negotiations have been in overdrive as her Chequers plan has been watered down even further. We do not know what concessions May has given to the EU but there were strong rumours that she was offering to keep the whole of the UK in the Customs Union for an undefined period, something that Tory Brexiteers have said is not acceptable. There was a further rumour that the emerging deal would keep Northern Ireland in the Single Market and thus different conditions from the rest of the UK. This is not acceptable to the Unionists.
We should not be surprised at this betrayal. This useless, hapless, gutless, hopeless Prime Minister is, after all, a Remoaner. By accident or design she has completely mishandled negotiations with the EU since she became Prime Minister. An MP in a marginal seat was quoted in the Sunday Times today: “I have lost all faith in this shitshow, which has run out of road on Brexit and is bereft of ideas on the domestic front. We don’t even deserve to be in power.” He is right. But it is time for the Brexiteers to oust May. She is betraying the people of this country and selling us down the river.
