The ‘I’: Tweezer’s Husband Scuppered Talks with Labour

More personal embarrassment for Tweezer. Today’s I has a story by Katie Grant ‘Philip May ‘scuppered cross-party talks” suggesting that May’s determination not to hold proper talks with the other parties, and particularly not with Labour, may have been due to the insistence of her banker husband. The article on page 9 runs

Theresa May’s husband “scuppered” attempts to secure a cross-party deal for a customs union with the EU by persuading the Prime Minister to keep fighting for her Brexit deal, it was claimed yesterday.

Philip May was said to have urged his wife not to cave in to Labour demands for a permanent customs union, instead encouraging her to push for a Brexit deal that could win over Tory Eurosceptics and their allies in the Democratic Unionist Party.

Mr May’s intervention, according to the Sunday Times, is said to have led Downing Street chief of staff Gavin Barwell to accuse him of thwarting attempts to communicate with the Labour party.

Mr Barwell reportedly said that the Prime Minister’s “rock” had helped to “scupper” attempts to reach out to Labour MPs. But a Downing Street spokesman described these claims as “utter bunkum”.

The article goes on to say that he has intervened on two occasions before, persuading Tweezer not to resign after the 2017 general election, and then later that year after she had a coughing fit at the Tory party conference.

But hold on! Wasn’t the failure of these talks all due to Corbyn and the Labour party refusing to meet May and her team, as said by the right-wing press and Fiona Bruce on Question Time? Er, no. Corbyn rightly wanted nothing to do with them, because there was no point. They weren’t any kind of talks, as only one side would do the talking. Tweezer simply wanted to tell them to support her wretched catastrophe of a deal, and was not going to listen to what they wanted.

It was never a genuine attempt to reach out across the aisle. It was just show. Like her highly staged events where she tried to persuade us that she was meeting ordinary people and listening to them.

No matter how much she tries to cling on to power, it’s very clear that a sizable portion of her party despises her. She only – narrowly – survived her ‘No Confidence’ vote because she pledged to leave office and not take them into the 2020 elections. Now it seems that part of the Tories are losing even this little bit of patience with her.

Tweezer is a disaster, who care nothing for her country and its people, and who just wants to cling to power as long possible. It’s time to prise this barnacle off the ship of state. Get her out, and Corbyn in!
