LAST week, instead of standing aside in admission of her broken promises and abject failure to get the EU to agree with anything but BRINO, the Prime Minister coolly broke her word three more times. It is hard to keep up when another follows so hard on the heels of the last.
At the start of the week she irritably announced under questioning that no, she was no going to stand down in the summer (despite previous assurances to her party). That we forgot when in incredulity we learned that she had persuaded the Cabinet to sign away the £39billion so-called divorce settlement to the EU even in the event of No Deal. This item in turn was all but buried by the next news to break, that Mrs May agreed in principle to a deferral of Article 50 – capitulating to the Remainer squad led by Amber Rudd in Cabinet. (Where is their honour in this? Why have not they resigned if they are in such fundamental disagreement with the Government’s stated policy?)
She should have sacked them. But not our obstinate PM. The blog Kathy finally wrote in the struggle to keep abreast, ‘Power-crazy May sheds the last remnants of trust’, unsurprisingly hit a chord and was our most-read blog of the week.
The betrayal over Brexit continues both to bemuse and horrify. Despite being published the week before last, Timothy Bradshaw’s post ‘The EU is on the ropes yet still our negotiators fail to land a single blow’ continues to attract interest and was the second most-read post of the week.
Kathy’s review of Melanie Phillips’s autobiography Guardian Angel, ‘Through Melanie’s eyes, a world turned upside down’, drew much praise for Melanie and underlined the huge regard she is held in by right-minded people. It was third on the list.
It was followed by Karen Harradine’s ‘Corbyn, the Democrats and the enemy within’, an excellent exposé of the intolerant anti-Semitic far Left taking over the American Democrats as they have done the British Labour Party.
Last but far from least was Laura’s challenge to Tory Ministers, and I fear, to many Conservative voters too, ‘Moral cowardice of the Tory ministers’, on the deeply unconservative nature of this Conservative Party. This, the heart of our concerns and the reason for the existence of our website, was arguably the most important post of the week. From this abandonment of conservatism flows all else that is rotten: the loss of moral compass from compulsory early sexualisation of children in education, the state invasion and takeover of the family, and compulsory organ donation to name only a few.
