n response to Ruth Lea: This atrocious deal must be thrown out, Malcolm wrote:
I have often read the expression ‘slow motion car crash’ but never thought to see one in action. May’s complete refusal to understand the groundswell of opposition to her insane proposal, which not only fails in spite of her insistence to the contrary to deliver on the referendum result but also endangers the very fabric of our democracy, will ensure that the Conservative Party will be annihilated at the next election. Whether or not that brings about a Corbyn government will depend on how many previous Labour voters who voted to leave the EU are as disgusted with their party’s betrayal of Brexit as Conservatives are with theirs, but it doesn’t really matter that much. The Tories will have been the ones to have sold the country into effective colony status in defiance of the electorate and will pay a very heavy price. Historians will marvel at the sheer stupidity as much as the disingenuousness.
