Readers’ comments: Devious, deceitful . . . discard her!


In response to The Conservative Woman: Should May be ousted before it’s too late?,

May should be discarded immediately not only because she is incompetent but because she is devious and has been deceitful in her conduct of the Brexit negotiations.

Under her, the process towards the most momentous national decision since our accession to the then Common Market has been played out behind closed doors by May and a small group of unaccountable civil servants of her choosing.

What we thought was one of the world’s foremost democracies stands exposed as the literal toy of handful of politicians who have the power to box us into a disadvantageous agreement with the EU from which we will probably now be powerless to escape because it is too late.

If Brexit has taught us one thing, it is that we are no longer the country we thought we were. We the people are the onlookers rather than the deciders of our own destiny. We might as well be Kazakhstan.

I think it is without qualification the most extraordinary spectacle I have witnessed in 60 years of watching UK politics – a prime minister whom no one trusts is taking us to a destination where we do not want to go and no one is lifting a finger to stop her.

The conclusion can only be that we will get what we deserve.

May should have gone after the 2017 election, but that aside, and considering the supposed risk of a vote of no confidence, couldn’t all the Brexit Tories step down from their seats (like Carswell and Reckless a few years ago) declaring their reasons, and maybe form a new social conservative party? I don’t think I’ve seen this suggested, but surely it’s a possibility? It could certainly have a huge effect imo.
