I’ve watched May’s speech several times. She is definitely struggling with something psychological, which may have been affected by recent stress but has always been there. Many of us have stated as much on this blog before but those tears and that sharp turn at the end of the speech was confirmation that all is not right. Not the emotion itself, if indeed it’s genuine, but that she’s never shown any before, despite ample opportunity. I don’t like to admit it but I felt absolutely no compassion for May. Instead, I feel a hardening of my antipathy towards her, if that is possible!
As the excellent article states, she must be a nightmare to deal with. Unless you’re the EU of course, when she’s perfect in every way.
It makes me think of all those horror or sci-fi movies, where the heroes think they’ve defeated some implacable foe, only for it to rise to its feet to wreak havoc once again (like every Terminator movie).
She, and her Remainer civil service and advisers, will spend the next few weeks until her real departure from No 10, plotting revenge upon the backbenchers, and the Brexit voters.
She should have been told to leave immediately, not allowed to hang around like a bad odour, so that she cannot do any further damage.
Because she will. It’s in her nature. It’s what she does.
