TREACHEROUS Theresa’s betrayal of her country over Huawei has led to the sacking of one member of the government who’d begun to get his act together in the country’s interests. If you are in any doubt please listen to Lord Dannatt, a former chief of the Defence Staff, interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme yesterday morning (at 8.19 am). Also read the Telegraph article by Rob Wilson which helps explain why Gavin Williamson, a convert to Brexit, was an infinitely more of a threat to Mrs May -determined to stay in power at all costs – than the in name only Brexiteer, Penny Mordaunt, who has less grasp on the principles at stake. It is all too depressing for words.
To understand the full enormity of it and the anti-democratic/anti-America/anti-Nato and pro-EU civil service takeover of government under Kim May’s premiership, please read intelligence expert Bruce Newsome’s devastating posts for TCW on this, here and here where he writes in detail about the background to Theresa May’s embrace of Huawei – a scandal that in my book looks likely to eclipse all political scandals before it.
She can’t hope to go without punishment. It’s started – from the voters. The Tories are suffering heavy losses as the local council election results come in. At the time of writing they are down nearly 400 seats and have lost control of 14 councils.
She would be dealt an even more punishing blow in the EU elections when up against the Brexit Party. The most recent YouGov survey for the Times put Farage’s party on 30 per cent – up two points since last week – to Labour’s 21 per cent (down one) and the Conservatives’ 13 per cent (unchanged).
This is of course is the reason May is so keen to close a deal with the Marxist anti-Semite Corbyn so that the EU elections can be called off. Allister Heath is right about the most evasive holder of her office ever – proven by a recent close comparative study. He argues that she should be allying with Farage over Brexit, not Corbyn. Does she think her voters are stupid, he asks? Maybe. Or maybe she doesn’t care.
Who she does, without doubt, think are stupid are her Cabinet and Parliamentary Party – and for good reason. She runs rings around them every day.
A few good Tories such as John Redwood and Iain Duncan Smith refuse to succumb to her hegemony. Yesterday the latter wrote that the Government is deeply disingenuous on Brexit..
Will the others ever catch up? Or will they forever be subject to her reign of terror? Or maybe the bombshell of a speech promised by the so summarily sacked former Secretary of State for Defence will trigger her downfall?
Here at TCW we are counting the days.
Today is Day 29 . . .
