How much longer will Theresa tolerate the three backstabbing Brexiteers?

Post by Irn Bru on Sun Sep 25, 2016 10:44 pm

Downing Street has already been forced to publicly rebuke Boris Johnson, David Davis and Liam Fox.

When Theresa May appointed Boris Johnson, David Davis and Liam Fox to her cabinet, there was much talk of her political savvy. The prime minister, it was said, had embraced the Pottery Barn rule: "you break it, you own it". Rather than handing key posts to Remainers, she charged the Leavers with making Brexit work.

But this theory was always overplayed. As an interventionist prime minister, it was May herself who would lead the epic task of withdrawal (a point she underlined by taking charge of a Brexit cabinet committee). Her decision to nevertheless hand significant responsibility to the Leavers would, some warned, undermine her.

The sceptics are now claiming vindication. Since becoming prime minister two months, Downing Street has been forced to publicly rebuke each of the three Brexiteers. Johnson, to the surprise of some, completed the hat-trick last night. After stating that the UK would trigger Article 50 "in the early part of next year" and suggesting that withdrawal could completed before the two-year deadline, the Foreign Secretary was swiftly admonished. "The decision to trigger Article 50 is hers," a No.10 source said. "She will be doing it at a time when she believes it is in the best interest for Britain."

Is Theresa stringing the country along with article 50 getting pushed into the long grass for a while? We'll se as the Tories end up like rats in a sack over Europe just like they alwas do.

It doesn't seem to be happening.
