May running scared of democracy as she tries to shut down Parliament 5 days early

After squeaking through her Brexit bill this evening in which she fended off a rebellion by the hard-Brexit fringe of her party by surrendering completely to their demands and then barely survived the resulting backlash from remainer Tories – by a mere three votes – Theresa May is now running scared from the UK’s democracy.

Video: May flaps as she’s exposed not knowing or understanding own Chequers Brexit ‘deal’

The BBC’s Andrew Marr is not known for intense, probing questioning of Tory politicians – especially Theresa May – and his interview with her yesterday morning was only fitfully interesting.

Video: extraordinary scenes, House suspended as Raab starts by continuing Tory Brexit chaos

The Tories’ handling of Brexit negotiations and preparations have been marked by persistent incompetence and dishonesty punctuated by moments of utter chaos – of which the shambles of last week’s Chequers ‘agreement’, followed promptly by the resignation of what seemed like half of Theresa May’s front-bench team, was a case study.

Raab new Brexit Secretary. Twitter: ‘One t**t out, one t**t in’

The news breaking on Sunday evening into Monday morning that no fewer than three Tory ministers – including Brexit Secretary David Davis – have resigned in dudgeon over Theresa May’s Brexit weakness will surprise anyone only because Tories tend to threaten but not actually deliver when it comes to rebelling.

Tories’ Brexit incompetence again – they can’t even get Brexit Secretary right

The Tories’ Brexit incompetence has become increasingly transparent uselessness next to the focused, well-prepared professionalism of EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier and his team the longer the negotiation process has gone on.
