Serves her right.

On the eve of the UK government triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, notifying the European Union of this nation’s intention to leave, Theresa May released a statement via the ConservativeHome website.

This Writer thinks it would be useful for people to read the responses the article received when it was publicised on Twitter, before reading her actual words. They show the depth of public feeling against what she is doing.

So, when ConHome tweeted the main message – “Now that the decision has been made to leave the EU, it is time to come together” – these are the responses it received:

You can read the thread yourself – most of the comments are in the same vein, making it clear that Brexit is catastrophic for support of the Conservative Party.

Now read on, to see what Mrs May said that has upset them all so much:

“When I sit around the negotiating table in the months ahead, I will represent every person in the whole United Kingdom – young and old, rich and poor, city, town, country and all the villages and hamlets in between.

And yes, those EU nationals who have made this country their home.

It is my fierce determination to get the right deal for every single person in this country.

For, as we face the opportunities ahead of us on this momentous journey, our shared values, interests and ambitions can – and must – bring us together.

We all want to see a Britain that is stronger than it is today. We all want a country that is fairer so that everyone has the chance to succeed.

We all want a nation that is safe and secure for our children and grandchildren. We all want to live in a truly Global Britain that gets out and builds relationships with old friends and new allies around the world.

These are the ambitions of this Government’s Plan for Britain. Ambitions that unite us, so that we are no longer defined by the vote we cast, but by our determination to make a success of the result.

We are one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future.

And, now that the decision has been made to leave the EU, it is time to come together.”
