Theresa May is still lying to the public about the forthcoming Brexit negotiations.

Her latest speech, today (May 30), included the following line: “Last night showed that Jeremy Corbyn’s minders can put him in a smart blue suit for an interview with Jeremy Paxman but, with his position on Brexit, he will find himself alone and naked in the negotiating chamber of the European Union.”

Skipping over the clear indication that she is hurting after Corbyn’s thundering victory over her in the Paxman interviews/debate yesterday, the comment shows that Mrs May is still trying to mislead us all about Brexit.

For a start, Jeremy Corbyn would not be negotiating for the UK if Labour wins the general election – just as Mrs May would not, if the Conservatives win.

Sir Keir Starmer would negotiate for Labour; David Davis would be the Conservatives’ choice. Faced with a decision between the two, This Writer would far rather have the respected former Director of Public Prosecutions fighting our corner, rather than the disgrace who allegedly tried to grope Diane Abbott in a corner of a House of Commons bar.

Mrs May’s speech also distracts from the facts of her own Brexit strategy. Fortunately, we have the following, from Ian Dunt of politics.co.uk, to help us out:

It says: “So what can we learn about May’s negotiating tactics over Brexit from the way she has handled this election? She makes spur-of-the-moment decisions for which she has not prepared. She is a control freak who receives too little advice from outside her immediate circle. She pays insufficient attention to limitations in her operational capacity. She does not stress-test ideas before implementing them. When the ideas then fall apart she quickly capitulates, but even then is unable to halt the bleeding. She U-turns in a way which maximises the humiliation but does not close down the issue. She makes promises which will do little to benefit her but which make her disproportionately vulnerable in other areas. She diminishes her reputation with the very people she most needs on side in order to placate those who she already has on side. She adopts a strategy upon which she is unable to deliver.”

She adopts a strategy upon which she is unable to deliver.

Do we really want this woman and her party negotiating the UK’s departure from the European Union?

Of course not!

Vote Labour on June 8 – for the sake of good international relations.
