Katie Perrior refused to help Theresa May fight the 2017 general election. Now she is trying to defend the embattled PM against the public’s wrath [Image: PR Week].

A woman who quit as one of Theresa May’s most senior advisors in April – without explanation – has begged the public to “stop trolling” the embattled excuse for a prime minister, and let her get on with her job.

Katie Perrior told Talk Radio presenter Paul Ross: “We need to stop with the abuse, we need to stop trolling our politicians on Twitter.”

She is, of course, completely wrong.

The reason Theresa May is receiving abuse from the public is very simple: Theresa May is the worst excuse for a prime minister we have ever suffered.

She called a snap election in the belief that she would be returned to Parliament with a huge majority – and had her backside handed to her on a plate instead. That was a major miscalculation, unworthy of any resident of 10 Downing Street.

Consequently, Mrs May is spending £1 billion of our money – yours and mine – bribing the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland to support her.

But Ms Perrior said, “there is no money, people need to realise that”. So her credibility is doubtful.

She appealed to our emotions, saying, “”She [May] would be devastated right now.” So what? Mrs May gambled with the future of the country, and made a fool of herself. If she insists on staying in Downing Street, supported by her ragtag gang of brainless wonders, she’ll make us all look like fools.

And Ms Perrior insisted that that “people need to get real” and allow Mrs May to do her job.” In that, and only that, she was correct.

But there is only one part of her job that any of us should expect Mrs May to carry out now: Her resignation, and decision to dissolve her pathetic attempt at a government.

The only way we can have any kind of “strong and stable” government – as Mrs May herself described it – is by holding another general election and electing a Labour government.
