Apparently The Independent has started copying This Writer’s headline style for its tweets, so I’ve copied this one right back.
The story suggests that any Parliamentary business that might be even remotely damaging to Mrs May or her minority government has been put off until after the party conference season in the autumn.
So This Site urges all of you to take a leaf out of the Liberal Democrat election playbook: Be wicked, act shamelessly, stir endlessly.
If you can find any unacceptable behaviour by a Tory representative, kick up a song and dance about it – especially if it’s an MP.
If a news story reveals wrongdoing as a result of Tory legislation, or because Tories have relaxed regulations, demand answers and call for resignations.
As it is, it seems unlikely Mrs May will get her wish for a quiet time – there’s currently a huge debate about the abuse suffered by MPs and Parliamentary candidates, in which right-wingers are turning out to be the main culprits.
Jeremy Corbyn is touring Tory marginal constituencies and is sure to do all he can to pull the ground out from under Mrs May’s feet in each of his speeches.
The Tory minority government is postponing publication of a report on the funding of radical extremism – why?
A report on possible shocks to the economy is due to be published tomorrow, and will include threats prompted by Brexit. Will the Tories have answers when the criticisms come raining down?
Theresa May is weak and she knows it. The last thing she wants is a hard time.
The last thing the UK needs is for us to make it easy for her.
Theresa May’s aides have cleared the Prime Minister’s way to the summer holidays amid concern that anything controversial could derail the Government.
The publication of contentious reports, tricky legislation and potentially damaging opposition debates have all been put off until after the summer recess and beyond.
While the Ms May’s administration is thought to have escaped immediate danger of a Tory coup or collapse, members of the Government said a “period of calm” would at least help her get to conference season unscathed.

If ever there was a coalition of utter chaos propped up by heavily bribed terrorist sympathisers, this it. She will cling to power with her dirty fingernails to the very end when the people will consign her to the filthiest garbage bin of political history.
May’s tactics? Cowardice? Or just cowardly tactics? Non very appetising. Get her out.
Nice to know that we have a Govt with its finger on the pulse. Is no Govt better than bad Govt?
So the report due to be published tomorrow possibly includes possible outcomes to Brexit? Nothing concrete then just another piece of conjecture, who is responsible for the report, why is it being produced?
Ah our favourite Tory sock poppet pops up must be a slow day at CCHQ, yup says nothing to see here.
Honestly old chap do you get bored parroting pro-tory tosh, in the vain hope you convince anyone your correct around here?
Unscathed, dear me, the scars run too deep for that. People may forget why they were upset at the Tories, but they will not forget they were upset.
