It’s a sign of a weak government when they call election after election.

But then, we know Theresa May’s government is so weak it is run by Arlene Foster, the far-right-wing leader of the Northern Irish DUP.

That, it seems, is what may lead to the UK’s salvation from these Conservative creeps.

The UK’s membership – or not – of the EU customs union is critical to the question of whether a hard border will have to be re-established in Northern Ireland.

Whatever the Tories decide among themselves, the DUP would not allow it.

And with the Lords rejecting huge chunks of Mrs May’s EU Withdrawal Bill, the situation seems to have become entirely unmanageable.

Will it topple Theresa May? I don’t know.

But, with the Tories so weak, I would suggest we watch for an upscaling of media attacks on the Labour Party – for the obvious reason.

Tories love hanging on to power. If they trigger an election among themselves – with a “no confidence” vote against Mrs May – then the only way they’ll swing an election in favour of the party with a new leader will be by using their puppets in the right-wing press to undermine Jeremy Corbyn.

If that happens, those on the Left – of good conscience – will need to be ready to fight these claims, tooth and claw.

And we’ll need to have thrown out anyone who undermines Labour from the inside.

Conservative MPs are bracing themselves for another snap general election amid fears the problems of Brexit will topple Theresa May, it has been reported.

Back benchers went home and urged their local associations to re-adopt them as candidates after a meeting in Downing Street this week about customs after Brexit, according to the Sunday Times.

It comes amid a bitter row in the party over whether the UK should adopt a closer ‘customs partnership’ regime with the EU or a more distant ‘maximum facilitation’ system.

One Tory said rather than be reassured by the Downing Street meeting they came out expecting Mrs May to face a vote of no confidence after repeated parliamentary defeats.
