Theresa May: She looks like a horse, bridling at the EU’s rejection of her plan.

Faced with an absolute refusal of her useless ‘Chequers’ plan from the EU, Theresa May has doubled down on her own position – with a public statement that piles embarrassment upon humiliation.

She said this:

And this:

I don’t often swear on This Site but I am sure you will understand me when I say: What a bag of sh*t.

What was she trying to achieve with this broadcast? One look at the two Union Flags behind her and you’re thinking of nationalistic pride. Defiance, perhaps? “Britain stands alone”? The “Dunkirk spirit”?

But this is not defiance. This is petulance.

And it is stupidity:

Commentators from all sides have piled in to pour ridicule on Mrs May’s latest attempt to appear strong:

She did insult them; she said she would be a “bloody difficult woman” – right, Angela Rayner?

Right. Tom Pride has put her behaviour in a nutshell:

Is that respect? No.

Her demand that the EU propose a solution to Brexit’s insoluble problems is laughable.

So, what are we to conclude?

That seems clear.

Leaders and representatives of other political parties had their say, too:

It hasn’t all been condemnation, though. Look at the state of this Express headline:

The facts tell a different story, though:

This is true. Every time Mrs May opens her mouth, she makes the entire country poorer.

And Britons living in the EU remain in limbo. What will happen to them? Or don’t they count to Mrs May?

Add it all up and the effect of her little speech is not Churchillian but evokes lines from Shakespear instead:

“A tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
