Theresa May: As dangerously insane as a supervillain like the Joker?

This is psychotic.

It is being reported that Theresa May is planning to “engineer a financial crash” to bully MPs into supporting her Brexit deal.

The idea is that, if she loses a first vote on her Brexit deal, she will encourage a crash in the financial markets – purely to encourage MPs to support her lame deal.

That’s right – it seems she is deliberately considering trashing the UK’s economy (more than she’s trashed it already, even), ending jobs (which were probably only part-time/zero-hours/limited contract pseudo jobs anyway) and curbing our already-limited productivity, for no other reason than to keep herself in 10 Downing Street.

It’s pure “shock doctrine” – as defined by the Urban Dictionary: “The strategy by the world’s economic elites of imposing an extremely neoliberal economic regime on communities they control, using some form of shock: a natural disaster, a coup d’etat, a war, a financial crisis, etc. Once the community has been crippled by this first shock, the economic “reforms” [embodied in this case by Brexit] are imposed suddenly, creating a secondary blow.”

It is also despotism – deliberately inflicting suffering on the citizens of the UK in order to stay in power corruptly.

This Writer has little reason to believe that Conservative MPs have the moral backbone to understand why this is wrong, let alone stand up against it. The DUP – the Tories’ partner-in-crimes-against-the-people for the last year and a half – may withdraw its support, though, and the other parties should never accept it.

So it may never happen.

But the fact that it has even been suggested means it could – and that is a horrifying admission in the country that is home to the “Mother of Parliaments”.
