The Conservatives have painted themselves into a corner; this simple question reveals their stupidity

Can you believe that Tory rebels have been asked if Theresa May’s resignation would motivate them to support her Brexit deal.

Boris Johnson, Iain Duncan Smith, Jacob Rees-Mogg and others were asked for their opinions in private sessions with Downing Street advisors at a meeting in Chequers over the weekend, it has been alleged.

One has to ask the simple question: Why?

Mrs May’s deal was voted down twice – firstly in the biggest defeat for a sitting government in history, and secondly in the fourth-biggest such defeat – not because it was hers, but because it was bad for the United Kingdom.

Her departure from 10 Downing Street would not make her deal any less dreadful.

Rejecting this offer would show consistency – the MPs concerned don’t like the deal and if Mrs May’s insistence on pursuing it leads to her downfall, that is her problem.

If they decided to accept the offer and support the deal, it would send a resounding message out to the country that these MPs don’t care about the well-being of the UK’s people, but only for their own careers.

Whatever happened, the mere asking of the question shows that the Conservatives still consider Brexit to be an internal party squabble.

It’s yet another misstep in a premiership full of them. How many more times will Theresa May stumble before she finally falls?

    Mike this makes me bloody angry, how dare Rees-Mogg et al put themselves before the Country, it’s time for a General Election. What gets me is they’re open about it, as if they just don’t care, well I bloody well do care.

    as IF? No as if about it. its blatantly obvious they DON’T care about anyone but themselves and the kudos they THINK their jobs give them along with perks that would feed and clothe us lot ten times over(no ive not counted it up but we all know those perks are worth a great deal and they will hang on cos they are scared to death of not getting them any longer).bring on a GE. and hope all those in the top jobs (and some in lesser ones but still with massive perks) lose their seats and they are consigned to the muck heap( ok i know that wont happen unless theres a wall street crash but they will still have their offshore accounts to save them.
