Zombie Brexit: ‘It’s like the living dead in here’

Theresa May: Dead woman walking [Art: Dave Brown].

It’s hardly encouraging, in the run-up to the vote on Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, that her own cabinet ministers were allegedly saying her government is “like the living dead”.

Some of us have been criticising her as a zombie prime minister for many months, of course.

While she dithered and delayed on Brexit, the important issues of the day – the increasing impoverishment of working people, the years-long and genocidal attack on benefit claimants (in particular the sick and disabled), the assault on pensioners, the starvation of school pupils (deprived of school meals and of the funds to support their education), the privatisation of the National Health Service, the continued sale of national assets to the private sector so they fall into the hands of large and foreign-owned businesses, the continuing lack of a government in Northern Ireland, and others (no doubt you can name several yourself) – have gone unanswered.

Now Mrs May has announced she will resign as prime minister before the next stage of Brexit, meaning the huge distraction of another Tory leadership contest. And will a future Tory prime minister feel the need to gain a mandate by holding a general election? It’s unlikely as Tories don’t like democracy at the moment, but you never know.

We are being ruled by zombies. I suppose we should just be glad they haven’t actually tried to eat our brains – yet.

    Maybe she is trying to ensure that whoever takes over this crock of excrement will never succeed or shine as doing a better so called job than she has. I blame the civil servants who knocked this deal together on her Governments behalf where self preservation is extremely high on their list.
