Everyone’s having a Sunday morning say on it but perhaps we should consider these:
We’re talking about the confidence vote there, not the leadership challenge. Now to the latter:
All right, let’s say the 48 letters arrive and the vote of confidence is triggered.
She wins – then her betrayal goes through unless Brussels flatly refuses it or the Brexiteers finally decide to bring down the government over the betrayal, knowing they can’t re-challenge her within a calendar year.
However, there is another way – her branch deselect her.
She loses – new leader voted for by PP and that means a Remoaner.
Now, she’s clearly as confident as can be this morning and she’d only be that if her number crunchers had told her she has the numbers. Hence the bullishness.
Or else the whole game plan is for her to go down, taking one for the globalist team, then in comes the new real government, given that their original plan was that all would be revealed by 2020. So we either get NWO by seeming cataclysm … or by stealth. Which do we want?
Or else the “walk away” was Brussels’s plan all along, so they can now crash the UK economy with Carney’s and other help.
Or else May and predecessors had actually gone into hock to certain moneylenders who will certainly now crash the economy. Anyone remember the Bank of England being brought down? Maybe May knows all this, can say nothing about someone out there bankrolling the migrant benefit and NHS care receivers and is pushing this lukewarm deal she thinks will stave off the inevitable, making her a heroine, not a villain – just a thought.
Now to the Freeborn Johns among us and all power to their arms – but the game in town is still Westminster for the foreseeable. There’s no GE for now, those staying away achieve nothing. There’ll be council elections. The game is still Westminster in most Brits’ minds, whatever we think. One thing the Tories do well is number crunch.
However, the people are riled and so, if JRM or DD or AJ do move to split, then it’s game on. But would they? Would they not just grumble away on the backbenches? Have they the spine to truly put the country first?
Let’s say they do and a huge number flock – all the kippers, new people who haven’t voted before, etc. etc. – who is arrayed against them? Tories, Labour, Lib Dems and all their supporters. DUP? Who knows?
