What an almighty mess. Theresa May is clinging to office and is trying to stitch together a deal with the Northern Ireland Democratic Unionist Party to give her an overall and workable majority.
I wrote here that she should go. Few think she’ll still be Prime Minister by the end of the year and she may be forced out well before that. Power and authority have drained away from her.
What’s of overwhelming importance, however, is the national interest. There are two points to make on that.
The first is that there is only one issue that matters right now, over and above the likely or desirable removal of Mrs May. It is the need to ensure that the will of the people is done and that Britain exits the European Union.
Remainers who want to overturn the referendum result by stealth think the general election result offers them an opportunity to do just that. That’s what all the talk of settling for the “compromise” of “soft” Brexit is all about.
