Charlie Mullins today on Theresa May’s Brexit curse, the endless Tory leadership and the Lib Dems’ remontada to stop Brexit.



Theresa May has screwed both Leave and Remain campaigns just by being on their teams.

Yesterday, when challenged over her shitty record at delivering Brexit, Theresa May retorted that if the issue was about her and the way she had voted “... we would already have left the European Union.”

“Actually this is not an issue about me. If it were an issue about me and how I vote, we would already have left the European Union.”

That strucks me as rather bizarre, since she allegedly voted to stay in the EU at the 2016 referendum.

I would also ask what is left of the discredited Leave movement and why they thought putting Mrs May in charge of their baby was a good idea, since she had already proved such an unmitigated failure for the other side.

Anyway, we have a PM who is a two-time loser on the same fight, which is hilarious in a kind of perverse way, especially since we seem to be stupid enough to let her keep her job.

You couldn’t make it up!!


George Osborne is right – The Tories must sack May, but there is a load more rotten apples to dump.

George Osborne is spot on when he says the Tories need a new leader if the party is going to return to relevance.

He told Sky News:

“Eventually the party has to confront the truth. It needs a new leader, a new agenda, it needs to win over supporters who have disappeared and make an appeal to urban, metropolitan Britain that has turned its back on the Conservatives.”

Most are concentrating on the ‘new leader’ bit, but the truth is Mrs May has been doing the bidding of the bad apples since day one. A fat lot of good it has done her, except to destroy her party from the inside.

But if there is any new agenda possible for the Tories before the corpse dies from cataclysmic organ failure they must weed out the rotten apples that have been stinking up the place for years, and have somehow been allowed to degenerate into a foul brew that is poisoning all.


The 2018 Lib Dems Conference was a turning point in the Brexit battle, that is why we are coming back.

Last year was my first time at the Lib Dems conference, and after the time and reception we received, it won’t be the last time either.

Definitely the only place where Remainers didn’t have to congregate in corners and speak in whispers. The voice of decent against the evils of Brexit was everywhere, from the leader to senior members, and all the members.

No tricky manoeuvring or cleverly crafted speeches that don’t quite say one thing or another. The Lib Dems were united behind their policy of doing what they believe is best for the country.

And it was a lot of fun too, so much so that we will be back again in 2019, for what might even be the final days of the Brexit project.

People are beginning to see that fighting with each other over something that doesn’t really matter to most people, and was mis-sold worse than PPI insurance is not the answer.

Genuinely, as we go into this period of Brexit extra-time – courtesy of Mrs May’s incompetence, people are getting a chance to relax and think. Their fervour seems to be ebbing away, as they wonder why they were so pro-Brexit in the first place.

Without the Lib Dems and other freedom fighters, who have been prepared to stand up and not cower to wishes of a few liars and cheats, we would not have managed to withstand Brexit and the fight would be over.

This is a real political party, unlike the stale remnants of past greatness that exist in Labour and the Conservatives.

The Lib Dems are back, and they can be the catalyst for the post-Bollocks to Brexit era.🔷
