It may be a Bank Holiday, but Brexit still lumbers on.
Our MPs, bless them, have been having a rest after all their hard work huffing and puffing at each other. Meanwhile, Nigel Farage has launched his new Brexit Party and a poll this week showed that they and UKIP would get significant numbers of votes in the European Elections due on 23rd May.
I am dumbfounded as to how UKIP manages to get supporters when one of their candidates said that he “would not even rape” the Labour MP Jess Phillips. He has refused to apologise and the UKIP leader has also said it was an acceptable thing to say because it was “satire”. If that’s satire and acceptable, then I’m an alien and I, for one, would be happy to put the whole of UKIP into my spaceship and send them into oblivion in a never-ending journey into outer space. At least they will be free of Europe, so they’ll probably like it.
Over at Tory Party HQ, they will be scratching their heads this morning after a poll yesterday revealed that more than half the people who voted for the Conservatives in the last election will not do so again, simply because of the way the party has handled Brexit.
And in another office in downtown London, Labour Party grandees are in a quiver because of an article by Deputy Leader, Tom Watson, who (in a seeming bid to wrench the leadership from Jeremy Corbyn) said that the party should now back a second referendum on Brexit.
But it is not just the party officers in those Labour and Conservative offices who should be worried. We should all be concerned.
Because Mrs May has spent the last week on a walking holiday in Wales. The last time she did that she got back to Number 10 and announced that she’d had a brainwave whilst out walking, and called a General Election.
I wonder on earth what her brainwave will be when she gets back from her walking holiday this time?
We’ll all find out tomorrow…!
