Corbyn catches the spirit of Brexit, then terror strikes

A complete upset and a Corbyn victory of any kind, such as a hung parliament will be a tremendous blow against her ‘hard and dirty Brexit’ – and could open the way for a more creative relationship with the European Union. As Theresa May’s election strengthens opposition to her within the Tory Party and across the country, and breathes a new form of life into the Labour Party, her control over the meaning of Brexit has been badly damaged. What Brexit means is no longer just up to her. A process I thought would start only five to ten years hence might begin within a week.

The Brief: Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ raises doubts over EU’s unity

There is already a special place reserved in Hell for Donald Trump. If Theresa May isn’t careful she will find herself next to him, his hand clasping hers, as they endure an eternal, infernal press conference.

May’s refusal to condemn Trump’s US travel ban on people from seven Muslim majority countries, which, like Peter denying Jesus, she repeated three times, ruined the afterglow of her visit to Washington DC.

May makes great play of being a vicar’s daughter. What would her father think of such squirming appeasal?
