An internal EU communiqué from its negotiators to the EU27 member states of the European Council says it is difficult to see how Ms May could still be planning on leaving the two institutions given what she agreed in the early hours of this morning.
The Prime Minister told reporters in Brussels this morning that Britain would still be leaving the single market and customs union, as she had pledged in her Lancaster House speech at the start of the year.
But the joint text she signed up to just minutes earlier pledged that the entire UK would “maintain full alignment with those rules of the Internal Market and the Customs Union” where they were applicable to avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland.
I’ll be charitable. I don’t think she’s a diabolical Machiavelli trying to fool the British people into thinking she’s working for their interests whereas she’s actually working for her own.
I think she’s a dunderheaded twit way out of her intellectual depth, who while meaning well, hasn’t a solitary clue about what she is doing. Besides trying to keep her backside in Downing Street.
I could be wrong. But if I’m right, who needs a twit as a prime minister?
