Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

May's authority in Wetminster has vaporised. When she fires minor members of the Cabinet for making sensible suggestions in the commons while allowing senior members of the Cabinet to rubbish defy her proposals in the newspapers you know you are looking somebody who is in office but not in power.

She only stays on because we are one month away from disaster and nobody wants to left holding the baby. And because no faction wishes to risk putting a member of another faction in the prime minister's seat.

Meanwhile, the smart people are saying that Corbyn's move has freed Labour from having the albatross of brexit hung around its neck. Not the party of Remain, but officially no longer a party of Leave either.

This anchor is the Tories alone.

I've found one article itemizing five (5) amendments to the UK Withdrawal Bill tabled for a vote by 12 March. NONE "expresses the sentiment" of the HOC to revoke the A.50.

Have you any? Let's compare.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

Of course not. You have to read between the lines of a motion voting for a delay.

What's worse is that her authority in Brussels vaporised some weeks ago - when she urged Parliament to vote against aspects of her own deal. No one can be bothered to negotiate with her now. They're not even being polite. Anyone with any self respect would have resigned once her deal was defeated by a record margin. She is a political Zombie now - or a Death Star, if you were looking to her for your own career advancement.

there will be entire careers built upon the pyschologies involved in brexit.

Few will be generous to the brexiteers, but I doubt that any will treat May with anything but utter damnation. Matthew Parris' Death-Star article seems to have unlocked something in the press who now vye with each other to describe her in ever more dismissive terms
