May is seeking a short extension to Brexit. How utterly contemptuous

There are only so many times you can - or should - give someone the benefit of the doubt. In asking Donald Tusk and the European council for a ludicrous, pointless extension just until June, Theresa May has surrendered any right to be seen as a prime minister acting in good faith.

The truth is that deep down we all - even those of us who have up till now given her the benefit of the doubt - know why. She has done this now because she cannot let go of the idea that she may yet triumph in her borderline abusive relationship with parliament and the country. Failing that, she hopes to place the blame for a long extension on everyone except herself.

 

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
