I think Theresa May is betraying our country. I would like to see her removed from office as soon as possible.
On November 7th I wrote to my MP, a Conservative:
There are reports in the media that Mr. Gove is pressing for the Cabinet to see the full legal advice about the Irish ‘backstop’.
It is shocking and frightening that the Cabinet should be refused this advice. How can they make a decision, how can they fully accept collective responsibility, if they are only given a summary as has been suggested?
This is looking like government by Prime Ministerial diktat rather than Cabinet government. That is not what I was taught is the UK system in my A Level politics course.
As you know, I think the Conservative MPs should remove Mrs. May from office.
From where I stand it looks as if she is ignoring Cabinet government when it suits her. It’s only a few months ago that she was running a separate Brexit policy without keeping Mr. Davis fully informed. And remember that she went to see Mrs. Merkel before the now famous Chequers meeting of the Cabinet. And now she is slow to release legal advice to the Cabinet.
How much more like this are you and your colleagues willing to take?
If, on a political level, you think she is an asset then I would ask you all to remind yourselves of the 2017 General Election campaign when so many candidates were ‘standing with Theresa May’. That campaign was not a success.
Mrs. May should be removed from office, and if you don’t do it, be sure that the voters will remove her, the Conservative government and scores of Conservative MPs.
