Brexit Breakdown is All Theatre

The "Gypsum Lady" Theresa May has no intention of staying strong on Brexit negotiations.  Her job was always to deliver a Brexit deal that was, in effect, no deal. She was to thread the needle that kept the U.K. in the European Union for everything that matters, the customs and trade unions, while selling the … Continue reading Brexit Breakdown is All Theatre
