questions to The Prime Minister for the political class in Britain has to date. In the last week of sparring between the Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn had a little more weight than usual, finally, ten politically turbulent days behind on the island.
First, the government made the days-long intense debates about the EU exit of the contract to an end by suspended the planned vote in January. The conservative rebels have failed just with your concerns, Mays, two and a half to make years in office, an end to it. Under the pressure of his own party, the 62 had to-Year-old publicly for the lame duck to explain: The next election is no later than 2022 in the house, won't compete again, she said. In reality, it is considered unlikely that they Christmas 2019 in Downing Street.
Brussels, the Prime Minister returned home empty-handed, the Cabinet approved two billion pounds for emergency measures to be taken against the Chaos-Brexit, of the country at the end of March with no exit agreement in the house. For the initialled contract seem to be fighting only May and her close Team, all other planning for the future.
Actually, rich harvest, so for the Opposition. But the closer the Leaving date gets, the more the disunity in the ranks of the Labour Party. The conditions in the two major parties are a mirror image: On the one hand, the Prime Minister, who goes to Church every Sunday, and tough to your Beliefs holding; against the Brexit agreed, the enthusiastic but mostly Brexit-aging, 125000 members of the shrunken party. Their backbenchers, they are watching with a mixture of gnashing of teeth and contempt, but after the failed coup is no longer in the Hand.
The former Tory MP, and brilliant Times columnist Matthew Parris, wrote in the election campaign of 2017 a Background report about May for the BBC. It stated, self-close Uni friends would use to describe the current Prime Minister as a mystery: "Nobody thought she was stupid, no one found them brilliant. All of the admired assets of your floor and your determination. No one found them to be very communicative or persuasive“. Parris summarized his results this way: He, himself, had once been a Fan and now "upset". Much more important: "hundreds of their colleagues think the same."
slugfest before the holidays
On the other hand, is the leader of the opposition Corbyn his opponent in the faith not to ask. In his case, this is to Believe in the socialism of the 1970s. The 69-Year-old finds well the Brexit – secretly, at least he matches his previous Convictions and his decades-long voting behavior. But he leads a predominantly pro-European party with many Europe-enthusiastic young people, with 540000 members of the largest political grouping in Western Europe. His backbenchers Corbyn, the life-long activists without University degree and vocational training, for completely unable to work but offer no Alternative.
The long-standing backbenchers, who was first elected in the pensioners ' age of 66 years, the party leader, understood politics as a series of protest marches and flaming Speeches in front of like-minded protesters. The duel in Parliament is anathema to him, what one notices in him again and again.
last Wednesday, but the last slugfest before the Christmas holidays, had him written down for the employees of six emotion out of Brexit-questions, the Corbyn also with growing anger recited: Why the government won't finally about the Brexit Treaty to the vote? Why is the Prime Minister of the "No deal"scenario does not give, finally, a cancellation? Why not finally take the field?
fear of responsibility
Logically would have had to lead the Philippika in the motion of censure against the government, would in the case of success for new elections. Prior to that, but Corbyn is reluctant for weeks, because he is afraid of a referendum defeat – and then, a party Congress decision of last autumn, according to the demand for a second Referendum on the official Labour policy would. To avoid Corbyn as he wants anyway any responsibility for the Brexit, the most important Problem of the country for several decades, most of all, the Torys left.
It noted May in their replies, with brutal sharpness, used to do this, but also silly theatre tricks. Corbyn muttered something in his iron-gray Beard, what is read to him by the Conservatives as a "stupid woman" (stupid woman) of the lips and sexism interpreted. In truth, he had spoken of the "stupid people" (stupid people), claimed Corbyn. No matter: What muttered Corbyn in his Beard, interested nobody, as he was still a backbencher. The opposition leader and shadow Prime Minister, is measured with a different measure.More about
