Now that Theresa May is facing a vote of no-confidence some people out there suggest that the mess we’re in is hardly her fault. Well let me tell those people out there that either you’re more clever than I am or possibly know more than what we all see; here’s what I see;
- Someone in leadership position presiding on a flawed/incompetent no-inclusive process from the get go of triggering article 50; one that is shrouded in secrecy and making every effort to avoid transparency.
- Someone with lack of integrity who never seems to take responsibility of failures but keen to pass the blame around.
- Someone willing to subvert democratic processes like in the last parliamentary election; so rather than getting the message and making amends to ensure all are on board continues on her path by going into a convenient/loose coalition that actually weakens her further.
- Someone not willing to concede that there are going voices demanding a People’s Vote on the agreement and doing everything to avoid it.
The problem as I mentioned in many previous posts is that some continue to focus on the detail rather than the big picture which is why some feel sorry for her and give her a pass, but the big picture covering her direct responsibility in terms of Process, Transparency and Accountability should be the real focus here. Her behaviour is/continues to be disgraceful including her recent statement about the vote of no-confidence. So if the points mentioned above don’t convince you, well probably nothing will so it’s your privilege. The more significant point is that however the results of the vote may be, as I mentioned before this parliament will be unable to fix this BREXIT nugget without the People’s Vote pure/simple.
PS: If I am proven to be utterly wrong and the country manages to find some other way to move forward on a solid foundation (in/out) of the EU, I am good with that too.
