Coali­tion of chaos

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Theresa May spent much of the elec­tion cam­paign at­tack­ing the so-called coali­tion of chaos but it is her prom­ise to de­liver sta­bil­ity which is now in tat­ters.

Re­ly­ing on the sup­port of the Demo­cratic Union­ist Party lacks all cred­i­bil­ity. The DUP is a re­ac­tionary party. The peo­ple of North­ern Ire­land op­posed Brexit and on that is­sue, as with many oth­ers, the DUP has no ba­sis for claim­ing it rep­re­sents their views.

Even then, agree­ment be­tween the Tories and DUP on what form Brexit should take is un­likely.

Stripped of any man­date for a hard Brexit and hav­ing lost all cred­i­bil­ity do­mes­ti­cally, abroad, and even within her own party, Theresa May should jump be­fore she is pushed. Kevin Buchanan Scot­tish TUC
