A never-end­ing ar­gu­ment

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LETTERS -

Af­ter four decades of EU mem­ber­ship, the UK voted in a ref­er­en­dum to end their re­la­tion­ship with the EU once and for all. Af­ter months of tough ne­go­ti­a­tions with the Euro­pean Union in Brussels to bring about a good BREXIT deal, very few Con­ser­va­tive MPs are op­ti­mistic that Bri­tain’s Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May could face down her sav­age crit­ics – led mainly by Boris John­son. Un­for­tu­nately, and to my per­sonal re­gret, this is go­ing to be a time of po­lit­i­cal dan­ger for Theresa May be­cause she may lose her job as prime min­is­ter.

Con­ser­va­tive MPs in UK have been putting spokes in the wheels for quite some time now. Their only de­sire is to top­ple Theresa May from her post as prime min­is­ter of Great Bri­tain. In an ar­ro­gant and sav­agely knit­ted method, they slammed Theresa May’s BREXIT deal by call­ing it a com­plete sur­ren­der to the EU.

Dur­ing a bruis­ing ses­sion in the Com­mons, Con­ser­va­tive back­benchers and ex min­is­ters branded the deal as an ab­so­lute shame on Theresa May and on the gov­ern­ment she leads.

In a bid to win sup­port from Bri­tish cit­i­zens, Theresa May is mak­ing a des­per­ate dash around UK for her BREXIT deal to be ap­proved with one goal in mind – to de­liver on the ref­er­en­dum in a way that brings the UK to­gether again.

Un­for­tu­nately for Mrs May, there is a web of con­spir­acy by at least NINE ex min­is­ters and sev­eral MPs ma­noeu­vring to top­ple her, led by Boris John­son. Ex min­is­ters like John­son are say­ing that May’s deal can­not pro­vide as­sur­ance to busi­ness be­cause it is a huge gam­ble. The para­dox at the heart of BREXIT is only now be­com­ing ap­par­ent. It was bru­tally ex­posed by John­son him­self when he handed in his res­ig­na­tion a few weeks ago.

Ev­ery­one seems to be dis­sat­is­fied... No room left for rec­on­cil­i­a­tion... Ap­par­ently, the BREXIT ar­gu­ment is go­ing to con­tinue for­ever... Jos Ed­mond Zarb Birkirkara
