It is one thing to commit political suicide but Theresa May is taking things a stage further. Love her or hate her she is surely a brave, intelligent and clever woman so why would she allow herself to become the instrument of what is about to happen. Mention D-Day and all minds are cast back to the Normandy Landings which, as far as the Western Allies were concerned, the beginning of the end of WW2 and a fanatical dictatorship that threatened democracy.
There is another D-Day looming that threatens to be the Darkest Day in our history because it will mark the end of democracy, as we know it in this country. Does the PM really want history to record her as the engineer of such an appalling crime? Her only salvation is to deliver Brexit on the 29 March and she must surely be aware of that. That is what she promised, that is what the people voted for and that was the only possible democratic outcome. To do that, she would be home and dry without anyone being able to fault the outcome…a 'no deal' rather than a 'bad deal' and a new beginning for a country that can still find its own way in this world.
Unless she is without pride and self-respect, she is about to step into a Blair type wilderness where she will grieve until her dying day. I just cannot for the life of me understand why she would want to do that to herself.
