Theresa May declares war on Brussels, urging: 'Let me fight for Britain'
Many commentators have today likened yesterdays performance to that of Donald Trump during the American Presidential election campaign, noting that Theresa May makes all the necessary Trump like allegations and threats but seems to lack confidence in her own remarks.As one commentator put it, "Theresa May is looking and sounding rattled, if not a little unhinged". and it is not difficult to see how he comes to that conclusion.
The reality of course as recognised by most observers, is that Prime Minister May has seized upon the age old tactic of making up a half baked conspiracy theory to distract everyone from her failures,while at the same time seeking to rally electoral support behind a notion of patriotic fervour. Trying to win a general election by creating imaginary enemies is not a new stratagem, but in this case and at this time it is certainly a cynical and arrogant example of contempt towards the British people.
