TOASTED: Brexiteers Win The Day As May’s Government Crumbles
Staring a humiliating Commons defeat in the face, the government accepted all four amendments put forward by the Jacob Rees-Mogg-led European Reform Group to the Customs Union aspect of the Chequers Agreement today.
The amendments which commit the UK to a seperate VAT regime and ensure no hard border in the Irish Sea have been accepted alongside Priti Patel’s amendment which vetoes the UK government collecting tariffs unless the EU governments will reciprocate.
Remoaning Tories led by Ken Clarke and Anna Soubry immediately branded the revised plans as “madness” raising the spectre of a Remoaner revolt against the legislation.
Climbing down may have brought the government some time but it is in no means guaranteed to ensure victory in the Commons. This is the essential problem Mrs May now has and why her Premiership is doomed. Concessions she makes will only embolden the ‘other side’ of her warring Party to push further and harder for concessions.
Mrs May is very much in office but not in power. It is only a matter of time before she is completely out of both.
