Fast forward 28 years to November 2018, and the we need to ask, do the Tories have the balls to get rid of their weakest link, Theresa May?
She can’t win an Election, she has no authority over her own party and quite frankly, this weak and unstable stubborn woman, who thinks her refusal to drop her doomed deal, is being ‘Resilient’, well Tezza, it’s really not. You are no Iron Lady.
This week, the weak PM revealed her true Brexit hand – a deal that will tie Britain to the EU indefinitely and break up the United Kingdom.
Margaret Thatcher famously ‘got her money back’ from the EU.
In 1980, she called for the UK’s contributions to the then EEC (Now the EU) to be lowered, if not, Maggie warned that she would withhold VAT payments.
“I want my money back!” she screamed, whilst the French Presidents driver revved his engines and began to read a paper.
In the end, Maggie won. She had fight, resilience and refused to back down to the EU.
Theresa has fight, resilience, but she uses that on her own colleages and Brexiteers.
Remainer May voted for Remain, she backed Remain – her deal is a weak soft Brexit deal – and it cannot be accepted.
In 1990, the former secretary of state for the environment challenged Maggie, she said No! No! No! to the planned European Union that would take away Britain’s sovereignty.
Maggie, just like may vowed to “fight on and fight to win” when first challenged.
She won the first round – but not with the required majority, she later resigned, shocking the world that Britain’s Tories had deposed their greatest leader since the War.
