HUMPHRYS BLASTS MAY: You’re Not Listening!
It has to be said that the Prime Ministers promised ‘tour’ to ‘open a national conversation’ about her wretched Withdrawal Agreement has been nothing of the kind. Basically, it has consisted of her sofa-surfing and channel-hopping from one radio/tv show to the next.
However, it has been refreshing to see her roasted and toasted by members of the public and hosts alike. John Humphrys is the latest. Confronting May, he said; “Do you really believe you can get that through on Tuesday? Because what a lot of people say is, clearly, the Prime Minister has worked very very hard at this, she believes in what she’s doing, she has been very, very persistent. The problem is she isn’t listening to any of the other arguments. That’s your difficulty.”
She claimed she has been listening: “We have been listening which is why we have been very careful about elements of the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration for the future that we have negotiated. Take an issue that was of great concern for the people of the UK when we went into the European Economic Community in the first place, how our fishermen had been dealt with. I’ve listened very carefully to the fishing community, to colleagues, to members of Parliament who represent seats with real fishing interests about the importance of that. That’s why we have rigorously and robustly defended our fishing industry in the negotiations we have had. And we’ll continue to do so.”
Obviously, no one has been listening to grassroots organisations like Fishing For Leave:
FFL speaking to the Fisheries Bill Committee
Govt White Paper had noble aspirations which gave many hope
Sadly they have disappeared from the Bill
Govt can say it will fulfill it’s White Paper promises, sadly this govts promises have little currency 👇https://t.co/0wjEaBdkJ6

It is truly a measure of the PM’s desperation that reports indicate today the vote itself may have to be postponed.
