每日新闻更新 — 一个能把事情弄得更糟的天才 The Daily Update – A Genius When It Comes To Making Matters Worse

在跟名字决定论进行的抗争中,五月份也许永远不会是特蕾莎·梅(Theresa May)的月份(梅首相的姓May刚好和英文五月份的May相同,此处为双关语:译者注)。随着欧盟议会选举的临近对脱欧的担心再次加剧,随着英镑从1.31降至1.27,昨天,梅首相在抛出她的修改后的协议的同时,还大胆地向议员提出要让他们对是否举行第二次全民公投进行一次投票表决。《星期日泰晤士报》的政治编辑蒂姆·希普曼(Tim Shipman)在推特上写道:“特蕾莎·梅的演讲听起来就像一个被绑架的受害者在宣读绑架者的要求”。

和预见的一样,从外汇市场死猫式反弹的情况来看,相信特蕾莎·梅的脱欧协议的情况只持续了一个多小时,国会议员立即批评这份协议空洞乏味,并对首相进行了抨击,有一名议员说,梅是“一个能把事情弄得更糟的天才”。(由脱欧强硬派组成的)“欧洲研究组织”(ERG)一致同意将投票反对这项协议,民主统一党(DUP)也是如此;甚至连亲密的盟友也在呼吁把这份无望通过的协议撤下来,但是现在看起来唐宁街还想再努力一把,也许只是为了一个简单的目标 —“尝试一下在梅首相下台之前他们认为应该做的事情”。

但是,首相可能没有机会举行这次投票,因为保守派的几个团体要求党员/读者明天不要投保守党的票,除非梅首相今天就走人,同时,“1922年委员会”的奈杰尔·埃文斯(Nigel Evans)今天下午4点将推动对该规则的改变,以便他们能够立即举行另一次不信任投票。但是,欧洲议会议员丹尼尔·汉南(Daniel Hannan)警告说,“对就要离职的首相落井下石会迎来一个科尔宾政府,我们面临这个风险。”

许多人现在期望,在明天的欧洲议会选举中,不管保守党的表现如何,“做了人质的”梅首相(对英国脱欧的理想派和政党政治来说)将会在星期日(欧洲议会选举结果发布之日)之前下台。根据众多的民意调查,有大批受挫的脱欧派正在支持英国脱欧党(Brexit Party),这个比例接近40%,与此同时,一些民意调查显示,保守党的支持率只有7%,几乎和只有3%的变革英国党(Change UK)一样糟糕,主要政党分享了留欧派的支持。因此,除了对英国脱欧担心之外,市场还将关注工党如何从(选民)对保守党的屠杀中获渔翁之利,同时也将关注谁会从保守党的内斗中胜出。
