Theresa May’s Brexit statement was uncomfortable viewing – 26 one-star reviews

by Thepoke

After a day of upheaval following on from three years of upheaval, Theresa May gave a speech to clarify her position, or the UKs position or something or other …anyway, it cleared up precisely nothing. The BBC shared the speech, including this clip.

"You are tired of MPs talking about nothing else but Brexit when you have real concerns about schools, the NHS, knife crime"

That Prime Ministerial statement in full : Nothing. Has. Changed.

Theresa May tells the British People Im on your side” …which side is that? Leave, Remain, or Resign?

The consensus was that she said nothing new, but managed to blame everyone apart from herself, particularly attempting to throw Parliament under the bus – and we can all guess what was written on the side of it. This is how Twitter reacted.

Let me save you time on the May statement with a summary: None of this is her fault, even though shes in charge and has smashed our constitutional setup to smithereens. Everyone is mean to her. Shell tell YOU what you think and you WILL support it. Weird awkward exit. The end. pic.twitter.com/ExofxylXtF

Theresa Mays guide to the absurd.

ABSURD:
The UK voting in the next EU elections

NOT ABSURD:
Food and medicine shortages
Actual lives endangered
Northern Ireland peace threatened
Businesses going to the wall
Job losses
Kent becoming a lorry park
Actual pig shit in the street

Based on that, Theresa Mays understanding of charm offensive doesnt extend beyond offensive.

“And that is what I..am determined…to do.” Really weird robot turn. Goes. Surely, surely:”My names Theresa May. Goodnight!” Really weird robot turn. Goes.

Theresa May to MPs – "It's time to decide."
MPs to Theresa May – "We did. We've already told you to f*** off twice."

Did Theresa May just come out and shout at us and blame everyone else for Brexit but herself? I feel like thats what happened. That is what happened right? Wow.

The most thankless task in politics is trying to figure out what Theresa May really means after she's just made yet another drab Brexit speech. It's pointless. She never really means anything.

Stop retweeting this Theresa May person into my timeline. Giving extremists the oxygen of publicity only feeds the flames

Stay what you like about Theresa May, but when you think shes hit peak banality and stupidity, she goes that extra mile.

Theresa May's incredible ability to use so many words to say so little will surely net her a lucrative post-politics career as an IT strategy consultant

Theresa May's speeches are the Westminster equivalent of office meetings that should have been emails.
