It goes without saying that UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, has had a tough week or so. Being in the latter stages of Brexit negotiations, May has travelled the world to finalise details of her proposed deal.
The Conservative leader delayed a parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal this week, having come under great criticism by pretty much everyone.
Having visited Netherlands, Germany and Brussels, May has had her fair share of limo rides. However, yesterday’s trip was by far the most dramatic.
According to reporters, Theresa May was locked inside of her limousine in Germany for a brief while. Locked in the car in front of German leader, Angela Merkel, May was apparently locked in the car for over 10 seconds, with her team having to prise the door open. When finally released, the Prime Minister enjoyed a friendly handshake with Merkel, appearing pretty relieved to be free.
Bedecked in Britain’s Union Flag, the limousine understandably caught the attention of the press, with this awkward encounter publicised to the masses.
It has now been announced that May’s Brexit deal has been pushed back to the House of Commons “before January 21”. A spokesperson claimed that May will review the “spirit” of the EU Withdrawal Act by then. However, Commons authorities suggested that the a deal may to be reached until as late as March 28th; the day before Brexit is scheduled.
There has now been many calls for Theresa May to stand down as Prime Minister. Former Minister, Steve Baker, says it is her “duty” to stand down:
“The Prime Minister believes it is her duty to deliver on the will of the British people and take us out of the EU.”
Mr Baker told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:
“If we can’t go forwards with her deal … then I’m afraid the only way to change the policy is to change the Prime Minister, and I really think it’s her duty to go.”
Let us know what you think. Is a dodgy child lock on a limo the least if May’s problems?
