Becketts Brexit, Part 2

Becketts Brexit

The authority of British Prime Minister May melts faster than a snowball in the sun. And yet it keeps going on and on and on and so on.

The father of the absurd theater, Samuel Beckett, proves to be the most reliable commentator on the Brexit drama these days. “Waiting for Godot” has already been quoted here. The fact that Prime Minister Theresa May now apparently wants to bring her agreement, which has already been rejected twice by a massive majority, to vote for the third time, reminds one of the bitter wisdom of the great writer: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. ”

Today, May wants to offer MEPs a “short, technical” extension of the EU’s exit by June 30, provided that Parliament can agree on a deal in that short time. In order for her to receive an OK from the EU at the summit at the end of next week, she apparently wants to submit her agreement to the vote again.

She will fail again. “No matter how many times she comes with it, we’ll reject that lousy contract,” Hardliner Steve Baker said Wednesday night. His genius, Mark Francois, seconded: “I was not trained in the army to lose.” Although the House of Commons has opposed a Hard Brexit, Brexit-Ultra Jacob Rees-Mogg described himself as “extremely relaxed.”

Unlike the Prime Minister, the relevant part of her conservative party refused to follow. With Sarah Newton May already lost the 15th Cabinet member in 20 months, alone record. Her voice has lost her as well as her party’s voices. Given the fact that Northern Ireland is the supposed sticking point in Brexit, it is a special point that Beckett was an Irishman, who evidently foresaw everything.
