Theresa May has failed to offer sound leadership in this toxic Brexit phase | Phillip Lee2h Theresa May has failed to offer sound leadership in this toxic Brexit phase | Phillip Lee
The PM has brought us to this crisis with a series of calamitous decisions How has it come to this? Theresa May and her husband, Philip, have long been friends of mine and I have in the past admired her sense of duty and commitment to her party and her country. So it grieves me that her stubborn choices have left both in peril. At a time when our politics needs statesmanship, not brinkmanship, when our divided people need time to heal and come back together, and when our country needs honest leadership rooted in reality not ideology, Mrs May has embraced division. Rather than providing the calm, compassionate and unifying leadership we so desperately needed after a divisive EU referendum campaign, she rushed to own Brexit. She has clung to power in the process, but she is letting us all down.
