George Galloway: Jeremy Corbyn has played a 'blinder' during Brexit negotiations

Thursday, November 15, 2018

George Galloway believes Theresa May is “very unlikely” to last the week, and “might not even” last the day as Prime Minister following her Brexit withdrawal backclash.

The talkRADIO presenter called her divorce bill the “worst in history” as she presented the bill to cabinet ministers on Wednesday evening and the rest of parliament on Thursday morning.

Joining Mike Graham, Galloway said that if Michael Gove was the next to resign from the cabinet – following the resignations of Dominic Raab and Esther McVey - that it would mean the government has “fallen.”



“This is the worst divorce deal in history,” he said.

“Not only does she get to keep the house, the kids, the money, the record colllection but you have to sign to say that you won’t remarry anybody else, and nobody in the House of Commons can with their hand on their heart say that this honours the decision in the referendum in 2016, it is toast.”

The Prime Minister has come under increasing scrutiny, as Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has become the next high profile politician to file a motion of no confidence in Ms May, putting her job at jeopardy.

 “It’s very unlikely that she will last the week, she might not even last the day,” added Galloway.

“I’d be astonished if there were not now, either a very close to or actually the 48 to trigger a vote of no confidence, in which case the Tories will hope to put the humpty dumpty back together again with a different Prime Minister with the Tories still in power.”

“Mrs Thatcher won her no confidence motion too, but it didn’t save her, if the level of votes against Theresa May were in to the three figures, in practice, in real political terms it’s impossible for her to continue.”


Corbyn has played a ‘blinder’


Jeremy Corbyn is set to vote against Theresa May's deal as it fails to pass the Labour Party's six tests, and George Galloway believes the Labour leader has played a 'blinder' during the Brexit negotiations.

“Jeremy Corbyn has played a blinder, as you should never interrupt your enemy while they’re making a mistake, he’s now presiding over a House of Commons where the Conservatives are not fighting like ferrets in a sack but tigers in a sack, tearing each other to pieces. Throughout the Brexit campaign, I was certain that this referendum - and it’s fallout - would destroy the Conservative party and that is being vindicated now, it might also break up the Labour party, which is no bad thing.”

 “The best way by far is to have a general election, elect a new government and then that government would then have the authority to negotiate and settle.”
