If that’s a thing, I think it is a fitting description of Theresa May.
Some thoughts on why, for all the spectacle of being a lone figure battling on all sides, May does not deserve a nation’s sympathy. /1
All throughout this process, and Brexit is very a much a process (to which I will return), there have been a series of choices. At each turn, May has made very poor choices.
It is those choices which have led us to the precipice on which we sit as a nation today. /2
Of those choices, to my mind, it is the failure of transparency which has had the most serious ramifications.
Indeed, it can’t even be described as a failure of transparency.
It was a conscious choice in May’s part to keep reality cloaked in darkness during her premiership. /3
