Many of the people who voted for her didn’t do so because they wanted or expected her to do things like this, they just wanted what they voted for in the EU referendum. The official result was ‘leave,’ so I acknowledge that they’re right to feel aggrieved.
She campaigned on Brexit and very little else. Brexit will very soon be old news for the majority of the population. No more opinions sought or involvement in decisions from anyone except conservative MPs. So Ms Atherton must find some other sound bites. She certainly doesn’t seem to be capable of more than that.
I don’t think that she’ll come out looking good even on the one thing that propelled her to the seat – brexit. The promise she put forward was to ‘get brexit done.’ The reality is more likely to be as described by one senior government member :
“It is also true that the single market is of considerable value to many UK companies and consumers, and that leaving would cause at least some business uncertainty, while embroiling the Government for several years in a fiddly process of negotiating new arrangements, so diverting energy from the real problems of this country – low skills, low social mobility, low investment etc – that have nothing to do with Europe.”
Can anybody guess who said these wise words? A clue – it was the person who has just won an election on the back of this promise to get brexit done.
