How She Fooled The Public

as Gromit says, she handed the top Brexit jobs to confirmed Brexiteers like Davis and Johnson. That they proved unfathomably useless is hardly her fault, but they got precisely nowhere in their term of office. I find it hard to imagine that she had brighter Brexiters hiding their light under a bushel at the time. So what's a girl to do?
It would not have mattered who was in those posts. The Prime Minister's overriding aim was to keep the UK under EU control, the closer the better. She had no intention whatsoever of presiding over a proper Brexit and this is evidenced by the appalling withdrawal agreement which she thought was perfectly acceptable (x3) to put before Parliament. Because this was quite rightly soundly rejected she suggested that the failure to meet the deadline was the fault of the Commons. It was not. It was due to no proper leaving arrangements having been negotiated and no preparation to walk away when the inevitable unacceptable permission to leave was floated. Since this was "her" deal (with little involvement from her Ministers) it was entirely her fault.
