In spite of the fibbing of Remoaners, 68% of voters still want Brexit and they want it as soon as possible, reports YouGov. This has not changed since October. Only one in five is happy with the way Theresa May’s government is handling Brexit. (That is 18%). There has also been huge criticism of the way she handled the victory of Donald Trump. May has been churlish and rude to Nigel Farage regarding his offers of help. It is understandable she does not want to fire Sir Kim Darroch, but she could make Nigel a special envoy or second him to work with David Davis. May was eleventh in the list of PMs who received a telephone call from the President Elect. It is a good sign that of all the Foreign Secretaries in the world, Boris Johnson was number one on the list of the VP Elect, Mike Pence.
But for the good of the country, May should be making more effort to build bridges with the US.
