Kiselyov is excellent again here, nailing the truth about how decrepit Europe is these days.
He thinks the political chaos the worst “since the times of WWII”. Merkel, Macron, and May are all in serious trouble, and unable to lead.
Actually, Europe’s political landscape hasn’t been in such a sad state since the times of WWII. See for yourself, on the background of the recent events in France.
The rating of the French people’s trust in President Macron has hit a record low of 18%. Nearly as low as Poroshenko’s. 70% of the French are not content with the government’s policy. It means that France doesn’t have a leader. Bending one finger.
The UK is also without a leader. Never before has Theresa May’s cabinet been in such a tough position. After her aligning the Brexit agreement with the EU, four ministers, associated with the Brexit, left the Cabinet to express their protest. And now, when the British Parliament has started to discuss the document, the MPs blamed Theresa May for lying and hiding the truth about the conditions of the UK’s exit from the EU.
Theresa May has lied before. For example, about Novichok. But for some reason, the MPs got stirred only now. The most blazing speech on the lie belonged to the leader of the parliamentary faction the Scottish National Party, Ian Blackford.
Ian Blackford: “Is it time that the prime minister takes responsibility hiding the facts on her Brexit deal? The prime minister is misleading the house inadvertently or otherwise. The issue of the legal advice on the Brexit showed the facts the government tried to hide.”
The Scot’s anger is shared by a member of the Democratic Unionist Party, Jim Shannon.
Jim Shannon: “The government voted for Northern Ireland to become a mute victim of Great Britain.”
For now, we’re not analyzing this complicated document on the Brexit, which was preliminarily aligned with the EU. We’re simply talking about the reaction Theresa May’s opponents have expressed toward it.
But the reaction was that, on Tuesday, the majority of the MPs in the House of Commons of the British parliament voted to investigate the issue of the Cabinet’s disrespect toward the legislative body.
