Have you considered the likenesses between May and Merkel?
Both lead a country but the lack the support of their party and country.
Both have made drastic errors that have doomed their countries.
As May leads a minority government, their is ONLY reason I can think of for May's betrayal of the population is that she thinks that by giving Labour what they want, she can draw voters away from Labour. This is a stupid move, as their are fewer people voting for Labour now than in the past three decades.
By telling her MPs who voted for Brexit to back her or stand down, she is taking a big risk, the Conservatives are only power with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party.
I suspect I am like many people in the UK, to whom this decision came as no surprise.
