Why Can't May Cosy Up To Trump Like Macron Did?

What I find fascinating is the difference in tone many of these publications took when covering Theresa May's visit to Washington in January. Then, a leader of a large European country with a surprisingly fragile economy cosying up to Trump was seen as desperate. Now, it's being portrayed as a bromance. Why?

Things clearly need to change and I know I'm not alone in thinking this; people are beginning to put their foot down and say enough is enough. So despite my major fears for a Tory/DUP coalition, I am incredibly excited to see the positive impact of a new meaning of 'people power'. We won't let them get away with any old policies anymore!

She could tackle low pay and workplace exploitation in order to deal with worries about migrant labour undercutting domestic labour - rather than smashing trade unions and presiding over a record drop in wages. She could accept that there will always be people overseas whose help our economy needs, as well as those in desperate need of our help - and set targets based on national interest, not more made-up numbers. But instead, she prefers to make promises she knows she cannot keep.

Parliament was rarely so united as before the election call. The two leading parties were on the same side, Both are committed to Brexit. Both want a good deal for Britain. May is the leader of the country. So why does May want to be stronger and more stable? It neither makes sense nor sound reasoning. Surely there is another agenda. Is it about whose interests will be protected in the negotiation?

No-one expects that the next Government will have an easy time. But remarkably, despite an almost inevitable backdrop of more cuts in public services, politicians are queuing up to embrace the ongoing festering sore of more delays and more billions on a project, only wanted by those planning to rake in those billions. All the evidence shows HS2 will be a disaster, but what do politicians care about evidence?

I'm going to take a deep breath, count to ten, and try very hard to pretend that the people who are running the country are grown-ups. I'm going to resist all Shakespearian allusions and attempt to negotiate a path through the wreckage that now passes for the British political scene.
