Why Is Theresa May Still Pledging Anything?

This all seems rather ridiculous. If not in fact absurd:

Theresa May is to commit Britain to spending the £14 billion foreign aid budget only on environmentally friendly schemes. Downing Street said that the promise would mean that “every penny” of UK support for developing countries will be in line with “climate change goals”. The commitment to “greener aid” suggests that new projects could be rejected for funding if they could contribute to carbon emissions.

We Don’t Need To Change The Lyrics Much For Enola May, Do We?

Prompted by this:

I’ve just seen Theresa May derided as ‘The Enola May’ – have you heard of a better name based put down of her?

How much change do we need to this?

You should have stayed at home yesterday
Ah-ha words can’t describe
The feeling and the way you lied These games you play
They’re going to end in more than tears some day
Ah-ha Enola May
It shouldn’t ever have to end this way

It’s eight fifteen
And that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio
Conditions normal and you’re coming home Is mother proud of little boy today
Ah-ha this kiss you give
It’s never ever going to fade away

It shouldn’t ever have to end this way
Ah-ha Enola May
It shouldn’t fade in our dreams away It’s eight fifteen
And that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio
Conditions normal and you’re coming home
Is mother proud of little boy today
Ah-ha this kiss you give
It’s never ever going to fade away

There’s a Resemblance – Dutch PM Calls Theresa May The Limbless Knight From Monty Python

This might be ever so slightly unkind but there is a great deal of truth to it – the Dutch Prime Minister has compared Theresa May’s attempts over Brexit to the Black Knight – aka the limbless knight – from Monty Python’s Holy Grail movie.

So, compare and contrast this to May’s repeated attempts to manage to do anything at all about Britain leaving the EU:

Well, yes:

Theresa May is like the knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail who loses his arms and legs in a duel and calls it a draw, the Dutch prime minister has said.

Theresa May Takes On The EU In A Spitfire – Tally Ho Chaps!

That this is the BBC just getting things wrong is obviously true for it has Theresa May – you know, the simulacrum of a human being we’ve got as Prime Minster these days – taking on Brussels in a Spitfire. Certainly, they showed film which purported being her going to negotiate with them which was of a Spitfire in WWII years flying around.

So far so fun of course except there is indeed that deeper meaning to be gained from this:

The deeper meaning being that a good half of the country – perhaps that 52% last time we properly measured this – would be whooping with joy if only she had done this.…
