Theresa May’s task is being made impossible by Remainer peers and europhile Tory rebels

NOW we have proof of the chaos, instability and economic damage being caused by Remainer peers and europhile Tory rebels.

EU negotiators admit they are stalling — because Theresa May’s Brexit plans, rejected by the Lords, could be ripped up by a Commons defeat.

At any other moment of great national upheaval a prime minister could expect to lead from the front, with the country, their party and maybe even the opposition united behind them. Mrs May cannot even rely on her own MPs.

Consider what she’s up against:

An EU which has spent two years playing games, either to reverse Brexit or extract a fortune from us while nullifying us as an economic threat.

Unelected peers, contemptuous not only of the referendum verdict but the democracy that produced it.

Tory backbenchers putting their party’s very existence a distant second to getting their own way on Europe.

And a Labour Party solely concerned with ousting the Tories, even if it means wrecking our negotiating strategy.

The PM’s task is being made impossible.

Wrong track

THE problem on some of our train lines is not that they need to be nationalised. It’s that they aren’t privatised enough.

True competition would drive fares down and standards up. Instead the network’s regional monopolies provide no choice of how to get from A to B, regardless of how pricey or poor the service.

Labour is cock-a-hoop the Transport Secretary has temporarily taken the failing East Coast line into state hands.

They think it vindicates doing so to the entire system. It doesn’t. We don’t need nationalised trains — and national strikes on the whim of union bullies.

We need rival firms competing on the same lines. Why not? Airlines manage it.

Beggars belief

THE NHS is in a sorry state if it is begging Help For Heroes for a handout.

There is no excuse. The Government must fully fund speedier mental health treatment for our war veterans.
