The 80s are back: Britain has a female PM, we’re about to embark on a massive bout of deregulation and the left are in disarray.
Theresa May began her first full week in office by humiliating the opposition with a debate on renewing Britain’s Trident Nuclear Weapons system.
May knows Labour are horribly split on the subject—just having the debate would worsen the crisis of leader Jeremy Corbyn. He is already subject to a challenge that looks likely to see his entire party membership balloted on whether he should be allowed to continue. An almost unprecedented humiliation.
