Theresa May should have gone in June 2017

10 May, 2019

Theresa May

• THE first election leaflet was delivered to us on May 3 by the Brexit Party and I see they have a super candidate in Claire Fox.

Three terror attacks rocked Britain in 2017 on Theresa May’s watch with the result she lost her majority at the last general election. Mrs May abolished control orders, then she introduced exclusion orders in 2014 to prevent jihadis returning to Britain.

The Manchester bomber, who ought to have been given an exclusion order, was allowed to return to Manchester from Libya, because MI5 were intimately involved in facilitating the travel of jihadists to Libya to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.

Under David Cameron’s government 13 people died because of terrorism in the UK between 2010 and 2015. This figure almost tripled with 37 terror-related deaths by 2017.

On June 8 2017 the modest, but working, majority enjoyed by Mrs May before that date was obliterated; so she should have resigned then in the interests of party unity, not to mention national security.
