Nigel Farage: 'Theresa May Must Go' to Save Brexit
Former UKIP and Brexit leader Nigel Farage has lost faith in Theresa May's ability to guide the United Kingdom out of the EU. The prime minister, Farage believes, is so weak that she'll end up being forced to organize new elections, which will then undoubtedly result in a victory for "the utterly clueless and dangerously vain Jeremy Corbyn."
That scenario is clearly what the EU is aiming for. According to Farage, EU "president" Jean-Claude Juncker and his friends "appear to have calculated that if Mrs. May can hang on in Downing Street a while longer, the weaker she will be perceived to have become, increasing the likelihood of an early general election."
"In such a poll," Farage continues, "Juncker and co must hope a Labour-led coalition would be secured, thereby keeping the UK in the single market and the customs union."
That is why Theresa May has to go. Many -- if not most -- Conservative MPs consider May a weak and uninspiring leader. They fear that a leadership election will weaken the party and result in another early election. Perhaps. What we can be certain about, however, is that May will have to call for early elections if she keeps this up. Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party continues to rise in the polls while British voters have little to no faith left in May's abilities to successfully lead the UK out of the European Union. As Farage puts it, "the credibility and competence of the Tory party will ebb away rapidly."
