Theresa May’s biggest failure isn’t Brexit. Grenfell is.

Deceit, dishonesty, and a doomed political system led to Theresa May’s resignation.

“I did my best… It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret for me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit.” — Theresa May

A legacy of failure.

When Theresa May stepped in to lead Britain out of the European Union, many viewed her has an inspired leader. Let’s not forget that it was David Cameron’s government who called for the referendum on EU membership. Cameron’s ill-fated decision ignited a country divide so deep that it’s hard to imagine a recovery.

Yo, Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?

“Yo, Theresa May, where’s that money for Grenfell?
What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?”
You’re criminals and you got the cheek to call us savages
You should do some jail time, you should pay some damages
We should burn your house down and see if you can manage this…” - Stormzy

I remember watching it at the time, thinking: “This will go down in T.V. history”. It was evocative; making hairs on my arms stand up. Finally someone spoke up. Did Theresa respond? No.

A Conservative attack.
