Last quote by Martin Kettle

If she continues to seek a hard exit from the EU, the prime minister will split her party and be remembered as a fleeting, failed leader. When a political party has existed for as long as Britain’s Conservatives, nothing is entirely without precedent. This even goes for the dire situation in which Theresa May finds herself after she threw away her majority in a snap election before setting out to govern with a divided party in a hung parliament.feedback

Jun 16 2017 Brexit
We found 15 articles in which Martin Kettle said something. The most recent Martin Kettle’s quote is: “In the scrabble for a majority, Theresa May seems to have again rushed into an unnecessary response, overlooking the unionists’ cumbersome baggage. “I’m the person who got us into this mess,” Theresa May told Tory MPs on Monday, “and I’m the one who will get us out of it.” The prime minister is right about the first half of that statement. But she is wrong about the second half. She has not learned from her humbling at the polls last week. In April, she rushed into an unnecessary election. Now, amid the political debris of that error, she is again rushing prematurely into an unnecessary response, in the shape of a destructive pact with the Democratic Unionists in June.”.

Mar 31 2017 - Scottish independence

One needs a deal she can sell in Scotland; the other is being dragged towards a new referendum. For both, the odds of success are slim. In the pivotal scene of Alexander Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin, the heroine Tatyana writes a disastrously counterproductive love letter to the aloof hero. Mistaking Onegin’s reserve for nobility of character, Tatyana throws herself upon him. The scene that follows is one of the most touching in all of European opera.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - 2017 UK Parliament attack

The core beliefs voiced by the prime minister after the Westminster attack were laudable. Will we ever see them put into practice?Modern politics is remorseless, and modern politicians cannot opt out. Even when life and limb are at stake, a political leader has always at some point to ask the vulgar question: how will this play?feedback

Mar 17 2017 - Scottish independence

From Brexit to Scotland, the prime minister has become one of modern politics’ greatest risk-takers. It could mean the end of the UK. When the horses line up for the Cheltenham Gold Cup this afternoon, it would be astonishing to learn that Theresa May had her feet up and was watching the race on television. Still less that she had put a pot of her money on a well-priced outsider.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Labour Party

The party’s supporters voted two to one to remain, so why does Jeremy Corbyn kowtow to the leavers?If you are unfortunate enough to be standing on a burning drilling platform in the North Sea, you face an unenviable choice. Stay on the platform and the blaze will kill you; leap into the sea and, if you are still alive after you hit the water, you risk a rapid death from exposure.feedback
