Bizarrely, May might have actually judged the public's mood correctly (for once); namely that people are fed up/despairing over the continued uncertainty, and need this to be settled so that they can move on with their lives.Some really interesting results in Survation poll today re: attitudes to the Brexit deal:— Dom Walsh (@DomWalsh13) November 28, 2018
- Voters support the deal 41%-37% - a huge +10 swing from 2 weeks ago
- Voters, incl. plurality of Leavers + Remainers, want MPs to vote for the deal (Leavers 48-36; Remainers 46-38)
Unfortunately, May's deal (if it does pass) is but one step forward on a very long and winding road!
She is of course correct, Treasury forecasts are bollocks!This is what Theresa May told me on Monday about today's Brexit forecasts.

When Theresa May announced, in her recent conference speech that austerity was over, many in the media and politics dismissed it as BS.
However, I refer you to the news on the BBC today that say senior judges in England and Wales could be set for pay rises of up to 32% if recommendations made by the Senior Salaries Review Body are accepted.
The move aims to address low morale among judges and to compensate them for changes to their pension scheme.
The recommendations would see a High Court judge receive an additional £60,000 a year.
Crown Court judges would receive a 22% rise - taking them to £165,000 - and district judges would get an 8% rise.
Clearly austerity is definitely over, as there is no way judges would get such a stonking pay rise if others in the public sector didn't as well!

Lots of wild and loose talk about leadership moves. There is no vacancy. However, on a technical point, if a vacancy did arise process need not take more than 2 working weeks - 4 days in Commons (if needed) and 6 days with membership - does not need to be an overly long process— Mark Pritchard MP (@MPritchardUK) October 11, 2018
Sadly, because of Theresa May's disastrous decision to call and election and then botch it, the country is being run by government propped up by the DUP (who demanded £1BN for their support).This is extraordinary. In the event the DUP vote down the budget: “No10 sources also insisted the move would be a clear breach of the Tory-DUP confidence and supply agreement – meaning Ulster would also have to pay back its £1bn bonus from the government.” https://t.co/cgQiIiunRV— Labour Whips (@labourwhips) October 11, 2018
Now that things are hotting up wrt Brexit, the DUP is relishing its position of "power broker", or more accurately in this case "power destroyer", and is threatening to vote against the Budget if their Brexit "red lines" are crossed.
The DUP claim to want to be treated as the same as the rest of the UK. This is all very well, noble and commendable. However, when it comes to other laws (eg abortion) the DUP are "strangely" reluctant to follow the UK's lead.
Inevitably, as could have been predicted when the confidence and supply deal was brokered by May, this particular house of cards looks like it is about to come crashing down to earth.
As and when it does, I will be most fascinated to see how May gets the £1BN back!

Such is the bizarre state of British politics, that we have finally crossed through the looking glass, and are now in a world where Tory ministers are in talks with aaround 25 Labour MPs to secure Theresa May's widely despised Chequers Brexit deal.
Seemingly the Government’s whips’ office has spent recent months making contact with the MPs, as a back-up option for when May’s Brexit deal is put to a vote in Parliament in early December.
Methinks certain Tories will not be best pleased by this!
Thursday, 4 October 2018
May will have to find at least an extra £20billion to spend on public services to fulfil her pledge that austerity is over, according to the head of the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
Paul Johnson said even that amount of additional funding “won’t feel particularly generous” and would almost certainly have to be found through borrowing because the Government would “really struggle to get tax rises through” Parliament.
Basically, Theresa May shrouded her "end of austerity" in the cloak of "a good Brexit".
The reality is that we have, at this stage, no way of knowing if there will be a "good Brexit" and what, exactly, she means by an end to "austerity".
May has no grounding/understanding in finance/economics so it is very doubtful that she understood what she mean either!

As per The Spectator:
"There are some in the cabinet who still loathe Brexit and regard Chequers as the UK’s opening offer. Philip Hammond, the Chancellor, is expected to push to stay in the customs union and makes no attempt to disguise his concerns about Brexit.Philip, economies are not just supply sided they are also demand driven. Market forces will sort out the imbalance of low skilled EU workers, one way or another!
In cabinet meetings this week, he complained that a restaurant in his Surrey constituency can’t hire enough staff to wait all the tables — proof, he said, that the UK needed low-skilled immigration.
But as one exasperated cabinet minister put it to me afterwards, it didn’t seem to have occurred to the Chancellor that maybe the restaurant should just pay its staff more. And that the balance of power between workers and low-wage businesses might be precisely why so many voted for Brexit in the first place."

The Times reports that Jeremy Corbyn has been summoned for a personal briefing by the head of MI5 on the terrorist threat to Britain amid questions about his approach to national security.
Andrew Parker, the director-general of the Security Service, is expected to give the Labour leader a “full briefing” on the threat from Islamists in Britain and Isis jihadists returning from the Middle East to plot atrocities on home soil.
The MI5 boss also wants to prime Corbyn on the extent of hostile Russian espionage activity and the growing threat from far-right extremists.
Corbyn had been asked to attend the briefing yesterday, but he has had an attack of cold feet and postponed it.
