Andrea Leadsom, leader of the Commons, quit the cabinet saying she could no longer endorse the prime minister’s Brexit legislation. The prime minister’s debilitation has countless causes dating back to choices she made within months of her arrival in Downing Street. Features of the bill that the prime minister has presented as innovations are, in reality, political scaffolding intended to uphold a structure that has already collapsed. The prime minister did not cultivate relationships with continental counterparts that might have engendered trust and flexibility in talks. The Wab is a prop in a parochial Westminster power play that ends, sooner or later, in the prime minister’s resignation.
