To be fair to her, any other prime minister in her place is hardly going to have an easier time dealing with the thorny Brexit issue. Despite the result of the 2016 referendum, the country is still firmly divided over whether to Leave or Remain. But, to be sure, Theresa May has achieved scarcely anything notable since taking office. Her first big mistake was to call a snap general election, thinking her party was going to romp through it – only to find herself hanging on to power, with the result that the DUP, to which she had to grovel for a power-sharing coalition, is subsequently complicating the Brexit process with its demands over arrangements for the Northern Ireland backstop. It was a supreme act of arrogance, if you ask me.
