Does May really mean what she is doing here ? There is a dog whistle sounding whenever she intones this dreadful phrase “I am delivering the “People’s Will.” In the latest examples of it, she is setting herself up as the “People’s” friend and ally – against and as opposed to their own parliament and democratic system. It is a wicked misuse of language and her role, astonishingly irresponsible and dangerous.
And of course the “People” her dog whistle is signalling to is not the nation’s people at all. It is her own extremely questionable and wavery support. It is the readers of the Daily Mail. It is Dacre and his mercenaries.
