So it looks like the Tories have failed to agree a confidence-and-supply arrangement with the racist, homophobic, sectarian Democratic Unionist Party with whom they have so many hobbies in common.
It’s my guess that one of the main sticking points will have been that of social spending: the DUP are far more paternalist than the neoliberal free-market Westminster Conservatives, and so likely have been pushing the May rump government to roll back austerity in Northern Ireland in the name of the (white, straight, Protestant) working-class. This is something that the Tories cannot even hope to square with any one of half a dozen other political lynchpins: preventing a recurrence of the Scottish independence debate, maintaining the façade of the Good Friday, demonstrating tight fiscal responsibility to EU negotiators, etc.
Today will be the first time a British government has been forced to put forward a legislative programme amid collapsing coalition talks. It’s highly likely that any Queen’s Speech will face mutilation by MPs during its passage through Parliament at the end of the month - even by fractious Tory backbenchers furious at the ineptitude of the May Cabinet. Such a loss of confidence would end the Tory administration before it had even begun, and would demand the resignation of Theresa May.
Amid a crisis of leadership amongst the ruling-class, power devolves to the people: July 1st will see a huge protest against austerity and for a future which guarantees the interests of the working-class. It’s within our grasp - a left-wing Labour government thrust to power on the backs of the rising people.
