Theresa May, Trump's lap dog in Europe

Within a day of returning from the child-emperor's court, Theresa May was given a golden opportunity to show how her concern for Great British values would influence Trump's foreign policy. Unfortunately, her response to the blanket on citizens of seven predominantly-Muslim states from entering or passing through America was one of stony-faced silence as she attempted to drum up excitement about a possible armaments deal with another champion of human rights, Turkey's President Erdogan.

Somewhere on the flight back from Ankara clutching her message of triumph in her hand, it appears her handlers realised that her appeasement of Trump wasn't going down too well in Blighty. Even her own true-blue Tories were squirming at reports of long-term British residents were left stranded as they were banned from flights routed through the US. So, putting on as stern a face as possible, the latest reincarnation of Queen Boadicea decided to express her concerns.

I reckon even Charlie Flanagan at his meekest would come up with a more forceful response.

Jeez, where does this leave brave new Post-Brexit Britain? The junior associate of the new Gang of Four - Trump's America, Putin's Russia, Netanyahu's Israel and Erdogan's Turkey?

That is probably most ill informed OP in a long time.

Prof. Honeydew has given us bullsh1t as the basis of an discussion point.

Theresa May did not fail in regards to something about which she has no responsibility. The British government are not responsible for Erdogan.

She fulfilled her actual ( as opposed to the imagination of the writer from the BBC ) responsibilities firmly and competently. She represented Britain's interests. Bailing out the fool in Berlin is not Theresa May's job.


The op is an insight into Prof. Honeydew. But it is not an insight into Theresa May. Theresa May did not "fail". The people who are failing are "Angela's asses" in FG.

The UK and the USA are behaving like two sovereign countries. That is something Ireland has not done since the "leadership" here decided that clowns chasing a polystyrene lump around a field, whilst donning a green jersey substituted for having a semse of responsibility to the people. And this gets followed up with the government of this country taking instructions from Berlin. From a person who is a serial policy disaster who has no clue what she is doing.

Theresa May has to thread very carefully.

Persons connected with MI6 have already been implicated with smears against Trump. May has to appease Trump now.

May is a "dog" now?

Scratch a lefty liberal and you'll find a rabid misogynist underneath.

The EU are determined to punish the British for voting to leave. Ireland will be hurt by that. Trump offers her a lifeline which May has grabbed with both hands. This is potentially good for Ireland as it puts manners on the EU for the negotiations.

The only thing that matters to me for the next few years are Ireland's interests. What America does to protect itself from terrorism is a matter for America. Nobody has a right to go to America. It's a privilege at the discretion of the US.

The OP is stupid. Theresa May should not poke her nose into the US's business, 60 million Americans have just voted for Trump so if May started lecturing Trump for implementing the policies he has just been elected for he would rightly have told her to get up the yard.

The definition of being a Lapdog is the UK kowtowing to Brussels as it has for years which is why the UK is now telling the EU to get up the yard for interfering in how the UK wants to run itself.

Osborne offered Lenihan a lifeline on the issue of bankbondholder debt.

Lenihan opted for a pat on the head from Obama's subprime rubberstamping US treasury secretary instead.

If the maFFia were in power we would be fuct. And unfortunately they are the back seat driver.

The 'leadership' of this country will side with Brussels for their own sake and that will result in financial consequences being pushed on to the rest of us.

So who do you have most, the Brits, the Us or the EU?

I think the point went over your head. We have interests. And we need to defend our interests and not merely be an obedient servant of Brussels or the Tammanny Hall party in the US. Which is all our leadership has being doing for 20 years.

In terms of diplomacy, all Brexit has done is limit the UK's options.

The UK will become more and more dependent on the Americans and Trump may very well make this dependency more obvious and awkward.

Brexit will be like the Suez crisis part II.

Tony Blair was often described as George Bush's poodle.
Theresa May's Britain being described as Trump's lapdog is spot on.

ANSWER: Of the three, the slimy reptile Osborne was the only one you didn't disparage.

I dunno. Do you hold your lap dog's hand?

May briefly recovered her spine today saying she might defend UK interests at some point. This after a Tory MP was banned from the US because he was born in Iraq.

So when are Juncker or Merkel off to pay homage to the new king?
