EXCLUSIVE: Gair Rhydd meets Theresa May

“Corbyn would do a really good job of running the country right now” says PM

By Jess Warren

On Thursday, April 28 Gair Rhydd met Theresa May, current Prime Minister of the UK, for an exclusive interview concerning recent developments in the Brexit negotiations and the ever approaching possibility of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit.

Speaking with Gair Rhydd, May said: “It’s a frustrating time for Politics at the moment, with very few decisions actually being made.

“It seems that every time I bring a new deal into Parliament, nobody likes it – and that’s the trouble with the Leave and Remain groups being so large on both sides, you just can’t please everybody.

“It’s particularly difficult, because now the EU are calling for us to listen to our Remainers, something I just refuse to do. To be quite honest, I think we would be fine to leave the EU in the next few months, the UK has a history of resilience, we are strong and stable.”

We asked the PM whether she felt Jeremy Corbyn, current leader of the Labour Party, and the Conservatives main opposition whether she thought he would have done a better job of leaving the EU.

May stated that: “Corbyn is also on the side of Leave, so I imagine he would do a pretty good job. In fact, we were down in The Red Lion on Parliament Street the other night, and I asked if he wanted my job.

“You see I just can’t take it anymore, all this Leave and Remain, it’s the only conversation I have from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep, and this has been going on for the last three years.

“I’m just tired, I wish this whole faff with leaving the EU fell on someone else’s shoulders, but Cameron really stitched me up when he resigned, passing the baton to me.

May went on to say: “Corbyn would probably do a really good job of running the country right now, he’s always at that allotment of his, he’s very good. He knows how to tend to dying things like his tomatoes, I’m sure he could handle our country.”

Politics editors, Pitcher, Tilley, King and Martelli also asked the MP a few questions. Having been up until the early hours last week following latest Brexit developments, the Gair Rhydd Politics Desk were keen to speak to the PM personally.

Tilley was quick to ask the PM why she left passing a deal until the last-minute, so close to the official leaving date of the UK from the EU.

May stated: “The thing is, I’m just like you students really, we had all the time in the world to get it done, but I just couldn’t be bothered. I was too busy watching Netflix – they do some cracking documentaries you know.

“I would have got it done sooner, but the thrill of leaving things until the end is just too addictive.”

King pushed the PM further, asking whether May thought it appropriate to resign, following the continued push-back against her Brexit deal.

The PM was quick to comment, saying: “For a few months I’ve been thinking about resigning, and now that I’ve had a chat to Corbyn in the pub about it, I think I’m ready to resign and call a general election. The Conservatives have been struggling to pass the deal, and to be honest, I’m not sure we are what’s right for the country right now.

“It would be much better if the Labour Party took the reins for the next four years, at least that way I can put my feet up and have a cup of tea without the EU flag flashing in my brain every time I close my eyes.”

With such an exclusive coming from the PM, Gair Rhydd are proud to be publishing such a story on the 1st of April. April Fools!
