Pity Theresa May’s dry vocal chords. The Prime Minister this week finds herself without a voice (nor a Brexit deal, for that matter). Yesterday she spoke in Parliament with a markedly horse, rasping voice, after her withdrawal agreement was rejected by MPs by a significant 149 votes.
And today holds no respite. May will be required to speak again, as she presents a Government motion to block a no deal Brexit. If, as expected, MPs vote against a no deal, they will go on to vote tomorrow on a further Brexit delay.
To employ a cliché as well-worn as her voice, it’s crunch time: if ever May was in need of projecting her voice, that moment is now.
Of course, it’s not the first time the husky-voiced…
