UK: terrorism isn’t equal for everyone

Three days after Theresa May’s political suicide, conservatives have regrouped. For the good of the country, they say, meaning for the good of the party.

Keeping the risk of a new election round at bay that, they fear, could bring Jeremy Corbyn and the labour group to power. Already returning to maneuvers for succession, Boris Johnson and others tighten the rope around May’s simulacrum, which they will carry in procession to Brussels for the inaugural Brexit negotiation rites. Within a few days the negotiations with the 10 DUP parliament members from Northern Ireland will be concluded to shore up the majority and present the May encore to the confidence of Parliament.
