英国人开始嚷嚷着要梅姨下台了

本来继英国公投脱欧以后,大家就以为“英剧”不会再有什么更新了。但是没想到,就在上周五,英国首相特蕾莎·梅强行续写剧本。
 
上周五,特蕾莎·梅领导的保守党在大选中未能如愿获得“压倒性优势”,英国再次出现“悬浮议会”(无绝对多数议会)。特蕾莎·梅当天晚些时候宣布,保守党与北爱尔兰的民主统一党联合组阁。(戳这里回顾)
 
British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed Friday afternoon she would form a Westminster government, helped by members of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

 
眼看着议会“悬”了,吃瓜群众也都琢磨着,梅姨自己的首相位子是不是也悬了?
 
据《每日邮报》网站报道,英国MoS Survation的民调数据显示,49%的受访者认为,现任首相特蕾莎•梅应该辞职,只有38%的受访者支持她留任。
 
The MoS Survation poll found that 49 per cent of all voters want Mrs May to resign, with only 38 per cent wanting her to stay put. 
 
而在谁能接替梅姨的问题上,一匹大黑马脱颖而出,那就是现任英国外交大臣鲍里斯·约翰逊。
 
据英国《泰晤士报》网站报道,5名内阁大臣10日联系约翰逊,支持他“推翻”特蕾莎·梅。而在上文提到的民调中,有26%的受访者认为他是接替梅姨的最佳人选。
 
Boris Johnson has been pressed by five other members of the cabinet to oust Theresa May as prime minister as the Tory party descended into a new civil war. In the same poll, the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, was favourite to replace her, with 26 per cent choosing him.
 
万一约翰逊成功当选,他这一头不羁的金发和大洋彼岸的特朗普也算是交相辉映,这画面太美不敢想啊……

 
不过,一下子成为众人关注的焦点,可能也在约翰逊的意料之外,他赶紧表达立场。

“邮报在胡扯,我支持特蕾莎·梅。让我们好好干活吧。”
 
当然,除了民调,吃瓜群众想要表达意愿的渠道也是花样百出。截至当地时间6月12日,网上已经有超过50万人请愿,阻止保守党和北爱尔兰民主统一党组阁,同时要求梅姨辞职。

 
公投失败,首相危机,党内不和,网上请愿……
 
英国这边的剧情总是让人觉得似曾相识。虽然在细节上有所差异,但是和此前卡梅伦一样,梅姨的日子也不好过。
 
据英国itv网站报道,她的联合幕僚长尼克·蒂莫西和菲奥娜·希尔都已经离职。议会选举失利后,保守党一些内部人士对这两人的批评声不绝于耳,并且认为他们应该对失利负责。
 
Theresa May's joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill have both resigned. The top aides both stepped down after facing furious criticism from party MPs and officials who said they played a significant role in the party's poor performance at the General Election.

 
据报道,梅姨也收到了来自内部人士的最后通牒,如果蒂莫西和希尔不离职,梅姨的党首地位将面临挑战。
 
May had been given an ultimatum from some MPs warning her to sack the pair by Monday or face a leadership contest.
 
尽管压力不断,梅姨还是继续自己的工作。她表示,内阁重组后,政府将把重点放在社会问题上,并且争取“成功脱欧”。
 
Theresa May said the government planned to focus on social issues and "delivering a successful Brexit", as she completed a Cabinet reshuffle. 
 
“重要的是,我从整个保守党中吸收人才。我们希望国家可以为每个人工作,”同时,她还表示,自己已经任命了“一个可以很好处理政府工作的内阁”。
 
"Crucially I've brought in talent from across the whole of the Conservative Party. We want a country that works for everyone." She said she had appointed "a cabinet that will get on with the job of government".
 
而至于大家最关心的任期问题,梅姨也给出了明确回答:竞选的时候已经说过了,这次改选如果成功,将待满自己的任期。
 
And when asked if she would continue in office, she replied: "I said during the election campaign if re-elected, I would serve a full term."
