"Mrs May is very fond of saying that politics is not a game"

Would this be the same Mrs May whose predecessor instigated the EU vote purely as a very badly-judged sop to placate the internal infighting of his (and her) own party's hard-right Eurosceptic tendency, the same Mrs May whose (now) Foreign Secretary became a flagwaver for the "Leave" camp, due to a sudden conversion that had absolutely *nothing* to do with political opportunism and advancing his own career?

The same Mrs May whose colleagues clearly had no plan in place for what would happen if the Leave voters did win, and who flailed about rudderless in the aftermath, stabbing each other in the back (thank you, Gove 90). It's not as if there was nothing more important than the future of the United Kingdom at stake, is it?

It's not as if the fact the Britain's membership of the EU was treated throughout as a political football for the Tories' own political ends is "playing games", is it?
