Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Theresa May, for her part, has spoken directly to the UK People in a TV broadcast over the heads of MPs saying it is time for MPs to stop squabbling and engaging in arcane procedural wrangling. MPs have not responded well, branding her talk pointless, insulting, and arrogant. Dominic Grieve, a leading Conservative Remainer and former Attorney General says "he has never been more ashamed to be a member of the Conservative party" and that he will oppose the Prime Minister unless the Withdrawal Agreement is put to the people in a public vote.
I think you may be mixing up May's intervention at Prime Minister's Questions in the morning and her TV speech from Downing Street in the evening. Dominique Grieve was reacting in the afternoon to May's PMQ intervention.

Not to mention the "delicately coded" message of Elizabeth II, Regina, on 25 January 2019.

You are indeed correct, but I doubt Dominic Grieve's opinion would have been improved by her TV broadcast... and he certainly hasn't walked his comment back in the meantime...
