Mrs May

Post by 222gers » Sun Jun 11, 2017 1:19 pm

A figure of fun at the moment but if there is a "night of the long knives", we face the possibilty of Gove, Johnston, Fox or somesuch nightmare being PM. Amber Rudd has too small a majority in her constituency to be considered. My neighbour is a Tory activist and tells me there is support for approaching David Cameron. A humiliation but better than some alternatives.

Careful what you wish for.

I rarely, if ever, agree with bum nose Osborne but May is a dead woman walking.

Not only so but I can't see a Tory government, under any leader, in cahoots with the DUP lasting long, and neither should it. The sooner we have another GE the better.

There's a lot of back stabbing to be done before an alternative leader emerges.

Apparently over 15,000 people have joined the Labour Party since polling day. Amazing. I can't believe the Tories will keep Mrs May for long after the initial Brexit talks.

You mean over 150,000 people have joined since polling day, and yes it is absolutely amazing. Labour must find ways of keeping the excitement going until the next GE. If they can, I am in no doubt they will be elected.

Keep her as long as possible. Good news for Labour and their secret weapon.

Not sure what you mean there. If this Govt can last five weeks I'll buy a round ? Do you have a DianeAbbott fixation ?

Like most people I spent this afternoon enthusing about Mrs May's thrilling cabinet reshuffle but wondered - why no place for Jacob Rees-Mogg ? The honourable member for the early twentieth century.

I see the financial markets and the CBI are complaining that the uncertainty of the present mess is very bad for the British economy. So what does May do ? Delay the Queen's speech adding a few more days of doom and pessimism for the British economy. Anyone know khow much, day by day, this is costing ?
Does anyone know what May means by a few more days ?

If her brother Brian wasn't such a good guitarist, I'd feel even more animosity toward her.

May's scapegoats so far: Nick Timothy, Fiona Hill and actual goat.

If Jon Pertwee were still alive he could've played Boris Johnston to great effect.

I'm really struggling on who should replace her....

No one centre-ist for me sticks out and to be honest I would be happy for some form of grand coalition between the major parties as brexit has been truly ballsed up by May with her naked grab for five years more power on the premise she couldn't lose against Corbyn and would gain a bigger majority....

She and her advisors thought we can throw some really unpalatable policies on top which imo along with the unwillingness to debate led to this fine mess she now wants to get us out of!
2017/2018.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....
