I hear the sound of knives being sharpened… May will never succeed in selling Brexit to the British public (she can't even sell it to her own cabinet, as Corbyn pointed out) because she doesn’t believe in it. It’s like buying meat from a vegan butcher.

The last time two ministers resigned within 24 hours of each other was back in 1979.

Publication of the Brexit White Paper due on on Thursday has been delayed until "next week".

I think this is probably spot on.

The trouble is if she goes, it could go either way, and I suspect the brexiteers will have the tiller...And that won't be pretty.

I think there are enough hard Brexiters in the Tory party to replace her, but not enough in Parliament to get it passed.Pyrrhic victory? Who knows.
What a feckin shambles.
Good riddance to Boris though. Gurning idiot.Cant believe that people are still fooled by him.

Time for yet another general election. Maybe save time by holding a second referendum on the same day.
Cameron should have to pay for it.

You could seize that cunt Cameron's DNA; replace the entire UK workforce with him and his simulcarums and make them work 24/7 at treble time rates for the next 50 years and it still wouldn't begin to repay the cost of the damage his stupidity has cost and - more importantly - has yet to cost the UK.

They wouldn’t have a majority in Parliament though which would make things interesting.

They could of course ride roughshod over the idea of parliamentary democracy but I reckon they’d be ousted pronto. I suppose much depends on whether the Tory remainders hate and fear the idea of a Corbyn government more than the Brexiteers. :?

May invites a pig into the house and watches it shit on the floor.
I have known Student Union officials with a better sense of political judgement than Theresa May.

A Corbyn government?

There isn't even a Corbyn opposition.

It is baffling to me why any world leader would invite Trump to their country. Well outside of Putin and Kim.

Because we're crashing out of the European Union and desperately want to be the 51st State.

Have you seen May being dragged around by the hand like a runty poodle by Trump on the news? I think we are there already.

Anyone with a scintilla of self respect would have told him to fuck off.

She makes me embarrassed to be British.

Grow some ovaries lady!

Compared to the way Blair was scampering around Bush jr, she is acting with dignity and poise.

Shame on you. The positions are not comparable, and when you put your brain in, you know it.

Well do explain.

Both are looking for approval from a more powerful man. Both more than willing to bend over and take what it takes to get it.

What differences do you see?

I don't see Blair as a runty poodle. An over-excited spaniel perhaps?
