Christ!

What a disaster. I don't like her but she really can't catch a break can she? :lol:

If anything, I think she's more likely to elicit sympathy from this rather than it go against her - at least as far as the general public are concerned. Within her own party though it may be quite a different matter as we know there are a number poised with knives behind their backs ( indeed some of them are not even bothering to conceal the knives -hello Boris!) looking for any opportunity to pounce.

The problem is that the bloke who pulled this tiresome stunt (and it is not a prank or a hoax as claimed, it is just a not particularly clever self-publicising stunt) is such an odious egomaniacal prick that he has previously nearly managed to make me sympathise with Sepp Blatter and even Donald Trump.

She tried... and failed by any reasonable standards.

Of course those in the hall were in apoplexies of mirth.

I don't think things like this make a blind bit of difference to the average Jo - but they will make the narrative around her administration head further into the 'she's doomed and a liability' zone.

And Just when you thought her performance couldn't get any worse.

Their first two or three albums are great, but their reunion albums are pretty lacking. They still sound great, though, they should just stick to touring.

Does that guy actually have a TV show, or does he just want to be in the papers every six months? I can't bring myself to Google him.

Yeh - he has a show on BBC3.

If he used his BBC credentials and pass to get into the conference hall hw might be in a bit of trouble.

He's no Dennis Pennis though.

From what I read his clearance was confirmed by Manchester police.

I am a bit at a loss though as to the terribleness of her speech- the fact she had a hacking cough and had to interrupt it several times? The headline here suggests it was a 'nightmare from hell'-speech but not making reference to that what she said.

Matthew D'Ancona, the Grauniad's arch-Tory comes across all "Toby-like" in his view of the speech:
In her moment of greatest frailty, May revealed a humanity and robustness that did her credit. She proved herself, in the truest sense, strong and stable. A shame for her that it is all far, far too late.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

It was the usual delusional pack of lies and sound bites. The six toed children of incestuous pairings sat grinning while the wheels of treachery and self promoting plans become so close to fruition , some of them could be seen licking their lips , some say that her throat was hoarse due to an attack in her own bed by a crazed Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Why anyone would feel sorry for her is honestly beyond me. She's as hard-faced as they come. And she's held onto her position because of greed and short-sightedness as much as luck.

Make no mistake - this is one venal, scheming bitch.

I do feel sorry for her, yes. She’s somebody clearly out of her depth, struggling with health problems in an extremely stressful situation. What was that report of her crying before she met the Queen? Something appears to be quite wrong.

Sure I can criticise her for various things politically and, yes, she wanted to be leader etc but I still don’t take pleasure in seeing her unravel like this.

For her own good and for the good of the country she needs to leave and recover.

Fair enough. I'm sick of the whole lot of them. I don't recall living in such times. Cunts to a man.

Even in the 80s when every right-thinking person spat on Reagan and Thatcher, you were aware of their statesmen-like qualities. There was conviction at least.
