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.

Well we can relate to having a heavy cold and feeling a bit shitty. That's something everyone has experienced. And usually when we feel like that we pull a sickie from work. She was in a position where she didn't have that option and that's what might attract sympathy. It really wasn't a political point I was making at all.

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.

I was a teenage through the second half of the 80s, but I never saw any statesman-like qualities in Reagan. Thatcher was just scary and so had that commanding sense that other scary leaders have. Of course, she fucked most things up for the north so I never had any respect for her.

Tory weasel Grant Shapps seems to be plotting a coup behind her back. Seemingly in collusion with Boris.

So, anyone expect Amber Rudd to be PM by Christmas?

Not exactly plotting behind her back... front page news and the leader on last nights news channels.
I'm sure Johnson is fully aware of proceedings.

But I backed Hammond to be the next Tory Leader and I think he's playing his hand particularly well at present.

You as a teenager may have been. As a grown-up I thought they were clueless cunts, both of them, without an ounce of understanding, mouthpieces for others, easily deluded into destroying the economies of the western anglophone world by allowing a cadre of brigand economists to spunk their neo-liberal, monetarist insanity all over it.

That's how I experienced it too. Those years I was at the Uni, and looking back, I think we were pretty well informed about who were the ventriloquists.
The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.

He talks a bit of sense on Brexit and then he gets asked about Corbyn and comes up with all the old clichés about JC turning Britain into a 70s Communist gulag.

I'm sick of the lot of them.

Sugar nails Corbyn rather well...

“All they’ve done with Corbyn is they’ve taken him to Matalan, they’ve bought him a suit, they’ve cut his hair and they’ve cleaned him up a little bit. He looked like a real lefty hippy when he first came on the scene.
So they’ve dressed him up, told him what to say and he’s become a proper politician now – in other words, a liar.”

Hardly. I've heard more astute analysis from a bloke shouting out of the window of a white van.
