Theresa May about to Resign?

Would you be first in the queue for that one, crusty?
Make a great story in Country Life or Escort* Readers Wives Letters.

*Is Escort still printed or now all online?

Mrs CR does say I'm a sicko at times but then so are others on arrse!:boogie:

I’ve long since stopped trying to apply logic where May is concerned. For the good of your own sanity, I suggest you do the same.
Like it, but it also made me laugh.=-D

Got to give her A+ for determination but a D- for doing well at the job.
Why does she not retire from parliament, write her memories, make £££ & she n Phil can retire and live a bit.

Or she can do a full commando spread in Penthouse Oldies "Mrs May - Thanks for the Mammaries"
You sir have one hell of an imagination. :salut:

Ps do they still do that publication:???: asking for a friend like.
 
. . . I feel sorry for the ARRSE collective who are overwhelmingly pro right wing conservatives . . .
I'm not sure that you're assessment is that accurate, chap: in my view, a goodly number might be described as small 'c' Conservative, holding the view of 'small Government' in most things.

Such a thing is anathema to the more vocal Left of centre supporters here, whose Nirvana is a central control from the Socialist hive.

Hence why the Lofty Left and Liberals are comfortable in deploying the rather nonsensical 'XRW' at any challenge to that ideal.

The 1922 committee had a secret ballot last night, the result of which will only be disclosed if she does not give a firm departure date on Sunday , if no date is forthcoming then they will open the sealed envelopes to see if there is a majority in favour of changing the once a year only vote of confidence in the leader.

This has got to the point where it is no longer about May but about the party itself.

I feel sorry for the ARRSE collective who are overwhelmingly pro right wing conservatives, as it is all about to change and conservatives indeed most political parties will be changing beyond recognition

I have mentioned this before, but since the great Blair revolution in the late 1990`s there has been no GE which resulted in a thumping overall majority

Maybe we will end up like the EU after all and our GE will produce minority or coalition governments

PS media commentators are now discussing the fact that they believe that PM TM wants to hang on to out do the duration of Browns premiership. I don't think that a lot of the people who the Tories would be relying on for their vote will be impressed with that - Self and Party before Country

The old aphorism used to be that Tory MPs were ruthless about getting rid of lame duck PMs, however I think that it will shortly be expanded to conservative voters showing how ruthless they can be about getting rid of said Tory MPs.
The scare that the Tories seem to see is that TBP presents a credible alternative for their traditional voting, but they'll come to their senses when faced with labour.
Perhaps its easier to look at that than the rather bowel shaking possibility that the EU elections are signalling; that the TBP could be a credible conservative replacement to the Tories

By not putting the current situation to bed swiftly and ruthlessly, the Tories have shown structural and systemic flaws that can't be easily repaired

It would be worth CCHQ remembering the words of AB Cunningham about risking ships evacuating troops off Crete in 1941 when individual ministers think of career over party.
It takes the Navy three years to build a ship. It will take three hundred years to build a new tradition. The evacuation will continue.[44]

That seems to be the position of the majority of our politicians.
I think that attitude is based on the knowledge that WHEN we leave the EU, Politicians won't have a fallback position of "Blame the EU" and, will actually have to take full reponsibility for the result of their actions.

They will have to 'work' for a living or, get deselected by the voters. :wink:

I think they're beginning to realise that. Have they left it too late?

The problem for UKIP was it had two different ideological bases. Blue UKIP in the south and Red UKIP in the north. Perhaps if you are correct and The Brexit Party replaces the Conservatives, then might it be possible for Red UKIP to replace Labour? Possibly as "Patriotic Labour"?
 
As with Thatcher, my guess is that it will be PMTM's old man (you know the one who looks like a superannuated version of Hank Marvin) who will be the one who finally persuades the mad old witch to draw stumps.

He'll have seen her progressive physical and mental decline and probably been at the receiving end of the latter.
 
Mrs May gone by by End of Month after meeting 1922 Committee Chairman on Friday.
She will be told the time is for her to go as her deal will not be passed by Tory MP's.
Tory leader election before Septembers Conference season & expect new leader by Summer holiday period.
Boris to win after a run off, however Brexit will still be the shity stick it is!

Well, the 1922 thingy only has a few days left to hold that no-confidence vote as May finishes next week.
May is finished now and has been for some time, the question is - how can they get her out of No10?
 
If she gets through friday, she'll get through to monday. From Monday it'll be getting to PMQ's, and then to friday.
I did see a perhaps charitable suggestion that she will go 'as a result of the disastrous EU election'.

The notion (in that suggestion) is that she will nobly bear the blame for the party's humiliation and thus restore the Conservative party's standing in the eyes of it's currently disgruntled voter base.

I can't provide a link as I can't remember where I read / who the commentator was but in this whole baby's nappies content of Brexit, there's nothing left to raise eyebrows... is there?
