Always up for an opinion :D

 

Don't envy her, you've got a split Tory party, a split Labour party that's likely to fracture after the leadership contest (whatever the result), and a mess from the fallout from the EU Referendum - and a Liberal Democratic party that's become largely irrelevant nowadays.

 

Who would want to be PM at the moment?

 

Not overly keen on her (She's Conservative for starters!) but we'll have to wait and see. If she can at least get some organisation and planning back then that will be a start.

Very interesting if somewhat right-wing cabinet.

 

Must admit Boris as Foreign Secretary surprised me.

 

God help the poor junior doctors in the NHS with Jeremy Hunt retainming the Health job !!

Don't think the people of Liverpool will think of Boris as the ideal choice of Foreign Secretary - Like putting Prince Phillip in the job!

Jeremy Hunt, that is a disaster for the NHS.

It'll be interesting to see how Boris treats the current Turkish situation.

She turned up for the re-dedication of our local war memorial on Friday 11th November this year as it was an appointment she accepted over a year ago - still looking after her constituency, remembering those things that are important and keep her feet on the ground.

Ridiculous woman who is completely out of her depth. If she scraps brexit, or gives us another referendum I could change my mind though.

I have to disagree, RB.

 

I'm not a Tory, but have to say I find her more in touch with peoples true feelings than greasy Cameroon and Co.

 

As far as Brexit is concerned, it will be triggered, as that is the democratic wish of the people, me included.

If we really do have a hard brexit it will all end in tears IMO. All us remainers want is a second referendum once the terms of brexit are known.Surely thats just common sense.

If we leave Europe then so be it. If we leave the single European market, it will be a long term disaster for the U.K.

 

It will cost between £50-80bn to leave the EU, that's your £350m a week on the NHS (which wasn't true anyway ) wiped out for some time. We will lose trade, we will lose foreign investment. Switzerland who have been seen as the model for not being in the EU are moving manufacturing to the EU, particularly the Netherlands and are now having sanctions put on them by the EU for breaking regulations.

 

Theresa May is good at coming up with Soundbites which don't mean anything (Brexit means Brexit etc.) but to me it's clear that there's no coherent plan and when one does appear there will be some unhappy people in the Tory party as there's clearly a conflict there.

 

We voted to leave the EU (not me personally) , we will leave the EU but when it becomes obvious that it was the wrong decision then I believe we will have another referendum (might take a few years though).

This makes interesting reading from Mervyn KIng, former Governor of the Bank of England, yesterday....

 

https://www.theguardian.com/business/mervyn-king

I think you are clutching at straws BJR. King is almost universally recognised as the worse governor ever,and the fact Farage agrees with him says it all really.As far as Im concerned he is just another selfish old man who put bigotry before whats best for generations to come.

Interesting. I think that Mark Carney has been recognised as the better qualified governor to be honest. King lost all credibility over Northern Rock - this was referred to in the article.

 

We live in difficult times, people are worried about their futures, the government says things are getting better but there's no evidence of that for the ordinary person particularly with the austerity policies of this government. People become desperate for alternatives and that plays into the hands of someone like Farage.

 

The whole premise of the economic argument is that we can negotiate better trade deals; I don't think we will be able to. Time will tell

Carney isn't even English !.  He can disappear back to Canada whenever he wants.  Is he just a 'stooge' for 'Trumpton', I ask myself ??

 

The clock is ticking down to March, Tick - Tick - Tick - Tick !

 

Article 50 will then be activated.

 

(I just really hope the Yanks never let Trumpton near ANY buttons !)

Well, a general election is on the way - I think it's a clever move by Theresa May as she's clearly going to get re-elected by probably a substantial majority

I know we've had issues with Polls recently but it's such a large margin at the moment (20% lead in the polls) that I can't see it being overturned in the election.

 

Trouble for me is that I think this is the cruellest government we've had for a long time and I'm not sure how the UK is going to cope with another 4/5 years of it.

Can't agree with your second para, Cuppa !

 

Maggie Thatcher's introduction of Poll Tax was violently anti working man.

 

I agree with your first para though.  Labour is no longer a threat to her.  Her reral opposition is going to come from 'The Wicked Witch of the North', and her SNP.  I was talking to one of my Scottish cousins and he reckons true die-hard Scots DON'T want to break with the Union and if  'Nickel@rse Sturgeon' gets another referendum, she'll be beaten yet again.

 

I'm very seriously considering voting Tory on June 8th, and that'll be for the first time in over two decades !!

To be fair, I'm not a Tory supporter, but I think Theresa has been treated abominably by her own party.

Firstly, she took the 'poisoned chalice' after Cameron decided it was a good time to quit to protect himself, then her own back-benchers ensured that there wouldn't be a deal over Brexit come what Ma, (if you'll pardon the expression) !.

I can see us heading rapidly, (well, with 3 or 4 months), to a NO-DEAL scenario, and after the last three years shenanigans, this will probably be the best result for the UK.

I think a no deal brexit is now likely especially if Boris gets in. There will be irreparable damage done to the UK economy if this happens. As for Theresa May I think you’re spot on there Big JR - she’s been treated poorly by her own party and has been made the fall erm Gal for her party.

Even if she had spoken to the other parties and tried to get a consensus before there’s too many people in parliament that are only looking out for power and it would have failed.

We seem to be forgetting who is ultimately responsible for this whole BREXIT fiasco and making our once proud Country the laughing stock it has sadly become, that is David Cameron for calling the referendum in the first place, he didn't have to

He could see what was coming, and wanted to get out of the firing line.

 

In anyone elses language, a coward !!
