    Apparently they havve the number of letters to hold a vote of no confidence.

    I would be delighted to see the heartless bitch kicked out but, in all honesty, there isnt one of these clowns I would be happy with,

    Brexit will go on hold whilst the tories pursue their favourite pastime of backstabbing.

    If she beats this then she is safe for 12 months.

    Copied.

    28 months ago, the Conservative Party elected Theresa May leader with 60% of the vote.

    29 months ago, 51.9% of voters supported leaving the EU.

    On one of these, it’s fine to ask if people have changed their minds. To do so on the other is apparently an affront to democracy.

    I am not at all certain I agree with your assessment of May. As regards Brexit, she was dealt an impossible hand, and probably made the best of it. Hard Brexiteers' assertions that a hard Brexit would lead to a glorious future are as ludicrous as Corbyn's assertion that he could negotiate a substantially better deal for Britain.

    But, sure, the Tories couldn't choose a worse time for a leadership challenge, and, as far as I've seen, none of the major contenders, at this time, seems eager at this time to throw his hat in the ring. Funny, isn't it?

    What do you think?

    This vote of no confidence could end Boris's career – and give May the exact boost she needs

    Does this, in case May survives, in any way affect BoJo's chances to gain the crown? I am not at all sure I follow the argument, but I may well be missing the necessary background information.

    You certainly are.

    Whatever hand she was dealt, she is a Remainer. A Brexiteer should have dealt with all this.

    And the Euros have not played exactly fair either. Exploiting May's weakness. And employing that idiot Juncker.

    Good. Maybe the people will get someone that represents them.

    Who though?

    I liked Nadine Dorries today.

    But you don't know her, do you?

    The Left party is too ideologically driven.. Apart from Hilary Benn, who resigned once out of principle. I like those sort of people.
