  • How long will she last?

    Theresa May seems determined to hang on to power.

    Your predictions are invited as to how long she can survive.

    I give her until August/September, when she'll cynically call another election, thinking she can dent the student vote. (She's wrong).

    Polls are that Corbyn will have an absolute majority is a general election is cold.

    I think the Tories will try to hang on as long as possible but they may very well get rid of her within a month...

      so they won't call an election anytime soon if the polls are against them. It is easy to promise lots of free stuff when you know you won't win...wonder how different the next Labour manifesto will be?

              Thank you! (I've obviously been out of teaching too long. I used to be able to guess stuff like that, too!)

              I am amazed that the other Tories haven't torn May limb from limb yet. Although, there isn't really anyone half-competent waiting in the wings, is there?

                  She has the job that,right now, no-one wants. After Brexit is well under way, the " I can lead you to the promised land" briefings will emerge.

                  I wished that May had done a Major, who put Heseltine into the fray and the hustings, ad likewise put Boris into the debates. it would have spectacular.
                  Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

                    Looks like the skills I learned on my mid-life PGCE were useful after all!
                    The PM job during the Brexit negotiations won't be an easy one with the "soft Brexit" squealers making noise and the Establishment willing to do anything to keep the status quo...
                    I don't think there is an appetite for a leadership battle amongst the Tories at the moment but you never know.
                    Meanwhile Corbyn and his cronies are trying to stage a coup.
                    Strange times we live in.....

                      I agree, normally I would have predicted there would be a coup before the autumn conference, however, this is a job that no-one wants at this moment in time, including Boris. Most people think the best leader would be David Davis, who is at least the negotiater and spokesman for everything Brexit.

                        And who's she? The cat's mother? Have some respect for our PM.

                          Wilfred! How lovely to see you here.

                          She is the scarecrow in the wheatfield. But not scarey. Just tedious and arrogant.

                            Really can't deal with another election and our country can't given how much they cost! She's caused this whole mess herself and have no sympathy. Really cannot bare another election so just hope they sort out the PM and leadership issues pronto.

                              It will only take the government to loose 1 or 2 votes on bills going through the House of commons and where be into another General election.

                              It's not if, but when ?
