Disaster! Now Mrs May must go

When Theresa May called the general election, I wrote here that she had taken a mighty risk. When she announced that she would asset strip the houses of the elderly to make them pay for domiciliary care, I asked here whether she was actually trying to lose the election.

Yesterday she lost it. At time of writing the final result still isn’t known. It looks as if Britain is heading for a hung parliament, with the Tories as the largest party scrabbling to stitch together a coalition. (It’s not completely impossible, although unlikely, that Labour could put together such a deal.) Even if the Tories end up with a small overall majority, Mrs May’s gamble that she was the only show in town and would inevitably gain a huge personal mandate has spectacularly blown up in her face.

    Britain is heading for violence in the streets.

      And it was entirely avoidable too, that’s the shame of it.

      If Britain ends up with either a dictator who is a cross between Franco and Cromwell, or an Islamic theocracy, the Left will be the ones to blame.

    Theresa May is only where she is because she’s a woman.
    She played the Womyn Card into Number 10 Downing Street but wasn’t smart enough to hold on to the job that was virtually handed to her on a silver platter. She is only where she is because she was the last one standing during the last round of parliamentary musical chairs. Like Hillary Clinton, nobody actually wanted her, and everyone with any sense, that could have otherwise supported her, realized that she, as the former head on the Home Office, is largely responsible for the fix that The U.K. is in as far as its radicalized Muslim immigrants is concerned (yeah, I know, that was a horrible run-on sentence, but just roll with me here, OK?)
    This is like Stalin calling a halt to the Great Terror of 1936 to hold elections and suddenly discovering that making 98% of your country miserable is not the recipe for success.
    Hell yes, she needs to go, and be gone yesterday.
    Screw her!

      Can’t believe how old this song is now.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I owned that CD!

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Listening to Are Friends Electric? right now.
          I think they are.
          Oh, nice little segue into Cars after the youtube ad.
          I am going to have to find Cannonball after this.

            Wow, I just stumbled across that one by the Breeders from 1993.
            Very odd that you even mentioned it!

            I can’t believe that I have just heard this for the first time.
            Kelley looks amazing in that grey business suit.
            Reminds me of my wife in uniform at the front desk years ago.

            You must have been having a 4AD moment.
            I love certain record labels like 4AD and girl guitar bands from the eighties and nineties.

      She is a pygmy compared to Lady Thatcher.

  • WalterBannon

    she does not have the class to resign

    the party will have to turf her

  • andycanuck

    I believe the theory that she wanted to lose on purpose to sabotage the Brexit that she personally opposed. Time for the backbenchers to dump the bitch.

    • Brett_McS

      That would require an unlikely excess of principle over personal ambition.

    • robins111

      I’m smelling the same thing

  • Bla Bla

    Bye bye Miss May! Don’t let the door hit you on the way out you stupid elitest!

    Theodore Dalrymple’s epitaph to Mrs May: “A Machiavellian without the cunning”.

    • simus1

      May was such an obvious “anyway the Brexit wind blows has my full support” totally dishonest vote whore without even a shred of Cameron’s essentially well kept, pudgy, cowardly, harmless bulldog charm.

    She thinks she won the election for her policy, not realiseing
    that a sack of rotten potatoes would have beatten
    the left and become prime minister.
