On the morning after the fire ( 6.00 AM), i saw it on the the BBC website. I could see that it was a disaster of epic proportions. I was somewhat surprised even at that early hour that there had been no official response. I straight away saw parallels with earthquakes in Italy or Greece. Yet they seem to get their disaster teams up and running almost immediately. Not here. Only now does there seem to be some sort of organisation for the survivors. I feel that this will cost the Tories dear. They were too focused on the DUP smooch up. The public can have long memories. Nick Clegg knows all about that.

Until the Tories tell her she can resign, looks broken to me and reckon she would go now if she could

For the moment it will be May's decision because no-one will risk standing against her. The party conference will need a major hurdle. Get as far as that and she could be good for two or three years.

I think it's probably the other way round, I'm sure she'd love to be well out of it but she's useful for a few more unpalatable decisions before they let her go. Tie up the deal with the dup, climbdown on the timetable for negotiating brexit, set up a public enquiry with as limited scope as she can get away with without being lynched and then finally some emotion when she does her mea culpa and falls on her sword. Once that's done why wait for conference. Her successor will be able to say they would have done things differently but regrettably have to honour the commitments she made.

Theresa May took a gamble and it backfired . Desperate Labour took a gamble on a sweetshop manifesto and it paid off and now Corbyn is on the front foot. Goes to show how much gambling there is in politics. You get it wrong and your finished. Theresa lost her gamble so time wise is anybody's guess but she can't withstand anymore mistakes.

Agreed. She is only in place because the Tories have nothing else to offer. The top brass in the party have made her own her failure until they can up with something else.

Let them own Brexit because it will tear them apart and the reality is it cannot be achieved.

Simple answer is, when she's no longer of use to The Conservative Party, she will be for a while yet.

I am not sure about the timing. If she cannot tie up a deal with the DUP, then I think she will go. If she does, then potentially after Brexit has finished, providing she does not lose a majority. As Sinn Fein never turn up the majority is really 6.

I think the Tory grandees who put her there, will not let her go for a while. If they did they would be admitting that they were wrong in forcing her to be leader. That campaign showed what the party is really like behind the scenes.

EW, you are wrong about the timetable for brexit. The is governed EU legislation not us. Last day is 28th March 2019. Although the EU negotiators want the done 6 months before, so that all agreements with the other 27 countries can be made. Remember the fiasco with the Belgium states and the Canadian deal.

Apologies NU.

I didn't say anything about the timetable for Brexit. I just agree with the gist of EW's post that she will tie up some loose ends and be gone before Conference.

Interesting observation. I applaud your optimism in the middle of overwhelming contrasting opinion.

Politics is all about momentum.

Corbyn has it - mainly because May lost it - and to be fair he's come across better in the past 2 months than he has in the previous 2 years. Another few months of popularity and he'll get the part of uncle Albert in a remake of Only Fools and Horses - whereas May will be a distant memory at the rate she's carrying on....

:lol:
Best work of fiction I have read in years. The only thing missing is the bit about Corbyn himself fitting the cladding whilst doing his weekend job in construction.
