Theresa May is in serious trouble

Doesn't look like she will get support for Brexit.

18. Sadly, yes

It stinks for those who opposed Trump and opposed Brexit, but the voters had their say (although there are rightfully questions about the voting process). But there's no turning back on Brexit and no turning back on Trump, so until a new government is in place and can reverse course or make major adjustments, serious consequences will be realized.

23. They would have a point but

Remember that Trump did not get a majority of votes. He's an undemocratically elected leader.

26. Unfortunately. Only half that is true.

Less popular vote. Check.

But...as you well know, our “democratic” process are based on the electoral college. I’m not a fan but we consider 271ev as the win.

27. You can call it a democratic process all you want

But if somebody with less votes wins then it is inherently undemocratic.

North Korea call themselves the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. I don't think anybody's really buying that one.

by popular vote. And if Hillary had won in the same way as Trump did you wouldn't hear a peep here about him winning the popular vote.

40. Oh and, if we were to ever win an election the same way you better believe I wouldn't complain about

it. But that has way more to do with the fact that the Repukes have now won that way twice so turnabout is fair play. It wouldn't be because I think that the electoral college is a good or democratic thing.

reeks of fuckery.

"compensation".. how about not fucking deporting people who have been there decades, paying fucking taxes and contributing to the economy.

She pushed this vile racist crap when she was at the Home Office - doesn't know crap about Windrush folks history. They begged our people to come after theirs were killed in the war.

33. Thanks for this link. It is truly vile and racist what May and her crew have done to people who

came to the UK in the spirit of helpfulness and hard work.

On another note, I’m a fan of “Great British Menu” and it was wonderful seeing so many top chefs in the UK bring more positive attention to the contributions made by the Windrush generation during their tribute to the NHS season.

What was done will never be forgiven. What's interesting is that Brexit means they now need more economic ties with us so the fake apology had to come.

35. It's a full series each year. Look for series 13, episode 7 for one of the Windrush tributes.

There were more, but can’t think of which episodes they were in at the moment.

Would be funny if it wasn't so serious.
The sheer level of incompetence over the last couple of years is staggering.
If you think it's fucked now wait for that creepy bastard Rees-Mogg to be in charge.

so hypocritical, he moved his investment company to Dublin, in preparation for Brexit !

The cretins are all waiting to for the vote on the bill first, if it doesn't pass then it's going to get messy. As you said in another post, not many options left for poor Theresa.

8. Hi Malaise



We should be clear, May was ALWAYS in trouble ! She's only in the position because those cowards (Johnson, Davies, Gove etc) didn't want to be the one going down in history as having "delivered" Brexit. May doesn't have a long term future as PM....push is coming to shove.

Also, the Brexit deal she agreed to, just allows the UK to trade under the EU umbrella, until they get their shit together (which could be years). During that time, they will have given up their MEPs, any EU Commissioners and probably representation at Prime Ministerial level meetings.

The plan put out by Downing Street, basically gives her 3 attempts at trying to get this through. If she fails at that point, then she either resigns, calls a General Election or goes to a Referendum (I think there may well be two, as there are three options).

20. He's writing his memoirs, and putting out feelers about a return to politics

which got roundly laughed at (he thought he'd make a jolly decent Foreign Secretary, apparently). The memoirs are, I guess, proving a bit difficult to spin positively. "How I Screwed GB as Well as a Pig" isn't a title people would pay for.
