Could be hysterical if the Labour and SNP MPs don't back this tomorrow and she has to wait 3 more years

What a sad choice we've got.  A would be Mrs T, a bearded saddo, a Harry Potter lookalike and Nutjob Nuttall.

Well, whatever nevermind

Sounded nervous to me and it all came over that she'd been briefed that without this she would lose the Commons vote on the eventual EU-UK divorce deal

Last weekends poll is a far better position for her than she would be after such a 2018 humiliation so this is her only way of being PM in 2020.   What's going to be interesting is what else she puts in the manifesto.  I can see her transferring the foreign aid budget to a new dept for kicking peasants

Well, whatever nevermind

I see that Osbourne has decided not to stand so that he can 'fight for Britain' as editor of the Evening Standard. In other words he knows that if he stood he'd get a hammering in the polls that he would never live down so he's going to save himself the humiliation and make a comeback at some point in the future when the peasants have forgotten just how much of a smug tosser he was.

I'm disappointed that he isn't standing, I'd have paid to see that smug look wiped off his face when his constituents tell him to bugger off at the poles.

Except as he has one of the safest seats in the country so no way was he going to get hammered so frankly I've seen better theories.

His problem was more subtle.  He was going to tough it out until 2020 when Tatton would no longer exist as a constituency and as an excommunicated non person by Saint Theresa he'd have no 2020 constituency to stand for under the new boundaries. He could go off to his 6 alternative careers as some sort of supposed martyr and probably imagined he'd become some sort of sub cult figure with a media career .

All got torn up when she went for an election on the current boundaries  lol:.

Have to say if he and May were both drowning and there was only one lifeline, I know which I'd throw it to and it wouldn't be that lying cow.   Osborne may be inept, charmless, self centred and with dodgy social values but he has at least played with a straight bat.




Well, whatever nevermind
