    Voted to Remain (crucial)- somehow managed to end up in charge of Brexit negotiations (which she infuriatingly insisted on pronouncing as if the word was spelled 'negociations')- banged on a great deal about Strong and Stable leadership- brazenly lied a great deal more about us leaving with or without a deal on March 29th of March 2019 despite having no intention whatsoever of us actually leaving (and quelle surprise....)- & then cried just like Maggie did when she was forced to give up her power. Continuous sabotage and betrayal- endlessly kicked the can down the round until she was stopped because of the damage she was causing the reputation of her shitty political party. Mark my words- Her successor Boris is sure to play the same game albeit in a less transparent way.

    security of a job... surely she means "jobs". people are working more jobs for fewer hours. they're not officially unemployed but they aren't earning enough to live let alone spur on the economy.

    They blustered, provaricated, dragged their feet and stalled. Just as they were directed to do. Powerful forces don't want Brexit to happen, heck they even had Jo Cox murdered {watch 'The Jo Cox Departure' on TheXvid} to sway public opinion. The October deadline will come and go and the can will get booted even further down the road. Oh...and don't trust Dodgy Boris under any circumstance, he's a placeman under strict orders not to take us out of Europe

    It will create jobs and put money into the street level economics.. instead .of Westminster.. so less money for hs2and crossrail. And when you look at it in reality . If ONLY 10% of all uk income tax payers earn so little boy are we in trouble that .. or the 4 million plumbers. Builders .electricity workers doctors . Civil servants head teachers . Corgi gas fitters mechanics software engineers bankers architects and ceo. Directors business owners ..railway drivers uni teachers uni. Bosses . Care agancy directors care home managers .. are pretty poor or in a bad state .. mmmmmmm I smell a fish.and a rat

    And as for Boris.s rise to 80*000 before paying 40 percent. Tax it the best idea . The media will come out fighting against it trying to destroy it for many and wrong reasons ..

    8.4million. Are earning less than 16000 a year in 2019 put this in perspective. A friend of mine was on 17.000* in 1996 as a quality control person for superdrug with a basic bachelor's and even then he did not have money for a flat on his . Own the same in 2004in bristol .. 18 k only got you a studio with no savings at the end of the month

    NHS Funding for Mental Health..how about making good food easily affordable instead of so bloody dear so that proper nutrition/minerals are in the diet which has a large effect on mental health.Also the high costs of everything creates such pressure on Parents they can hardly offer behavioral stability to theyre children.The basics in a modern Western country like HEATING..FOOD..WATER ..HEALTH CARE SHOULD NOT BE SO G*D DAMN EXPENSIVE..it should be the basics. Instead it is allowed to be a fairground for predatory business.

    Such a ridiculous postion created by the stupid tories. With such an important matter, a qualiied 60% referendum should have been the logical thing to do, it is legally supported and a normal thing to do in all modern democracies. A 40% cannot say anything against a 60%. With all the lies told by the Leave side and such a close result, no wonder that the UK is so divided.

    Theresa May managed to become the worst PM in history. Quite an achievement. She has probably achieved the double whammy of keeping a woman out of the office of PM for a generation.

    She achieved one thing only - anger in the country against the establishment because of her wilful mess-ups and delays on brexit. Did she think we'd forget about the vote if she tried (3 times) to push a rotten deal onto us? NO!!!! We want PROPER brexit, as we voted, and we demand the new prime minister gets us out by 31.10.19 or the country will go mad with rage. We don't care what arsewipe Dominic Grieve says, we demand what we democratically voted for.

    She achieved 3 key things.
    1. She destroyed the Tory party completely.
    2. She destroyed the 2 party establishment by dragging Labour down with her.
    3. She made it almost impossible for any woman to ever again be PM after the disaster that was Thatcher May did even more damage to the UK in less time.

    I grew up in a period of the UK joining the EEC. This was followed by, "The weeping sore's of the Euro skeptics". How do you get out with all the laws and treaties that you have signed? This is like getting married, divorce makes you poor.

    • David Wootton

      Thankyou for your kind reply!
      Well is it?
      Look at the current mess!
      The people who got us into this mess cannot even find a way for us to leave this mess.
      And at what cost to all of us!

      David Wootton - The difference is that a divorced persin is not sovereign. He is subject to the state. The UK, upon leaving the EU, will be sovereign. This is a better position.

    Also, Mays plan to just build more houses doesn't solve the problem as many wealthy individuals will just buy the houses seeing them a investment and renting them out.

      No it really isn't. She was called Maybot because she doesn't show emotion. Nothing to do with her gender.

    Why didn't she just call for a NATIONAL referendum for the people to decide whether they wanted a "soft" or "hard" Brexit? Since the politicians weren't cooperating...You technically still get a Brexit but the people would ultimately decide what KIND of Brexit...

  • bo ptah

    Theresa May is a traitor. she was actually working for the EU to keep the UK aligned with the EU to bounce us back into the EU after the next GE.. . but she was busted... She will forever and always be known as Treason May....the end.

    Let's summarise: Our politicians have comprehensively let-down the British people over decades and Mrs May continued that long tradition. We are lions led by jackasses.

  • Firsthgyhgyhuy Lastujhujhuj

    Our debt levels would not have fallen under Corbyn just the opposite. Most of this is tripe.

  • Firsthgyhgyhuy Lastujhujhuj

    This was a waste of time. For those cluless individuals who cannot think or research for themselves?

  • Firsthgyhgyhuy Lastujhujhuj

    Very little of what she did was driven by her own ideas or beliefs.
