May has been in politics for a long time, but seems just very meh especially given her previous performance. Just keeps repeating strong leadership like a broken record.

Can't Gemma Collins or Lily Allen be in the running? They'd probably not be as bad as trump!

I agree with you, a self made person with a bit of business acumen who would rock the establishment, would be a breath of fresh air.

But, but, but, that does sound like Trump.

Our whole political system is broken. We need centre-led government. What a mess this country is in and it's going to get so much worse!
Would Gina do?

Stewart Lee!

Would Gina do? Please God no!

Harry Hill?

I read a quote years ago along the lines of 'anyone who puts themselves forward to rule the country should immediately be barred from ever ruling the country' and I think it is true - we should be suspicious of their motives...

I work in 'big business' and over the years have come across plenty of people who would be great at running government departments, if not the country.
But to do it for a salary of £80k, and have the Sun and Mirror rooting through your bins?
Civilised meetings or PMQs? Board dinners in fancy restaurants or posing with despots on trade missions?
Fuck that for a game of soldiers

We need the guy from Designated Survivor.

Ooh YANBU. We shouldn't let election candidates stand if they have run for election before. And who needs political parties... what a crock. The winning candidate should employ their family (and ultra rich mates) to run the country. You know, just like in a family business. Drain the swamp! grin

There is someone ridiculously unqualified to be PM - Jeremy Corbyn

Hitchhikers' guide to the Galaxy. The ruler of the universe is an old man who lives in a shed with a cat and has a slim grasp on reality.

If he lives in a shed with a cat, does that make the mice even more furious?

That sounds like Donald Trump, and I'm not sure we're there yet...

What about David Tennant? He's nearly as good-looking as Justin Trudeau, and why should Canada be the only one to have photogenic politicians at the helm?

Is that the level we are aiming for? It's a bit like saying that your lunch of dog shit smeared on broken glass isn't quite as bad the option with added poison and spear tips.
