To be annoyed that Theresa May said she will leave the job of PM even if they win the election.

I have heard this from several people (including someone on here,) that Theresa May said she will step down from the job as PM whether the Tories win or not.

How can she be fighting so hard to win, when she just intends to leave the position of PM anyway?

Where did she say that? Who is suggested as follow on?

fake news ?

Neverknowing Tue 30-May-17 12:32:54

I've not seen this anywhere?
Interesting if it's true though, makes no sense to me seen as so many true labour supporters are voting for her as she's 'already started brexit negotiations'. I think she's an idiot, it's such a shame that our second female PM is hated as well. Going to make it very difficult for women in politics in the future sad

I've not heard this...if true though it makes you wonder if the reason for the election is because she's had a titfull of the job already and thought it might be an easy way out if Labour actually managed to win.

If she actually said this, it would be big news. Go to any news site. Is it there? No. Stop believing rumours with no verification.

GoldfishHaveNoMemory Tue 30-May-17 12:44:55

Link? I have idly wondered if she is trying to throw the election as she doesn't believe in brexit.

Who has said that? Any reputable source? I doubt it. Sounds vanishingly unlikely.

bibbitybobbityyhat Tue 30-May-17 12:45:56

Why would you start a thread like this based on a rumour?

Such a waste of time!

CaoNiMartacus Tue 30-May-17 12:48:32

This is the sort of thread that makes me suspect some form of infiltration by paid posters...

user1493759849 Tue 30-May-17 12:57:52

I promise I am not making this up. And I am not a paid poster, who has been told to write this. Sorry, I don't have a link as I just heard a few people talking about it. I wish I could remember which thread I saw it on. I will see if I can find it.

If you guys have heard no such thing, then maybe it is 'fake news.'

Thanks for your posts. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has heard this?

She will leave with one of those ceremonial Tory swords in her back. She knows they’re at the sharpeners being readied.

LadyPW Tue 30-May-17 13:01:13

She hasn't said it all. It was rumoured before she called the election & she put pay to the rumour by saying explicitly that she would serve the full 5 years.
Another stirring Labour-voter thread methinks.....

user1493759849 Tue 30-May-17 13:05:35

Found it! (Where I saw someone say it on here.)

Second post on Page 1. (By bastardgodarkly...)

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/2941868-To-think-the-Tories-dont-want-to-win?pg=1

So is the general consensus on here that she didn't say it then? (and isn't going to leave?)

Bluntness100 Tue 30-May-17 13:11:15

She has not said she will step down. This is just rumour from folks who don't like her.

user1493759849 Tue 30-May-17 13:12:37

Did you hear the rumour too then @Bluntness100?

littlehandcuffs Tue 30-May-17 13:12:57

What a load of crap! Paid bl**dy poster.

Bluntness100 Tue 30-May-17 13:21:01

No, but I saws the media interviews speculating by some folks saying she'd go if brexit went tits up. It's just gossip.

It's like me posting and saying corbyn will step down if he gets in. And Abbott will take his place. Just folks making crap up. Or a politicjab saying corbyn won't stay in his opinion. Made up nonsense.

HoneyDragon Tue 30-May-17 13:26:26

This is popping up all over fb and Twitter with nothing to back it up.

Honestly the days of parties having to organise smear campaigns are over ....the shite posted about Corbyn and May on fb and Twitter does it all for them.

user1493759849 Tue 30-May-17 13:41:37

Oh FFS @littlehandcuffs shut up! If you've nothing to add to the thread other than conspiracy theories about the OP, then just do one.

Thanks to the others for your contributions. Seems it may be a rumour then, as there is no concrete evidence. As I said though, I have heard it from a few sources.

I am happy to accept it's a rumour though. Hopefully it is, as it would be unfair and wrong for her to get people to vote for her, and then leave as soon as they win the election. (If they do!)

CrossWordSalad Tue 30-May-17 13:44:17

Fairly desperate

littlehandcuffs Tue 30-May-17 13:49:27

You are the OP though? And you have come on here to spread a lie, why would I not assume you are paid or from a group that will want to do this for your own gain?

picklemepopcorn Tue 30-May-17 14:36:28

I'm glad OP posted this, as I read it elsewhere and wondered what it was all about. As a result of OPs post, I know to ignore it.

Thanks OP.

You are welcome @picklemepopcorn. smile I am pleased to discover it's fake news too.

And it's OK; I am ignoring the baiting. There's always one who is determined to try and cause trouble... And they are best ignored. smile

Thanks to everyone else who contributed.

HoneyDragon Tue 30-May-17 21:28:14

If it helps I'm fairly certain I'm not new and although quite happy to paid to post electoral bollocks on here no fuckers offers me any cash, which frankly is rude; I was going to post this very op the other day to see if anyone had any credence to give it or knew where it had started. But by today it Is seen it umpteen times so figured it was just another blurb.
