So trustworthy and dependable. So profound, 'we've had enough of experts'. Such an obvious choice really at a time of national crisis. Words fail me.

Hello. Who do you suggest then? I'm not a Gove fan or a Tory, but I can't think of anyone better. At least it's not bloody Boris or JRM. The state of politics at the moment has never been worse.

Still reaping the benefits of his education policy sad

He can't even clap right.

WTF I hope you are either joking or you need your head examining!

Much as I dislike all the shenanigans that gave been going on with Brexit I think she should stay because at least she's hopefully got relationships built with the EU and experience with the others.

That said I feel it's like deciding which life jacket to use on the titanic.

This is an ironic post, surely.

I used to work in a school. I have seen what he did to the children and teachers around me. I think if he became prime minister he would make us crash out without a deal. And as someone who has medical problems and a body that rejects most foods that makes me nervous.

NicoAndTheNiners Sun 24-Mar-19 07:30:02

He's a Brexit fan isn't he? I'm worried he will happily take us out with a no deal. At least May seems to want to avoid that.

He's been keeping quiet in the hope that he can sweep in silently when Theresa falls.

I won't forget.

I think Gove is an odious duplicitous toad. I also think Gove's the only one who can get away with calling a second referendum. So I'll be glad if he's PM for a little while.

Are you insane?

Chlo1674 Sun 24-Mar-19 07:32:31

He’s a creep. Can’t stand him. Agreed there’s not much choice at the moment.

avocadochocolate Sun 24-Mar-19 07:33:00

UABU to ask. British politics is broken. Just broken.

Chlo1674 Sun 24-Mar-19 07:33:17

I don’t think many of them are trustworthy Amanduh.

The man who said that all children should be above average in maths. Scary.

PathOfLeastResitance Sun 24-Mar-19 07:34:50

He’s a disgrace.
What happened to the curriculum under his ‘guidance’ is still failing children now and will continue to do until it changes again.
He’s an arrogant little git. I have friends working in his offices who have seen the way he operates and it is disgusting.

Littlefish Sun 24-Mar-19 07:34:53

I know first hand the effect of his education policy. To have him leading the country would be genuinely disastrous.

ClariceCliffe Sun 24-Mar-19 07:37:25

I think the op was being sarcastic?

I wouldn't have a clue who could take over. I'm sure there will be a few who put themselves forward. JRM has said he has no interest in the role. BJ would be too divisive. Possibly Andrea Leadsom? Or Sajid Javid?

Let's have Ken Clark as temporary caretaker PM. He can have a cross party cabinet for Brexit which doesn't include any of this shower.

A girl can dream.

Nyancat Sun 24-Mar-19 07:41:34

Fairly horrified at the idea given his previous views on ni and the peace process.

brizzlemint Sun 24-Mar-19 07:42:59

It's got to be sarcasm.

Gove is likely to be as popular as a chainsaw at a save the trees march.

Every teacher in the land is weeping at the prospect

I think I’d prefer Jeremy Hunt actually,

I’m not kidding. That’s assuming Rudd is a no go.
