I'm a die hard labour corbynite but I do feel sorry for Mrs May she's had a bad run of it. AIBU

No, YANBU. She’s had the toughest task and really it’s not possible to deliver a result that everyone would be happy with. Not to mention she took on the role that no one else wanted after David Cameron made a total pigs ear out of it.

She gets berated for things like losing her voice, she she still stands up and delivers a speech instead of having someone else read for her.

Tbf, I live her constituency and she’s been a brilliant MP for many years, so I might be biased on her character, instead of her position as PM.

As for Corbyn, I wish he’d shut up slagging her off and be more solution focused, he’s on a witch hunt to see her out (which she’s now succumbed to) instead of focusing on the matter in hand - leaving the EU.

Thousands of people living in poverty.
Grenfell survivors still not in permanent housing.
Victims of the Windrush scandal.

Save your sympathy for all the people she has inflicted harm on.

A friend once said to me that,whenever she has a bad day at work, she comforts herself by thinking that Theresa May will have had a worse day!

OP - YANBU

You can never please everyone in politics, I can’t believe that she is solely to blame for people living in poverty. If someone else was PM would there be no victims of poverty?

I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes.

YANBU. I abhor her politics, but I still feel sorry for her. Imagine spending your whole career working towards your dream job of PM, all the changes you’d want to make... and you end up consumed by arranging Brexit. She was even a remainder! What a thankless, soulless task. And as soon as it’s done you know you’re out.

No sympathy for the witch here. She will skulk off to a lovely retirement so.ewhere - probably with david Cameron the self servative cunt.

MorningsEleven Thu 28-Mar-19 15:22:00

I agree with HollySwift

Aurora1973 Thu 28-Mar-19 15:23:01

She made a mess of it and was voted to do so by her party. I didn't vote for her in the GE.

I don't think Corbyn or Johnson would have been any better.

No sympathy whatsoever.
She wanted the job, she's clung to the job. She's paid handsomely. She doesn't listen to anyone else. She sucks up to the wrong people.
She doesn't care or even understand poverty or about homelessness.
I feel sorry for every poor sod who has suffered under her and her government.

What HollySwift said.

Couldn't give a shit if her dream job as PM isn't working out; she'll be just fine, unlike everyone she's ever shafted and the country she's leading over a cliff.

AutumnCrow Thu 28-Mar-19 15:33:44

And she made Penny Mordaunt the Minister for Women. She may as well have given the job to Boris.

Tiresome isn't it. I wonder if Theresa May has the day off and is doing a little sympathy gathering. Fuck her.

Thanks for telling us.
No sure what use the information is though.

Apologies. I didn’t know every post on Mumsnet had to be useful... fuck knows this thread isn’t.

Especially considering the exact same thread was started three hours before it.

Ok,.apologies, I should have said pointless.
People are posting on it so I suppose the thread is useful to them.

AutumnCrow Thu 28-Mar-19 16:18:46

I'm posting on any old shit to avoid work.

I did wonder if the ghastly Nick Timothy was moving amongst us researching his latest deranged article for The Telegraph.

emiray Thu 28-Mar-19 16:23:02

YABU. She's horrible. Just like the rest of her party.

Uptheduffagai Thu 28-Mar-19 16:40:37

I’ll never feel sorry for someone who aides austerity measures. I don’t know how she sleeps at night. Oh I do actually because I doubt she cares about the millions of vulnerable people in this country who’s lives she’s ruined.

WhenISnappedAndFarted Thu 28-Mar-19 17:10:18

A feel a bit sorry for her.

Politically speaking, I don't however the woman gets flack from everywhere. My MIL spends a lot of time online having a go at her appearance, which I see a lot of people do. That's where I feel sorry for her.

YouBumder Thu 28-Mar-19 17:11:37

YABU. She’s totally fucked up and now desperate. She brought this mess on herself by calling that stupid election in 2017.

WhenISnappedAndFarted Thu 28-Mar-19 17:11:42

*I not A

TheWomanin12B Thu 28-Mar-19 17:13:17

Do not feel sorry for her. This is all her doing. Every choice she's made has been the wrong one, usually out of spite or xenophobia. She has no communication skills and she has a dreadful track record. Not a smidgen of sympathy for her. She's made no attempt to heal the country. We are more divided than ever because of her.
