Sat watching Theresa Mays speech. Wow, to say I am impressed is an understatement. What does everybody else think?

The80sweregreat Thu 30-Jun-16 10:10:02

I agree, her digs at Boris were clear and she seemed to speak sense. I am no Tory but she seems a bit more level headed and will reach out to the Remainers too. interesting times.

I think she is the best choice now, I was undecided, but she is clear, concise, reassuring and intelligent. No gimmicks, just plain facts. This is what we need.

Paniniswapx3 Thu 30-Jun-16 10:15:37

I agree too Op - think she's definitely the best choice.

sw15mum Thu 30-Jun-16 10:16:50

Agree as well- go Theresa!

Cjamm Thu 30-Jun-16 10:23:01

If the choice is between her, Gove or Boris. I'll take her over dumb & dumber.

I think Theresa could be perfect but I'm concerned that Gove running could split her vote.

I'm also not convinced in the slightest that any of them are going to give us the general election we want.

I dont want a general election playduh I happen to agree with May that it will just introduce further instability and give UKIP a shoe in at the expense of Labours current ridiculous pantomime. I think the country needs time to adjust without further disruption IMHO...

RortyCrankle Thu 30-Jun-16 14:05:59

She does nothing for me, I hope Gove wins.

Thefuturecouldbebright Thu 30-Jun-16 14:07:38

Gove? 😱😱😱 God, I hope not!

Oibeer Thu 30-Jun-16 14:15:05

Yes, she was frick** great.
Clever choice of outfit, nice speaking voice, comes across really well (not shady like Boris of Gove) and ...... the daughter of a vicar. We know of one other powerful female politicians who is the daughter of a vicar.

Go Ms May!

RiverTam Thu 30-Jun-16 14:23:13

She certainly does come across well and that is important in modern politics. But I think she is utterly heartless, she is very against any kind of human rights act which I find completely unforgivable and very stupidly she stopped foreign students staying here after graduating, which was preposterous and makes me question her judgement. Also I understand that she has had a real clash of interests in that she is in charge of the police but her husband is a director of G4S who have benefitted from her 'privatisation' of parts of the police force.

I think life for a lot of people would get even worse under her.

Yes I am supporting Teresa May. She speaks like a PM, has loads of experience negotiating in Europe and isn't Gove!!!
I have a feeling that Sarah Vine is (the only one) backing her husband on MN today!!

RortyCrankle Thu 30-Jun-16 14:27:12

And me chilled

Oibeer Thu 30-Jun-16 14:32:04

grin chilled

CowVersusMouse Thu 30-Jun-16 14:32:37

Not a fan but she's so much better than gove.

LittleLionMansMummy Thu 30-Jun-16 14:34:21

If most normal members of the public (including me) want it to be May, I'm willing to bet that it won't be her....

It'll be whoever the Sun comes out in support of.

Oibeer Thu 30-Jun-16 14:34:31

Why is the DF seemingly endorsing TM? confused

Oibeer Thu 30-Jun-16 14:35:04

x post little & the DF.

Oibeer Thu 30-Jun-16 14:35:35

so sick of these right wing 'papers'

chilledmonday Thu 30-Jun-16 14:38:38

Surely it won't be Gove! He has outed himself as a toxic backstabber. He shafted DC by supporting Boris and then shafted Boris by declaring to be running in the leadership contest. Such Machiavellian tendencies must not be rewarded!

LittleLionMansMummy Thu 30-Jun-16 14:40:05

I reckon the Sun will support Gove or Fox. Anyone know yet?
