I must say I am feeling sorry for the poor thing. Politics is a real cut and thrust career isn't it ? You need skin like a rhino to cope with the pressure and the fallout . It makes me wonder why on earth anyone would want to be part of it. Defo not for the faint hearted. I know they are paid well but even so .....

Hear, hear Wine

Yabu. She called the election. She didn't campaign. She didn't connect with voters. She didn't appear in the leaders debate. I don't feel sorry for her at all.


HarrietKettleWasHere · 12/06/2017 18:12

No I do not.

She hardly won the job in a competition did she? She knew what she was doing and she gambled and looks a right tit now.

The 'poor thing' HmmGrin

Anyway OP YABU because someone else has started this thread already.


AperolOnIce · 12/06/2017 18:13

Don't waste your pity on her unless you're sure she'd waste hers on you. Somehow I doubt it.


WhatABaklava · 12/06/2017 18:14

Nope. Not one tiny little bit.


troodiedoo · 12/06/2017 18:14

Yabu. Anyone in favour of animal cruelty gets no sympathy from me.


Pinkheart5919 · 12/06/2017 18:14

Didn't we have this thread already?

She took a gamble and lost! There was no need to call an election, yet so sure she'd win the majority she went ahead and called one anyway.

I'd save feeling sorry for people that deserve it


CitrusSun · 12/06/2017 18:15

You must have a huge ego to think you can govern a country so no, I don't feel sorry for her


troodiedoo · 12/06/2017 18:16

Plus she'll clean up with a book deal and speaking circuit when it's all over.


Boopboopboop · 12/06/2017 18:17

Haven't we had this thread already??

I have no sympathy for her in the slightest.


Mrsmadevans · 12/06/2017 18:17

Didn't see original poster, will join it now thanks for the heads up

TM said that voting for JC would bring a weak minority government propped up by a party that is interested only in a small part of the UK. This would be called a coalition of chaos and would be the opposite of her strong and stable government. Well, JC didn't win, so we are safe from such a doomsday option. Oh, wait a moment... Sorry for her- certainly not.


Awwlookatmybabyspider · 12/06/2017 18:24

Oh FFS. Not another poor Theresa thread.


QuiteLikely5 · 12/06/2017 18:30

op get your tin hat quickly!


fakenamefornow · 12/06/2017 18:33

I feel sorry for her as well.

I'm a Remain voter who fucking hates the Tories so things must be really bad if she even has my pity. This doesn't change the fact it's all her own fault though.


QuiteLikely5 · 12/06/2017 18:41

The media are unaware that this is a predominately labour website.

Odd that.


EdmundCleverClogs · 12/06/2017 18:47

I'll save my pity for those who need it - the ones who don't get paid enough to eat, the teachers working every hour given to them, those who are on a never ending NHS waiting list, the ill and disabled who are told told to go out to work or face starving to death, and many many more.

Feel sorry for Theresa May? Not whilst there's breath in my body, never will I feel sorry for that fool woman who fell on her own sword.


NotACleverName · 12/06/2017 18:58

Sorry but there's no magic sympathy tree.


harderandharder2breathe · 12/06/2017 19:05

ffs we already had this exact thread earlier!

YABU to start a duplicate and YABU to feel sorry for her. She has only herself to blame since she's the one who called the snap election and then led an absolute shambles of a campaign

Save you sympathy for the people who have suffered and will suffer because of her cuts.


ScarlettFreestone · 13/06/2017 14:37

Not even a tiny little bit.

She made her own bed.


Jengnr · 13/06/2017 14:39

Fuck her.
