Theresa May needs to resign!

I have supported Theresa May throughout the last few years, and I voted for her in the elections confident she could be trusted. I considered her to be a practical, capable and considered leader at the helm for what was always going to the most challenging situation of our times.

However this trust has been replaced with a pressing need for her to either resign immediately or to be pushed out now.

TM in the last 24 hours has shown that she has failed miserably and she needs to go.

Where did the blazing leader that was going to fight to the end? She limped into the meeting and limped out conceding immediately! My eight year old could do a better job!

The EU were never ever going to give the UK any kind of 'deal'. This was never their intention. I am absolutely amazed anyone is even talking about a deal anymore. This idea is totally dead in the water. There is no deal, there was never going to be, and it is now time for a change in the leadership with full preparation to leave without a deal or switch to the Canada option. Even TM doesn't want to talk about the Chequers deal anymore.

We should walk away now or be forever in a limbo of a vassal state.

There is no way we should agree to any kind of extension that means we will still be paying enormous bills to the EU but will have no influence whatsoever over the decisions made. This is utterly unacceptable and leaves us in a very dangerous situation. How TM has managed to back herself into a corner of this nature is just beyond me, she has let the entire country down.

The traitor that is Oliver Robbins should do the decent thing and leave, this is all down to his 'advice' he has screwed her over properly for sure as he was really working for the other side all along (he can pick up his payment and pension from the EU on his way out)

I am incredulous that Theresa May is still in post, and I hope by the end of the week she will be replaced by someone capable of steering the country out of this unholy mess.

I have never considered her speaking style or conduct to be the polished or confident and nothing like the sleek Cameron and Clegg et al. I did consider her to be trustworthy and competent, but as the months have rolled by it has become quite obvious she is out of her depth, she should have left months ago in my view.

I would replace her with DD or JRM in a heartbeat.

I am sorry you are going to lose your job, but I doubt that is because of brexit.

Really? Are you Mrs R-M?


onalongsabbatical · 19/10/2018 09:10

DD or JRM as PM?
People, there's no arguing with it, it's a bot at best.


ShatnersWig · 19/10/2018 09:10

JRM? He's like some villain from a Dickensian novel! Oh, that's JRM who has inordinate amounts of wealth which he cleverly moved offshore so Brexit won't effect his interests whatsoever, and who has admitted that it will take around 50 years for the UK to "recover". That's David Davis who, as the man in charge of Brexit, kept saying the negotiations would be easy, we'll get what we want, won't take long and lied to Parliament about what was going on, and who - like Boris and Cameron - simply walked away.

PS I've never voted Labour.

Best way is for Boris and other backseat drivers to take charge and show how easy it all would be.

Build a wall in NI close down Eurostar, Airbus and any company whose livelihood depends on trade with EU.

That's what was plainly written on the ballot (I can't imagine No meaning anything else unless it was open for 18 million possible interpretations).

This will surely raise median income and wealth of those who need it most.


Nightmanagerfan · 19/10/2018 09:12

You do realise that no one “voted” for TM. This is not the US.


Ellisandra · 19/10/2018 09:12

Why do you doubt it?
I will lose my job if there is no deal that allows me to work in the EU.
I currently travel 3 weeks in 4 to our offices all across Europe.
If I can’t get a work permit, I’m out of a job.
If I can get work permits but it’s expensive and time consuming, my company will recruit from EU member states not from the UK.
It’s very rude of you to say I won’t lose my job because of Brexit when I’ve just told you that I will.


Clandestino · 19/10/2018 09:14

Darling, do us all a favour and go and read up few facts on Good Friday Agreement. Mwah.


VickieCherry · 19/10/2018 09:14

No, there never was going to be a deal. Because it is legally impossible without breaking the Good Friday Agreement. There is certainly never going to be a deal which benefits the UK. Why on earth would the EU allow that?

This was all made clear before the referendum.

If we can't have someone sensible in charge I'm fine with TM staying. Better that than one of her lunatic Brexit fanboy colleagues. (But please, please can Keir Starmer launch and win a leadership challenge right fucking now.)


user1490465531 · 19/10/2018 09:14

Agree OP a remain supporter should never of taken the role of guiding us through Brexit.
TM seems scared to take any direct action,scared to make any decisions and seems very unconvincing in the way she comes across.


autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:14

I am one of nearly 18 million, most leavers have had enough of the hardliners on MN so they simply don't post here.

But I will post here, and I will say that I do not regret my vote for a minute. I am a university educated professional and I considered my vote with the utmost care. I researched relentlessly in the run up to the vote, and we decided finally on the day as a couple.

I am not Mrs RM but I respect her as I do all the partners and wives of politicians of all parties.

The EU really have shown themselves to be the corrupt and morally bankrupt institution they are famous for being. I have remainer friends that are despairing of them now. We are agreed on many more things than we were two years ago, the main point being that May needs to leave.

YANBU - we’re hoping David Davis takes over ASAP!

But you should have posted this tomorrow morning. They’ll all be on their march so we’ll have some peace for a few hours 🙏

This x a zillion

No you don't. You really really don't. Only your pretend friends.


TheElementsSong · 19/10/2018 09:16

Have we had Agincourt yet? Grin


zsazsajuju · 19/10/2018 09:17

Yeah - Canada trade agreement would be fab. Except given that we are already Eu members it would destroy our economy. Oh and violate the good Friday agreement and possibly lead to a return to violence in ni. Oh and wouldn’t deal with the issue of all uk people who live elsewhere in Europe.

But apart from that, ideal


autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:18

Don't embarrass yourself by calling me a 'bot' when I am simply saying what millions of other people are saying and thinking. Even if they will not speak up on here.

OP posts:

autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:19

Oh yes the march of the traitors is tomorrow!

I am amazed and embarrassed for them in equal measure.

Blinded by ignorance.

ShatnersWig · 19/10/2018 09:22


Thanks for providing me with such a good laugh this morning


TheElementsSong · 19/10/2018 09:22

I'd quite like a Traitorous Remoaner badge or T-shirt. Or perhaps a flag?

Or maybe I could ice it on some biscuits.


autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:22


I have lots of friends, some of which voted remain, they are not very displeased with the lack of respect the EU have shown the UK, they were hoping for a good deal and stay in some form of customs union and are annoyed that the EU have done nothing at all to make this possible. Some are saying we should actually just leave. YOU may not feel that way, but you are not everyone are you.

OP posts:

InspectorIkmen · 19/10/2018 09:23

Traitors now? Gosh - you really are a one aren't you? You really haven't thought this through at all have you?


ShatnersWig · 19/10/2018 09:23

Serious question for you then @autumnbreeze - how do you think the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland can be solved without wrecking the Good Friday Agreement?
