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.

@Pavlova Yes, you'd think a university professional wouldn't need to vote as a couple. Reminds me of the ex pats being interviewed the morning of the result. I saw several older women saying "My husband voted leave, I didn't know either way, so I voted the same as my husband"

Who exactly is that? BoJo? Cameron? Farage? Corbyn?

Is this that elusive mythical being of a Brexiteer admitting they’re not quite happy with how things are panning out? Please stay, we all really need your opinions on this shitshow you voted for and were warned about a billion times 🙄

Even if you voted remain you have a duty to the support the best outcome for the country.

I think they are. By supporting the UK to stay. Wink

As for May, it's funny you haven't asked where are all those who campaigned for Brexit.

I doubt any Tory wants to pick up the pieces now, even if May resigned.
And for the options that would, do you want them at the helm?

Mrs JRM is a great friend of one of my many children. We have so much in common. Oh, my apologies, we don't like to use the word common.

You're absolutely right OP. A woman has no place in silly meetings and trying to look important. Of course she cannot hold a decent argument in Brussels. They're talking complicated sentences, she's talking sprouts.

YANBU OP- get that woman back into the kitchen where she belongs - peeling Brussels and boiling them for Britain 🇬🇧!

We decided on our vote leave as a couple, as many married people did, so what? It is what most people do when they are married, we spoke long into the night about the referendum before and after.

We should leave now, and David Davis or JRM should be the one to do it. I hope they are already planning to get shot of her. Genuinely her time is up.

And yet for some reason we have lots of posts on here suddenly supporting TM

Can you point out where anyone has actually stated they SUPPORT TM? I can't see any. Saying that replacing her now waste valuable time is not implying support. University educated professional ought to understand language.

It could be argued that voting Brexit was treason, by OP's reasoning.

Yes can’t wait to see the banners at tomorrow’s march.
‘We’re nothing without EU’
‘EU to me are everything’
‘Nothing compares to EU’

& these are for real.

I’m cringing already.

Don't Fight With Halfwits On The Internet Day never mind day, I think I need this tatooed on my brain as ongoing policy forever.
What a waste of time and energy arguing with a person you've never met who won't answer any questions properly and who you don't even know either exists or believes what they're saying.
Mildly entertaining at best if there's nothing else to do.
But there's always something better to do, right?

So why is no-one challenging her OP ? Surely it would be an easy challenge to win, as no one likes what she's doing?

TL;DR

Someone who voted conservative now regrets doing so.

It's not taking the side of the EU to say there was no way they were ever going to give the cake & cherries deal that Leavers were promised.

You were lied too.
The government is still lying to you

If they had just looked at the standard deals on offer and chosen one - instead of always claiming to be "special" - the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement would have been signed months ago

Or, more correctly, Brexit campaigners being charged with treason for lying to voters about the consequences of leaving.

I would suspect a technical solution could be in place to solve the border issue.

Shock- is that the best you've got?

David Cameron shouldn't have been allowed to resign imo. He took us into this mess and he should be legally obliged to see it through. Off whistling spending his millions no doubt. Boris the same. Pure political negligence.

TM must be thrilled she now has MN on her side (abeit temp of course because they hate her really) but she is in the hardcore remainers' good books because she has managed to stuff up brexit along with Robbins the traitor. I am not sure she will be very grateful though guys, I don't think she wants to be in your club, she is rather hoping to hold onto her job after all.

The UK is a democracy, or it was. Lets hope it can still be.

To those Leavers "cringing" about the Remainers march:
why don't you organise your own marches ?

Oh, right, Farage organised one march and about 100 people and a dog turned up

It's very rude of you to ignore me OP. I'm the only one on here supporting you. Still, in your defence I expect you've gone off to do something more worthwhile such as making your husband his packed lunch and a nice flask of soup.

I feel desperately sorry for TM. I don't think she really wanted the job, but I think she hoped she could get some sort of compromise that would sort of satisfy most people. Where the sad fact is that whatever she comes up with is doomed to be unpopular. ANY deal she manages to make is going to displease most remain voters and probably over half of the leave voters. There is no possibility of satisfying the "wants" of every leave voter, as their requirements are all so disparate.

In fact, the way things are looking now the outcome that will suit most people (not a majority) would be to cancel the whole thing. It would fuck off leave voters, but most of them are going to be fucked off either way.

And that is before even starting to deal with the new Irish Problem... I hear so many people blithely say it isn't really a problem, and everyone is exaggerating, but have heard no actual workable solutions. Other than to keep our customs aligned with the EU - in which case, what is the point of it all? I suppose the other option is to renounce NI as part of the UK, walk away and pretend the ensuing political fireworks across the Irish Sea are none of our business and nothing to do with us. After all, we have done that before to other countries, I suppose...
