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.

A fundamental principle of democracy is that people can disagree with a government policy - like Brexit - without being "traitors"

We're not in Russia, OP, so fortunately the government can't jail, torture, murder dissidents like Putin does.

I've never been fond of a French Letter.


LarkDescending · 19/10/2018 09:47

OP you’d better get on to No.10 and let them know your “technical solution” to the Irish border issue pronto! Well done for solving this problem, which lots of clever people have been wrestling with since it was identified well before the referendum. You’ll save them all a lot of sleepless nights.


autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:47

We will see if no one is prepared to take over......Hmm

You might be wrong on that one sweetheart.

If you wanted us to all go live in France perhaps you shouldnt have voted to strip us of our freedom of movement? Grin

You havent answered my question btw. Why is no-one challenging TM for the party leadership if they all think she's doing such a terrible job?


PortiaCastis · 19/10/2018 09:50

The whole sorry mess that is Brexit needs to go, why is the Country being taken to economic disaster because a twat called Cameron decided to call an advisory referendum then threw his toys out of his pram and cleared off as did the idiot farage + bojo and davies resigned so are no better than useless in my book.
This Country needs stability not a divide and rule pathetic government !
Grrrr makes me so cross as brexit has already cost the Country millions yet someone in a wheelchair had their mobility car taken away because you know benefit scrounger innit. Angry
We need a decent government not bloody brexit!


autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:51

BarbarianMum I answered your question pay attention and read the thread.

TheElementsSong · 19/10/2018 09:52

Well, patriotic keyboard warrior OP? What are you actually doing about this swarming network of traitorous Remoaners that is poisoning the Brexit unicorn?

Campaigning for tougher laws? Raising funds for enlargement of prison facilities to incarcerate Remoaners? Gathering patriotic citizens' groups to detect and arrest the traitors?


treezylover · 19/10/2018 09:52

an arch extreme remainer

Desperately wishing I was going to the march so I could have this on my banner, thanks OP.

How can you be so adamant that you are now right given that you considered the vote for so long and talked long into the night? Given that there are so many brains who have long been involved in EU negotiations, EU law, the GFA, and British politics in general, really how are you so sure that you are in the right? Are you suggesting the solution is simple and the government need you to clear up this mess? It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so depressing.


Stillnotready · 19/10/2018 09:52

autumnbreeze please can you explain to me how you would resolve the Irish border?
You and your hubby must have chatted about this long into the night too.?


InspectorIkmen · 19/10/2018 09:53

Do give over David Davis couldn't control a cock in a bucket let alone be PM

The BEST comment on this thread!!


Inthebluemountains · 19/10/2018 09:53

I don't hate the UK, I love it. Which is why I don't want to see our economy ruined and thousands of already vulnerable people lose their jobs (although apparently you know better about that than people who are already actually losing their jobs) even ardent brexiteers have admitted that it'll take 50 years to recover, where does that leave the next generation?


SusanWalker · 19/10/2018 09:53

Yes anyone who has technical solutions (that work) for the Irish border should be emailing the PM. Then we can concentrate on impoverishing our whole country without any distractions. In fact I'm staring to think a lot of brexiteers don't actually want to leave the EU. They are all over Twitter banging on about technical solutions but not one of them has bothered to present their ideas to number 10. Traitors the lot of them.


ShotsFired · 19/10/2018 09:53

autumnbreeze25 So let's go with your scenario and she resigns today.

Then what? Who is your great white hope to replace her and why?
What is this mysterious saviour going to do?

(Given she is the only thing standing between us and a total Corbyn shitshow, I'd rather pick the devil we know, quite honestly.)


Satsumaeater · 19/10/2018 09:53

There is a difference between the leaving deal and the future deal.

What we are trying to agree at the moment is the leaving deal. There is no good reason not to extend the transition period to ensure a proper trade/future relationship deal can be reached which sorts out the Irish border issue (and Gibraltar, who everyone always forgets about). Yes we may pay in but we continue to benefit during that period and it also gives ever more people a chance to extend their residency and apply for citizenship. The Brexiteers would destroy peoples' lives for dogma and it's simply not good enough.


Clandestino · 19/10/2018 09:54

And that is before even starting to deal with the new Irish Problem..

The day after Brexit when all the discussions started, everybody was going Scotland, Scotland, Scotland ......
I was looking at it and saying, are you mad, you stupid idiots? Scotland is the least of your worries. It's Northern Ireland you should be worried about because the Good Friday Agreement just went up in flames.
2.5 years later and the deluded Brexiters haven't copped on yet. The only person that did is Jacob Rees-Mogg who sincerely doesn't give a shit whether blood will flow or not as long as his money is secure in Ireland.

I wish all these eu remainers would do the decent thing and go and live in France. If they hate the UK so much WHY are they still here??

Where to start on the stupidity of such statement?


user1490465531 · 19/10/2018 09:55

I'm pretty sure the EU will be laughing it's head off at a protest dedicated to tell them how great they are and how we cannot live without them.
How about the UK get a backbone and say we will be stronger and we can exsist without the EU.


BarbarianMum · 19/10/2018 09:56

You haven't answered my question. Confused

My question is "why is no one in the Tory party challenging TM for the leadership if they think she's doing such a terrible job?"


TheElementsSong · 19/10/2018 09:56

Where to start on the stupidity of such statement?

I wouldn't even try. I'd just periodically C&P it back onto the thread. Say, every 10 posts or so.


autumnbreeze25 · 19/10/2018 09:56

We live in a democracy.

Most of the remainers on here have conveniently forgotten that small detail. The civilisation and the structures that support our country depend on a majority vote.

The majority in this case was to leave the EU.


Because anyone with half a brain can see that the EU is developing into a super state, with an army, a parliament and all the rest. There is zero support for the UK to join the EU superstate, and therefore many leavers voted out. The EU by stealth have taken more and more power away from nation states over the years gradually. We did not vote to join the EU as it is today, we voted for a trading relationship.

So we voted to leave, to become independent again and that is the wish of the majority vote. We will have a much larger crisis if the vote is not respected.

You can't seriously want Jacob Reese -abortion is evil but hey if i make money off of it its just business- Mogg in.
The bloke is pure evil.
Theresa May has been dumped with a shit job and hasn't legged it like David Cameron did so she has got that going for her.


BigChocFrenzy · 19/10/2018 09:57

Remember the look of horror on Johnson's face the morning after the referendum

Many Tory Leave leaders never expected or even wanted to win
The referendum was all about sorting out the long-running Tory civil war over the EU

Johnson expected to be the new peacemaker PM, consoling defeated Tory Leavers
He obviously hadn't a clue what to do once Leave won

I wish he had become PM:
Those responsible for the Leave vote should have had full responsibilty for delivering Brexit.

May appointed 3 Leave ministers to carry out Brexit, but 2 of them have run away

So eventually she ended up trying to do it herself
Unfortunately she doesn't have much clue either, but at least she is trying

Once she retires, Tory Leavers will blame her for everything


ShotsFired · 19/10/2018 09:57

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.

What a peculiar thing to spotlight.

Was the ballot paper - any ballot paper, actually - issued to you as a couple? Was it designated as a decision that couples should always vote the same? Why is your husband's private vote any of your business anyway (and vv)?

This is a very odd thread. Like you have started an argument with no point and no end.
