1922 committee adjourned at 5.00. Scheduled to re-meet at 6pm. Brady in with Whips.

They think it's all over.

Theresa May is the Keith Richards of politics. She'll still be hanging on regardless.

Yep, that's a point. Julian Smith's meeting with the 1922 committee lasted precisely 2 minutes, he told them that she is not resigning tonight

MP tells me Chief Whip has told 22 exec May not going tonight. So ball is now in court of 22. "We've got to change the rules tonight to get her out. Who does she think she is? Imelda Marcos?'

Sorry lads, I'm still getting my head around the inner workings of British politics. If she does go, does another Tory leader get elected immediately and who becomes PM?

Iirc, the Tory party would have to elect a new leader who would then form a government. There'd be an interim PM. The new leader would become PM, but remember, the Tories don't have a majority

So it's a complete mess with Boris first off the rank?

She needs a couple more days to beat Gordon Brown.
Another week and she will have overtaken Wellington.

There are probably 10 wannabees who are keen to take over from her and have been putting campaigns together
Johnson is loved by the albeit dwindling and aging membership but no so by the parliamentary party.
This is likely to be a major shitfight

Makes no difference to history. She is easily the worst PM in my lifetime if not of all time

James Slack was appointed Theresa May's political spokesman shortly after that.

May in lock down in the panic room at No. 10. Cameron in his garden shed.

If the Libdems could come up with some sort of credible leader O'd vote for them in a heartbeat at the next GE. Can't see myself voting Tory again for a long time, if ever.

Plenty of revisionism by those responsible for choosing and puffing up Theresa May.

In the spirit of peace, I believe you can hold your head high (for once ;) ) in having recognised May's personal inadequacies from the off :thumbup:

When did the EU give us until? Wasn't it August some time? Parliament really is not working. Guy Fawkes was just 400 years too early.

I’d have thought it’s the end for labour and the tories after the recent shitshow. Both need to split.

I’d love Gilbert and Sullivan to be alive and write this whole farce into a upbeat yet snide opera.

If you were Boris, Sajid, etc, would you actually want to take over now? The Tory party is ungovernable for the foreseeable future. And there's no majority for any agreement with the EU. Even if we have a second referendum it's probable that the leavers would win it (a while ago I asked a People's Vote campaigner about what they'd do if a further vote confirmed the first one and she said it wouldn't matter because it was the best way to show protest whatever the result!)

There's just no way for a Tory government to stagger on with a DUP crutch.

Surely a General Election is now inevitable, with the incredible - and terrifying - prospect of a Corbyn government.

Who would want to be the Tory PM who lost to the most useless party leader of the last three centuries?

I think a caretaker fall guy followed by a self-administered uppercut and some regrouping is the best the Tories can do now.

Roll on the power cuts, super tax, stand pipes, runaway inflation, Israeli boycott and shouty union convenors on the news every night...

It's why she's still there. No one wants to either wield the knife or take over this shit show and (it seems) no one is prepared to be the stalking horse.

I genuinely believe May chose party over country and she's managed to fúck them both up.

Not just ungovernable, but unelectable. Maybe for a generation, maybe longer.

Whatever happens post Brexit, the Tories will take the blame (let's not kid ourselves, there's not going to be anything to take credit for)
