Those leopard skin shoes are getting some hammering.

You never know. It could do wonders for the UK shoe manufacturing industry.... assuming that they aren't imported.

It started in the night as the referendum results went against him I expect. As with everything, if you put yourself out there you have to take the bad with the good. A politician is remembered for their mistakes; Thatcher = Poll Tax, Blair = Iraq war, Heath = 3 day week.

True. People tend to get associated with what they got wrong and tend to forget whatever they got right, or didn't make worse.

New PM Theresa May back in 2003.

A malicious prosecution for a crime which never existed. An exposé of egregious malfeasance by public officials.

May had wanted to be Britain's first female PM and was irritated
when Thatcher beat her into Number 10, claims friend.




Ambition: Theresa May puts her arm round her future husband Philip while studying at Oxford, where the then Theresa Brasier had told friends she wanted to be prime minister and was annoyed Mrs Thatcher beat her to it.

On the canvassing trail.    Theresa May first stood for Parliament in 1992 in North West Durham.

Well given Johnson's record as London Mayor, where he failed to deliver on the vast majority of his promises, I wouldn't trust him to organize a piss up in a brewery, with written instructions and in bold writing.

I guess she does not want him outside the tent pissing in.
It is a smooth move in my book.

The problem is there is no opposition
The conservatives are the only electable party

The Tories won a GE a little over 12 months ago.  DC stood down.  Five contenders entered their name into the race.  2 were eliminated by the internal voting system and 1 withdrew which left AL and TM.  AL decided to withdraw.  I don't see what qualifies AL for the role of PM anymore than many posters on this forum?

No doubt the security services started delving into her background and her cv, amongst other things, simply didn't stack up. 

I think the country is lucky to have someone of TM's calibre prepared to do the job, which is pretty much 24/7, for £143,462 pa.

A modern headmaster can earn almost that .... and have long holidays into the bargain.

TM stood head and shoulders above all the other candidates.  So glad that she made it thru. to PM.
