    Ok, risking annoying our local Tories, what's happened to 'em? They can't even stick a knife in a back anymore? The shillying make 'em look clueless. Gedonwivit!

    No offense taken. I have been shouting this since she lost her snap election.

    Borrowing a term from U.S. politics, she seems like a lame-duck Prime Minister. Her policies are have no respect and are open to challenge because her own party is already loking to what her successor will do. As far as I can see, the only reason she's still there is because no one wants to swing the axe in case it becomes messy.

    Now, that's not fair. She gave it her best college try, but somehow she couldn't quite get rid of that majority.

    And Boris goes! Think he'll take her down on the way out? What are the odds?

    Why do they think that kicking her out will cause an election? Don't remember one when she got in.

    I think they stand a better chance in an election with anyone who isn't her.

    Hey, if she goes does that mean Hammond goes too? No more takebacks the day after the budget? Possibly some faint glimmer of actual competance and stability on the horizon? Please, oh, please...

    So our PM failed to fail? Think that's worse.

    Give her credit, she's great for country unity: I have never in my life seen so many people across all parties and none, from so many classes and backgrounds, agree on a PM since Brown's unfortunate gaff.

    Right now, I'd take Jack Ketch over 'er.

    I have been yelling this for weeks. I don't know about Jack Ketch, I'd take Alan B'stard party-swap and all!

    Guess the NHS must be celebrating. Hunt's gone to Foreign. Don't know anything about his replacement, Matt Hancock.

    Ah yes, Jack Ketch. A man "notorious for his barbarous inefficiency"* I wonder why you'd think of him and the current government?

    Now that gets my vote. At least then they'd have to take it seriously.

    Ben Bradley and Maria Caulfield have gone as well. I don't know who they were when they were there, but they aren't it anymore.
