Re: Theresa May - Who Will Succeed Her? - Formerly 'Theresa May'

I just wish the poison dwarf Bercow would leave - he is the biggest obstacle to Brexit,  can speaker be sacked for being obviously biased ?

Well the MPs could table a Commons motion formally calling for the Speaker to resign. If he refused to stand down, that could force Bercow to make a formal ruling about whether such a motion was in order. So back to square one it is then.

Time to change or amend the Consitution?

Case against Boris Johnson thrown out today by high court, should never have got that far... Now we can concentrate on getting a proper Brexit PM into number 10 Downing Street ( not necessarily Boris though).

What a difference a day makes!

We saw Theresa May recently outside Downing Street tearfully announcing her departure, then in the past 2 days we have seen a different Theresa May at the D-Day ceremonies representing the Nation in a very dignified way.

Re: Theresa May - Who Will Succeed Her? - Formerly 'Theresa May'

Now that Theresa May is no longer leader of the Conservatives as from today and is only a caretaker Prime Minister, what hope for a return to democracy I wonder. Are we as many suspect now heading towards a post democratic world and one that is led by those of a common purpose here and within the EU. 

Not so some might say, in which case why have we not already left the EU despite that vote to do so - and even if Boris now that he has a clear run gets the top job.

The bed seems a bit over crowded for this.

Ten in the Bed
There were ten in the bed
And the little one said,
"Roll over! Roll over!"
So they all rolled over
And one fell out

There were nine in the bed
And the little one said,
"Roll over! Roll over!"
So they all rolled over
And one fell out

There were eight....
There was one in the bed
And the little one said,
"Good night!"
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Theresa May - Who Will Succeed Her? - Formerly 'Theresa May'

Is Gove now out of the race to replace?

Reading this morning that he's admitted to snorting cocaine some twenty years ago - and from Pat Condell on Twitter, no wonder he gets up everybody's nose. Grin

There again Johnson has already admitted doing the same, Stewart puffed opium, Hunt on cannabis... and May admitted to running through a field of wheat!

Funny As for Gove admission he "deeply regrets" taking cocaine more than 20 years ago.

I have no doubt he does - have you noticed, they always have regrets when their future pathway is threatened.. As to whether it will count against him,who knows. Time will tell. After all, its the politicians who make the laws. It seems like one law for them, another for the rest of us.

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Re: Theresa May - Who Will Succeed Her? - Formerly 'Theresa May'

As Mandy Rice-Davies famously said all those years ago "Well he would, wouldn't he".

Personally I think he should just own it with a "whatever" and just move on as really, who is that bothered about such things now. As a youngster back in the day I rolled more than a few joints but so what, I then grew up and like toys as a child put such things away and came to realise there were more important things in life than getting stoned. 

Has anybody 'not been there'?

Regressive regret serves little purpose and we need to take as we find not as we once were - which admittedly, is not much in his case. Wink

Re: Theresa May - Who Will Succeed Her? - Formerly 'Theresa May'

Does Gove not realise that admitting taking a class A drug is 7 years prison ? Cannabis is class B so only 5 years. Is there a statute of limitation on drug use ? 

Is he hoping it will improve his street cred - he is seen as a bit of an unstable egghead nerd.  You never really know why politicians say things,  all we know is that if their lips are moving they are telling lies. Seems to think that admitting you did it is better than it being found out and splashed all over the front pages.

Re: Theresa May - Who Will Succeed Her? - Formerly 'Theresa May'

Much as I dislike Gove, I'll give him a bit of credit for forward thinking - if he hadn't 'admitted' a 20-year old misdemeanour, do you not think his opponents would not have unearthed it at 'just the right moment' and used it against him? Politics these days is more like the bear pits of Ancient Rome.

@wotsup 

"Does Gove not realise that admitting taking a class A drug is 7 years prison ? Cannabis is class B so only 5 years. Is there a statute of limitation on drug use ?"

Interesting point - can you be prosecuted for taking drugs in the past though. The law is in a mess on such things and I doubt very much they would even prosecute let alone get a conviction. 

Is there a policeman (ex or otherwise) 'in the house' here that can give us the answer? Roll_eyes
