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

Bearing in mind that the members are only balloted on the two candidates remaining that have been chosen in this case by Conservative MP's only. It's an odd sort of democracy especially under present circumstances where the future leader of the country is chosen by an even smaller number than those that voted in that referendum and for 'the cause that dare not speak it's name'. Well not around here anyway.

But there you go, the new wheel has not only not been chosen, it's not even been put on the wagon yet here we have Labour already trying to poke a stick in it! Theresa May might not have been driving this through as hard as she should have done but this lot are no help, in fact they are a flaming hinderance. 

Apart from the obvious, want to know who to blame for the mud we've been stuck in for the last three years?

"Labour will try to force a vote of no confidence in the next prime minister as soon as they take office, John McDonnell said, as Conservative candidates throw their hats into the ring to succeed Theresa May"

The McDonnell and Cable double act, retired and sat on park bench somewhere. I can just see it, like a scene in a now renamed 'Last of the Summer Whiners'. Thumbs_Up

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

IVERY rarely get involved in discussions on politics (or religion) because of the arguments/hassle it causes, but I will say this:- I can't see anyone in the HoC I would trust to run the country at the moment. To a man, or woman, they all seem to be in it for their own personal 'power' reasons, NOT to serve the country.

I also admit to not following the subject as I used to, but that is because I've better things to do than listen to children squabbling.

Well they do say @jab1 that if you have nothing to say then say nothing - a bit like myself and tennis really!

.... oh, and football and cricket. Not a clue. Crazy2

A bit rich coming from you! Maybe try to follow your own advice once in a while, and give us all a break.

@DaveyH 

When did I have "nothing say", did you not read my previous posts.

Maybe something from you on the subject in hand rather than just being your usual rude self?

From your posts you seem pretty sharp on matters technical so why not stick to those, instead of trying to bring others down to your level of spite here.

Admittedly, you post plenty of words across the forum....

It's a Hobson's choice afaiac.

 

So you telling someone to say nothing is fine, but pointing out your hypocrisy is rudeness.

 

And as I've pointed out many times, I'll treat people as I find them!

Who made you moderator?!

I'll post in whatever section/thread I chose to.

@Anonymous  sorry didn't mean to imply you said anything about Boris. I was just thinking out aloud.

So a response to that, instead of your rather obtuse comment, would have been a little more appropriate?

(Not trying to put you down, or be funny, btw)

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

Whilst we may have a poor bunch hoping to be the next PM, things could be worse, we are getting a visit from a president of one of the most powerful countries in the world.....imagine if we had him as PM ?

Compared to him some, perhaps all ? of our candidates look good.

Likely boris will get the job, not because he would be any good but simply because he has the type of personality that attracts a lot of people, women in particular Smiley

Many are so fed up with politics that to have someone clowning around and making daft statements makes a change from the usual approach made by politicians.

As for Corbyn calling for a general election he is simply confirming what a fool he is, sure an election would see a loss of tory seats but equally there would be a loss of Labour seats and the chances of him joining other fringe groups in the hope of getting a majority to implement his policies....no chance.

@gleneagles You make a good point about Mr. Trump, although I doubt (hope?) such an ignorant individual as that would  get elected here in the U.K - but who knows?Undecided

As to the rest of your post - unless I am sadly mistaken, and maybe I am, the government - of whatever colour - is supposed to take an oath to serve the Sovereign and country to the best of their ability?

@jab1 

Perhaps it would be a good idea if the Sovereigh used that sword for it's intended purpose on those who failed to do their best for queen & country....

Might shape their ideas up a bit
