There's no chance May will resign. She doesn't care about the good of the country, or even the best for her party, she's solely interested in her own ego and the boost that the title of Prime Minister affords it. She's proved that time and time again. She'd need to be ousted.

She must be dreadful, because this time 12, even 6months ago, Cornyn was unelectable and a general laughing stock. Even amongst Labour supporters.

Can anyone find the Anna Soubry interview suggesting that May should go.

Now here is a woman I could follow.

Telling us what she really thinks and not worried about the Party consequences.

I met her about a year ago as part of a group to discuss a work related issue and I was really impressed with her.

Not a woman you'd like to get in to an argument with. Unless you like losing arguments of course.

Um.. What happens with these Brexit negotiations in 11 days then? May is fully prepared and the only person able to get the right deal isn't she? Hopefully she won't be too distracted by her abject failure and be able to appear strong and stable when dealing with the eurocrats.

Or does it now somehow get delayed?

The EU did suggest there was some wriggle room beyond 11 days, I mean it is going to take a few days to sort this crap out.

Salmond, Robertson, Clegg - 3 very vocal remainers - out

Farron , majority slashed

SNP - boohoo, weep weep, we want to be wee Europeans, lose a 1/3rd of their seats

What possible construct can people put on this result that it was some kind of revolt of the remainers - fake news izzit

It trivialises the fact that a socialist party just polled 41% - pretty incred

McDonnell and Corbyn are now going on about forming a minority government without any coalitions - how is this possible? By what metric can they argue this when they have lower popular vote and decidely less seats?

The Queen has the power to say yes or no.  I am sure she'll get (legal advice) before agreeing.  I am pretty sure she'll be advised to listen to Theresa May's proposals for forming a government first.

Yeah I vaguely remember her having that power now you mention it from the last coalition. Quite worrying actually that a monarch has that power.

The largest party will be asked to form a government unless there's clear evidence that they won't be able to govern; so don't think it's relevant what Labour say. Even if DUP didn't agree to support them I'd assume the Conservatives would give it a go.


EDIT: I notice they were just replying to questions from journalists; basically journalists creating a non-story then - asking if they'd do something they won't have the opportunity to do.

Yeah, dead in the water for the foreseeable future, Yes vote would obviously lose so why go for it.

SLAB won 7 seats despite Kezia Dugdale, Corbyn should bin her, she gave him no support whatsoever and is generally woeful.

Betfred have year of next general election 2017 at 11/10.

Doesn't an autumn general election look a strong possibility?

I thought it would be odds on.

EDIT Hills have 2017 general election at 4/7, so 11/10 looks a big price to me.

I doubt they'll lay it for proper money. If it's still there at lunchtime, I'll have a go at finding out.
