    But having previously ruled out any role for the devolved assemblies in the negotiations she will look even weaker than she is.

    I was just saying in twitter last night that this scenario with the DUP is like a time when you're the only in the group advising everyon else that so and so was a complete cvnt and a loon.

    And they were like no way they're sound if a little bit old fashioned slightly too religious and a tad eccentric.

    And you're like no, no so and so is a complete psycho.

    Now the pshyco has thrown their laptop out the window and is in the process of setting fire to their desk after trying to strangle their supervisor.

    And I'm like, told you so.

    If it was not so serious we could laugh.

    Ah yeah - they may be a rabid bunch of creationists who think the Pope is the antichrist and possessing no experience in negotiating trade agreements on any scale, but they'll clearly improve proceedings (at least from an entertainment point of view).

    I'm not sure she can go much lower really. The next step down is asking Jeremy to offer her suggestions for next steps.

    You would have to wonder how democratic all this is at this point, the Tories themselves are split on Brexit and on the type of Brexit to go for, they are a minority govt being pushed about by a tiny few with the DUP (who are by no means truly representative of all their voters).Only about 30% of Brits voted for Brexit and a fair number were lied to shamelessly about what it would actually mean.
    This is the worst shambles in modern democratic politics that I can think of. I know that the nuts won't like it but I really do think that the Brits should re-run the referendum with all the facts laid out honestly this time. They need a referendum commission to ensure fair data from both sides too.

    This Brit "musical chairs" would be funny if it were not such a serious matter.
