    5 reasons Theresa May will stay — and one she goes



    1. There’s no legitimate excuse to ditch her


    2. No obvious replacement

    3. Not another election!

    4. Jeremy Corbyn

    5. Brexit

    But …

    If May does not have the confidence of the people, then she has to go.
    Reason and logic are all very well, but sometimes the pressure for change is too great to withstand.

    At the moment, May can do no right.

    What would happen to the Tory party if they turned around on brexit ? That in itself would be a disaster for them they could say something like "ah we were only kidding" and no one would mind.
    A possible reasonable way out of it would be to delay the whole process by many years but the consensus seems to be to rush it though meanwhile May can put on a brave face as if everything is Okay. Despite for instance the enormous turn out of young voters in the general election which even a fraction of could have easilyáchangedáthe brexit result if they had come to vote on brexit.
    The only thing they can do is focus on getting a soft brexit that wont hurt the UK economy to hard for instance to remain in the common market at least if not the eu customs which would mean having to tax exports and imports but still qualifying there goods as being eu acceptable. Which wont change the fact of a debt to leave the eu or that they will no longer receive any eu funding. Labour isn't really an alternative on that scince they would carry out brexit themselves anyway.

    I see the Bookies have moved David Davies into favorite or at least joint favorite with Borris for the PM gig once May steps down. Can't see them electing Davies but I see it is scaring some Borris supporters into anonymously spinning against Davies in the UK press.

    The fact that it is likely to be a bitterly contested leadership once she steps down actually should actually keep her in the job longer as I think most of their members have the stomach for such a contest in the short to med term.

    But is it a job worth having right now , you still have all the responsibility but effectively none of the power as you serve at the whim of a few senior cabinet ministers not falling out with you.

    Our priest on Sunday put it very well. "Brexit, the ultimate act in selfishness. After having thrived on the misery of their colonies for years, they want to close the door so as not to share with their victims."

    He was a visiting priest. Who had ministered to the colonies for 50 years. He has seen the coal face of colonialism.


    He was even more explicit about Trump

    The revolution may happen earlier than we think because Tory supporters are dying at a rate of 2% a year:

    ‘One thing which is just worth having in mind: 2 per cent of the older part of the electorate die every year - they are 70 per cent Conservative’
    Former Conservative deputy prime minister Michael Heseltine has warned the electoral base is dying off at a rate of 2 per cent a year and has called for a new party leader.
    Lord Heseltine, who worked with Margaret Thatcher and was deputy to John Major, said the party needs to work hard to “restore its electoral forturnes” and that Theresa May should step down after a “matter of months”.
