    There isn't a single piece of polling though that suggests a better outcome without her is there?

A Border in the Irish Sea could generate an economic boom for NI, but no they won't have it. A crash out could lead to a reunification Poll in a couple of years. But the DUP don't think like that.

    Just tell them No. That bit they do understand, though they will pretend not to. But this would take a concerted bloody plan by the British govt to get on without them.
    I would suggest that it would cover both a no deal, and a failed attempt to get a deal. They want a deal and badly so.

    No stand out candidate and the sensible ones are keeping their powder dry until after 29thy of March next year or until Brexit is sort of sorted .

    A hell of a big risk for the Dup to cause a General Election . Interesting times .

    So no, there's nothing that suggests that she's anything other than the Tories biggest electoral asset is there? She consistently beats Corbyn on pretty much every category that's tested by every polling company. The same polls that show Corbyn beating/drawing with Johnson.

    There's risk in everything. An election looms and she's still the best bet for them. And ultimately is comfortably the most popular person for leader within her own party.

    "If anyone has listened to Barnier in his partisan visits, it's clear he doesn't have NI's industries at heart". Love you Sammy. So much.

    Sammy outright says he's been chatting with Tory MPs who have told him to hold the line and beat down May.

    I like elections but she should have won the last one and didn’t . Tories like winning elections and do not get caught up in ideology or otherwise . A situation that the Left often seems to allow to happen .

    Theresa May lacks some sort of common touch and for a Politician she is not a great liar which sadly is a drawback for politicians .

    Yes he is stupid enough to say that.

    Tough call these days to find a truthful quote from any politicians these days.
