    Not a chance. Very clear that David Davies is planning a coup.

    I expected a challenge in the summer. If nothing happens over the next few weeks then I expect she will be Prime Minister until next spring at the earliest. The fact May has lasted so long following her disastrous election campaign surprises me.

    Not much incentive for anyone to take over this early into the Parliament and Brexit, is there? I think everyone's quite happy for her to be strapped to the front of the tank taking all the incoming fire for the time being.

    Only someone with an ego as monstrous as Boris would see the PM position as anything other than a poisoned chalice for a while yet.

    Well, a lot of it is her fault.

    The problem is that we can't have a functioning Government with her as PM and with the Tories running a quasi-coalition with creationist lunatics. But Tories gonna Tory. Power for power's sake, forget the fact that it's killing the country month on month.

    Fair play to Manchester. Police say 30,000 people turned up to protest at the tory conference. That's fairly significant imo.

    Sadly, looks like universal credit will be going ahead regardless.

    The splits within the party are becoming more apparent the more they try to suggest they're united though. Can't see things getting better soon.

    I also think this. I don't see how it's possible to make a success of Brexit regardless of whether it's a good idea or not, the amount of legislation that needs to be setup is huge. Plus, the actual negotiation of trade deals etc. To do all that in 2 years is a huge ask, especially when you consider it took 17 days to get the DUP deal through.

    There's going to be lots of tea required over the next decade to sort this all out

    Appears to be turning into Felix Magath.

    Those who have seen Mrs May privately in recent weeks describe her as stricken and stunned. On one occasion she sat in silence for almost ten minutes while the visitor she had invited to see her waited for her to lead the conversation.

    She probably ran out of charge.

    Despite the poll result on here, Mrs. May is still Prime Minister. And despite all the setbacks she will possibly still be in charge this time next year.

    The alternative of a Momentum led Labour government just does not bear thinking about.

    It's hard to think how it could be worse.

    Having to effectively sack three senior Cabinet ministers in around six months is shambolic, let alone before we go into the myriad dire economic policies that the Tories have been failing with for seven and a half years. Also we are - solely thanks to the previous Tory PM - now in the most important, volatile political phase this country has faced since the war and that department is being led by someone who quite clearly bluffs his way through it. Who behaves like a 12 year old kid who lies about doing his homework then does an appalling, amateurish cover-up job when he's asked to show what he's done. Meantime the Government can be made to dance to the tune of a bunch of climate changing, creationist Northern Irish MPs who don't believe that dinosaurs existed.

    We have a Government who don't do anything. They won't fix the errors made by the previous leadership and have no ideas of their own.

    Don't even go there Alan. Ministers are openly trying to divert foreign aid to causes that suit their own agendas. A now sacked former international development minister argued that foreign aid should go to countries willing to do trade deals post Brexit. Another wants to divert funds to tackle plastic pollution, whilst others argue that it should go to British controlled tax havens to tackle storm damage.

    Guess it's lucky then that it didn't come from a direct representative of May?

    I was just pointing out that it can, unfortunately and somewhat hysterically, get worse.

    Reducing the foreign aid budget is inevitable. It's already seen as money we could be spending on "our own" by the right wing press, who go to town whenever a story breaks of money ultimately appearing to go to a perceived dubious cause, the undercurrent to which is deeply unpleasant and in a post Brexit vote world less and less hidden. The usual rhetoric is something along the lines of 'why are we giving money to India, when they are a nuclear nation and have more billionaires than the UK does, they can look after their own people it's not our problem they choose not to?' or ' X country has a tyrant in charge, why are we giving money to someone who murders his own people'?Typical examples here:
    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.e...rk-Sedwill/amp
    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.tel...g-workers/amp/


    Once the realities of Brexit hit home, we will have to spend less on foreign aid as a total figure as we'll have less money, but I'm sure that will also be the case as a percentage and justified as necessary vs, the NHS, education, social services etc alternatives.

    This is nothing new, pretending it is because it's a Tory government is disingenuous. Blair and Brown were well known for it.

    I was just answering Alan's point about foreign aid and what current ministers here are trying to do with our own budget. I'll even go as far as applauding David Cameron for being the first UK leader to take the UK contribution to the UN target of 0.7% of GDP .

    Government Ministers of any particular persuasion will defend their own departments and try all that they can to fund that department as well as they can.

    In her own warped terms, she's playing a bit of a blinder. I still think she'll go on until the next election, which won't come early. Both her own party and the opposition can't quite see the benefits of removing her and she'll cling to power for as robotically possible.
    And, bizarrely, I think a lot of non-political people think she is doing a good job as a plucky woman fighting against the evil EU, the toffs in her own party and the creepy scarecrow man.
