    I already said that. Except for the bit about the muppets.


    She got to be PM and in a while she'll get kicked upstairs as Baroness whatever. Worse things happen at sea.

    Great minds thinking alike, or fools seldom differing?

    Boris clear favourite. Think I'd take him over Gove or Hunt. To be fair, the Conservatives could make Bungle from Rainbow their leader and I still wouldn't vote for Corbyn...

    And yes, the vanity election of 2016 was probably May's undoing.

    She's not leaving much of a legacy. Her whole time totally was overshadowed by Brexit and she accomplished nothing except to lose her majority. Compared to Thatcher that's just a blip in history. She'll be the obscure answer to a question on University Challenge in 2092. Or maybe on Eggheads. That's probably rankling with her a bit I suspect.

    I wouldn't vote for any of the self-serving, waste-of-space fuckers. There's only one girl for me, but unfortunately I no longer live in Scotland:



    So during general elections, my 'protest' vote goes to her compatriot Leanne Wood.

    She wasn't a Catholic ... she only became a Catholic because she wouldn't accept women priests! That's just how 21C she is ...

    Every time I see Gove, I think of Heinrich Himmler.

    You actually could vote for neither of them.
