Only days ago, we were discussing the sheer optimism of Theresa May’s plan to remain as (nominal) prime minister until September 2019 – now she has backtracked on this story, saying she’ll lead the Tories into the next general election.

Here she is, reciting her interview answer as though she was taught it by rote:

May-be she thinks that election won’t be until 2022.

If so, she has clearly crossed the line into lunacy. Look for her in your nearest wheat field soon. Check out the crazed look in her eyes during that clip.

May-be she has alternative information, showing that an election could happen much sooner. Autumn, perhaps?

If so, it is perfectly likely that she believes she’ll lead the Tories into the next election and on until September 2019.

If so, she has clearly crossed the line into lunacy and you should look for her in your nearest wheat field soon.

Theresa May has said she wants to lead the Conservatives into the next general election, telling the BBC she intends to remain in power “for the long term”.

Speaking in Japan, the PM said her job was not just to deliver Brexit but to define the UK’s place in the world and also to tackle domestic “injustices”.

Some reports have suggested she could stand down in 2019 after EU withdrawal.
