Theresa May still won’t say when she’ll go. Her party has blown its chance to get rid of her

On her way: Wouldn’t it be great if Theresa May got in her ministerial car, took a trip to Buckingham Palace, and asked for her disastrous Parliament to be dissolved?

My money says if Theresa May ever resigns of her own free will, it will happen over the summer – certainly by September – to allow a leadership election and coronation at the autumn Tory conference.

She won’t go just because people are saying nasty things about her. We’ve heard that EU figures considered her attitudes stupid when they were in negotiations with her, and her popularity ratings here in the UK are at an all-time low. That won’t make a difference.

The fact is that the Tories had two chances to get rid of this liability – democratically – and they blew it.

If she isn’t fit for power, they certainly aren’t.

MPs talk now about whether to “allow” the prime minister to continue free from challenge during the state visit from President Trump, to spare her the embarrassment of standing alongside the most powerful politician in the Western World while her own party are trying to unseat her.

But days after that comes the Peterborough by-election when Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party might squeeze the Tory vote right to the margins, with the humiliation of another potentially terrible showing there, prompting the party, finally, to act.

Days after that, Tory activists are due to gather, who could call on her to go. They don’t have a way of officially making that happen, but for how long can all these voices be ignored?

Few believe that Theresa May, would, even after three more humiliations like that, willingly leave.

    No, she wont go, why should she? I mean she has been the person behind the low unemployment rate, the huge amounts of money put into the NHS, schools receiving huge amounts of funding, more doctors and nurses working in our hospitals, police forces getting more funding than Labour ever gave them.

    She believes this, this is why everyone who is against her is wrong. The blame for her arrogance is down to the people that are feeding her these lies. I’m surprised they haven’t come out with “Pensioners now receive a much higher pension than they did when Labour was in power”.

    She won’t go until someone has the guts to tell her what she doesn’t want to hear.

    The longer she stays, the better. She is seen as weird, incompetent and extremely nasty. Every day she brings the whole rotten, corrupt lot of them further and further into disrepute.

    I said this on the 16/11/18 on my Facebook Page and nothing has changed…If the day ever arrives when May has to leave Number 10 it will not be with dignity it will be 4 security guards carrying her out scratching, biting and kicking, holding on to bannisters table legs and the front door knob as she is dragged outside. Inside Number 10 there will be staff injured, furniture over turned and the PM will be screaming Strong and Stable, Strong and Stable as she is carried away and the front door slams shut behind her.
