Two ministers gone this morning and counting..

This is going to get very messy.

I genuinely have no idea what will happen next.

Another referendum perhaps?

Simple choice:

- Bad deal
- No deal
- Remain on current favourable terms

When the door of Number 10 opened last night, I expected May to appear clutching the door frame before staggering out and down the street before collapsing face down with a knife in her back. She did look pretty unhappy, though maybe it was from being confined for 5 hours with her half-witted cabinet.

This whole unholy mess could rumble on for years! Our local (Tory) MP has for some time been advertising a talk he's giving tomorrow entitled "Brexit - all the answers". I hope he's invited Mrs May .

Anyone believe that The Late Theresa May will last into next week?

Theresa will still be there, but it looks like nobody else will be.

She has the most important quality of any politician - resilience. She has already survived drinking from the poisoned chalice whilst others dare not even let it touch their lips. I don't see too many of her critics putting themselves forward for her job!

To the chairman of the 1922 committee expressing no confidence in Theresa May, perhaps, but has he got the bottle to enter himself in the leadership contest?

In reality he's a political under-achiever, perhaps because this is the one area of his life where real success isn't hereditary.

When you say hereditary did you perhaps mean ‘inbred’ ??

Just sayin’. !
