British democracy by bluelagos 24 May 9:35
If TM announces her departure the next British PM, who will decide what type of Brexit we try for, will be decided by 300 Tory MPs and 120k Tory party members...

Democracy my arse.

No any deal or no deal still has to be agreed by the HoC.

"No deal" doesn't have to be agreed. It'll just happen if nothing else is put in its place.

Depends who's chosen.

Whoever it is will have to work with the same maths that TM has had to. Simply doesn't add up.

I doubt no deal will happen. Only 80 swivel eyed loons in HoC are up for that. The EU doesn’t want it either.

I enjoyed the quoting of Nicholas Winton on compromise not being a dirty word given she's spent three years refusing to compromise on her deal.

As Clarke said this morning - it was always going to be impossible to get the Tories to agree to a plan. The only way May could get her plan through was via cross-party support.

She left that simply too late.

She should have gone cross party from the outset.

Perhaps she said that because it's only in the last few days that she realises that's what she should have done.

You should be concerned.
The Tory MP's could stitch you up and vote for Raab and Hunt as the last 2 to be put before the members. That will cause a split between the members and the MP's as the members seem to want Bojo.

Yes. Instead of a red, white and blue Brexit it will now be a swivel-eyed, loony Brexit.

Although to be fair that's pretty much what we've been seeing over the past three years.

And not only because that was the only way to get it through, but because it was the right thing to do.

It is a decision that will affect everyone of whatever particular persuasion whoever is in government for years to come.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Indeed. Carried away by hubris, she started off on the wrong track and wasted everybody's time with her posturing. Not to mention her criminal inability to deal with reality or the best interests of the country.

Hmmmm. Not so much fun, I don't think.

As they've shown with their decades of EU squabbles and Brexit itself, they'll make sure they take the country down with them. Especially given the state of their leadership candidates.

The only hope is to boot them out and likely get some form of anti-loon coalition going with Labour, SNP, Lib Dems and Greens bringing us back from the precipice.

This is the UK, you elected MP's who form a Government from their number who choose a PM. You do not elect a President, this why you won't get a say on the PM. Tory members didn't even get a vote last time, the decision of Prime Minister is with the MP's (who make up the Governing party) and not the Tory Party membership. If you fail to understand that, you probably shouldn't be voting.
