    She would, until the successor is named.
    The leadership campaign has not formally started yet.
    Why can she not have her resignation take effect NOW, and then stay on as PM until a successor is named? Why delay it for nearly two weeks?

    And besides, at one time we used to have a 'Deputy Prime Minister'. Major had one. Blair had one. Brown had one. Cameron had one. Why not May?
    Being PM is a risky enough job at the moment. One would have to be clinically insane to want to be May's deputy prime minister.

    Perrin is right about Cameron, on everything else he is wrong.

    Because it is utterly meaningless. You're supposed to think it's some kind of VP type job, but there is no constitutional provision for the PM's best friend to take over if the leader is shot or whatever. Since Theresa May has no friends, she has no phony deputy. The DPM often stands in for the PM in parliament when the PM is playing golf rather than answering stupid questions on slow days, but no special authority comes with that title. The term was coined sarcastically and politicians being the deluded fuckwits they are thought Oooh that sounds jolly important, we like important, hip hip hooray.
    YOU LOST. AGAIN.

    The trouble with the gift of prophecy is people seldom listen anyway:


    Three years ago...

    May is not stupid, and she would not set HERSELF up to fail like that.
    That assumes she intends to do a good job on Brexit. She doesn't. She will do whatever it takes to make Leaving unacceptable

    But of course, it wasn't really prophecy, it was just the ability to see something else people don't take any notice of... the completely bleedin obvious.
    YOU LOST. AGAIN.

    No doubt Rightards will be all up for Boris Johnson, dismissing his conspiracy to violence as "Banta"..

    Was he charged with, or convicted of conspiracy?



    How would you feel about an anti-Semitic, terrorist sympathiser becoming PM?

    I'd feel very reluctant to support someone like that. I suggest you ask your mate Bob for an essay on how Corbyn's been portrayed that way by the "dark forces" of right wing media and other interested parties. I'd also suggest you try to apply a bit of 5th form critical thinking, I think you might just about be capable. As for Johnson not being charged etc....is that your criteria? Are you deaf? Are you so simple minded that despite hearing what he said, and having actually admitted it was true, you're prepared to say "Ah well, that's ok if he wasn't charged"....is that how low Rightard standards are?

    Really?? There's a recording right there, what difference does it make if he was charged or not?

    It's evident, you are missing the upright and honest Tony Blair.
