If only there was a democratic process last week that could have changed who is in power and demonstrated what popular opinion is on the subject matter.

Larry? I mean protesting against the leader of the largest party shortly after an election seems like wasting everyones time and police resources.

I don't think you understand how people vote. the idea people vote for their local MP is bullshit, they vote for the party and the leader. The votes may go to the MP but that is not the intent of the voter. That is why more people can tell you who the leader is for the parties then any of their local MPs/Candidates.

Take this sarcasm to its logical extreme and have a word with yourself. Honestly m8, everyone is just going to think you're a dickhead and you will make the world a little bit of a worse place without achieving anything constructive.

Now I get that you're on the fast-track to joining the SWP but surely if you think about it there are better ways to help the disabled or the gays than vaguely protesting against a democratically elected leader. What are you actually doing?

Nobody's doing any such thing. If anything they're protesting a leader who specifically was not democratically elected. She inherited the position by default without ever facing a vote, and then narrowly failed to win the election she called to give herself a mandate.

She won the election though. She did it using the rules we set and more people voted for her than anyone else.

Ergo democratically elected.

No, "using the rules we set" she was five seats short of winning and as a result we have a hung parliament. You don't win a parliamentary election in this country by getting one seat more than the next guy. You need one seat more than everyone else that gets a vote put together.

Is she even technically the PM yet? She hasn't formed a proper government, has she? The whole thing seems so informal I can't really keep track. I've also had real life things to do so I haven't paid attention for going on a week now.

It's not the head of government that becomes the PM, it's the PM that forms the government. The role of PM is a bit like the Ryder Cup where if there's a tie the holders get to retain it. May is PM, and will stay PM until she either resigns or is forced out. The fun part is that if any amendments to the Queen's Speech are carried, the government has to resign and the precedent is that Corbyn would become PM. Hence why the current Speech has been postponed and next year's Speech already cancelled.

It doesn't contradict the GE results. If you think about it very hard you might understand that time has passed since the election, and in any case elections in parliamentary systems aren't referendums on the personal popularity of the leaders of parties.

I see, and did your poll take into account the 'shy tory' effect? Where was it taken, how did they account for regional bias? how large was the sample size? were all those questioned elligiable to vote. What else was asked that may have lead participants? No I think I'll stick with large sample reading from the week before that was used to pick our government as being more accurate thanks.

If the ballot paper didn't have the parties written on them do you think people would really have any idea of who they were voting for? A vote for a MP is as good as a vote for a leader in how people treat these things.

So you haven't noticed how people talk about Corbyn constantly, or voting for Corbyn, even though they probably don't live in North Islington? And therefore he presumably had no relivance to how people voted in the general election outside of that area.

Yes I have. I've also noticed how other people talk about how they hate Corbyn but vote for the Labour candidate anyway because they like their MP or hate the Tories even more.

Party leaders certainly have relevance to national voter trends. That doesn't translate to "a vote for an MP is as good as a vote for a leader", though, that's total bollocks. To get a sense of how favourable people's opinions of party leaders are you have to, you know, actually ask them a question about it.

He reaction to Grenfell has really seen her take a battering.
Go down and talk to the firemen but avoid the people because they might be ruffians. Jez goes right down and hugs people. He walks among the people like he has his entire life.

Theresa is essentially shamed into meeting a select few at downing street on her own terms a couple of days later.
