Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers
Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.
She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.
It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.
This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

It could be worse:
>“When it comes to trade - the positions are very clear. The President of the United States thinks that the U.S. has been treated in an unfair way by Europe and by others, and the others think that this is not the case,” Juncker told a news conference.
>“We will explain this through facts and figures, that this is not the right view one should have on this topic,” Juncker said before the start of a summit of leaders of the United States, Canada, Japan, Britain, Germany, France and Italy.
It just shows how utterly out of touch and blinkered the leadership of the EU has become.
Trump has made a massive performance out of saying essentially "It's great for us to put tariffs on anyone we want, but anyone who puts tariffs on is is rude and stupid." and yet Junker honestly believes that "facts and figures" are going to change his mind?
It's the archetypal story about the nerdy kid who gets beat up by a bully, then decides to explain to the bully why he's better than him. Well the nerdy kid grew up to be a tyrant heading towards being in charge of an entire continent, but never learnt why he was always getting punched in the face.

You're suggesting that they should play Trump's game. The trouble with that is, like any good idiot, he'll bring them down to his level and beat them with experience. There's not much they can do about the fundamental reality that the general public at large are stupid.
|>>|| No. 84331
The good thing about US presidents, though, is that we can rely on a new one with totally opposing values coming into power in another four to eight years. Anyone buckling to Trump's madness is only going to weaken their hand when it comes to bargaining with whichever poor bastard is tasked with trying desperately to fix the mess he's caused.

Off on a tangent, surely Sajid Javid is the clear favourite for next Rory leader now. Mogg is too far right and easily ridiculed. Boris has burnt all his bridges. Hunt, Grayling, Fox et all are all tainted by their briefs. The only problem with Javid is he the usual isn't shade of grey the tories like.
|>>|| No. 84333
>>84332 Forgot to add, Gove has shown huge talent in all his roles since he left education, but no one will notice because he's Michael Gove.
|>>|| No. 84334
It will be Boris.
He's only burnt bridges that don't matter, his bluster is just a show, and I'm sure he's pulling more strings right now than anyone else in the party.
|>>|| No. 84336
Javid will have huge support behind him as the Tories will consider it a big PR coup to have had the first BME Prime Minister.
British South Asians are foreigners the right-wing don't mind. They are exactly the sort of hard-working self-made men who don't rock the established social order that they like to sing the praises of.

I can't see the term "BME" without thinking about that old blog that was full of mutilated genitals.
|>>|| No. 84338
Indians in particular are Tory as fuck. You always see rich Asian blokes wearing over the top gold watches and chains and such, nice tailored suits, driving a big Bentley or Rolls... The traditional image of wealth, because they're the most successful discount carpet supplier in West Yorkshire and want everyone to know it.
|>>|| No. 84339
>>84334 The problem with Boris is that he's not only burnt his bridges, he's also exposed himself as incompetent. The carefully managed image of a genius pretending to be a bumbling fool has shattered and people can now see that he genuinely is a bumbling fool.

I think Mogg will be seen as the pariah the Tories need to push their dream Brexit over the precipice. Easily ridiculed and exposed more than once as being a proper Fagin type but he understands international finance and commerce and has shown time and time again that he's bigger than the backlash he gets for his far-right espousal.
August 2019 is being very generous. I see May being ousted before Christmas with the current loss of Davis and Johnson.
|>>|| No. 84341
Is Johnson dead? Is this death of Stalin situation? No one wants to wake him, not out of fear, just to avoid him opening his gob so no one's actually checked on him?

It's such a fantastic front page.
Johnson Out had me this morning I must admit.

Jacob Rees-Mogg and his family have been ambushed by protesters outside his home in Westminster.
Footage posted on Tuesday by Class War, an organisation claiming to be a “working class action group”, showed police standing guard as a small group of demonstrators confronted the Conservative MP, his wife, four of his six children, and their nanny.
“Your dad won’t answer the question,” one man tells two of Mr Rees-Mogg’s children, after the Brexiteer refused to reveal how much their nanny was paid. “You’re daddy’s a totally horrible person, lots of people don’t like your daddy, do you know that? He’s probably not told you about that. Lots of people hate him.”

>"It was a few anarchists who turned up and it wasn't very well organised. It wasn't terribly serious. We are a free country. They weren't violent. They aren't admirers of mine. I am in public life and not everybody is going to like me. That is a reality of public life. I'd have preferred it if it hadn't happened but I don't want to get it out of perspective. I think much worse things happen to many other people."
At least he isn't even trying to play the victim card like most people would do if they'd had a mob camp outside their house and directly address their children like that. I don't find myself agreeing with him a lot but he's a class act, something that is perhaps easier to become when you're the sort of person who grew up with a nanny.

I fucking hate the guy on a politcal level, but if more people in politics had his spine to be honest about their beliefs it would be much easier to know who to ignore and who to believe.

Idk. It's easy enough to so that it's not on to harass the children of a member of government, but it's not like the government isn't above harassing the children of people it finds inconvenient. I mean, if someone engages in illegal anti-government activity, they'll be kidnapped and imprisoned, and their children will be made damn sure aware then that the government don't think their parent is a very nice person. Given that this does seem to act as a good deterrent, maybe heckling children is a good way of stopping MPs from being shits.
|>>|| No. 84452
What forms of illegal anti-government activity would you like to see legalised?
|>>|| No. 84453
Protesting in Parliament Square, publishing confidential information in the public interest, and calling out the Home Secretary's bullshit at their party conference would be a good start.

Or just industrial action in general, supported by simple majority vote, without ridiculous conditions that lead to employers seeking injunctions rather than engaging.

This is a bloody nightmare, we're going to be sunk without a trace by demented Thatcherites and soulless careerists because of trade deals no one even cared about 18, 24 months ago. I'm not a hysterical remainer, but now the Tories are taking the piss.
|>>|| No. 84524
The Tories have been taking the piss for decades. They don't really govern.

Tory cabinet positions are as predictable as bottom half PL manager appointments. Gove's very much the Alan Pardew of the set, in my opinion.
Big Sam for PM until the end of the implemtation period?

One of the protestors outside Parliament shouted "IT'S NOT GOING VERY WELL, IS IT?"
Own up, lads. Which one of you two was it?

Is it me, or do those lads sound like they've been on the cans since breakfast?

It is. They're known as the Super Barclay Brothers. Barclay Barclay and Steve Barclay.

I increasingly think that Jacob Rees-Mogg is a terrible cunt.

I'm glad they've put someone as empathetic and considerate as Amber Rudd in to oversee Universal Credit. Why did she resign in disgrace again?
|>>|| No. 84540
Because her civil servants couldn't give her decent information about the shit that happened on May's watch in the Home Office.

Brexit aside, I've properly got the horn for Penny Mordaunt.
