Will May Unite The Country Or Be A Flop? Your Predictions

Recommended Posts

The country in under a decade has it's second unelected leader, stepping into a huge political mess where she's unlikely to please everyone. Leaving the EU itself is likely to end in a solution which satisfies no one unless the EU project collapses, if it manages to lumber on any exit is likely to be partial with many of the leave demands left unmet. Cameron has successfully divided the country and left his successor with a mess that's likely to prove impossible to fix.

So a thread to bump in a few years time to find out who got lucky and perhaps predicted the future.

What will May achieve in being Britain's 2nd female PM and will she call an early election unlike the bottler Brown?

Not my dream choice but I think she's a steady worker and a safe pair of hands to deal with the complexities of Brexit.

A John Major type if you will; probably what we need.

I don't expect a GE for at least three years as we don't need any more disruption.

All prime ministers are unelected. The majority party gets to choose. We don't do it like presidents. She's probably a safe bet if she promises not to put a web cam in my bathroom, and have GCHQ tracking my every move.

Something I hope too, the last thing we need are your bathroom antics being broadcast on the web!!!!

She's a vast improvement on Cameron, IMO. She kept her powder dry - well perhaps damp - on the Stay/Leave issue, and has been quietly and mostly uncontroversially worked at the Home office for 6 years. Safe pair of hands. Nothing spectacular. She'll get it done. :ph34r:

Let's see who she assigns to lead the BREXIT negotiations.

I think, if she is clever, she will assign several of the LEAVE team. If she is really clever she should assign Farage as well. Then bring in people like Digby Jones, that Chamber of Commerce guy, etc.

Cameron was so cheesed off in his press conference today - his language, and his body language, said it all. Poor sod - he was expecting to be PM for the rest of the summer at least.

Too late, nice nautical theme by the way.

She is more of the same globalist filth. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Didn't she have a spectacular bust up with Michael Gove a couple of years back? Surely he's got to be a shoe in for that job.

The big problem I see for May is that she turns 60 at the start of October, which would make her 63 1/2 by the time of the next election, is she really going to be able to continue in office until she's 68, particularly since she is not in the best of health (diabetic)? If not how does she fight the 2020 election?

I come from the angle that our representatives should all be in their seventies before going to Parliament, having led full, varied lives first.

Less energy, less thrusting, warmongering and changing the world. A telescopic view of life with a natural affinity for the well being of future generations. Peace and quiet valued.

Chamberlain?

I loath these PPE kids, who've been researchers and then parachute into a safe seat, then junior minister, then senior minister, then running the country by 45 - bollecks - make some screw ups in your own life, and recover from them, learn from them

kids these days!

having said all that I do like Rory Stewart, but he really has been there and got the t-shirt

When i lived in Japan, one of the funniest observations of their culture was that it took 40 years to approve the pill for japanese women and 6 months to approve Viagra for men. Shows who was making the laws...

The best I am hoping for is a safe pair of hands. Really annoying that Give wasn't allowed to contest the election though. Her coronation real smacked of a parliamentary convertible part coup. Like the Labour party they could real playing with fire.

I don't share the optimism of this thread. I think she's a turncoat and a cunning old hag with the backing of the establishment who wont question her anywhere near enough.

The fact the vast majority of our free press is up her backside worries me deeply.

She's shown how useless she is with her multitude of failures in her department.

She's not interested in brexit despite her hollow assurances which is why she secured backing of so many remain MPs.

She's shown a complete disregard for civil liberties and doesn't understand how the Internet works.

Apart from Osborne I can't think of anyone worse from her party.

Honest question

Do you judge her by a house price crash

Or by her actions as a home Secretary in the traditional sense?

It won't happen as the Tories will want to control it all. Politically, she could do a lot to bring ex Tory UKIP voters back to her by bringing in Farage. It would be a very shrewd move bringing him in.

I think also involving people lime Kate Hoey from Labour and the Labour lady with the German name - never can remember her name.

The country needs to be united now and that means some kind of consensus group going toward. It will take a real leader to do this though. Time will tell.

Gisela Stewart, I used to know a Gisela so I remember the name.

Frank Field and David Davies would be great appointments.

Yep, that is her.

I am not sure whether FF has the business background or whether he would be interested. He looks unwell or just needs some sunshine.

I would have thought that her first job would be to get rid of the Goebbels or the Remain campaign aka George Osbourne. He's spent the last 10 weeks talking the British economy down, and should be sent to the back benches on Thursday morning.

I don't know enough about the Conservatives to be able to offer the name of a good replacement, but there must be one. Osbourne can't stay.

There is no way she will get rid of Osborne. He's a power broker behind the scenes like Mandy was for Labour.

Johnny I judge her for the reasons I set out above, the main problem is she's going to be representative of 48% of this country rather than 52%.

I am happy for her to have a go and do her very best. That is all we can ask of anyone.

I believe she believes what she says about brexit meaning brexit, but brexit can be a million things. The best thing to happen would be the dissolution of the EU before she invokes us leaving but I don't think time is on her side.

Someone on here said we should go to industry in Germany and talk to them and get them to pressure their leaders into making the deal that business needs.

She's been right not to promise to let all EU citizens here stay - and whilst I have an angry german bouncing about that on FB I understand fully why she's said that - you don't give away all your sweets before trying to swap them.

That would please all those bitching young twats who think old people shouldn't be allowed to vote so that they don't have to either and yet still get the result they want in referendums.
