here, about half way down, Brexit does not mean leaving the single market is said explicit by Gove, Johnson and Hannan and even Aaron Banks and Farage talk about the "Norway option" in the campaign.


The argument is that May then called a GE with a manifesto containing a different version of Brexit. The result of that GE provided a mandate - albeit a weak one - for the that different version of Brexit.


How close does the manifesto come to the withdrawal agreement?

are you seriously objecting to "ding dong the witch is gone"?

It's the word "dong" isn't it, because it could mean penis?

I can understand where May was coming from, she seemed to see herself as a kind of unifying leader in the middle of two extremes but it's been clear for a while she was unwilling or incapable of building a majority around any kind of way forward and she's really just been slowing down progress. Of course depending on our destination we may end up wishing progress had been slowed even more but she's overstayed her welcome and I doubt many from any political perspective will think she should stay.

Hard to really feel much about her going as there is so little certainty as to where we go now.

Yes, there's no question you knew where you stood when May was at the helm.

Play time for all...

Dear redacted

Please see below a statement from the Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP, Chairman of the Conservative Party, and Dame Cheryl Gillan MP and Charles Walker OBE MP, Vice-Chairmen of the 1922 Committee:

“This morning the Prime Minister announced her intention to resign as Leader of the Conservative & Unionist Party on Friday 7 June. We are saddened by her decision but understand it, and thank her for her years of service to our Party and our nation, not just as Prime Minister but over many decades before that. As an activist, a councillor, a devoted constituency MP, a loyal member of the Shadow Cabinet in our long years of opposition, our first female Party Chairman, as a bold and reforming Home Secretary, and throughout her time as our nation’s second female Prime Minister, she has shown great dedication, courage and tenacity. She embodies the finest qualities of public service and, with this decision, has once again demonstrated her strong sense of duty and devotion to the national interest.

After the Prime Minister has resigned as Leader of the Conservative Party, we will begin the process to elect a new Leader. The timetable for this is set by the Executive of the 1922 Committee after consultation with the Party Board, which includes representatives of the voluntary, Parliamentary and professional party. We intend that the Parliamentary stages of the contest – which involves determining the final choice of candidates to put before all members of the party – should begin with the close of nominations in the week commencing 10 June.

Successive rounds of voting will take place until a final choice of candidates to put to a vote of all party members is determined. We expect that process to be concluded by the end of June, allowing for a series of hustings around the UK for members to meet and question the candidates, then cast their votes in time for the result to be announced before Parliament rises for the summer.

We are deeply conscious that the Conservatives are not just selecting the person best placed to become the new leader of our party, but also the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. That is a solemn responsibility, particularly at such an important time for our nation. We will therefore propose that the leadership election and hustings involve opportunities for non-members and people who may not yet vote Conservative to meet the candidates and put their questions to them too.

None of us will be candidates in the leadership election, nor will we support any candidate. Our focus will be on facilitating a full, fair and frank debate and contest. We have discussed this proposal with the Chairman of the Conservative National Convention, who is also content with it.”

Just teasing. Dunno about mamil's political views, but the 'witch' bit doesn't really have anything to do with May's politics. I think she was pretty terrible as a PM, but at least she gave a sh*t. The last PM to resign trotted back into no. 10, doo-de-dooing as though he had just put the recycling out rather than plunging the country into 3 years of ever increasingly bitter division.

Digital Minister, Margot James is on to you, Looney.

Effectively, the prime minister is going to be chosen by roughly 100,000 people, assuming we go that far into the contest, who don’t ... some would argue they don’t really represent the majority of Conservative voters, let alone the country as a whole.
