        Iím labour, but not a Corbyn fan at all. I donít necessarily abhor the tidies - David Cameron was pretty decent in some ways - but May has been a mess since she arrived. How she won the leadership Iíll never know.

        But Iíll say this - we donít have any decent politicians ready to lead a party, never mind the country. Politics needs a shakeup and this is why there hasnít been a clear, outright majority since Tony Blair was in power. Blair had his faults, but you donít win four times by sheer luck.

        Personally, I thought David Milliband was a shoo in for labour leader and PM, but his sodding brother stood against him, the Judas

            Actually I think Nick Clegg would have been a better leader than Cameron, May or Corbyn.

                Libdems acted like the coalition was solely Nick Cleggs' decision in order to hedge their election losses.
                Tories having to deal with a coalition mode was actually quite okay in comparison to the current shambolic situation.

                  The coalition did work well imo, but Clegg was useless.

                  • ...sue the EU!

                    Theresa May: Trump told me to sue the EU

                    Donald Trump told Theresa May she should sue the EU rather than negotiate over Brexit, she has told the BBC.

                    The US president said on Friday at a joint press conference he had given her a suggestion - but she had found it too "brutal".

                    Asked by the BBC's Andrew Marr what it was he had said, she replied: "He told me I should sue the EU - not go into negotiations."

                    She defended her blueprint for Brexit and urged her critics to back it.

                    She said it would allow the UK to strike trade deals with other nations, end free movement of people, and end the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

                    A White Paper published on Thursday fleshed out details of her plan, which advocates close links with the EU on trade in goods, but not services.

                      The UK is so going to become the 51st state of the US after Brexit now that he called the EU Americas enemy.

                              Nah, it was money well spent. Even if we did borrow most of it from the US.

                                • So there are 'rumors' that May is preparing for the 'no deal' scenario and I'm starting to believe it...

                                  It still doesn't seem like May's own government can agree on what kind of deal they want, let alone the rest of her party, the UK parliament, the EU commission, the EU parliament, the other 27 national governments and the other 27 national parliaments. And all of this needs to happen before November. I just don't see how that's possible. :-?

                                    I support a No Deal option. I am very surprised it hasnít been on the table all along, as it surely gives us leverage in negotiations. I appreciate we get a lot of things from outside the EU, but we could do with being a bit more self sufficient.

                                      How is it giving you 'leverage in negotiations' when you're expected to run out of food, petrol and medicine within days. Sounds dumb af.

                                      3 days after a no deal Brexit, the UK government will be willing to accept ANY kind of deal to stop people from looting / rioting.

                                          My knowledge on history is a little hazy, but I'm pretty sure the EU didn't participate in WW2 (due to lack of existence)...

                                              Whoever believes the UK will definitely suffer anything more than temporary difficulties after a no-deal exit doesn't understand how propaganda works. The UK would be worse off under any scenario the first few months after the exit. No deal would create major disruptions (again the first few months). However what would happen a year after brexit is up for debate. The EU has no reason whatsoever to allow a successful brexit because that would open the doors for potentially other countries leaving. But that doesn't mean that the UK cannot be more successful without the EU... it certainly can.

                                                Deal or no deal? Deal, or so it seems.

                                                I have to be honest, Iím so over Brexit. May has had a tough job no matter how you look at it, but the proof shall be in the pudding, as they say...
