May Day for the Tories
Jonathan Pie provides an obituary.
You know the Conservatives are in trouble when THIS guy is considered the front runner to replace her.
You'd think with such an existential issue as Brexit looming over the UK like a falling henge, and with a schizophrenic and collapsing minority coalition government that can't decide should it stay or should it go, the obvious and necessary next step would be to call new elections so that a government with at least a modicum of legitimacy and coherence can negotiate a final deal with the EU that actually makes a bit of sense.
Calling new elections likely means that Jeremy Corbyn becomes PM, and we already know what the toffs in the UK establishment think about him.
So instead, the Tories will muddle through and, with their stiff upper lips clamped firmly to the backsides of the London bankers, hold yet another Upper Class Twit of the Year competition to see who can top Theresa May's record for shortest PM term this century.
With any luck, it'll end up a tie.
