UK General Election 2017 the Government Now Laughing Stock of the World?


There was no need to call the General Election, but with the Conservatives being 24% ahead in the polls the Prime Minister wanted to increase her 12 majority; but it backfired big time, and now she has a minority Government fully dependent on the DUP in Northern Ireland for a narrow majority of 2 votes over all other political parties. A controversial decision as it breaks the British Governments neutrality in the Northern Ireland Peace Treaty of 1999. How does the rest of the world see Theresa May, does she look like a good leader or does she look like a lame duck?

    Highlighted in news yesterday; the Salisbury Convention (House of Lords Reform 1911) only applies to Legislation in a manifesto. Therefore, as most of the Queens Speech will not have been in Manifesto, it will unusually give the Lords veto powers.

    It's getting worse for TM - not helped by her appearance of lack of feeling over the Kensington fire tragedy. Few people think she can last much longer in office.

    If there's a "massive global resistance of good", why did Theresa May lose?
