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.
Arthur, I heard yesterday that one reason for delaying the Queen's Speech is that the vellum on which it is written has to be specially prepared from goat skin and this takes more than a week to do!
And of course the Queens speech can’t be written until the conclusion of negations with DUP’s shopping list of wants, to secure their support; which can’t include anything to unduly upset the Scottish Conservatives e.g. DUPs Policies against LGBT.
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.
Yep Jo, Trump and May are two peas in a pod. He might be crazier, but as John said, she’s not likely to last in office as long; some are predicting only six months, some as long as two years.
If there's a "massive global resistance of good", why did Theresa May lose?
The ANSWER is Obvious ~ Aside from V. Putin who is Donald John's "PUPPET Master", Theresa May is the Lone Global ALLY he has ~ One is Severely MENTALLY ILL & BOTH are STRIVING Mightily 2 Undermine the Middle Class while APPEASING Russia
Thanks for your input ‘Alternative Prime’; you certainly have made some good valid points.
Thanks Arthur ~ The Short LIVED "Nationalistic" Movement which was FUNDED by the ULTRA-Rich as an Assault on Labor, "Crashed & Burned" with Putins Implantation of their PUPPET Donald ~ The WORLD Watches Trump in HORROR & REJECTs CONservatives
