    Mays finished. Never trust a politician, she trusted hers, they’ve stabbed her in the back to protect themselves.

    then that fckface corbyn will get in and totally screw up the democratic system of going against the majority of the people and wanting another referendum on stay/leave.

    It'll will get a lot worse in the next few days/weeks with all taking sides. The only real winner is the tabloids they will be rubbing their hands on our misfortune

    BBC News Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as foreign secretary


    Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has been named as the new foreign secretary after Boris Johnson resigned over the prime minister's Brexit strategy.
    Culture Secretary Matt Hancock replaces Mr Hunt as health secretary, as Theresa May carries out a reshuffle of her top team.
    Attorney General Jeremy Wright is the new culture secretary.
    It comes after a day of political crisis at the top of government over the prime minister's Brexit plan.
    Mr Johnson claimed in his resignation letter that her approach would lead to a "semi-Brexit".
    Mrs May said she was "sorry - and a little surprised" by Mr Johnson's move after his apparent support on Friday, when ministers held talks at Chequers.
    She said the deal agreed by the cabinet after their "productive discussions" at Chequers would "honour the result of the referendum" and allow the UK to "take back control of our borders, our law and our money".

    Did you get that quote from the Sun? Mail? as he nor Labour have ever said or even indicated they would go against the will of the people quite the reverse, I hope there isn't an election because who ever is in charge of this shit storm will be out of government for a long time after the next election.

    They will never get agreement on what they want, you could ask 100 brexit voters what they wanted, would accept or expected and get 50 different answers, no matter what they come up with at best you will only ever please about 10% of brexit voters if you are lucky.

    You may well not have heard of them but it's warning from disgruntled Tories that they are capable of continuing to inflict damage on the PM unless she changes tack

    All you fucks who voted for Brexit deserve this, at least Farage got paid. The smart thing for Theresa to do is to say the referendum is not legally blinding (which is true) and then bend over for the EU, rollback all this shit.

    You know i was talking to a few of my relatives, who all voted to leave. It's like they forgot their own skin color and the hardships they went through. They did not understand the concept that if your out of Europe and the market, there is no legitimate reason for big businesses to stay in the UK and the EU has no reason to go soft with Brexit, if anything the EU will be more aggressive to prevent other countries from doing stupid referendums.

    My biggest question in all of this is about David Davis.

    He said in an interview yesterday, that he didn't agree with the Brexit plan that had been agreed, and because he would have deliver it, he therefore had to resign.

    So my question is, if he doesn't like and cannot deliver the plan that he has been leading, then what the fuck has he actually been doing for the past two years??!

    When cnuts that can't count realise with the help of those that CAN count that they will NEVER get brexit through parliament.

    It will end when people accept that there was never an offer on the table and flouncing out was never going to change that.
    It will end when brexit voters realise that BMW nor any other car manufacturer run the EU....It's much bigger than a few german car makers.
    There will be no ge this year. May will easily win any no confidence vote.....those pesky numbers and counting thing again....oh and corbyn and labour would do very well indeed to let the nasty party get on with self emploding and generally fucking things up as punishment to the voters who still returned a conservative majority last ge.....you get what you pay for....you vote for this shit (not you personally micky) then you deserve every extra day/week/month that you suffer the results.
    Anyone who wanted brexit should have voted ukip .....and got what they deserved, but that pesky numbers thing again.....Even Diane Abbott has managed to win a seat in westminster.....something Farage "the great leader" never managed.
