    I’m liking my mp at leased he’s on the money here 

     

    Well said that man.

    Our constituency voted 70 to 30 to leave.

    Not sure my MP thinks that way as hes a TM lover.

    If he doesn't do what we voted for he'll be out.

    Not sure I want Boris the Bungler to be PM, surely JRM is far better.

    That's a vote of no confidence triggered, I hope they can replace disMay with someone who actually believes in brexit, but I won't hold my breath.

    Yep,at this moment in time they just have to get one issue right but whoever tries will have an uphill battle now.

    May has stitched us up !

    I think that's another manipulation to get her 12 months unchallenged leadership and in some ways I agree that now is not the time for a challenge. I can't see 158 Conservative MP's ousting her - but could be wrong.

    That is indeed the key question.  However - since the DUP have said that no longer have confidence, IF she stays on there will be a vote of no confidence in the government (which her party would almost certainly loose).  There would then be a general election - and she would be party leader - could she win?  I think not.

    That is the problem............we can't choose! We are entering unknown ground, where the choice is Theresa May........or A N other?.....Indeed it could be anyone?

    Nigel is free...………….

    I would like to point out because a lot of people, including TM, are trying to bury it. The vote was for a hard Brexit. David Cameron made that completely 100% clear before the referendum 

    Not a fudged half hearted compromise, if people like TM and Ollie Robbins hadn't been trying to negotiate a non Brexit we wouldn't be in this ++++ now with no clear plan

      Shame that. ------------------- My choice would be JRM, at the moment, a no nonsense approach and get us out of this mess that May has created.

    To quote a fishing mate of mine "This Brexit thing is great for democracy. The original result of the referendum got rid of Cameron and brought in a PM that no one voted for. She then called a General Election and barely got voted for and had to shack up with a load of loons to form a non effective government. Now she might get ousted and we get yet another PM no one voted for. Yay Brexit"

    David Davies.

    Friends of my family know him (I don't) and they say the same.

    I think he would be a good choice ....... but I'm not sure he will stand.  He is a back bencher, so no ministerial experience.

    I do wonder if he could win a general election as he is seen as too 'toff'.

    On leaving Bec Grammar School in Tooting, his A Level results were not good enough to secure a university place, so Davis worked as an insurance clerk and became an infantry soldier in the Territorial Army's 21 SAS (Artists) Regiment, in order to earn the money to retake his examinations. After doing so, he was able to win a place at the University of Warwick (BSc Joint Hons Molecular Science/Computer Science 1968–71). Whilst at Warwick, he was one of the founding members of the student radio station, University Radio Warwick and he founded a men's choir.[7] He went straight on from there to London Business School, where he got a master's degree in Business (1971–73), and, later, Harvard University (Advanced Management Program 1984–85).

    Davis worked for Tate & Lyle for 17 years, rising to become a senior executive, including restructuring its troubled Canadian subsidiary, Redpath Sugar.[8] He wrote about his business experiences in the 1988 book How to Turn Round a Company.

    Lazy and not over bright ?

    A man who worked his way up from nothing to become a government minister, with no silver spoons in sight, and no dirt involved.
    A rarity in politics.

    Fair enough Rewulf, I agree that's does not sound like a person who is lazy and not very bright.

    I did particularly state that "some say" because I don't have an opinion myself, not really knowing anything other than what I read.

    I actually quite respect him, but since he turns 70 this month, and has already had the 'Brexit Secretary' job, he may know a good time to keep his head down.
