The moment Cameron said he was stepping down it was inevitable Theresa would take over. She talks about “change”, presumably for betterment of course, so let’s see what she can do to fix this mess.

With Hilary in the game for the Whitehouse, Theresa in the House of Commons and Merkel in the Reichstag.......matriarchy anyone?

Are there any ladies up for election in France, Spain, Italy etc? Canada?

I sense something is afoot, and it doesn't involve sandwiches. (Maybe just witches)

Also a challenge to labour leadership from Angela Eagle. One would think a female trend was being put in place to help Hillary

If the Tories do defect to UKIP en- masse then a general election should be forced through. People vote (rightly or wrongly) for a certain political party, now if you voted Tory in your constituancy and they got in with a comfortable majority then by default you didn't vote for UKIP.
This is a blatant criminal act in a democratic process.
And I honestly believe that the majority of brexiters voted not to ultimately come out of the EU but as a vote of no confidence in this government thinking that it would trigger a general election and they would have another vote to get them out.

So a woman who privatised the police by stealth and handed it over to G4S, who coincidentally is married to the head of G4S, is going to be PM.

I hate right wingers but this is an absolute disaster, so happy to be emigrating.

Her husband has realesed over 500 prisoners early by accident and killed 1000 while in police custody - May has failed in every single policy she has attempted and currently hires kfc managers as heads of police as it's cheaper than employing pepople who know the job - this is going to be a disaster that akes Blair look angelic.

That's the trouble with democracy all the idiots get to vote, left or rightwing, and are so thinck they think protest votes matter/are paid attention too. UKIP have as much chance of getting elected as me getting a blowjob off the pope. They were a one trick pony.

That was fast!

The UK seems to handle leadership transitions so much more expediently than the US!


Britain is set to get a new prime minister within two days, after a tumultuous two weeks that saw the previous one toppled and several potential replacements felled by political intrigue.

Are you old enough to remember the rapid transition which deposed Maggie Thatcher?
Yes, letting the representatives make the choice makes it a much less cumbersome procedure.

Every British Prime Minister in history has been one the electorate did not vote for.
That's how the parliamentary system works.
The electorate chooses the M.P.'s, the M.P.'s choose the head of the government.

MI5 installed black boxes on all uk servers in 2001 called the National Technical Assistance Centre inside MI5s HQ at a cost of £25m. It doen't actually work though so they had to replace it around 2005 and can't sift or store the data yet.

What evidence is there to support this claim?

If you are as concerned over the relationship between government and G4S then to avoid diluting your position through errors and so granting space to those who, for whatever reason, would rather the relationship doesn't come under scrutiny then it would seem of great importance to offer only arguments which stand on solid ground.

He's a major shareholder - buy UK shareholder law, companies must act in the interests of shareholders, not the public.

The electorate chooses the M.P.'s, the M.P.'s choose the head of the government.

When voting for a PM I and others vote based on the leader and the vision they have for the future , for local issues council elections have more control.

I was just as against Brown being anointed PM as I am May , I suspect I'm not alone.

Someone has already remarked on how quickly our system works. That's because we've got a less cumbersome process.

G4S categorically states: Theresa May’s husband is NOT an officer, director or shareholder

That statement is going to need some validating too as, if correct, it certainly is newsworthy whereas if nothing more than a flimsy, casual passing shot it strengthens those who would speak in defence of government dealings with G4S it could be counterproductive to your apparent concerns.

Really, how many shares does he hold that make him a major shareholder?

And who has the male trend for the last few centuries been in place to help, or is this only when it's women for reasons I'm not sure I understand?

Democracy does tend to get a bit annoyingly cumbersome.

I for one would very much like it if we did change the 'historic British constitution'; preferably replacing it with an actual constitution.
