Both very poor leaders and a big indictment of the lack of outstanding political leaders we have currently.

The EU Referendum Vote wasn't a secret ballot?

Really?

Yep, neither are any elections as all are traceable back to the individual. The official explanation is that this is in case of electoral fraud.

The votes will probably have been destroyed now though (usually kept for one year) so it will be too late to see how Irish people voted.

Maybe she will be courted as a May-replacement as she seems to show more than the current amount of common sense seen in Tory leaders?

I think all the shenanigans, Cabinet squabbles, International pressures, tensions with President Trump, has taken a toil on May this last few week and I think she is lost somewhere and it is just a shell walking around, agreeing to everything.

Re: Brexit discussion

Just stick Nigel in charge. There won't be any pressure then will there. He likes Trump, couldn't give a stuff about the EU, I'm sure he doesn't like scotland either so win win

I think there would be a lot of upset from the far left AKA Antifa, if Nigel was ever to be in the position to be in the running for leadership.

There would also be a lot of upset from middle of the road Conservatives.

It would be like putting some avowed marxists in chage of the Labour party. Oh, wait a minute....
