If she said truth about Labour she would equally get sacked. Really not sure Labour have that much more of a plan for Brexit. Both parties are pretty divided on the issue.

Even Labour will admit they can't force an election as the Tories will not do anything that would cause an election. Not even sure Boris would cause a leadership challenge here. See what happens I guess.
Whoever was in government would have trouble dealing with Brexit. Labour are as divided as the Tories and would so would be in the same mess. The Lib Dems are pretty much all in favour of remaining in Europe but of course that would be going against the will of the people in the referendum with all the grief that would bring. That leaves UKIP who are at least united and in tune with the referendum result but based on the way their officials conduct themselves it is difficult to imagine them negotiating exiting a room through an open door.

The referendum debate from both sides was a farce based on false promises and misinformation and the exit process has been as big a farce due to the hypocrisy of those outside the negotiations from all parties who pretend they have the solution to an impossible problem.

The only positive is that all this nonsense helps us to identify the politicians who aren't fit to ever be elected again and the list grows day by day.

That's half of the MPs who will be unellectable come next election. Problem now is many MP's have suddenly got morals and seem to resign if it means voting for anything that their constituency would be against. This is not helped by a very weak Tory government that needs every vote it can get.

The main division in the Tory/Labour Government is Brexit. Politics should return to normality once this is all over.

Labour can't ditch Corbyn unless he stands down. 70% of the Labour membership would vote for him. He could still become PM at some point. He has strong support with Labour voters. I am not sure the majority of voters really think much of him.

I'm not sure they would at this point. Over 70% of the membership don't want Brexit, and Corbyn is still as hardline on brexit as Boris, Reece-Mogg and DD.

Sadly I don't think you'd qualify for the BBC job as they probably want to employ someone who knows there is more than one Tory in the party
Are you that one Tory!

It seems most people who call themselves Tory do not follow Conservative principles:-

May must be loving this Trump visit. 10's of thousands protesting against Trump. This will keep the flack off her doorstep for a few days.

Shows more people seem to hate Trump than want to protest against her.

Nope but you might well be Donald Trump making such an assumption based upon a single article!
