"no official confirmation of 48 letters yet"
BBC play someone defending her

Good to see you commenting, TBYJ. You’ll not be surprised that I totally agree with you, though I do regret that we have no equivalent to the 2nd amendment. I’m not sure I can agree with your last word, though – I live in dread.

These remain politicians really have screwed things up royally now haven't they.

They are so desperate to stay in the EU that they have now backed themselves in to a corner where even if the EU allowed the UK to stay it would be as nothing more than a slave state (by listening to them talking this evening on the news).

These spineless twats should NEVER have been allowed anywhere near negotiations with the EU. And just as Trump is blessed with the idiots he faces in Washington, so to the EU has been blessed by those that have been sent to negotiate the UK's surrender on BREXIT.

The excellent Owen Paterson has written a letter of no confidence in the PM to the 1922 Committee chairman. Dunno if this takes the number to the required 48. Either way, her ministers need to tell her to step down now.

The point is not her, her dignity, her feelings. The point is that our great nation deserves to be led by a politician with guts, one who knows how to fulfil a democratic mandate, one who will further the national interest. This person was a pretty decent Home Secretary but has been an utter disgrace as Prime Minister.

Major, Brown and Wilson all did rather well considering the challenges they faced as Prime Ministers.
Blair wasted too much time on animal welfare and then neglected Iraqi civilian welfare entirely.

The rest were pathetic. But I would still put May as better than Heath who was better than Cameron. Considering the challenges they faced, I mean.

In fact, I would put May as fourth worst post-war PM, (being charitable to Thatcher as she meant to cause simultaneous high inflation and unemployment as a price she thought worth paying to change the UK's direction).

My list:
4th Worst: May
3rd Worst: Eden
2nd Worst: Heath
Worst : Cameron.

I saw the ice ... I also see that few asked the obvious question - how did it get there? (The effing BBC + Guardian swerved the detail) - I didn't see a sponsor mentioned so one might be excused for wondering if taxpayer largess brought the ice to London?

Justine Simons (who she?), London’s deputy mayor, and Michael Bloomberg took a photo-op at the site.

The Guardian platforms Green loon in The London Assembly as well... "Carbon Neutral by 2030" - a motion passed they say - I say political bovine scatology.

It seems Theresa May is trying out some of Zeno's paradoxes. The paradoxes are wrong in the physical world, but the political world is different. If you can identify an infinite number of steps between where you are and where you're going, it's a pretty safe bet you'll never get there.

I think Mark Hodgson is right to be pessimistic.
