Mayexit

By Mahons On May 24th, 2019

The British Prime Minister has announced her resignation. She will leave June 7th, the day after the anniversary of D-Day when the UK sought to liberate Europe and not liberate itself from Europe.
She was a charisma challenged leader in a no win situation. She will be replaced by another. When you vote for easy slogans instead of difficult policy this is the chaos you get. You reap what you sow.
I imagine she must have a sense of relief. Someone else can be the lightning rod for the mess. As the great Ed Koch once said when voted out of office and replaced by an incompetent hack, “The People have spoken, now they must be punished.” In May’s defense the people have spoken, but only in a tower of Babel sense. The loud divergent voices unable to get their act together.

  1. I can’t help feeling sorry for May. She inherited an unholy mess.

    My worry is that cluless f****** clown, Boris Johnson will be on next prime minister.

  2. better Boris than Jeremy

  3. What? There is no way one of the great modern Western Democracies would elect a bumbling clueless self promoter as its leader…oh wait. Shit.

  4. Mahons

    Bollocks! We’re f*****! 😀

  5. 🙂

  6. Patrick Van Roy,

    better Boris than Jeremy

    Only in the sense that it’s like being asked which one of your testicles you want the rabbid dog to chew off.

  7. damn that’s graphic

  8. Yes, she was a plodding Hillary type. Though I am not sure than anyone could have done better, considering how complex the issues are, and how divided the UK is.

    If Boris replaces her, we can have empty head braggarts at the head of both our countries. We’ll be a long way from FDR and Churchill.

  9. Trumps better than FDR

  10. When you vote for easy slogans instead of difficult policy this is the chaos you get.

    I agree.

    Someone else can be the lightning rod for the mess.

    Yes. A mess that she and her Remainer chums and Civil Serpents created.

    We had two choices. Either agree to the WA or, Leave without one. Parliament could not agree, therefore, after telling everyone we would Leave at the set date (29th March 2019) over 100 times, we didn’t. And she made that decision and told the rEU27 BEFORE telling her Cabinet colleagues and the country.

    She’s going. I am actually going to miss her because IF we are to Leave the EU, then we need a government that wants to deliver. The BREXIT Party is not quite ready so this is a bit sooner than hoped. Oh, well. How sad. Never mind.

    Those aren’t the only two choices. There are others. Such as not leaving at all.

  12. //I am not sure than anyone could have done better, considering how complex the issues are, and how divided the UK is.//

    It looks like that, but don’t forget how she mixed up a confused situation even more.

    Pragmatism and compromise is the key to politics, of course, but a leader must also have a bit of backbone and a few principles. TM was too concerned about being attacked from within her party, too concerned about holding onto her job, too keen to be liked.

    When she was elected she should first have done a bit of thinking and looked for some sound advice from more experienced heads. Her “Out means Out” (not to be confused with Margaret Thatcher’s “Out, Out, Out” speech) may have sounded statesman-like to naive Brexit ears, but it was foolish and unnecessary. An American president may be able to get away with facile rhetoric that has to be revised almost immediately, but Britain is a parliamentary democracy and its lawmakers are much less tolerant of stupidity. In the end, it came back to haunt her when it became clear that there was no consensus in Britain on what the word “out” means.

    She should then not have called a general election, which was again necessary, shortly after she took over. It showed her as weak and fearful, and the electorate punished her accordingly. She lost her parliamentary majority and became dependent on the DUP, who are even more confused by the whole Brexit project than the British are.

    Her recent antics in the HoC, promising before each vote something “significantly” different to her previous attempts, and which the EU would have to honour and agree to, became a farse that weakened her even more each time.

    Imagine, as late as 3 days ago she was calling for another vote on her deal, again something “significantly” different and that the EU would just have to accept this time.

    Goodbye, Mrs. May.

    Not Leaving at all was on the ballot paper. It lost ! Or had you forgotten ?

  14. Now the EU election is in the box. Ix it too soon for Remoaners to demand another vote since nobody knew what they were voting for?

  15. “Not Leaving at all was on the ballot paper. It lost ! Or had you forgotten ?”

    So? The campaign said that Leave would be the easiest deal to negotiate, and would create no problems with the border in Ireland. So the Leave that was on the ballot paper isn’t available.

    “Now the EU election is in the box. Ix it too soon for Remoaners to demand another vote since nobody knew what they were voting for?”

    Well considering that Hard Brexiters are polling in the mid 30s (Brexit Party and UKIP) then I don’t think the elections are going to have the result you think they will.

    “I am not sure than anyone could have done better, considering how complex the issues are, and how divided the UK is.”

    May’s biggest problem is that her red lines (made largely for campaigning and a failed attempt to keep the Tory Party united) have largely hamstrung her in her negotiations with the European Union. She never sought the best deal with the EU but instead sought a deal with the EU that protected her red lines (in theory) without causing chaos at the border in Ireland and without completely setting fire to the British economy. The result was a very technically, narrowly tailored deal with very little wiggle room that no one actually liked.

    She never thought to get rid of her red lines, she never sought to get consensus in Parliament before negotiations, she never did the 100 different things that she could have done differently ever since becoming Prime Minister.

    Brexit is a difficult thing to solve, not least because Brexit means different things to different people. But she made a difficult thing to solve an almost impossible thing to solve.

  16. Her optimism on getting a clear Brexit done can be seen to be all the more phoney by a strange remark of hers just before the 2016 referendum.

    Being interviewed by RTE on a consequences of a possible Brexit result for Ireland, she said:

    “If you pulled out of the EU and came out of free movement, then how could you have a situation where there was an open border with a country that was in the EU and had access to free movement?”

    She was aware of the difficulties at least on that score right from the start.

  17. Single marketeer Bojo is strong favourite

    And I for one cant wait. If you think it’s been a FU under May just wait until these inept buffoons get their chance in the big seats. All that’s needed now is for a GE to be called and the BP to sweep the boards.

  18. Seamus

    So?

    Try telling that to 17.4m Leave voters ! And we have done the, who said what, stuff. I don’t care !

  19. “Try telling that to 17.4m Leave voters ! And we have done the, who said what, stuff. I don’t care !”

    And I’m supposed to care what 17.1m foreigners think?

  20. And the 16.1m who voted Remain Mark? Do such a large minority just have to lump it?

  21. Seamus, on May 24th, 2019 at 2:05 PM Said:

    “Not Leaving at all was on the ballot paper. It lost ! Or had you forgotten ?”

    So? The campaign said that Leave would be the easiest deal to negotiate, and would create no problems with the border in Ireland.

    and by sheer chance, a negotiated Leave-deal has somehow become extremely difficult, so we’ll just have to Remain – brilliant (not really) but totally obvious and absolutely dishonest.

  22. Ultimately if you can come up with a away to leave that will involve no new infrastructure or difficulties at the border you are welcome to do so.

  23. Meanwhile, population replacement continues relentlessly…….

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/21/opinion/alabama-law-abortion.html

    Pregnancy is a life-threatening condition. Women die from being pregnant. We have known that for thousands of years.

    They die from hemorrhage, infection, pre-eclampsia (which can lead to fatal seizures), obstructed labor, amniotic fluid embolism, thromboembolism, a ruptured uterus, retained placenta, hydatidiform mole, choriocarcinoma and many other causes that fill the obstetrics textbooks. Modern medicine can prevent and treat many, but not all, of these conditions. Some potentially fatal problems cannot be foreseen or prevented. Pregnancy always comes with some irreducible risk of death.

    By Warren M. Hern

    Dr. Hern is a physician and epidemiologist who specializes in late-abortion services.

    The chance of women dying as a consequence of pregnancy has been getting closer to zero the more we move forward with science, medicine and technology.

    Now is the safest time in recorded history for women to be pregnant and to deliver babies.

  24. Here’s The Guardian explaining the population replacement program that really isn’t happening, no matter what our eyes see. I’d love to hire a billboard with this on it…

    Goof luck with that one Seamus. You really think that any of the Brextremists here or anywhere else give a shit much less a thought about Ireland? It was amusing when the Brexis here used to complain about those bloody Paddies frustrating their plan for a greater Englandshire unicorn land. ‘Poor Ireland being played like a fiddle by the EU’ etc, as if the UK was in a superior position to complain about someone else’s attitude to Ireland.

    It was a winner takes all vote. Leave won ! Therefore, we should be Leaving. Not hard to understand.

    Seamus

    You seem to care enough to comment on the subject.

  27. “You seem to care enough to comment on the subject.”

    Because they are trying to drag my country down with them. Let the British have their Brexit. Just leave Ireland well enough alone.

  28. It was a winner takes all vote. Leave won ! Therefore, we should be Leaving

    Mark, there was a thin majority in the Brexit vote and expecting such a large minority just to shut up and lump it is a recipe for disaster.

    Having said that, as Seamus says above, leave Ireland out of the equation and the main Brexit problem is nullified.

  29. Seamus

    We are not doing anything to your country. All we are doing is following the rules set by the EU regards Leaving. Either give us a Withdrawal Agreement we can sign or, let us go without one.

    Paul

    Where in the rules did ever say that the result was depended on the size of the margin ? Like I said, winner takes all and we won. Just accept it.

  30. Where in the rules did ever say that the result was depended on the size of the margin?

    It didn’t but I’m talking about reality as opposed to rules.

    An uncompromising, absolutist wafer thin majority with such a large despondent minority is a recipe for disaster, (surely the British have learned something from the creation of the state of NI?)

  31. “We are not doing anything to your country. All we are doing is following the rules set by the EU regards Leaving. Either give us a Withdrawal Agreement we can sign or, let us go without one.”

    You are trying to force a part of my country to leave the European Union without our consent. You are trying to install a hard border in my country.

  32. “She was a charisma challenged leader” – of course she was. She was just another ghost-grey EU official, believing in nothing except her allegiance to globalism. Same as Hillary Clinton. You can tell them by their robotic, dehumanised demeanor. I wasn’t fooled for one moment by her faux tears; she was only upset that her surrender-treaty failed to become law.
    And she had to get some feminist Marxist claptrap into her speech: “I’m the second female PM but not the last” – what the f…I mean heck does that have to do with anything? I thought I was watching the latest season of “Dr Who” for a moment there, but she’s reading from the exact same liberal scoresheet of course. A “conservative” in name only, who seeked to deliver exit from the EU in name only. Good riddance to globalist rubbish.

  33. “When you vote for easy slogans instead of difficult policy” – garbage. We voted to leave the EU, it’s as simple as that, there are no difficulties.
    The UK existed for centuries as a sovereign independent nation before the EU was ever dreamt of, and we had no difficulty in doing so. The so-called “difficulty” was entirely manufactured by the EU, and our simple exit was deliberately thwarted by EU officials. “No Deal” has been presented as if it was supposed to mean that we would never ever talk to the EU or try to deal with it after we leave. All it really means is that FIRST we leave and THEN we deal, as an independent nation. But that simple concept doesn’t suit the agenda of globalists who hate the very idea of independent nationality (in the USA as in the UK).
    By hook or by crook, we’ll get our country back. Just watch us and learn.

  34. Had to laugh whenn Theresa May praised her alleged “conservative” government for “eliminiating plastic waste”! Ha Ha! Get out of here with your faux-religious garbage, her resignation by itself eliminates plastic waste! The only type I care about.

  35. May could have been successful if she had the fortitude to tell the DUP the border will be in the Irish Sea and you need to adjust yourselves to that.
