    Re: Theresa May - Not up to the Job of PM?

    Thread seems to have wandered way off topic too.

    So May survives and is arguably stronger than a few days ago with some of her backstabbers out of cabinet.
    Even with 48 letters of no-confidence to Tory HQ there isn't a desire for a leadership contest in rest of the Tory ranks so ranks would back May. Not sure anyone would beat her in a leadership battle anyway, the hard Brexiteers won't get the votes and Johnson's stock has fallen of late, too marmite anyway. Those that say a Brexiteer should be PM are blinkered, being PM includes Brexit but it's only a small part of what a PM needs to do in their role.

    Could be May until the next GE which doesn't need to be called until 2022.

    She may be rubbish in front of a camera but she's dogged and thick skinned. Wonder if she enjoys her job?

I was even working for the Dept of Statistics for some of it!

    @Bluewolf... Apologies if you mistook my 'correction' as a humourlous over-reaction. Stats, and their misuse, are (or at least were) a topic somewhat dear to my heart/education/career!

    I think she is hating it - but is doing it because she feels a duty to do something that nobody else had the cojones do do...including all the lead Leavers who disappeared like snow off a dyke. She is sticking with it because she knows the impact of a No Deal outcome, and so a Deal is essential, and recognises she must get some form of Deal she can sell to the electorate - to try and placate the rising fury of Leave voters who feel they are being 'betrayed' (in fact some suggest they were duped - but she can't say that - yet).

    I thought she looked like the best of a bad bunch - thought there was some Christian Democrat in her, and so was willing to give her some time - and even felt some sympathy for her predicament. But as various scandals, weaknesses, pandering to anti-EU ideologues, and love of prevarication have continued - much of the sympathy I had has gone.

    But she is still, most probably, the best of an - at best - not very good bunch.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    See where this is going?
    The same place as quoting trade deficits as a percentage of respective economies i'd guess.

    At a time when the European Central Bank was injecting billions of Euros into the economy in the form of quantitative easing and had been doing so for a considerable period of time.

    It is - almost. Well in a way it actually is - if for nothing else for her resolve and standing up to the anti-EU ideologues and fanatics in her party.

    They had to that as they willfully allowed several countries into the Single Currency even though they were nowhere near meeting the fiscal limits required. But of course, that makes them exiting the EU even more difficult than us! Hence it was done.... the damage to those countries is considerable!

    Would you rather increase your 300 yard drive by 10%, or your 200 yard drive by 20%?
    Good luck. I explained it 2 years ago but someone conveniently forgot it.
