    Next PM?

    May saying she'll go in 2 years. Trying to take some control and have a legacy of sorts me thinks.
    Is she right and will she last even that long?
    Surely by announcing the end makes her position even weaker? No authority at all.
    Think if she's going she should go now.

    I hadn't heard this, but if it's true I don't disagree, fancy working a 2 year notice!

    Could be fake news as it's the Mirror online carrying the story.

    Probably the worst PM ever, after Gordon Brown. As to who next? What a dearth of decent politicians. If it was to be a Tory, David Davies. If it was to be Labour, bring back David Milliband.

    Or to put the question another way: how would you like to be executed?!

    There was a worse pm in between those two. I can understand why TM might want out since she inherited a real poisoned chalice.

    Unfortunately, I can't think of any current front bench politicians who seem like good candidates for pm at the moment. Maybe the tories could get Ruth Davidson to swap Scottish politics for Westminster?

    They need to skip a generation, they have time before the next election, don't bring in Davies or Boris as it will be just more of the same. Surely there is someone in the party who can connect a bit with voters? And don't even go near Rees-Mogg unless they want the party to turn into a nasty caricature of itself with Victorian dad at the helm. As I'm sure his posh upper class schtick will wear off very quickly indeed, if it hasn't already.

    "May rumoured to be saying she'll go in 2 years." seems a better description!

    Seems a daft thing to announce - for so many reasons!

    Meanwhile, further down the article, (Only) "15 Tories have so far agreed to sign a letter of no confidence in the PM. It needs 48 to trigger a contest." might (or might not) be of greater concern - if indeed true! If true, I'd suggest these are quite likely simply those that strongly disagreed with the deal made (that had to be made with one of the 'opposition parties') with the DUP to stay in power!
