It couldn't get any worse it might just be around the corner. Political Betting has the following as favourites to replace Theresa May.
Is this really the best the Conservatives have to offer. We are so screwed for the longer term it's truly frightening. David Davis is the truly frightening front runner, Jacob-Rees Mogg would certainly be a true posh boy in charge and Ruth Davidson would just shout at everyone but have the Tories ever been as vacuous as they are right now. The fact that Theresa May is Prime Minister shows how bereft of talent the UK, and in particular the English, political scene has become. Labour have Jeremy Corbyn and the Liberals Vince Cable, we really are up shit creek without a paddle.
I don't think anyone really knows if the money behind the Conservatives will force a leadership challenge this year, probably not. They will probably wait until Brexit really starts to be the disaster in negotiations that many think it will be. Whatever happens though the Conservative Party are in serious trouble, as are Labour and the Liberals, and ultimately us. There is no leader in the U.K. that really stands out.
We are fortunate to have Nicola Sturgeon but at a UK level there is no one. It's interesting that Damian Green is so low down, it must be because he is soft on Brexit and while I can't stand any of them he comes across as the most professional to me.
The main players in my lifetime have been Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron and May and the sad reality is that Thatcher and Major were probably the most competent of that bunch but the bar keeps getting set lower. If the list above doesn't encourage or scare people into voting yes nothing ever will.
