What I’d like to know is this.

If she was appointed Tory leader / PM under the premise that she would commit to delivering the people’s will of Brexit, then what is it she should have done differently?

Try to leave personal impressions out of it. If you’ve got nothing to negotiate with, you either take your beating, or you buy enough time until you get something to negotiate with (or at the very least, you’re given something just to go away).

I don't like the woman but she was stuffed before she started. How can she win with this mess.

Farage shouldn't be allowed near our tvs. Absolute cretin who robbed money from the eu when it suited him.

But clearly too stupid to realise that she was stuffed.

Or so arrogant that she believed that she could magically unstuff herself.

Very possibly the latter.

The woman is a joke. She's listening to trump too much- say something is true and then people will believe it.

Clyne was decent for Bournemouth against Everton at the weekend. He seems to have a lot of speed about him. Bernard has a lot of tricks but he was always closed down by Clyne. Seemed solid and very fast.

On that note I don't get the fuss with nandos. Overpriced and mediocre.

I agree with your first 2 paragraphs but not your 3rd one as I don't think he is being cynical here.

I would have been all for Corbyn too. If he was strong he'd be in power. Instead we have the tories who probably have a number of top people who'll get very rich of this directing already poor people to become even poorer. Corbyn has no real clear stance on what he thinks about Brexit. He offers very little in the way of alternatives. He was the person who I would have hoped would have offered something here but he has offered nothing.

The tories and Farage created this mess but they couldn't care less about "common" people so you never would have held out any hope for them. I held out some hope for Corbyn and find he has been a huge let down and to be honest Labour need to get rid. There is a smear campaign against him yes but not because of that because he will never ever see a better chance to take the bull by the horns and he couldn't do it. It's not just that he couldn't do it but it's the complete lack of decisiveness to do anything.

Genuine question.  What do you think is the reasoning behind his (lack of) position on this?

I'm really struggling to work out why he has such a laissez faire attitude to the whole thing.  All I can come up with is what I said above.  Would be really happy to be corrected as to his motives.

You raise a good question and I am not sure of the answer but to be totally honest I think a lack of competence comes into it. That and a lack of conviction. He doesn't like the EU which I would expect of people of his kind of belief system but he just isn't competent enough to try and come up with an answer(though to be fair none of them are).

I just don't think he would be cynical enough to let things fall to shit to get into power. I could be very wrong on that and he could be like every other politician about mind you...

You have a guy who genuinely seems to love the club and who wants to play positive football. That as opposed to someone who loved himself and didn't want to play positive football makes a massive difference. He also seems to understand it better which seems to help.

That being said it will be interesting to see how it all goes when they do lose / draw games and it'll be interesting to see how the likes of Pogba reacts. He has shown he is clearly world class when he wants to be but I do wonder will he keep it up.

They're a bit tory like in who they have parachutes for though but yeah I would say you're pretty much right anyway.

Some politicians resign but these ones never will. What Paisley was up to would never have stood anywhere else and now he's talking about May making him a cup of tea in a speel which was clearly incredibly arrogant never mind the blatant sexism.The arrogance of these people know no bounds. With things like RHI they'll be alright though but once again they will shaft most of the people who vote for them and they will continue to vote for them.

I am unsure if they understand the implications yet. This is the biggest thing which could wreck their precious union and even if a quarter of the doomsday scenarios predicted come true they are bound to lose some voter base. They are bound to surely...
