You really are a massive ..... I won't say more for fear of being banned. But this thread is purely designed to cause anger!! You are nothing more than an inflamer, I hope you are proud to be a purveyor of hate and nothing more. Seems like such an empty and pointless life :(

I have met Jeremy Corbyn and he does talk rubbish. And I once had the pleasure of meeting Wilfred Bramble (steptoe) and he would collect anything. I bet Scapegoat has not met either, so his comments are a load of tosh. I am not a purveyor of hate, I would kiss your backside to prove a point but that ain't going to happen, never because I wouldn't know what condition it would be in.

I think Corbyn has been known to talk rubbish. He has some very good ideas and then some really terrible ones. Basically, he's your typical MP :-D

There is not one MP that is my MP. I said I have never voted, don't you remember. Out those MP's that are on the gravy train now, which one did you vote for?

On 30 June 2016, May announced her candidacy for the leadership of the Conservative Party to replace David Cameron, who resigned following the outcome of the European Union membership referendum in which 52% of voters voted in favour of leaving the EU. May emphasised the need for unity within the party regardless of positions on leaving the EU, saying she could bring "strong leadership" and a "positive vision" for the country's future. Despite having backed a vote to remain in the EU, she insisted that there would be no second referendum, saying: "The campaign was fought... and the public gave their verdict. There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door... Brexit means Brexit". An opinion poll that day found 47% of people choosing May as their preferred candidate to be Prime Minister.[138]

May's supporters included a number of Cabinet ministers, such as Amber RuddChris GraylingJustine GreeningJeremy HuntMichael Fallon and Patrick McLoughlin.[139] She won the first round of voting on 5 July, receiving support from 165 MPs, with rivals Andrea Leadsom receiving 66 votes and Michael Gove 48. After the results were announced, May said she was "pleased" and "grateful" for the support of other MPs and confirmed that she wanted to unite the party and the UK, to negotiate the "best possible deal as we leave the EU", and to "make Britain work for everyone".[140] The two candidates with the fewest votes, Liam Fox and Stephen Crabb, immediately announced their support for May.[141] May came in first place in the second ballot on 7 July with an overwhelming majority of 199 MPs, compared with 84 for Leadsom and 46 for Gove, who was eliminated.[142] Afterwards, May stated that she was delighted with her support among MPs, and she progressed to a vote of the Conservative Party membership against Leadsom.[143]

On 11 July, Leadsom announced her withdrawal from the leadership contest hours after May had made her first official campaign speech, saying her lack of support amongst Conservative MPs compared to May would be too great a hindrance to becoming a credible Prime Minister.[144] As the sole remaining candidate, May was formally declared Leader of the Conservative Party that evening.

 

Why are all those MP's so against her now.
