New Conservative Leader / Prime Minister

Well Andrea Loathsome has withdrawn so it looks like the new leader will be Theresa May.

Anyone have any thoughts or opinions (or silly pics in the case of @John Marwood) on this? :hmm:

I've come to the conclusion that politics today is a really shitty occupation practiced, on the whole, by people who are a bunch of shits only in it for themselves. Political campaigns are now based on lies, fear and hate. Facts are now looked on as negative, pessimistic and even unpatriotic.

What a terrible political time this is.

To be fair to politicians (!), that is really a problem with the electorate.

If people are happy to believe even the totally obvious lies, then they are left with little choice but to join in and try to lie better than the others.

Could not agree with you more.

I was expecting a bit more of a fight between May and Leadsom but I think Leadsom derailed her own campaign with her comments this weekend. May was probably the least worst choice out of the bunch. I don't expect there will be an election called now so May will be there until 2020 ?
Latest report says May will be in No 10 by Wednesday evening.

I had some money on May, thank you Leadsom for being such a disaster, I didn't have to wait until September to collect.
