Well if May and Corbyn stitch up this customs union plan and force the Withdrawal Agreement through Parliament, I think it could happen once it sinks in with the general public that the bastards have delivered up the country as an effective province to the EU.  >:(

Not saying like you know.
But when that blurt bloke signed us up to that human rights thingy, wasn't his wife a barista, and hasn't she since made shed loads of dosh, looking to defend scally scumbags who have broken the law, and dubious cases against hmg.  A serving PM wouldn't try to advance himself or his wife, financially would he.

Mrs Thatcher was of her time, and the country need her, biggest mistake was the poll tax. Since then all been spineless and foooking useless, this country needs a strong single-minded person to stand up for the country and it's moral code, Thatcher I think did this, And it's what's needed again, A leadership that will stand up against Europe tell them this is the deal, and to sort out all the wet snowflakes we have trying to ruin this country even more...  Thinks maybe this TB bloke might be worth voting for  :y

BG, I have yet to hear a sensible, reasoned argument against the Poll Tax. As I understand it, one earner, one tax/rates bill.
Those that mainly objected were those who lived in (council?) houses with multiple wage earners yet only paid the same amount as a lone pensioner, using minimal services.

Ron.
I do have to agree, it is the fairest way.  Not withstanding the complete incompetence of local councils.

Tony's wife made coffee for all the scumbags? That's dedication.  ;D

Blair. It seemed to me that he set out to do as much damage as he possibly could to his own country, and was extremely successful at doing so.
This country will never recover from the damage he did to it.
Brown doesn't really get a look in. As Chancellor he was the worst of modern times, but as PM he was just out of his depth and didn't last very long.
May is an utter disaster ,so far out of her depth it would be funny if it wasn't so tragic. The Tory party had the chance to ditch her last December, but although the back benches voted to get rid of her, those on the payroll voted for their own careers above the good of the country, and should never ever be forgiven for it.
The only one on the list who deserved to hold the office was Thatcher. Love her or loathe her, she loved this country, believed in its potential and created the conditions for it to realise its potential.
The most effective politician of my lifetime. The second most effective- love him or loathe him -  would be Farage.

Not a great fan Blair but he did win three elections all with an overall majority.

The opposition must have been piss poor. ;)

Yes, how Blair won the 2005 election after Iraq and all the shenanigans that led up to it I'll never know.....

He was a superb politician, no denying that. So were Hitler, Stalin, Lenin etc.....
And yes, the opposition was piss poor. The Tory party completely lost its way early in Thatchers third term. It has never recovered and it must be very doubtful that it ever will.
Labour is in at least as much trouble. It is now run by what used to be the Socialist Workers party (the left wing equivalent of the BNP).
It shouldn't be possible for them to win an election from the extremes, but all the rules have pretty much disappeared in recent times, so who knows.

Blair was a conman who was good at telling people what they wanted to hear, then lying his way out it when his promises failed to materialise. Most politicians do this of course but he took it to a whole new level, and made an art form out of it. He was a British Bill Clinton.
He also had the advantage of a mostly tame media, and for those who weren't tame he had Alistair Campbell to terrorise them into submission.
I have always thought of Campbell as something close to evil, despite his often friendly persona.
