Not sure about that, Aaron. Lord knows I am no monarchist but having a figurehead such as our present queen at least allows us to dicker around with various totally useless PMs.

But I agree with you totally about Mrs Maggie May (sorry, Theresa May). I'd have even preferred Giles Brandreth as PM. Anybody in fact - except the liars and self-seekers we seem to be constantly lumbered with.

How about, just for once, we get a PM who actually puts the country before themselves? And who actually will do anything to see this country thrive in the next few years even if that means going against 'party lines' and seeing themselves lose office?

Time for a little truth and honesty to make a refreshing comeback into British politics?

A PM putting the country first? Unthinkable. Fuhrer May is attempting to grab as much power as possible, so she can ignore parliamentary review - I did like the dissection of the Brexit Act by that QC fella, fingers crossed a few Tories grow a spine and vote it down, as it will remove any last semblance of democratic process from govmt mechanics.

Just look at America, and forget the whole thing.
