So they end up with Corbyn and Diane Abbott in power? Jesus. That’s a disaster.

Theresa May needs to be ridden out of #10 Downing on a rail. She has been a catastrophically bad PM.

Corbyn doesn’t get to take over automatically. If May’s government falls there will be a new general election.

Bo Jo and the other guy who resigned - my read - cannot stand her ‘soft’ no-exit Brexit and will not lend their names to it. They resigned in protest. I don’t believe her coalition will last. Perhaps Boris will lead the next challenge and really implement Brexit.

I’d be livid if I’d voted for Brexit and got a lapful of EU-light.
