Revenge is a dish best served cold!

Andrea Leadsom has waited, patiently, for nearly three hard, bitter years, working for a woman who, some believe, was responsible for the diversionary tactics which forced her to withdraw from the Tory Leadership race.


She made an off-hand remark about Theresa May during a newspaper interview, in which she suggested being a mother meant she had a larger stake in society than May. She admitted she had been left in tears at the weekend after a stream of colleagues said she was inexperienced and had been insensitive. She was also targeted by comments saying she had padded her CV regarding her position at a firm of investment bankers. Instead of battling on, and at least giving the Tory electorate a chance to state their choice, she withdrew, and let May become Prime Minister by default, or coronation; or whatever!


She had served In the previous Cabinet, she then served under May in DEFRA, and then as Leader of the House. Some naively considered her a May loyalist, but I believe she was patiently awaiting the time when Theresa May really depended upon the Cabinet’s backing, as she foolishly pushed for the Withdrawal Bill (with added referendum and ‘worker’s rights’)


Like the very successful assassin she has turned out to be, she knew exactly the right time to slip the dagger in between the ribs of this foolish woman who had proclaimed ‘Leave’, and then had done everything to abort that ‘Leave’ procedure.


Now that’s the sort of politician I understand; and if I were still a Tory Party member, I would give her my vote for Prime Minister! There is only one caveat to that statement. Leadsom initiated the Sukkuk, or Islamic Bond in the UK financial sector. Mussie Lovewr????

    Your analysis is very different from mine.
    I think all Leavers should have resigned immediately the famous Chequers concluded.
    They should all have driven to Chequers in their personal cars, and briefed the press that they were doing so. That would have gone a small way to blunting the threat that Mrs. May issued, that anyone who didn’t support her proposal would need to get a taxi home. The implication was that they would be sacked on the spot.
    The ONLY person who came out of that day with any credit was David Davis, who resigned more or less immediately.

    The current Great White Hope, Boris the Buffoon, vacillated and waited a couple of days before he followed Davis’s lead. Davis was the leader, Johnson was the self-serving follower who checked the direction of the wind first.

    Leadsom’s resignation yesterday was far too late; and remember that she voted for the Withdrawal Agreement three times.

    `The least bad potential leader for the Conservatives is Steve Baker – some ministerial experience but untainted by the treachery of May’s Cabinet, and he is a principled Leaver.

    Leadsom is smart, but she might have a job washing Teresa’s shit off the blanket, Sukkut is just a way of getting oil money without interest, shows she doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty and she knows those Pratts in Brussels can’t wait to smother the City. There is a great big wide world waiting for us to trade with, without the EU handcuffs on us.

    She is hanging on for Donald and the State visit and dining with the Queen, she wants glory in it, that is what important to her. so you can all get stuffed until Donald goes home.

    “Andrea Leadsom seemingly could not even persuade even one of them to resign with her. And she wouldn’t be pressed by a reporter into saying Mrs May must quit. Whyever not?

    The rest of them – including the emasculated Sajid Javid and Jeremy Hunt – are, once again, sucking it up and big time, being turned away from Number Ten’s door. The 1922 Committee is a paper tiger. Something that goes unreported is that its deputy chair, Charles Walker, is an avid supporter of Theresa May. They are not changing the rules to allow for an earlier vote of no confidence.

    Liam Fox, Michael Gove, Sajid Javid, Chris Grayling, Penny Mordaunt – all bar Sajid were prominent in the Vote Leave campaign – yet still they don’t resign or call for May’s immediate resignation. They are indeed complicit in this disaster.

    When will they climb out of the Cabinet bunker they chose to occupy with Kim May and her Remainer backers? Ever?”

    There’s an awful of lot pf POPU (‘person or persons unknown’) involved in the Cameron-May-Leadsom saga.
    The POPU who made Cameron resign
    The POPU who got Leadsome to pull out
    The POPU who intro’d her to Robbins and Sedwill.
    Tip: Whitehall, Home Office, FCO, MI6:
