    The Cabinet is full of spineless, self servers all jockeying for position. Teaser is in thrall to Oily Robbins and other civil servants.

    Who knows where this will end up.

    Some of her kicking the can down the road is no more than the vanity of holding office longer than The Broon, so perhaps there is a plan of sorts amidst the mess.

    Just received a card urging me to back the Conservatives this week. Surprises me that anyone would think it good tactics to include a pep-talk from the PM, plus photo in case I need reminding what she looks like.

    The only card she has left is a 2nd referendum. I'm pretty sure she won't play it though.

    I do honestly believe her only strategy involves passing her deal. I think it's wait and wait and wait until Parliament is under the greatest pressure to pass it rather than allow no deal. This is mot an original prediction, but I believe it's as simple as that.

    A very good analogy. Not very poetic, but appropriate..

    There was a rather nice photo last week where Teaser turned up unannounced in Bristol to support the Tory Euro campaign. There were three candidates with very long faces which said: "Why the feck did you come here ?"

    Agree. If we have an opinion we should say it, right or wrong. But "turd and flush" analogy is good : you watch and wait but the bloody thing just won't go away.

    Apparently only 3 men and a dog turned up.
