I like that she will not stand with Trump on torture, but she seems rather a confused woman regarding leading anyone anywhere. I can see why the Trump cult likes her though. She's as inadequately prepared for the job as he is. Although I can see why she looks dignified next to Conway & Co., she sure ain't no Thatcher.

"...Failing to state your honest opinion on the most important decision Britain has taken in decades may seem cowardly enough. But the consequences of May’s pretence do not stop with one referendum..."


Theresa May can do whatever she wants. So what does she want?

May, who began a two-day visit to the US today visited Pennsylvania to speak with both the House and Senate Republican conferences, GOP leaders at the annual congressional Republican retreat. The retreat is for GOP members. If She was to speak before a Repub -led government today, it is only logical to go where they are at.

Her main point was to warn us to watch out for Russia (To me shrug) and May said she also hoped to convince Trump of the economic and security merits of a strong Atlantic alliance as critical to United States and Western security. She will speak with the President tomorrow.

There you go no spin.

May, seems like a great stateswoman, reminds me of Margaret Thatcher.

So, happy for the UK, they now have May who will champion the interest of UK citizens!

Sky News. I watched the speech live on there, and they made a big deal out of it being the first time this has ever happened.

Actually she understands the thin skinned boor that occupies the White House. She is very carefully not giving him any reason to be angry with her or Britain. Britain without Europe or the US is headed for a real economic depression. They can no longer loot the Colonies for profits.

Right now, the 'popular vote' appears to be acting like children. Children don't get invited to grown-up meetings. So many of you have shown how immature and frankly 'mean' you can be. It IS possible to disagree and not send out your activists and idiots to destroy public property, and hurt other citizens. It would be a good thing if you all stopped trying to tear down the will of the people who elected Trump through perfectly legal means. It just all sounds so petty.


A grown-up would work to get a larger voice in a more civilized way - that is what most of us who supported Trump did. Till you realize that, I would doubt you will get seats at the table very often. Your technique is self-defeating but you don't even seem smart enough to realize that.


I was worried when May took her position that she was not strong enough - or committed enough to Brexit, etc. but so far so good. She now has an ally which I am sure helps. It is a tough job she and Britain face but I think the course they are taking is the best for them - and for Europe. And we can thank the people of Britain too for being so wise as to vote for Brexit against all odds. They took the lead and it helped us here.

Not this drivel. All that does is to increase income and wealth inequality further, which will drive even more working stiffs into despair and hopelessness.
So you haven't done too well for the last eight years.Maybe the next four will be better.

OK, thanks.

I'm not inclined to read too much into this, considering her tight schedule but it's a point of interest. Enough points become an issue. I'll continue watching and waiting.

Should be a really interesting 4 years.
