Was that him with the P45?

It was funny, but not as good as throwing cash at Sepp Blatter. :lol:

Worst thing about conferences like this is all the morons on twitter pointing out completely inconsequential things that have happened. These days even the professional journalists do it, or just repost other people's tweets. :dread: :fp:

I can imagine that just as Theresa May came onto the stage, Arlene Foster ordered the DJ to play "Bitch Better Have My Money".

She'll be gone soon.

It was her make or break moment and the right-wing press have come out hard on today's nonsense (even before her lackluster delivery)

She seen across the board as ineffectual, wounded and weak - she can't recover her image from that.

The 'problem' will be that the Party won't see this as a Tory concern - but just May.

If they get rid of her, that's the keystone of all their issues gone.

Ignoing politic allegiences. The Tories need to lose. Like nearly all government parties they've gone tepid, limp and stale in power. They need to be kicked out to properly re-invigorate themselves.

Didn't Conservatives call that a communist policy a few years ago?

Anyone mentioned that May was wearing a bracelet with pictures of Frida Kahlo yet?

Frida was awesome and she's a major feminist figure and all but I'm not quite sure why a Tory would want to publicly wear images of a communist. Maybe May's stylist really strawberry floating hates her lol

I'm looking forward to watching this when I go home. The letters on the backdrop thing sounds incredible.
