The DM is claiming ministers are plotting to put Gove in as caretaker PM. With only three weeks to go before 11 March, I can't see how dumping May will change anything.

Its highly possible May's lid has flipped and is going to fuck the lot of you by driving over the No Deal cliff. I doubt having Gove at the wheel is going to slam the breaks on.

She won't go; she's even more stubborn than the Maggon ever was. And she does pride herself in being a "bloody difficult woman". Nope, stuck with her until however this fiasco resolves itself is over.
The best description I've heard about Theresa May in the last few days is that she is "unflushable".

I guess Rees-Mogg and fellow swivel eyed loons in the Tory backbenches are heavily regretting prematurely shooting their load back in December.

Men in suits. French doors. Glass of whisky and service revolver.
Which for me raises the question of how is the 1922 committee any less unelected than the bureaucrats in Brussels :?

"Unflushable" a classic episode form the brilliant series Coupling.
