So, the Mail has now blamed:

May's Advisers
David Davis
Claude Juncker

Who have they missed, let me see...

Meanwhile we have exclusive footage of Paul Dacre's reaction to the exit poll :D

I have this mental image of the Mays, David Davis, and Juncker ending a tiring day hiking in the mountains with a visit to a Welsh pub. They all get drunk and can't remember whose idea it was.


Not even Mail readers are buying that one. Its a nice thought of Juncker as a Machiavellian puppet master running rings around May.

May spent the entire campaign sticking to the story that she had decided on the election whilst on a walking holiday with her husband, to try and change the story now and claim that it was actually David Davis or Juncker who persuaded her is a really stupid thing to do. If it really was David Davis who twisted her arm it just shows that she spent the entire campaign living a lie.

It would be nice to think Dacre would have enough self-awareness to work out that he didn't actually help. In an age of social media, spreading lies to demonise Corbyn was never going to work, plus voters had had a chance to compare his performance on TV with the very limited amount of what they saw of May, and they could work out for themselves that he isn't the devil incarnate. All Dacre's vicious attacks achieved was to point up the fact that he was totally unable to demonstrate a positive reason for voting for May as opposed to weak reasons for voting against Corbyn, so he did her no favours at all.

I don't recall the Mail having second thoughts until June 9th.
Dacre's just another Monday morning quarterback.

It seems she is.

Theresa May wanted to ditch 'strong and stable' slogan during botched Tory election battle because it was making her look 'stupid'

Tories would still be a minority under proposed boundary changes. Also, interestingly, SF are a bigger party than the DUP.
