No sympathy for Theresa May from me. This thread by Immigration and asylum barrister explains why.

Breaking; Larry the cat announces his resignation, cites prospect of sharing a house with Boris Johnson as "beyond the fucking pale". It's understood he's approached for a potential role at Bute House.

I think she was genuinely sorry, but for herself, I'm afraid. I found it risible and completely inappropriate that she compared her attitude to the very brave, Sir Nicholas Winton. Not usually so cold about these things, but honestly!

I should add that, sadly, I think the odds are in your favour. The handful of historians I know have been far, far better at predicting outcomes recently than any of the political pundits. It's very worrying when you think what the current trends are reminiscent of.

I hope you're wrong too, Rainer...but I think the rise of the dreaded Boris makes it unlikely you are. I always thought Trump would win, but I honestly thought would never happen.

He would do a much better job than Boris. His inability to speak would be a huge advantage in comparison.

No, it won't. And I see No deal Brexit as once again a horrific possibility...given the possible successors :(

By 9am that something was very wrong was already obvious. The failure was systemic. It does not matter if deliberate or inadvertent, it was no doubt avoidable. And it was just allowed to happen. Systemic disenfranchisement for a major election, in the UK in 2019.

I've been turned away from the polling station saying I'm not eligible to vote despite the fact I've got a polling card received and have registered too. My local council failed to send out the declaration form...

Today's itinerary: Morning: vote Afternoon: get married. 2019 really is turning out to be a fantastic year at casa McLean. My only regret is we couldn't train the cats to carry in the rings...
