Are the newspapers not getting bored with repeatedly predicting the imminent demise of Theresa May?

She's been supposedly on the verge of leaving for months, if not the entire term of her leadership. And yet there she stays, seemingly immune to all attempts to unseat her, like a lich queen glued to her throne, whilst the allegedly human ministers gurn uselessly in her toils, unable to deliver the fatal headshot or destroy the final horcrux or whatever the hell it would actually take to get rid of her.

Meanwhile, we continue to lurch toward zombie Brexit, every single one of us sick to the back teeth of the whole omnishambles.

Possibly related: I voted in the European elections today.

The last I saw, the Tories were going to force through a rule-change to allow an immediate leadership challenge. I can't see what difference that will make, though. The EU has closed the door on further negotiations. Unless anyone's prepared to cancel Breggzit, we're going down with the ship.

While I detest Farage and his like, if the Tories implode, it will be entirely deserved and not a moment too soon.

Now we get to watch the leadership contest, which is like a really bad and inescapable panto.

I must say I'm struggling to take an interest. They're all worst than each other as far as I'm concerned. And it may all prove to be of no consequence if voters have deserted the Tories en masse in any case.

Plug in Donald Trump, and the same thing is going on here. How I wish they were right.

He's over here now. I hope he enjoys the baby balloon.

Yeah I am waiting to see how he handles the protests.
