    I'm sure he was and still is. I meant in the sense that there is one less Tory to worry about.

    Although he'll be replaced by a Theresa-loving fanatic *cough* Robert Courts, so really you'll have an even stauncher Tory in the house to replace him

    Are you not concerned with how your party seems to be morphing into UKIP?

    Just look at the reaction of senior Tory MPs to the judges, questioning their credibility and integrity and accusing them of all sorts.

    Liberal tories need to speak up, now more than ever.

    I was concerned when they were talking about lists of foreign workers and grammar schools, but apart from that I'm not too unhappy.

    I personally think May didn't want the job and only took it because the media said she was the front runner without even a declaration. You just have to see what the BBC said when May was appointed Home Sec last year, apparently she claimed that she didn't want to role as it was too tiring.

    If only it was Gove or DC just stayed in the job
