The Prime Minister has managed to stay in power for longer than a lot of people expected. Eighteen months after ascending to the highest office and seven months after that ill-fated election, when do you think she should resign?

Not now (or this year) - it'll be too risky to just throw her out and try to get in a new government during Brexit.

Just wait 'til the next election.

Announce her resignation in June 2019, with a new Conservative leader/Prime Minister elected in September.

Also maybe have a general election in October 2020 before the apparent end of the transitional period for parties to set out their vision of a post brexit UK.

Hopefully she should stay until to fight for the next general election and take the Conservatives into their worst election, electing the Labour party with hopefully a Blairite in charge and Brexit to be stopped.

If May can keep pace in polling and negotiate a Brexit deal acceptable to Tory members then she should have the right to fight the next election in 2019 however anything other than regaining the majority should see her resign.

In effect she should be rewarded for her penance.

Do you think the next election will take place in 2019?

Not now. The conservatives would just crumble without her, we have no good solid replacement lined up.

Yes. May did not become leader solely to do Brexit and so post negotiations she will want a bigger mandate or be pushed aside.

If she gets a deal done which does not screw us in polling then I think there's a good chance she calls an election.

I think there is very little chance of us not being screwed in the polling after Brexit to be honest.

Precisely. A Rees-Mogg and Corbyn PMQ session would actually be respectful and courteous.

Really, Corbyn just shouts THE TORIES for about 20 mins. Jacob on the other hand poiltley dismantles the interviewer. See his outing on HARDtalk.

Personally i thought so too however with the first phase over we saw that despite it looking poor and May caving to soft Brexit (large divorce bill, 2 year transition) our polling has held up and the ultra's capitulated for the most part.

There was a risk post-election that it could all go wrong (we looked weak needing the DUP, Labour were polling very well) but months on and Corbyn's approval ratings are still a pitiful ~35% and we are more or less tied. If we get to 2019 intact, there's a good chance we can win.

Yeah, the issue Corbyn has got is that he changes his Brexit policy more times than I change my underwear. Personally I was not comfy with a remain mp winning the leadership and I would have voted Gove myself.

The issue we have isn’t really the DUP, they will stay solid out of fear of a Corbyn government, it’s our backbenchers like Grieve and Shapps and Mogg who may cause problems.

As you can guess I’m a conservative supporter (voted for them in the election and he won) we must be rare on a forum like this.

To be honest i takethe view that she should be strung up from the nearest yard arm. She has disgraced this country and her people whilst doing her uptmost to screw the country.

Now, because she's an utterly spineless liberal sell out

Should have gone a long time ago. Don’t know how she still managed to win the snap election.
