I think that is brilliantly self-explanatory.. :yep:

No, I do not think she was - Unlike Boris Johnson, she didn't get anything done.

I bet she must be breathing a sigh of relief that she got out before Covid-19 hit the fan.

No.
I wouldnt say she was particularly bad for the simple reason she did absolutely nothing though. She will be nothing more than an insignificant footnote in this island story.

I liked Theresa May and the 2017 manifesto in particular, but I think it's a shame how she did not win a majority.

No one liked her because of her attitude

The simple answer is no.

While she had the potential to be so, her failure to secure a majority in the 2017 election meant that Brexit was able to swallow the governments agenda with a speaker and parliament quite happy to betray her. She was therefore unable to do much at all.

No. I ended up softening to her, but it was because I felt sorry for her.

There was never anything that suggested she'd be a good Prime Minister. She was a knee-jerk right-winger whose only attribute had been longevity in an important post. She didn't do anything special in the Home Office and presided over a series of (perhaps inevitable) ****-ups.

As Prime Minister, her response was to be static. Her first speech on the steps of Downing Street was interesting - it could've shown a new direction and a real willingness to tackle major social issues in Britain. In the end, she achieved virtually none of it - she retreated, she controlled government output with a level of utter paranoia and wanted to be in control of it all - while simultaneously being a block on everything.

On Brexit, she not only created huge uncertainty over the direction of travel for Britain, she helped create a divisive post-referendum atmosphere where society became (and continues to be) seen through the lens of leavers and remainers. There was no attempt to unite the country, to bring remainers along - she clearly accepted the argument that seizing the leave vote would benefit the Conservative Party and her attitude to everyone else was '**** 'em'. Which might be fine electorally (indeed, it served her well) but solidified opposition too (hence why Corbyn in 2017 did relatively well too) - and made Britain a less cohesive society.

I'm sure she's perfectly nice to know, but as a politician she was deeply flawed in a very obvious way - and instead of overcoming her flaws, her actions just made them more and more apparent.

I remember back in 2017 talking to some builders about the election. One was ardently anti-Tory, the other was floating but was happy to say that he did like Theresa: he basically suggested that not being able to find the right words, not having the slick polish of Cameron etc, endeared her to him and made her seem more honest.

I do actually think she was quite honest as a politician. There was no pretence there, no razzmatazz. It's just that she didn't have much else. Potentially a whiff of the Gordon Brown there.
