Election results 2019: Former PM Theresa May is asked about projected Tory win - BBC News

  • Published on Dec 13, 2019
  • Former Prime Minister Theresa May says she is "very pleased at the majority" her successor appears to have secured.

    She held her own seat of Maidenhead too.

    Asked how he managed a majority when she didn't, she says: "At this election people were faced with a very clear choice on whether they wanted to ensure Brexit was delivered and knew if a Conservative majority government got in they would deliver Brexit.

    "This election was about ensuring we could get over this deadlock in Parliament, get Brexit done and move on."

    And can Mr Johnson get a trade deal with the EU by the end of next year?

    "Yes," says Mrs May. "Because actually a lot of work on that has already been done, both in the original set of negotiations and in the political declaration.

    "With the will on both sides to ensure we can now deliver, yes it is possible."

    TREASON MAY tried her best to sell us out to the rotten EU, but thank goodness she failed, because the British voters cannot be fooled. She was the worst PM in British history, and should not have stood again as an MP. It sickens most Leavers, to have to see her face in Parliament any longer. The Tories' election victory in Dec 2019 was despite her. She deliberately threw away the 2017 election and the 12-majority, with a Manifesto from hell of: Dementia tax, Pension triple-lock gone, school meals cut, and FOX-HUNTING reintroduced (opposed by 80% of voters), no attractive polices at all, and Leaving the EU was barely mentioned in the campaign. Who in their right mind would expect to do well with this terrible Manifesto??? She did not expect or want to do well. Mrs Treason so obviously wanted to hand all the power to Remoaners in the Parliament, as she did - and to make it much easier for them to sabotage everything, as they did.

    12th of December - the day the UK chose fascism. A dark day, the consequences of which will be remembered for decades to come.
    Those who voted for the fat BJ bloke will realise the mistake they have made soon. They have been fooled by an Eton pig who will destroy the country beyond measures.

    Under SNP tenure in Scotland:
    Increase in crime rate and overcrowding in prisons,
    Breakdown in discipline in schools due to implementation of failed restorative practice schemes,
    Biggest drugs death crisis in Europe as a result of defacto decriminalisation,
    High young white male suicide rates,
    Police Scotland relying on thread-bare resources.
    For example.

    Appalling excuse for a political leader. She lied about her doings in Brussels. She signed us up to the European Arrest Warrant when she didn’t have to. Not conservative in a meaningful sense, quite a Blairite lefty really.

    Andrew Neal is shit stirring about Scottish independence. I use think he was a professional journalist he is only a shit stirrer. Even when he interviews party leaders he is arrogant and insulting. Boris was right in not giving him an interview. The election results speaks for it self.
