    "Meanwhile, Labour has called on Mr Grayling to resign or be sacked, describing him as "the worst secretary of state ever".
    Ref: Cancelling proposed Ramsgate ferry service

    I really think they are right - can anyone think of a worse one?

    No, I can't, but I don't think that's the point.
    I thought I knew the reason for his staying power, but when I checked, what I had remembered from something I'd seen on the web, was Fake News!

    Worst Secretary of State for Transport? Quite possibly.

    Worst Secretary of State for any department? Well, there's some stiff competition for that prize. Davis, Johnson, and Raab are exceptionally strong candidates. :(

    While its by no means a one horse race with the current bunch of clowns, he's the odds on favourite.

    Grayling has history. I would say that he is a bit of a liability except when we want someone to carry the can for failing an impossible task.

    Greyling will probably hang on for a little bit longer, as he's also to tracking down the Unicorns and Money trees ...

    I wonder if Grayling is a human shield for the PM - so he's got to stay in post.

    Then there's this character at defence who, judging from recent utterances, knows less about the state of the UK military than the average Private Eye reader..................

    I see Ford making noises about leaving if no deal.
    Bridgend and Dagenham, both leave areas.

    And Mrs May chose to lie to Parliament today, claiming that there had been full due diligence done on Seabourne Freight. That's not what Deloitte say, as the ones who were supposed to be doing it - they said that they couldn't do the financial checks, as the incoporation date of the company was too recent.
    Misleading parliament is a resigning matter. She must now go;

    But who the F would replace her? Or even want to?

    I was doing a class the other day and was telling a story about an incident with one of my old workmates who was providing protection for her when she was home sec.

    Comments ranged up to why he didn’t shoot her, saving us from her now.

    Not that I would condone shooting her of course.

    I'd stop this whole charade, stay in the EU and then resign.
    Easy!

    I would stay for 2 years to attempt to reform parliament and the political parties, implement Leveson and prosecute those taking money from Russia to promote Brexit.

    Would any of the political parties want this poisoned chalice? I'm guessing the Labour and Conservative parties are so split by pro and anti-Brexit supporters that their current local MPs might get deselected because they're considered by some of their voters as being 'Traitors'. Maybe Labour is (secretly) hoping that when there is a general election, the Liberal Democrats will get lumbered with it, rather than them?

    No, far too quick and painless. ;)


    I'm wondering if she's deliberately doing something that will make her have to resign, as it's the easy way out.

    You are way more diligent than I would be. I'd vote for you!
