    How long has she been PM? A few weeks? Too aggressive with moves and too arrogant to see what was needed, and leaving out all her opponents from cabinet positions. The 45p rate scrapping was the dumbest thing I’ve heard as a policy out of the door.

    Oh, just saw that she will actually be the shortest serving prime minister ever. What a ****show!

    Jeremy Hunt has ruled himself out. I expect the main battle will be between Rishi Sunak and Penny Mordaunt.

    Can we have a general election please? I'm getting real tired of seeing the Tories scrape the bottom of the barrel looking for leadership. Each Tory Prime Minister has been worst than the last.
    She got voted in by a few diehard right wing Tories and thought she could govern the whole country with ease based on that.

    Also the second shortest reign (George Canning) back in 1827, died! There's no modern equivalent to a reign this short in the UK.

    Cameron May Boris Truss.

    I would say Boris joint worst, but for different reasons.

    Yeah, she has little understanding of politics. Can't even govern your own party with that kind of backing and then going all out on policies without proper consultation. That's why it's common after a leadership election to take some of your opponents with the right skills into your cabinet so the party can unite to at least an extent.

    Bloody hell - reports that Boris is going to stand in the leadership contest too. Him getting back in would be the worst possible outcome.

    I saw that she did and I actually chuckled out loud for a moment. I knew it was coming but I did not think she would quit this early. I thought she would disaster her way through at least another few weeks.

    She wanted the record lol, although to be fair she still had a month or 2 for that. Guess she wasn’t content beating the record and wanted to smash it. :D

    I feel for the people of the UK but not so much the government. They put this woman in charge. A woman who even before taking the role was obviously ill-qualified for it. Something she immediately proved and then stuck around to reinforce before resigning.

    The lettuce would also have been a better PM than Boris or Truss.

    Factor in that there was a good 2 weeks after she was sworn in that her government did nothing, really was the shortest time as PM.

    It's barely even possible to beat this record without voluntarily trying to get yourself out.

    Fixed. :p

    It will probably be a revolving door of Tory leaders. At this rate everyone will get to have a go.

    Looks like there really is some danger of a Boris comeback. Unfortunately, familiarity is an asset for a PM's profile, even if they've been terrible. I suspect some Tories believe he is their best chance at general election compared to the lesser known candidates. :dry:

    Why the UK can't easily call a general election to replace Liz Truss
