Hung Parliaments

I believe TM is a dead woman walking and another election will take place in due course.

Petitions cannot stop the government legally seeking support from other parties.

If an election does not take place, I believe that there will be calls for her to step down, and another leader will be appointed. I suspect it will not be B Johnson. Other than that, I would not like to guess.

True, but then again such petitions are the only way for the people of this country to register their protest.

Do on-line petitions make a difference?

I acknowledge petitions do let the government know how the people feel about certain matters, but as the figures demonstrate most are ignored. Crying or Very sad

I know, what you say is true, but I had to sign the anti-DUP/Conservative coalition one for the sake of my conscience. I can at least say that I protested against the Tories getting into bed with anti-homosexuals even if that protest makes no difference.

I hope it is him, I think he'll cause even more damage to the Tories than May has done so far. He's got away with being the "amiable buffoon" for too long when underneath it all he's as cold and calculating as the most evil Tories....

I understand!

I always try to focus on the things I feel I can influence, this has not always been the case and I have made myself very stressed at times.  You will probably know about the circles of influence http://uthscsa.edu/gme/documents/Circles.pdf

It is difficult to follow this rule religiously, but when under pressure I try very hard to do so!
