Mrs May has made this summer quite extraordinary. Her gamble failed, she has not been able to come to terms with its consequences.
Today's opening of Parliament is a sham as she has no mandate to govern.
I feel very sorry for the Queen as she is expected to fulfil her traditional role in the state opening of parliament.
Many of the trappings of state have been dispensed with...and who could blame her.....it's very hot in London...does Mrs May really want them all to assemble for what is obviously going to be a very short term solution to the problem she is responsible for.
Our Prime minister has focussed on just the one thing....Brexit.
She clearly believes she is the only person who can deal with this problem....getting us out of the EU with as much kudos as possible.
Brexit has taken over the mind and the practical common sense of our PM.
Everything else has been sacrificed for this one effort.
She won the job as PM last summer after Cameron resigned....she looked like a capable woman who could deal with its complexities.
And then common sense deserted her.
I can't imagine her mind set now, the determination to go on with little or no back up in parliament The MPs who are supporting her , Boris, Gove etc are keeping a sinking ship afloat because it suits them...not because it's the right thing to do.
The DUP issued a request for some respect last night. They have clearly been taken for granted...
It's very depressing. And it's all Mays fault! She didn't have to call an election. Europe and indeed the rest of the world must be enjoying this story as it unfolds....but we are not.
I think most of us now would welcome her resignation . Providing Gove didn't step forward again....
It would make a good script for a play. I'm sure one is being written right now, the only thing in doubt is the last act and who will remain on the stage to take the final bow!
