She should be on her way to tender her resignation to the Queen - why is she not doing so?

So who do you think would have done better? She's not got us in this fiasco on her own. Far from it.
And I ask you for the fourth time......
It's realy very simple. She's the PM! derr!
really
why do you think she should resign? perhaps you'd like to lay out your reasons?
Nobody else wants the job. She will be the scapegoat until someone rides in to "rescue us".
I’m quite glad she isn’t going yet because I would worry about who was coming after.
I don’t want to throw brickbats at Theresa May but in all honesty she has to bear huge responsibility for the Brexit fiasco.
Ruled out all sorts of Brexit options from the word go, invoked Article 50 under pressure from hardline Brexiters without a plan, called an election where all the extra Brexit votes were cast largely futilely in safe Labour seats while Remain voters in Tory seats deserted the party: result: new minority parliament where the sensible course of action would have been to work for a Brexit deal likely to command cross party support.
None of the above was easy or obvious, but it’s undoubtedly led to this.

Perhaps she knows the rules better than the OPer does?
Well , she'll soon be the 4th tory Prime Minister to be laid at the Brussells sacrificial altar
//invoked Article 50 under pressure from hardline Brexiters without a plan//

Not so. Parliament voted for it - overwhelmingly.
Yes because she brought it before Parliament ....
She had to. Gina Miller saw to that. Big mistake!!!
Naomi @1634: You lost me there: Gina Miller, no doubt the toast of the hard Brexiters tonight who say “better in than Deal” forced the govt to allow parliament to vote on the deal, but I’m talking about the Bill to invoke article 50.
Of course like I said a lot of these errors weren’t obvious at th time and parliament indeed voted to invoke article 50 like sheep, oblivious of the chaos ahead. And I don’t remember too many people here, myself included, predicting the election result. We were all either gleefully or ruefully speculating on the size of the PM’s majority.
Nonetheless they were miscalculations. and when you’re at the top of the tree that’s where the responsibility lies.
Miscalculations? Purposefully allowing the electorate and the country to be trampled on is a more accurate assessment.
//And I don’t remember too many people here, myself included, predicting the election result//

Indeed, Ichkeria. Though not me. That's not, I add, because of VE's superior wisdom or insight: before the election Rod Liddle (in the Spectator) had challenged the Tory expectations of an increased majority making the same points you make in your 16:08 post.
My question is - why are we not leaving the EU today ???? Farce, farce, farce .. !
>My question is - why are we not leaving the EU today ???? Farce, farce, farce ..
Have you asked the MPs who don't like no deal and don't like the negotiated deal and keep voting against these in the hope that the vote may be rerun, or Brexit postponed indefinitely or some new solution can be found which the EU will readily agree to.
Pity there was not all this thrashed out before the referendum ,so simple put what we know now back to the people .Who would be scared of this ?
Yes ff, I've emailed my remainer MP several times, but to date she hasn't had the courtesy to reply !!
>,so simple put what we know now back to the people

So, what would the question be that we should 'put back to the people'?
