March in London People's Assembly Against Austerity

Yep a groundswell of protest after the re-election of Theresa May and her band of no hopers.  The country had a perfect chance to vote goodbye to the Tories and the nasty vindictiveness of austerity. But not enough people wanted to vote for change so we got change in the form of a weak Government propped up by the DUP. And another billion and a half on the national debt, so much for an NHS magic money tree not available to give our over worked and under paid nurses a pay rise. Still so long as we have a coalition of chaos the Tories can keep milking the system and the richest can keep getting richer. The rest of us can tighten our belts another notch and head on down to the food bank.
Brexit is still a farce, Theresa May has drawn red lines in a pretty pattern and the negotiations cannot cross those lines. The trouble is that Europe knows she is a dead duck PM and will not negotiate with her and she knows that they know. Which is going to make things difficult if not impossible until we go back to the poll's go another election. Even if the Conservatives elect another leader he or she will be in the same boat the EU are holding all of the aces until we get a proper government.
So the Tories need both a new leader and to win a thundering majority. I can only see one out of the two happening, if the choose the wrong leader they may not get a chance at getting back into shape before 2030, Gove and Johnson are no the unelectable and I don't see anyone else actually wanting the job, at the moment it is a poison chalice. I know someone has to take it but they stand no chance of actually becoming Prime Minister.
