    Who we are, our beliefs affect our decisions, politics etc ... if you are from a privileged background your outlook is different from someone who came from a working class, your politics/cause would be affected... if you came from a big family grew up with lots of brothers and sisters, then your outlook and priorities would be different... same if you had children or not, I think she cares for the economic progress of the country in her own way, and wants to make GB great economically, but I think she doesn't give a tulip for social justice, the elderly or the children at schools.. and yes I think this is because she is childless

    Andrea Leadsom has come under fire from senior Conservatives over the "vile", "insulting" and "wrong" suggestion that being a mother meant she had a "a very real stake" in the future of our country – as she talked about Theresa May's "really sad" lack of children.
    At the time I didn't agree with Andrea Leadsom, but on hindsight after I saw May's manifesto and policies, yes I agree with her, May does not have a very real stake in the future of our country !!

    So she calls a GE because she feels like a fraud running the country when no one voted for her (that was the reason for the GE btw)

    She then ends up with a majority with a coalition with the DUP.

    So she called a GE and now has a majority.....

    Not a 30 yard screamer I'll admit but they all count.

    With a party in a country where they voted to Remain....and have a vested interest in not having a hard border with an EU country.

    It's quite comical. It's a if CUK would be rejoicing at a Labour/SNP/Sinn Fein coalition.

    She's speaking as if she'd just won a huge majority.

    Mad as a box of frogs.

    It might also be worth noting that NI Unionists voted for Brexit and NI Nationalists voted Remain.
