She brought this all on herself, like you said. Even before calling the GE, she triggered Article 50 when she hadn't even got it clear what sort of Brexit it was to be, then painted herself in the corner with those stupid red lines.

The situation May inherited was undoubtedly difficult (but she did chose to stand for leader, so no sympathy here), but she is f*cking awful, isn't she?

From the Guardian:
May said that if she survived the vote on Wednesday, she would hold meetings with senior parliamentarians from all parties to “identify what would be required to secure the backing of the house”.

That's what she should have done after she held an unnecessary election 18 months ago and lost her majority. She basically reacted to that as if she'd got the result she wanted/expected - an increased majority - rather than with the humility the result demanded.

Today we'll see 118 Tories and 10 DUP, who only last night had no confidence in May whatsoever (they didn't even abstain, they went for the body blow of a no) perform a miraculous U turn and suddenly have confidence in her and her government. 

The sh!t show continues...
