Thing is, he won't want to go down in history as the guy who was Prime Minister when the UK left the EU, or when Scotland left the UK. So I reckon he'd step down just before one of these events...

I think most of them are good people, but they do seem to be a bit lacking in empathy and compassion.

I think the reason some politicians try and cut taxes is because it ultimately helps the economy.

I think the media plays a part too. I can't imagine it'd be very nice to have the newspapers telling the whole country you might be a terrorist on a regular basis for years on end.
