Theresa May is a broken, shambolic figure this morning. It looks like she may try to limp on in a ‘confidence and supply’ arrangement with the Democratic Unionists – to the dismay of huge numbers of Northern Irish people:

But don’t forget that Theresa May’s diminished figure still has a huge shadow hanging over it as another consequence of her negative, despicable campaign:
The threat of a criminal investigation by the North Yorkshire and Metropolitan police services for what appeared to be a clear breach of electoral law when she lied outright on BBC Question Time‘s leaders’ special, claiming that Ms Abbott wanted to remove the DNA records of ‘criminals and terrorists’ from police databases.
Telling a deliberate lie about a candidate during an election campaign is a criminal breach of the Representation of the People Act 1983 – and if Theresa May is charged and found guilty of the breach, she could face at least the loss of her Parliamentary seat and a ban from political office.
May’s June could be going from bad to worse very quickly – and for the good of the country she should step down now.
