The Scots May be down about their footy team thrashing in Kazakhstan.

One of the few consolations is that their team still is better than the Westminster collective.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Is there anything she can't balls up?

She should have taken more time to think things through. The referendum was ADVISORY and not binding. Therefore she should have thought things through more thoroughly before ditching the idea !

Just watched May's statement.

Basically she's the only one marching in time with the band.

What an arrogant woman.

It's up there with being allowed to shoot a Welshman with a crossbow within the city walls of Chester during the hours of darkness.

The Speaker, and the Leader of the House are two separate offices.

Why's everyone blaming the speaker? TM is trying to pass basically the same bill that was rejected by MPs already and by a sizable majority. And now everybody desperately wants that same bill to go the the House so it can be passed and so are kicking off that Bercow blocked it? Honestly, this is absolutely laughable. At the least this has been a good opportunity to learn more about how the House functions for many, including our Government it seems.

May is a remainer supposedly working to achieve Brexit. If she is playing a blinder pray tell for what side?

I think TM's actual goals are a) to keep the Tory party together and b) to keep the Union intact.

As we can see above, aspects of Brexit certainly threaten Ireland/NI stability while no doubt a Scottish independence referendum would give a slightly different result were it held now.

This is why I know Brexit is important but have said there's a longer term game being played here. If TM's deal - or close variant thereof - is accepted, she may even be viewed quite positively for her handling of such a difficult situation from effectively a minority Government. As you said Roy no one else wanted the job so maybe she is playing a blinder with a poor hand, who knows?

I'll update my post to say the DUP's stance is they don't want NI being treated differently, which was option 2 I set out:

"To the DUP, the backstop represented its worst fears come to life: regulatory differences meaning only NI would continue to follow some EU rules, no time limit and the ability to exit the backstop would need to be agreed jointly by the UK and EU."
Source: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-46903876

So I think ERG object to option 1 while the DUP object to option 2. TM needs both to back her, or some Labour/Indy MPs of course, to pass a deal.

There really isn't a solution apart from staying in the EU.
