    If you are the president, or prime minister, and you don't improve the lives of your constituents, the least they should be allowed to do is call you a <snip>.
    Different groups of people:

    Those who hate her because she is a woman and make threats against her. They should not be allowed to breed.

    Those who dislike her policies and use that as an excuse to attack her as a woman. Again not allowed to breed.

    Those who dislike her policies. Fine.

    Those who dislike her personality. Fine.

    I see no reason to call any politician a <snip> if they are sincerely trying to make things better

    P.S. who did Trump blame his unpopularity on?

    Isn't this the key issue. Her core constituents gave a mandate to improve their lives. She failed.

    But she was a good PM in many ways with bags of charisma but it's the management of the economy that wins elections. The working poor have seen limited to no improvement in their lives.

    Fascist Covid policies. Worse than Hong Kong.

    Now she's 'burned out'.

    No pity points from me.

    I suppose it's less funny if you're the family getting the threats.

    Seems she jumped before she was pushed

    Lovely piece of PR. Usual suspects buying it online.

    She let down the people who counted on her. Still, we'll always have her empathy.

    Anyone who inserts the word 'facist' in a discussion like this should be put in the naughty corner for two days.

    Absolute juvenile behaviour.
