'I'm here for the long term,' British Prime Minister May says

She made a bad situation worse on the steps of Downing Street on June 9th by insisting that in the face of all the evidence otherwise, nothing had changed.

"That gritty determination will, I think, make her the right leader to take our party forward into the next election".

"These are real issues that we need to be dealing with and I'm there to do it".

She is due to have a series of meetings in Tokyo on Thursday. "We have got to think about how we renew our franchise".

Mr Shapps described the election result as "disastrous" and said Mrs May can not go from that to "I'll go on forever".

He said: "I think colleagues may well be surprised by this interview last night and I think it is too early to be talking about going on and on, as Margaret Thatcher once said". You need an in-between stage'.

Gas prices spike after hurricane
West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were set to close the month down 8%, their steepest monthly loss since July 2016. Gasoline prices in the US hit two-year highs as massive floods caused by the storm forced refineries to close.

Her announcement was also met with scepticism by other Conservatives.

Party grandee Michael Heseltine, who was also sacked as a government adviser by May for rebelling over Britain's planned exit from the European Union, deadpanned: "I don't think she's got a long term".

The London Evening Standard, now edited by George Osborne, the Conservative sacked by May as finance minister when she became prime minister a year ago, described her pledge to run again as "Like the Living Dead in a second-rate horror film". "Theresa May leads a zombie government", said Jon Trickett, a senior member of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's team.

What kept her sympathetic was her children; say what you will about Cersei Lannister's scheming ways, the lady loves her children. The theory suggests Cersei will die giving birth to a baby boy in the same way her mother did when giving birth to Tyrion .

The Daily Telegraph reported former Education Secretary Nicky Morgan saying it would be hard for May to lead the party into another poll after the disastrous set of results the party achieved on June 8. Neither the public nor Tory MPs believe her fantasy of staying on till 2022.

But Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, a potential successor who was backed by May earlier in the week after a media onslaught questioning his own competence, pledged his "undivided" support and endorsed the premier's Brexit strategy. "I'm here to support her", the BBC quoted Johnson as saying during a visit to Nigeria. For now, though, far from being a battle cry for 2022, May's comments about her future are little more than a repeat of what she has said before: that she will stay in Downing Street for as long as Tory MPs want her to.

One minister said privately that the party would be concerned if May's bullishness led to a return to what it saw as an imperial governing style, when her office tried to enforce rigid discipline across the whole of government. She's ideally placed to deliver a great outcome for our country and then deliver what we all want to see, which is this exciting agenda of global Britain.
