You might expect that from one point of view, but Italy as a whole would be pleased to see Brexit succeed as I understand it, they would also like to get out from under the thumb.
The indigenous Italians might well do so. But, as I have already said, the Italians voting in the UK Euro elections are not indigenous Italians.

Er, the article did have a note of caution

It would appear that Mrs May is about to resign.

We’d do well to be a little cautious about whether this is actually going to happen. Just saying.

We are reading that her resignation will be announced tomorrow..............

I think she's going tomorrow. This time she knows that if she doesn't jump she actually will be pushed. I have a feeling the results of this election are going to be really bad indeed for the tories.

Then it is going to be all about Boris and no deal.

This is true. Things are just about as unpredictable as it is possible to get.

I heard on the news last night that most non UK EU citizens in the UK couldn't vote because the Electoral Commission hadn't been able to get a form to them in time for them to fill in to ensure that they voted in only one EU country.

Yeah, I just read that. Additionally, it seems most UK residents living abroad but who still have the right to vote, did not get their forms either. It's been a total bloody shambles.

About time. Pretty much whatever your political views May's destined to go down as one of our worst leaders in history.

Surely she can't be followed by some creature even worse?

I still believe brexit will be thwarted, yes. But the story now focuses on Johnson - what is his policy going to be and can/will parliament stop him if he takes over the leadership committed to no deal.

All of the Tory candidates will be considered worse by at least a significant minority of the Tory party. May tried to hold together an institution that was fundamentally split down the middle, and in the end achieved nothing but three wasted years

Worse than her in terms of political capability? I doubt it. She has exhausted the brexit middle ground. Whoever takes over cannot continue her strategy, and there's a limit to what alternatives are available. I think the whole deadlocked situation is going to start unraveling now, and whoever takes over cannot just pretend it isn't happening.

Johnson has a similar relationship to truth and honesty as does Trump. If he calls a snap election he could regain a lot of support from Brexit party by calling for no deal exit. However, he will have his fingers crossed behind his back. He will do whatever is best for Johnson at any given moment.
