    Theresa May will not last much longer as British PM, Citigroup warns clients

    28 Jun, 2017 10:02

    Clients should brace themselves for the downfall of UK Prime Minister Theresa May, as her weakened minority government is unlikely to hobble along beyond a few months, top investment bank Citigroup warns.

    Citigroup told its clients the PM is likely to resign within a matter of months after she lost the Tories their slim parliamentary majority in a snap election on June 8.

    Citigroup told its clients that May’s minority government is “unsustainable” as it leaves her open to opposition from both hard-line Brexiteers and pro-EU Remainers.

    In a note to its clients, the investment bank called into question the viability of the PM’s deal with Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

    May struck a £1 billion ($1.28 billion) deal with the socially conservative group to guarantee enough support in the Commons to get major legislation and budgets through Parliament. However, Citigroup said the deal is “not comfortable enough for crunch votes.”

    It also claimed the Conservative leader, whose popularity among voters has collapsed since the election, could face “harsh backlash in the anti-EU British media,” especially if the UK is forced to pay a €100 billion withdrawal bill.

    You can easily get agreement between a pig and a cow that wolves are bad, but they can easily fall into the trap where the pig says
    wolves should eat more beef, while the cow recommends a diet of pork.

    And unfortunately her death wasn't the end of it. The start of the Grenfell tragedy, for example, can squarely be laid at her feet.
