    Will that push some on the right to UKIP though?

    May is 100% behind the Brexit cause and it looks like she's going to try to use that to lock in the votes of the right while the she uses the broader policy platform to move leftwards a bit

    I call it the "loose kindling" theory of history. Socioeconomic and Environmental factors setting the stage that the right decisions could up-end everything.

    Taking Rome again: The Crisis of the Third Century could have taken down the empire, but the likes of Aurelian and Diocletian were able to stabilize things. Then you have the Gothic War and mass invasions 100 years later and the likes of Valens and Honorious and Valentinian III totally lost control of the situation.

    My favorite from WWI is the lead general of the German Army deciding to put Lenin and his communists on a train to make sure they made it safely from Switzerland to Russia as a gambit to create a third belligerent in the war who would fight the Allies as well as the Germans. Had he not made that play, it is quite probably the moderates win the Russian Revolution and, if not fulfill their goal of creating a democratic society based on the American Constitution, at least not become the Soviet empire.

    Yup.
    After the outbreak of the February Revolution, German authorities allowed Lenin and his lieutenants to cross Germany en route from Switzerland to Sweden in a sealed railway car. Berlin hoped, correctly, that the return of the anti-war socialists to Russia would undermine the Russian war effort, which was continuing under the provisional government. Lenin called for the overthrow of the provisional government by the soviets; he was subsequently condemned as a “German agent” by the government’s leaders. In July, he was forced to flee to Finland, but his call for “peace, land, and bread” met with increasing popular support, and the Bolsheviks won a majority in the Petrograd soviet. In October, Lenin secretly returned to Petrograd, and on November 7, the Bolshevik-led Red Guards deposed the Provisional Government and proclaimed soviet rule.

    nah, I mean she could do but she doesn't have to really. There's a lot of talk about us having a new PM by the end of the day and that's theoretically possible, but more likely is the end of the week. Which is still pretty fast!

    Now is a time for Liz to play the biggest wide game ever

    Cameron turns up at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, only to be met with a footman who hands him a note saying to meet him at Hillsborough Castle

    He gets to NI only to find a message flying from the flag pole: "Nice try, schweinschtupper, I'm in Sandringham"

    He's met in Norfolk by a corgi carrying a map of the Balmoral estate

    When he reaches Aberdeenshire a Scots Guard hands him a compass, a canteen of fresh water, and a paintball rifle

    And now the hunt truly begins

    Actually, question from an ignorant American: Can the Queen veto the decision of Parliament to enact Article 50 and leave the EU? (Assuming they bite the bullet and actually do.) Does she have any power at all in regards to their decisions?

    Queen is basicly a person with their hand on an emergency break.
    She can pull that break anytime she wants, but when she does, people will take it away from her.
    Unless she has a bloody good "we're all going to die" reason for it.

    I believe Larry is a member of the Civil Service and so will remain on station. I could be wrong though!

    the cat doesn't belong to Cameron? He has to give it to the next PM when he leaves office?

    that's terrible

    He's a member of staff, and remains attached to the post like the IT guy or the cleaner. "Chief Mouser" sounds like a joke, but it's his job title

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_Mouser_to_the_Cabinet_Office
    The cats do not necessarily belong to the Prime Minister in residence and it is rare for the Chief Mouser's term of office to coincide with that of a Prime Minister.[9] The cat with the longest known tenure at Downing Street is Wilberforce, who served for eighteen years under Edward Heath, Harold Wilson, Jim Callaghan, and Margaret Thatcher.
