For Theresa May 10 Downing Street has become a death cell. Although no date has been set for her execution, there can be no appeal. What other verdict could there be?
She has already entered the record books. The worst election campaign ever, the worst-ever Conservative Party leader, the worst-ever Tory Prime Minister: a tie, perhaps with Rosebery, for the worst PM from any party since 1832 (excluding Bonar Law, who was dying by the time he took office). This was the Tory leader who brought a Bennite Marxist fossil from the margins of politics to the gates of Downing Street. No one has crammed so much incompetence into a mere 12 months as May.
