She made a post election speech ignoring the fact that her objectives in calling the election had failed
She made a deal with the DUP without consulting the Cabinet
Then she announced that she expected a 5 year term for her new tiny minority Government with an unstable partner
Was Junckers clinically correct to call her 'deranged'?

Given Juncker is not even elected by the people ?? it is a bit rich,

The alternative of Dianne Abbott as home secretary and Corbyn destroying the economy is just too much to think about,,

Shure the Queen is not elected either
But May had to call on her premises to ask her permission to form a Government

Corbyn dropped Abbott - she has diabetes apparently, as has May.

It does seem a distinct possibility.

There has to be some explanation for it, seems plausible enough.

He'd know being completely deranged himself

Is 'mentally ill' the new catch-all liberal trope? Equally applicable to uncomfortably Islamist terrorists and politicians who do things you don't agree with.

Once upon a time political opponents were simply misguided, then they became stupid or cruel. Now they're mentally ill. Quite an escalation.

She's just seen her career options contract drastically - when the Tories get their boots on, she'll be swinging from a tall tree {politically} Then this nonsense will stop, to be replaced by other nonsense..

Well no, its her lack of ability to connect with reality that concerns me and many others
The whole concept of a 'hard brexit' was seen as economic suicide by everyone who understood the consequences
She opposed leaving the EU initially but changed her mind when the referendum went the other way
She just doesn't seem to have any grip on reality at all

But it wouldnt be that unusual if it were true. Churchill was a bi polar alcoholic.

People have different interpretations of reality, that doesn't make them mentally ill.

Economics is not a hard science, you're just identifying people who you agreed with as ones who 'understood the consequences'.

When confronted with evidence of the will of the people, she changed her mind - is that really so outrageous?

Wind in the hyperbole!
