Who can forget the moment Theresa May burst onto the world stage?
Whereupon she announced her presence with a fierce cabinet reshuffle.
Remember how she promptly committed one of the worst mistakes in British electoral history by deciding to hold a snap general election?
And then led a really bad campaign.
And got laughed at for not appearing in TV debates.
People didn’t have faith in her ability to tackle any issues, let alone Brexit.
Then she admitted the “naughtiest” thing she’d ever done, and oh God.
Actually cringing remembering this.
A sense began to build that she didn’t really stand for anything.
And in the end, the election she’d called to secure a Brexit mandate pretty much achieved the opposite.
But she pressed on regardless. This became a theme.
First up, Tory conference, where she had a coughing fit during her speech and the set collapsed around her. I had to check because I still can’t quite believe it, but this did actually happen.
Then the Brexit negotiations didn’t go...brilliantly.
And of course, it wasn’t all that long before loads of ministers resigned over the resulting deal.
Then there was a no-confidence vote, and all the broadcasters rushed to Downing Street before she’d even got to the lectern.
She survived. Again. But was still really unpopular.
And she kept bringing her deal back to the House of Commons, and it kept on being rejected.
This kept happening. Can’t even remember how many times, to be honest.
Basically, the end of her career was just Parliament telling her to bugger off, again and again.
And then she quit. The end. Farewell, Theresa May, you really were consistent.
