I don't like the woman at all, but lack of determination is not one of her weaknesses. Disregard for civil liberties, sure. High-handed, moralising and paternalistic, sure. Bad dancing, sure. But she's always been decisive.

Given that her promised cross-party talks today ruled out any budging on May's position before they even started and that the leader of the opposition wasn't invited it's hard to disagree with you. Yet viewed from Europe indecision must be the impression our political system is giving. It took our government 15 months of the 2 year negotiation period even to set out (in the form of the Chequers plan) what it actually wanted, after which it signed up to a deal it was clearly unable to ratify in its own parliament. As the person with whom the buck stops May carries responsibility for that. If she failed to realise the deal would be unacceptable then that was a serious error, and if she knew that it would fail then she's wasted months of everyone's time by not admitting that agreement couldn't be reached - we could have been where we are now more than a year ago instead of playing chicken with the deadline like this. Her failure time and time again to react to, or even to acknowledge, the difficulties looks more like paralysis than determination.

That's it - they're the same thing. A stubborn refusal to negotiate with the enemy, and so on.

Reminds me of that Rorschach quote from The Watchmen:
"No. Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise."

I've heard people quote that admiringly, and hold up this fictional sociopath who believes in torture and vigilante violence as a role model. That's the mentality that poisons so many societies - a belief that never compromising is somehow admirable.

This.

I'm tired of politicians going around thinking they know the answer to every specific foreign policy question or whatever the topic may be. It's entirely unrealistic to assume anyone can be an expert on every field that a government must deal with. For once, someone needs to take a step back and say "You know, I'm not quite sure. However, I will do the best to educate myself on the matter and surround myself with people who do know and are experts in that specific field." Personally, that's not a bad answer for a politician to give.

In the Netherlands the quote "Je kunt beter ten onder gaan met je eigen visie dan met de visie van een ander" loosely translated as "It is better to go down with your own vision than with the vision of someone else" is somewhat popular. It might have something to do with that the quote is credited to Johan Cruijff but to me the popularity of the quote in a country where "polderen" (=consensus decision making) is cultural heritage is odd. A lot of people apparantly is willing to pick their own ego by their refussal to acknowledge that they might have made a mistake in the past over the common good.

No new elections. May's government defeats no-confidence motion by 325 to 306 votes.

Spot on. Tangentally, Watchmen was the first book I read where I realised I wasn't supposed to like the protagonist. I remember finding it a really uncomfortable experience actually, the slow grudging admiration for his sheer tenacity and the occasional realisation that he is an absolute monster and there's no way you can actually trust or believe anything about his past because he is so fundamentally damaged as a person.

re reading it as an adult I was left very unsure as to whether the man he chains up and leaves to die in a fire actually was even guilty of what he thought he was. It was such a shame the film did such a bad job of translating the story.
