With the Prime Minister falling short of a majority and forced into a confidence and supply arrangement with the DUP, Mr Crosby has been accused of botching the campaign.

  1. The only person to blame, is Theresa May herself. She is completely devoid of any charisma or empathy.

    She deserves everything that happened to her.
