Well, after today and yesterday, I have a certain amount of respect for May. She held it together with good grace.

To think she managed it when Davis and Johnson bolted, a couple of back benchers walked out, Trump disrespected her and vocally supported Boris and not her Brexit etc. etc. and she hasn't downed tools, said sod it.. unlike Cameron who ran away at the first sign of trouble.

I think there are many politicians across the spectrum quietly praising her for holding her own.
Agreed, she has poise and dignity in situations where many men would by now have have crumbled. She stepped up to lead the country through its most difficult time when there was no-one willing or qualified to do it, and for that she has my respect and also pity.
