And the ugly farce that are the Tories of the years 2015-2017 continues:

(Source: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-40231107)

So Theresa May has now been officially taken hostage by her own party. Why doesn't she simply quit? Cringeworthy!

I think...she will. However there is an unofficial Tory Party ABB rule applying here (anyone but Boris). So they will be desperately trying to find someone.

Who wants to lay a good bet David Cameron has been approached to come back?

There's a report that the Scottish Tories are splitting off. Does that mean anything, or just some posturing?

It means that Scottish voters (who mostly voted last year to stay in the EU) get an assurance of meaningful influence on the Brexit negotiations. Smart move by Ruth Davidson and her team.

This. Ruth Davidson deserves more for all the work she did in Scotland and considering the DUP doesn't recognize her own relationship and life, it's completely reasonable for her part.

It may be helpful at this point to explain to our international readers that Ruth Davidson is a member of the Scottish parliament (in Edinburgh), not of the Westminster parliament, so it would require considerable ingenuity for her to challenge Theresa May directly for the post of UK Prime Minister.
