Yes, that's why May never managed to become Prime minister. People only ever support sweet, unassertive women like, say, Angela Merkel or Margaret Thatcher...oh, wait...

As usual, I learned in this thread that the only conceivable explanation for why people don't support whatever you support is because they hate some group or another. If they weren't so filled with hate they would of course support the exact same policies you do and vote for the exact same politicians you vote for.
