Hello ,    On the afternoon of the Budget  - Wednesday  -   I for once watched
Phillip Hammond give his Budget Speech and Jeremy Corbyn give his reply ,
but what I noticed most of all was that Theresa May really looked ill at one
point . I was a little concerned that  the Budget Speeches , the many other  jobs
she has in hand , together with listening to the speeches and added to the  many
discussions internationally that she has had to be involved with in connection
with ' BREXIT ' particularly, was making her show some signs of strain. Did
anyone else have that feeling  ?  After all she has been to some extend - thrown
in at the deep end of all this as well . It is not my intention to show  any
political bias in to this post ,  It is just me showing some concern for a person who
in all honesty must have been working very hard the last few weeks to say the
least , and a person who seems to be very dedicated .     Regards       Terry .

If I were she, I really would have difficulty in finding a deputy PM that I could trust.

I have wondered for some time whether Teresa May has good enough physical health to do the job.  She is a diabetic isn't she. That may or may not be relevant. I'm also going by how she looks sometimes. Just a feeling.

She has got herself in an impossible position, hasn't she. She will go down as the PM who took us out of the EU, crashed the economy, and caused the breakup of the UK as well .
Unless she has to resign because she is ill  and let Davis or Johnson take the blame :-)

Totally irrelevant and insulting to people with diabetes.

I did say it "may or may not be relevant". Her diabetes is not the reason I suspect she may not be physically strong enough for the job. But even it were, it would not be an insult to people with diabetes. It just isn't.

So why mention the diabetes at all?

I think it is insulting.

Well, it isn't because I'm not (being insulting).  In my view she quite often looks frail and tired. Now, that in itself doesn't necessary mean anything. Some people can look frail and tired, yet still carry on in stressful positions for years. I'm agreeing with the OP's observation. I merely mentioned that she has a health issue. It could be any number of other conditions that people cope with but which may or may not hinder them. Stress often has a negative affect on any condition.

Funnily enough I expressed this speculation a week or two ago in the company of two people who suffer from diabetes. Neither appeared to be insulted. In fact it was one of them who raised the fact that May has the condition.

My husband has diabetics.   The medicine he takes stops his body using one of the B vitamins from his food.   He got very tired and weak until he started 3 monthly injections of the vitamin..

I have Diabetes and was not at all insulted. I admire Theresa  May and fully accept that people with that condition need a lot of stamina. I hope she soon gets people around her who will help.

She hasn't looked well for a long time imo . Those dark circles under her eyes could indicate an underlying health problem , kidneys for instance . No insults intended .

Just because you don't think you are being insulting, doesn't mean people may find your comment insulting.

I fail to see the relevance of her having diabetes and her ability to be PM.

True. But I refuse to feel responsible for other people who you think might be insulted.

Neither do I.

Sorry I posted in haste. What I mean is there's no reason in principle why someone with diabetes shouldn't be PM. But it might be relevant in her case if, as we have speculated, she is not as physically robust as she might be.
