The following is a brief 101 on what a Prime Minister does. Who actually selects the prime Minister, remember Gordon Brown and Theresa May both assumed the office following their own Party Political process they did not lead a campaign in a General Election to qualify for the invitation by Her Majesty the Queen to form a Government.
The Bold statement that ´´56% said he would be a disaster as Prime minister´´, quoted from the BBC today , does not make any sense it is a signal that no evidence is needed or understanding of how Democracy and Government works in the British Isles is needed in the Karaoke Politics of Britain in 2017.

The role and powers of the Prime Minister
|Prepared 15th March 2011|
‘Democracy is that institutional arrangement for arriving at political decisions in which individuals acquire the power to decide by means of a competitive struggle for the people's vote’." Joseph Schumpeter, Quoted from Roy Madron , Super Competent Democracies who in turn Cites. "Participation, and Democratic Theory" by Carole Pateman. Dr. Pateman says that, Schumpeter and his followers: … set the current Anglo-American political system as our democratic ideal (with) a ‘democratic theory’ that in many respects bears a strange resemblance to the anti-democratic arguments of the last (i.e. 19th) century. No longer is democratic theory centered on the participation of ‘the people'; in the contemporary theory of democracy it is the participation of the minority elite that is crucial and the non-participation of the apathetic, ordinary man lacking in the feelings of political efficacy, that is regarded as the main bulwark against instability.´´
I highly recommend that anyone that wishes to work out the game that New Labour (neo lib Blair Rebels against Corbyn ed.2017)now plays and why should try to get hold of a Copy of Roys book, any progressive publishers out there should get in touch with Roy and do a UK edition if he is amenable.
