Now that she has again postponed Parliament’s meaningful vote on her Brexit deal, Theresa May has nothing much to do but twiddle her thumbs – at least that’s the impression she’s giving by carrying out stunts like this excruciating game of pool with the Italian PM. The man himself, Giuseppe Conte, shared a clip of the encounter.

I’d say she should stick with the day job, but she probably shouldn’t.
Today in Theresa May’s Neverending Anxiety Dream Of A Premiership: playing pool! apparently for the first time and unexpectedly! in front of several cameras! with Gavin Barwell desperately trying to help! https://t.co/BkGwKNwXqB

They say being good at pool is a sign of a misspent youth, but so – arguably – is bringing a country to ruin, so it’s all a bit swings and roundabouts. These people decided not to give Theresa May a break.
Good morning, just over a month to Brexit & Theresa May is learning to play pool, no I longer understand what is going on either

News that Theresa May is bad at pool comes to no surprise to anyone who notices she’s SCREWED negotiations and is SNOOKERED unless on CUE she POCKETS a better deal to CUSHION Brexit before taking a REST I’m running out of puns here

That video of Theresa May playing pool cuts off too soon, you don’t see her actual shot where she miss-cues, pockets the white, rips the baize, stumbles on to the table causing it to topple over on to a passing child before screaming “IT’S THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE” in to its face

She actually cannot do anything. We are becoming a global laughing stock. https://t.co/UfXYZTCFM4

IDEA: Brexit to be delayed until Theresa May can clear a pool table at one visit. #TheresaMay

Theresa May is embarrassing when playing pool, very embarrassing when dancing and incredibly embarrassing when being the Prime Minister

You want to get a deal with the EU? He pulls a pool cue, you pull out the darts. He gives you a set of dominoes, you get out the cribbage board. That’s the pub games way, that’s how you get an EU deal. Do you want this deal? https://t.co/9pU08sZnlA

The game is said to have lasted several years, with no discernable outcome in sight… https://t.co/0t7ZY6SOSP

Watching Theresa May trying to play pool is almost as disturbing as watching Zak Goldsmith sipping a pint, David Cameron hitting a shuttlecock and George Osborne standing!

I’m guessing that this vicar’s daughter didn’t spend her formative years in pubs and/or pool halls. pic.twitter.com/8hDkoodWxC

On the other hand, it seems that the PM who never was, Ed Miliband, could show her a thing or two on the baize.

Why, oh why, did he eat that bacon sandwich?
