A good 5'8" from me. Has to go down as the worst Tory PM in British political history. Not all her fault, how the hell could they elect a remainer to handle Brexit !? THAT is why it's so buggered. Had to be leavers only in that leadership vote. Common sense, so it is.🌽

Sometimes Emanuel taller sometimes Theresa taller when Theresa don't wear her 5 or 6 cm heeled shoes. Both are 173cm(5ft8).

rob , are infavor or Brexit or not ?
Editor Rob


If I voted for it (I may or may not), I wouldn't be happy with how it is playing out. I don't think either side would!

As for Theresa, I think it is arguable that she could have went from 173 range to 172.

@rob

Why does she have a page and Angela Merkel doesn't?
Editor Rob
Sitting in the basket with Berlusconi and other people just never given a page.

She can be weakly 173 cm (172.7cm)

Theresa May is 173cm 5ft8 she probably become solid 180cm range with heels.

Some people, especially women, are long limbed but short in the body so they're not as tall as you'd think. I think she's one of those people. Maybe a morning height of just over 5ft 8in but I put her at 172cm, just less than 5ft 7.75in.

Rob, could you please add Jacob Rees Mogg?


I think by now he's become notorious enough to be granted a page here. I'd start him at a conservative 6ft2ΒΌ although I'm positive most think he's at least 6ft3
Editor Rob
6ft 3 seems too high for him, my thought is around 6ft 2 though I could see how 6ft 2 and change is arguable for him.

173 cm is not look laughable for her in her photos

@ Sandy Cowell - Absolutely! And my comment on this page headed the "Comments Page" too on the 1st May, May Day!

I can't see that Theresa May is nearly 5'8", 5'7.5" may be fair though!

Ha ha ha! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jun/18
@ Nik - He he he! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Fancy noticing that you commented on Theresa MAY on MAY DAY! Very funny!

Theresa gets 5ft7.5 today.

She looks extra extra elegant and charismatic side Merkel. 172.4 cm
Nik said on 3/May/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Yes, I did, but I ain't top now! This is my first comment today at 21:49!

It was great to be top of the "Latest Comments Page" on the 1st May, and to comment on Theresa May on May Day too!

I have seen quotes of 5'6" on-line for Mrs May, but our Rob is much nearer the mark, no wonder the press want to hear from him! However I am inclined to offer her 5'7.25" - 5'7.5", however 5'7" flat does sometimes look liable though!

Blow me down with a feather duster!

@ Nik - Isn't that enough? Look who's made it to the top the 'Latest Comments' today then...
YOU HAVE! (I will also give her 5ft7.5!)

@ Gladstone Screwer - Was she really married to Woody Allen? Well blow me down!
Nik said on 1/May/18
She is possibly 5'7.5", no more!
Marion said on 30/Apr/18
Theresa May , elegant lady, wonderful height.
Very slender,
Hard working woman. ( I am not a Tory )
FRED said on 4/Jan/18
Teresa walks like she has bad knees or bad feet.
She's definitely no smaller than 5ft8 and always looks taller and is probably 5ft10 or 5ft11 in various heels.
Wellydancer said on 1/Oct/17
She looks about 6'4''!
Her arms are so long and trousers too short!
You'd think that she could afford have a few outfits made that actually fit her limbs.
If David Cameron could gift vast sums of money to his wife Samantha's hairdresser and stylist surely Theresa could buy herself a suit or two.
Gladstone Screwer said on 21/Sep/17
I'm going with 5'8", would be taller but for her alarming posture. Could even be scoliosis ? Who knew she was married to Woody Allen ?
Perfectly ghastly couple, to be fair.
Lorraine ormrod said on 1/Sep/17
I wish teresa may wouldnt stoop. Its not a good look.
HonestSlovene said on 8/Aug/17
Looks around 5'7.5" and her husband 5'8.5". Well she said he has barely made the height cut off for her do date him but I generally agree that height isn't the most important factor however being tall definitely does help at least a bit in terms of dating.
Phil said on 24/Jun/17
@ Nik
yes, her husband looks an inch taller than her. many tall women don't discriminate against 5 foot 8 men.
5 foot 8 big rob's wife or girlfriend jenny is also pretty tall.
Nik said on 10/Jun/17
I would say she is about 5'7" and her husband about 5'8"! I have seen her on the television and in newspapers and I struggle to see her near 5'8". I agree with Max in that I see her being 5'7.25" at tops.
I wish her the best in her new term as prime minister! I am not saying whether I voted for her or not!
Max said on 8/Jun/17
No more than 5ft 7.25
Nik said on 31/May/17
@ Rhonda

I cannot see that she is 5'9"! Maybe 5'7" - 5'7.5" for me.
Amy said on 29/May/17
I'd say she's around my height, I'm somewhere between 172-3. I'm still growing however.
Nik said on 6/May/17
Rob's quote of 5'7.75" seems about right!
Rhonda said on 5/May/17
She wears a very small heel 2 inch but she is very tall for a woman, I would say 5ft 9.
Phil said on 23/Mar/17
Cazeneuve is shorter than 5 foot 5 or 5 foot 4 Angela Merkel.
5 foot 3 for Cazeneuve.
Phil said on 23/Mar/17
Cazeneuve must be 5 foot 4.
Galathea said on 15/Mar/17
I suppose solid 5'8" or 5'9" (1,73–4 m). Look at her here with France defense minister Cazeneuve, who is officially 1,65 m:

Well, she's quite a big girl, isn't she?
I know someone with the hots for her! He was pleasantly surprised! πŸ’˜πŸ˜™
Phil said on 17/Jan/17
She reminds me of a bird. She is a weak 5 foot 8 woman. 5 foot 7.75 is possible.
Sarah said on 12/Jan/17
5'8"
littlesue said on 22/Oct/16
A lot of taller older women tend to stoop. Her height very tall back in the early 70's when she would have been a young woman so maybe a bit height conscious.
Rory said on 20/Oct/16
She has awful posture though, she always seems to stoop.
Phil said on 15/Oct/16
Theresa May looks like a tall lady. 5 foot 8
littlesue said on 13/Oct/16
What do you think Sturgeon is?? I read she is 5ft 3 and does look this next to other leaders but everyone always refer her as a midget?? is it you think because she looks like Jimmy Krankie they think she as small as Jimmy Krankie who would officially be a 'midget'
Editor Rob: 5ft 3 is a decent enough shout, I'm not sure I've heard her ever give a height though.
TD said on 5/Sep/16
I guessed about 5ft 7.5 So this seems a fair listing.
heelshealheight said on 29/Jul/16
Thanks for the info, Rob. Agree with you. At Bute House (Edinburgh), May towers (almost a head) over Sturgeon. May is wearing 'kitten' heels (even less) and Sturgeon is wearing those insanely high heels she usually wears; May continues to be far taller than Sturgeon, nonetheless. Sturgeon must be no more than 4ft8 (5ft max and generously estimated) barefoot. That said, Salmond is no way more than 5ft6.
littlesue said on 17/Jul/16
I just read in a woman's magazine that she was 5ft 10 but seeing her next to Nicola Sturgeon I would have said more around the 5ft 8 mark
Flyin said on 15/Jul/16
Met her in 97, she was an inch taller heels before I grew the 1.75, I would say 5'8 definitely.
SharpshooterTom said on 15/Jul/16
Rob, she turns 60 later this year, reckon she had a taller peak height, topping 5'8?
Editor Rob: yes it is possible at near 60 for a half inch
Amaze said on 14/Jul/16
Tall woman. Shes going to be 60 this year. Maybe she was 173cm or 174cm in her prime? Solid strong 5 ft 8 ?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/16
Nice...was about to ask about her.


Maybe a full 5ft8 in her prime Rob?
SAK said on 14/Jul/16
She looks like a tall woman.
Sam2 said on 14/Jul/16
It said the the Telegraph she's 5 ft 6. What do you think of that Rob?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have guessed her that low.
