A LIGHTHEARTED LOOK AT A LIVING, BREATHING LEG END

How does that work again?

Mrs Merkel may be able to soldier on at the head of a difficult coalition, but she has lost substantial authority for her EU policies.

Oh dear, Mr Redwood,
OK, to start off with Angela Merkel has a PhD. And she’s German. So she isn’t “Mrs Merkel”. My best guess at her title is Frau Doktor Merkel. (Ed will correct me, I’m sure, if I got that wrong.)
I can’t help thinking that, although it’s a small point, it would probably help international relations a little if Brits didn’t always assume that their way of doing things was the only way.

Secondly, you may be forgetting that, like the Germans, the Brits just had a General Election.
Unlike the Germans, it was one held by choice rather than legal necessity.
And, as I recall, Mrs May has managed to soldier on at the head of a difficult uneasy coalition with a hard Christian fundamentalist party, thanks to a large wodge of taxpayers money harvested from this elusive magic money tree which could not be persuaded, only weeks before, to fruit for nurses.
Of course, Mrs May’s policies on Europe have to some extent been saved by the fundamentalists (as long as no one refers to anything having happened any more than 6,000 years ago, anything gay, or any kind of abortion plans), but as her policies on Europe have been limited to: “Brexit means Brexit”; “Brexit will be red, white and blue” and “No deal is better than a bad deal”, I’m not sure that that is of any great matter.

Mrs May never really had much in the way of authority, having been the “best of a terrible bunch” candidate when Cameron broke another of his promises and stepped down.
She became a figure of fun during the subsequent unnecessary and disastrous election campaign (which she had promised not to have), playing, in closed factories, to houses little bigger than the crowd that failed to turn up to see her speech in New York, and having doors slammed in her face.
However, since she lost the election she has become an international figure of ridicule. The phrase “strong and stable” will never have quite the same meaning again.
Most leaders have ups and downs. Mrs May only seems to have missed out entirely on the ups, but then you’d really be stretching things to call her a “leader”.

PEOPLE IN SCOTLAND POSITIVE ABOUT ANGELA MERKEL AND NICOLA STURGEON…

…AS FOR THE REST, AYE, WELL

If you thought Paul Nutt-All, of the Kippers’ party, was pretty unpopular (what with MPs and AMs leaving his party in England and in Wales), then what about the┬áOrange Faced Muppet in the Gold House? He has to hope that bombing Syria has boosted his popularity with ordinary people as much as it has with some of the Tories.

At the other end of the scale, you’ve got two leaders with positive overall results.

So congratulations, Nicola and Angela. Two people worthy of the word ‘leader’.

I was amused that Davis and Farron scored large numbers of people who either didn’t know who they were or didn’t care. It’s a pity that one of these nonentities is supposed to be arranging to drag Scotland out of Europe.

And poor old Boris, he rates only just above Nutty and Tan-Man.

Probably embarrassing for Tessy that she rates below her Scottish gofer,┬ábut Kez will be happy that she’s streets ahead of her hated boss.

I don’t suppose anyone thought it worthwhile finding out what people thought of Fluffy.

And then there’s Hammond.

Sigh.
