In keeping with the other threads -and like may be a bit strong. However, politics in seems has for many years been a grey world with politicians wearing a party badge but all essentially droning out the same weak liberal messages. Really since conviction politicians like thatcher, foot and Benn we’ve had the dreadful major (surely an afterbirth left in Brussels steps) the repugnant Blair, the heir to Blair and his ghastly sidekick Now as Andrew Neil refers to her we have Maybot. May would be a nice next door neighbour - she’d keep her garden tidy, smile awkwardly and say good morning and remind you if you’ve forgotten to put the wheelie bin out. Her biggest sin apparently was running through a corn field. So a lot less edgy than someone whose been honoured by mass murderers, bunged the Mace across parliament and who wished he’d murdered Margeret Thatcher. However, I was rather taken by the fact that when the ridiculous third runway was announced the said politician was protesting with the public (like a human being) and actually looked interested and passionate. This was followed in parliament by an equally emotional and passionate argument with the Zombie Chris Greyling. Old style politics based on beliefs and conviction. I suspect his time is up. The bright young things don’t like socialism any more and I believe he and his bearded chum are reaching the end - he will achieve a dream of leaving the EU but the support he’ll give will be at personal cost. Which is what he’s about. Principal above politics. So when he’s gone parliament will be a lot duller. I find myself warming to John McDonnell- strange times indeed.
