Like most of the country, I have been following the news, and watching
in amazement and exasperation as Theresa follows fuck up with fuck up,
whilst Jeremy seemingly enhances his reputation and consolidates his
position as Everyman. Even Dave would have been there, high profile,
Sam at his side.
Headlines today. The area is crawling with volunteers, but not an
official to be seen.
Yesterday. Tons of donated supplies in the town hall, yet the doors
locked and not an official to be seen. Weekend innit mate.
WTF is wrong with Theresa? She seems to have been committing political
suicide ever since the dementia tax before the election. Why can these
people not realise that, short term, it is not doing that is important,
but being seen to be doing. Something. Anything. Why has Theresa not
been screaming at every public servant in the land? Be there. Be seen.
Be high profile.
Up here, it would be 'nae ma job, pal'.
Current BBC front page headline : Government team to bolster relief
effort. Well, yes, but only Monday to Friday, 9-5 apparently.
