We hear things retrospectively when we have understood them - Marcel Proust
I saw on PMQs today Cameron telling Corbyn he should go, strange thing to say from a man who resigned but hasn't gone and wont be for awhile.Of course we always had a deputy PM for such emergency moments in the past but for some reason that role has been passed over this time, with Boris not in a hurry to take over, if he should, and no desire anywhere to get on with Brexit we are left with that phrase that has suited so many of these situations over the years.......From Tancredi in Lampedusas 'The Leopard'"For things to remain the same,everything must change"it was forever thus.
Perhaps he is using the Stairlift To Heaven?
I am beginning to think there is a conspiracy going on between our fractional political elites to kick the referendum result into the long grass with all this petty party politicking going on.Whilst us mere "proles" have spoken it appears our Masters are only paying lip service to our decision - if even that?Instead they seem to be more interested in protecting/re-arranging their respective positions at the Westminster trough. It's about time Her Maj step in to bang a few heads together and get Article 50 invoked asap. As until that actual action is undertaken we're being shafted once again. Whilst they are still enjoying the perks of a very cushy number with very few (if any) responsibilities.
That picture - and indeed all pictures and video clips of the poor man these days - reminds me of that judgement about Enoch Powell: "driven mad by the remorselessness of his own logic".I think it quite likely that Corbyn has a severe form of Aspergers. He seems to have no means of determining other people's mental states, and protects himself against the resultant social embarrassment by a relentless grip upon political certainty. No self-doubt, no politician's ability to dissemble or equivocate. No shades of grey, excepting of course the hair and beard...
Wiggia - I'm sure you are right about Boris. He doesn't want the poisoned chalice.Demetrius - will he get through the pearly gates though?Bill - I'm sure you are right, their main interest is who to saddle with the issue and how to kick it into the long grass afterwards.Sam - that's how I see him too. For some reason he needs political certainty and isn't about to let it go merely because something as puny as reality has intervened.
