…..more the bastard child.
I’ve refrained from blogging about the scandal which is engulfing British politics of late. It seems to be without end although today’s resignation of the Speaker might be the end of the beginning. He was an ill qualified Speaker from Day One. Foisted on the House of Commons by the new, confident Labour majority and it has been downhill ever since.
You can tell things are bad when the Sunday newspapers contain authoritative sources quoting the Monarch as being “concerned”.
But worry not. The British Parliamentary system has an ability to reset itself at a General Election. When it comes it will sweep this devalued and destructive Government from office. The longer Prime Minister Brown resists an election the more severe the reaction against his position.
