On Manoeuvres

So Parliament is in recess for the summer and all those MPs can go back to their constituencies and …well if you are a Tory MP it would seem plot.   The latest to let it be known that he is NOT interested in becoming the next Conservative leader if Jacob Rees-Mogg.   Mogg, yet another Eton/Oxbridge educated son of money, seems to be cornering the market in sincere intellectual detachment from the real world.  He has a quiet charm who may well appeal to the Tory voters, should they get a chance to vote on who their new leader should be – they didn’t last time.  I am not so sure about whether this appeal would last long if the great unwashed, i.e those of us who are not Conservative party members, ever get a say in who should be the next Prime Minister but hay that is British democracy for you.

The summer is supposed to be the silly season when stupid stories run and run until the adults get back from their hols  – nowadays I get the feeling that isn’t the case anymore.
