Where are the dark horses?
Undignified in the extreme not to say treacherous in some cases, it has been and still is a perfect example of all that is worst in British politics.
Nothing is as it seems. No-one is as they (formerly) appeared. Who to trust?
I name no names. We have surely had as much of that as we can take, but it seems to me that no single individual of any political complexion has come out of this debacle looking clean and promising.
What we need now is a dark horse, a secret runner, in short God.
Time to turn over the tables in the temples, throw out the wicked and the weird and allow space for a decent honest well-balanced human being to emerge from the shadows,
Someone who has brains, business acumen, debating skills and a clear view of our future in his/her sights.
But, back in the real world, since only the membership of the two main parties may vote for their choice of leader the rest of us are doomed to sit and wait with fear and apprehension and not a great deal of optimism, to see what our confused brothers and sisters deem suitable for our needs.
Yes OK so I'm playing devil's advocate but also praying for common-sense to prevail.
Let's hope choices are made soon and with at least a modicum of intelligence, and God help us all.
