Peculiar Political Prognostications
Saturday, 20 November 2021
Much political capital has already been creatd by "Boris Johnson' U-Turn". When will the press, and large sathwes of the UK public stop treating the Prime Minister ("first among equals") as some sort of Presidential Dictator. He is not. In the UK we do not elelct a Prime Minster, we elect MPs to represent us in Parlkiament and is the MPs of the winning pasrty wehoelelct or endorse or sack a leader - NOT the voters.
Neither does ther PM have a monopoly on policy. He may have influence, but he, too, is influenced by a whole army of opinions. Here is how Christian Wolmar oputs it in his respinse in the Guardian.
Whilst media and political focus has centred on "SCRAPPING", it it useful to see what else is contained in this botch of proposals.
As Wolmar asks, "Will it all happen?". Sooner or lkatrer some pilitician will come up with a jackpot idea to extend the proper hig speed line to Leeds, Doncaster, York andfd Newcastle. And we will all wrting our hands, shd a few tears and curse the politicians who didn't do it sooner!
