Prime Minister Material?

by Les May
A LABOUR voting friend today told me that Corbyn 'did not look like a prime minister'.  But does he act like one?


Yesterday Ajazeera's London correspondent said Andrea Leadsom 'hadn't got the bottle' to make a prime minister.  He was referring to the fact that she had responded badly to a less than favourable article in The Times.  Being unruffled by bad press goes with the territory if you are a prime minister.


Corbyn has shown himself to be completely unruffled by the adverse publicity which followed the mass resignations from the shadow cabinet.  How Leadsom must envy this quality.


Those who plotted this coup, (if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck, so lets not quibble about my use of the word 'coup'), relied upon him resigning from the leadership to make it a success.  Clever eh? And they think they are fit to run a country.
