By which I mean, of course, the distinguished Editor of The Spectator, young Master Fraser Nelson - although he doesn't look quite so young these days! - who in today's Telegraph adds yet another good reason why the normally cautious Mrs. May has taken the electoral plunge. He reminds us that she is still hog-tied by Cameron's last election manifesto. By winning her own election under her own manifesto then 'with one bound she will be free'! That's the good news, the bad news is that she will be free to raise tax levels and she will probably get rid of the triple-lock pension pledge which is dearly beloved by old geezers like me!
Even so, I will console myself with the probability that the ludicrous spending of '£zillions' propping up sundry dictators round the world, including we now learn, 'Fat Boy Kim', under the pretence of so-called aid, will be ended. Grammar schools will be rammed through despite the wailings of the 'edukashun' establishment. Perhaps shareholders' rights to limit ludicrous pay rates for top execs will strengthened. Finally, and most deliciously, she will be free to trundle a guillotine into the House of Lords and chop the heads off all those free-loading fat cats.
