What is it with these politicians, of which Ms. Priti Patel now stands - just! - as a typical example of brainless stupidity? Did she really think that old 'Bruiser' Boris would allow her to go tramping all over his patch? And what did she think she would achieve with all those rich, tough, Israeli practitioners of truly real-politik? Their entire lives have been spent ducking and diving, and when necessary, fighting and killing to keep the state of Israel in being. Did she really believe that a graduate of economics from Keele 'university' would be able to play them along?
And what impeccable timing - not! Just as Mrs. May is desperate to demonstrate that she's the boss, Ms 'Pathetic' Patel offers herself up as a candidate for execution. They don't actually go in for chopping off heads these days which, in some ways is a pity, because Ms. Patel wouldn't miss hers given that there appears to be nothing in it!
