So from where did young Master Stephen Crabb MP suddenly appear? This young, Welsh whipper-snapper who has, apparently, been lurking in the Tory undergrowth for some time, has now suddenly started jumping up and down shouting 'Me! Me! Me!' in a bid to be considered for the leadership of the Tory party and, given the current circs, to be prime minister. To which I can only reply in my immaculate Welsh, "Nid yw eto" ('Not yet').
Mind you, he has an interesting background, about as far removed from your average Tory MP as you can get. Like me, he was brought up by a single mum but unlike me he was in dire poverty for much of his childhood. Despite everything he managed to gain a university place but unfortunately it was SoD's old alma mater, Bristol University where he studied politics - yeeees, quite! (SoD, on the other hand, studied beer and birds with occasional computer science thrown in!) Anyway, in an otherwise undistinguished political career - so far! - Master Crabb voted against gay marriage (hurrah!) but for 'Remain' (boo!)
So, an interestin' fella', young Crabb, and I suspect that in the future he will either fly to great heights - or crash and burn! Now is definitely not the time for him to become prime minister but it was a clever and ambitious ploy to throw his hat in the ring. In the meantime, I can only offer him one word of advice - buy a razor and use it! No-one trusts a fella' with a beard, particularly a scruffy, moth-eaten effort like his.
