… plus people’s hopes.
Really, really sorry to have to say this but needs must. You really must not have a woman in charge when it starts getting critical:
Many people were putting much store on this one below and sure enough, under pressure, she folded and had a personal crisis, just like Andrea Leadsom [remember?] or Louise Mensch or Diane James and so on.
Now look, woman, you backstabbed your way in a bitter dispute into the ‘leadership’ because you wanted the title Leader. OK, you achieved your goal – that was it right there. The rest of it – actually having a plan and the hide of a rhinoceros in implementing it, a la Donald – you did not have that.
Therefore, love, you are a waste of space and have let down conservatism at precisely the moment Merkel needed a rival.
As for this one – you should have seen the comments, even from conservatives:
And so we come to Marine and I wish her all the best, as do many of us but there is just this sneaking suspicion … well, not yet, not yet.
Women are unbeatable on things they’re unbeatable on, they are without peer – the nurturing, the constant humanitarian angle, the atmosphere they bring, the way they put a man’s house in order [and I do not mean the domestic residence]. Women are vital, fundamental in those roles. Behind every successful man etc.
But never as the leader of a major organization, if only for monthly issues, before getting on to all the rest. Now you can come in blazing on that all you like – I know what I see.
I’m really sorry because I love women and have tried to support and boost more than one over my time in her chosen field. But I just haven’t any time or patience with this half-childlike ‘I wanna be the Bosss, I wanna be the boss, let me play’ and then, once given it, they do not have the cojones to see it through.
As mentioned – a monumental waste of times and resources … plus people’s hopes.
