Monumental waste of time and resources

… 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.

    I would remind you of Jean d’Arc…

      … who is my heroine in certain of my books. Huge fan of Jeanne la Pucelle. There are obviously always exceptions.

      But she was a devout girl, not one of these up there now. Jeanne was not going for the “look at me, I’m the big leader, respect me”. She saw something wrong and tried to change it.

      Think you mean Boadicea – I don’t use the PC correct spelling they force on children today along with Islam.

      She’s not a good example – poor leader, vicious and violent, easily defeated in the end. Had tantrums, was treacherous.

    Just out of interest I searched ‘good female leaders from the past”. This is someone’s idea of those fitting the bill.
    Dear oh dear!
