It seems that the final two candidates for the job of UK Prime Minister have now been chosen; they are Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak.
However, everything is not all rosy at Tory Party headquarters. As the final selection quite rightly is in the hands of party members, it looks as if their two favourite candidates will not be on the ballot paper, and they are asking that the names of Boris and (my choice) Penny Mordaunt be included. What would be the point of having a flutter if your two favourite runners are not at the starting line.
Many still don't know a lot about Ms Mordaunt (myself included), so this short video of her using sign language will add to whatever knowledge we do have about her. I have no idea if Ms Mordaunt is totally fluent in sign language, but good for her regardless. It's another reason why I liked her; she may have faults, but a bit of 'humanity' goes a long way in my book. I find it a shame that she's no longer in the race.
p.s. If Boris's name WAS included in the ballot, he would definitely be elected. Certain people are suddenly realising what a stupid 'historic mistake' they've made. Die-hard Marxists will say otherwise (of course).
The choice between a narcissistic dwarf and a dumb cluck is really no choice at all.ReplyDelete
Oxford graduates automatically come under fire from the left; I do hope you said the same sort of tripe about Blair.Delete
Blair was far worse.Delete
It is unlikely she has worked in area where she needed to know sign language so what she does know she has learnt purely to communicate with those who can't hear. That weighs in her favour. I don't know about Truss but I would hate for Sunak to win the ballot.ReplyDelete
Rumour has it that between Sunak and Truss; Truss will win.Delete
Further thinking and reading, really both are poor candidates. There isn't any inspiration there, and the addition of has been tosser Johnson would make no difference.Delete
She did not look fluent, you could see her thinking about her signs, but well done to her for taking the time to learn her speech in sign. I have studied BSL for 5 years, it's a complicated language to learn.ReplyDelete
I too thought she looked as if it wasn't coming easily; but I'm not surprised. Good for her anyway.Delete
In her case she was using BSL as sign supported English.Delete
Let's be honest Cro - you just fancy Penny Mordaunt. As for Truss, I would like to send a message in sign language to her. It involves using the first and second fingers in a "V" shape thrust vigorously into the air.ReplyDelete
Yorkshire Pudding would be using too much energy, I'd only use my middle finger to send a sign to Liz Truss!ReplyDelete
What a negative bunch you are! Bring Back Boris.ReplyDelete
Yes, bring him back for a public execution.Delete
Actually, my preference would be none of these, it would be Kemi - she has been a breath of fresh air in contrast to the corrupt has-beens Rishi and Liz.ReplyDelete
Politics today is like live theater. I've grown to expect the unexpected.ReplyDelete
The problem with this current change of leadership is that we know that the new PM won't be in the same class as the last one. People are only just beginning to realise that!Delete
Their scathing criticism of each other was a gift for Starmer to quote back at Boris at PMQ!ReplyDelete
T'was always thus!Delete
