Title: Future Prime Minister ?
Post by: Number 6 on May 22, 2020, 01:26:24 pm
Leaders always need to show that they are made of the right stuff. With the first really lucid comment on the pandemic I have read from a politician is it possible we have a future Prime Minister in the making in Laura ?

Interesting comment here from Laura which I have no real disagreement with, but I do think it would be a much more effective message of a return to normalcy if the Government could have been seen to be on top of the crisis, rather than in a confused and faltering reaction mode where nothing ever goes to plan. I also note that the population are no longer taking the Government seriously and are now taking their own counsel on what they can and cannot do. This leaves large sections acting irresponsibly. Not a great success? Perhaps it needs Laura's leadership, abilities, insight and energies at the top now?

Being prepared to put loyalty aside and stand up for the right thing. The attribute of leaders capable of moving things forward with a sure touch.
