The C word I mean isn’t cricket but it’s important to recognise the ego and incompetence of the man in charge of the country’s health during Covid.
Women may not face legal exclusion from governing in this country, but a misogynistic culture at Number 10 stopped the small number there from being heard. Had women of the caliber of Helen MacNamara (Deputy Cabinet Secretary in the Cabinet Office from 2020 to 2021) been in government or just listened to, thousands of lives could have been saved. Instead, you had a government of public school boys whose entitled arrogance was only matched by their ignorance of the real world in which their subjects – no, I mean constituents lived.
Dominic Cummings dismissing Helen MacNamara, “I don’t care how it’s done, but that woman must be out of our hair – we cannot keep dealing with this horrific meltdown of the British state while dodging stilettos from that c***” tells you everything you need to know about him, about ministers who were as bad in different ways and why over 230,000 UK citizens died from Covid.

Our Political Parties need to widen the gene pool from whom they choose their ministers and everyone needs learn to mistrust charisma and choose serious leaders instead.
