Je suis un opportuniste

A chancer is the British slang for a scheming opportunist. 
It means someone who takes advantage of a situation and manipulates others, exploiting it for their own gain.
We had in the UK a variety show Opportunity Knocks, which took unknown but talented artists and occasionally turned them into stars!
Lynne and I lived next door to one unknown, the beautiful Jean Smith. Her voice was well known to schoolchildren she worked with, and she was runner up to an eventual first round winner, and died suddenly and unexpectedly at 79.
She was an innocent, but there are other more dangerous opportunists.

Theresa May is one.
A year ago she was part of David Cameron’s cabinet, and spoke eloquently in favour of the UK remaining within Europe.
Once the vote to remain in Europe was marginally defeated (52% to 48%) she changed her shirt for a Brexit one and now shouts loudly that we should get out of Europe.

She never said “Je suis un opportuniste”
But that’s what she is,

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
