When Theresa May yesterday asked Tory MP’s to trust her to guide them out of the mess they’re now in, her nonsense reminded me of Will Rogers (1879-1935), who once asked “If stupidity got us into this mess why can’t it get us out of it?”
Can you imagine a bottom of the league football manager getting away with such an excuse, or an MD who had presided over an unprofitable set of results successfully appealing to the shareholders that “I got you into this mess, which makes me well qualified to lead you out of it”?
No…failure invariably means getting the sack.
Only Houdini, could wrestle success from the jaws of failure, and Theresa is no Houdini.
Einstein once defined the difference between genius and stupidity. He said that genius knows its limits.
Unfortunately for her, Mrs May doesn’t.
