Back in the Eighties, we had Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.
Between them, they ruined America and Britain.
Since when, the couples have varied. But now, both posts are VACANT.
So far this year, the North Atlantic has looked like it might next be ruled by Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn (but most likely not) – then Donald Trump and Boris Johnson – and now… …well, read on…
Bernie is still hanging on in there – but thanks to the Democrats’ dodgy candidate-electing system, nothing short of Hillary Clinton’s assassination is likely to result in his bony arse occupying the Chair in the Oval Office.
And post-Brexit, now Jerry too is hanging on by his finger-nails.
The chances of THEM both making it are now less than me being crowned Miss Universe.
Which leads us to The Donald and Bozo, two blustering clowns from New York (yes, Johnson was born in New York; he could theoretically run for US President – maybe now, he will).
But support for The Orange One has been dwindling of late – along with his campaign funds (although he gets a TON of FREE media coverage, just by TALKING). So perhaps he will just become yet another bump in Old Ma Clinton’s ARDUOUS road to the White House.
But the real shocker is what has just happened to Bozo. After looking like a dead cert for the Tory leadership contest, following Pinky’s resignation – he has been shafted by Michael Gove.
A politician who is less welcome than a fart in a spacesuit, Gove began as a Johnson PROMOTER – then came back and told Bozo he could not drum up sufficient support for him – then decided to run HIMSELF! The words “rat” and “fink” immediately spring to mind.
However, his chances of being elected by the Tory MPs are slim to non-existent.
Some politicians are just not appealing; Cleggy sold out for a mess of pottage (Wiki it) – Ed Miliband looks like a child-molester animated by Nick Park – and Michael Gove is less popular than THEM.
A likelier prospect is Theresa May. Like Maggie before her, she is a nasty piece of work (but with better legs) – and with Bozo gone, her chances look good.
Meanwhile, on the other side of The Pond, there is much talk of Elizabeth Warren joining Hillary as running-mate – however, nothing has yet been decided (it would be a bizarre move if Liz DID accept the post; she turned DOWN the opportunity of running for President, even though her numbers were BETTER than Hillary’s – and Veep is a NON-job).
So could these three women join Nicola Sturgeon (1stM of Scotland) Erna Solberg (PM of Norway) and Angela Merkel (Chancellor of Germany) as the Queens of the North Atlantic?
The word MILFs immediately springs to mind.
