Jacqui Smith Falls On Sword Before She Takes The Knife
Jacqui Smith has decided to end her ill-fated tenure of her ministerial position.
After a series of political mis-judgements, not the least of which included picking political fights that she stood little chance of winning she is off.
MP gullibility seems to be standard issue at the moment. Invariably based on a misplaced sense of Hubris Any senior politician that doesn't appreciate that pride always comes before a fall must be the most gullible of them all.
It simply isn't good enough to be able to manage a department, to be personable. It requires proactiveness, vision, imagination, astuteness, and sound judgement.
History will judge whether Ms Smith was cutting edge or not!
