Hi readers, it’s Emily and William here as promised, talking about politics the week after Boris Johnsons resignation. Even if we aren’t really keen on him he did do a few good things like getting everyone locked down and the covid injections. He also got Brexit through, which sounded a nightmare.
But going to those parties he went to during lockdown was rubbish, especially as he knew exactly what he was doing. Some might say they were only parties and it’s not the end of the world, which of course is true, but for us it was the fact that he wasn’t setting a good example. But at least he didn’t invade a country without any good reason like Putin.
It got us thinking about how we all probably do lots of good things in life, but maybe also some not so good things. We like the idea of giving people a second chance, but it does depend on what they’ve done.
Whoever becomes our next Prime Minster, they are bound to do something wrong at some point too, and we’ll probably hear about it as the press will be watching closely. As we write, Sunak is the front runner with only a few left in the leadership race. We don’t really mind who gets it, as long as they have strong qualities we expect in a Prime Minister.
These include listening to our people, being kind and strong, trustworthy and honest. Someone who makes promises they can keep. What is the point of being an MP if you can’t keep your promises, as we will all stop trusting them.
Whoever does win, good luck to you. Please do you best to make the right decisions, and have a good team around you.
