Francis Anthony Aylmer Maude MP Why near power! Not, why not resign?
Everything he has been near or touched carries the taint of those things that are destroying Great Britain - Cambridge, Inner Temple, Morgan Stanley,Westminster Councillor, Assistant Whip, PC, the list is seemingly endless regarding his establishment contacts yet not one single actual accomplishment!
How typical of this entire Cabinet, it appears, if only there were somebody beyond this normal mode standing in the London Mayoral elections, totally unconnected from the three main parties. Then the great metropolis of London, England's Capital City, could register a protest against the ruling political non-entities and yes-men, just as Bradford West did last night!
If only Maude would resign, but that of course would be quite out of character, being a possibly human response to the foolish accident of the housewife tonight suffering 40% burns after transferring petrol from a can to jam jars (for her daughter to hoard on this Minister's advice), by the open flame of her cooker in her suburban kitchen.
