Red Box III

I’m enjoying this, as Mrs Thatcher famously remarked.
Some more appearances in Times columnist Matt Chorley’s daily newsletter.
Who has had the worst start to 2019 in British politics?
British democracy. (How else could you describe a parliament in revolt against its own electorate?)
Who's your political heroine?
Helen Suzman - for so many years a single parliamentary light shining in the darkness of apartheid.
How has Theresa May handled the negotiations?
She has clearly modelled her approach on Nick Chopper, the Tin Woodman of Oz, who, having carelessly cut off all his own limbs and replaced them with inflexible parts, then got very wet and became too rusty to move.
