Armstrong is Craig’s last fan

I want some of what John Armstrong is smoking: Being foolish does not prove you are a fool

Craig may have been foolish in seeking MacGregor’s affections. But he is no fool.

Craig undoubtedly possesses a ruthless streak. He has simply transferred it from the world of business to the world of politics.

Anyone who doubts that assessment need look no further than the mega-strife which is destroying his party.

When it comes to fools, those denigrating Craig’s performance in the face of extreme adversity over the past week or so are the ones in more danger of finding themselves wearing the funny three-pointed hat with bells on it than he is.

The attempt by an overwhelming majority of members of the party’s governing board to wrest control of the party from its founder has been a spectacular failure so far.

Craig has made a nonsense of his enemies’ pigeonholing of him as a political neophyte.

The supposed lightweight has (so far) outmanoeuvred and outboxed his opponents all the way from here till kingdom come.

His opponents? Outmanoeuvred and outboxed? John, what planet are you on? Later that day: New Conservative board suspends Craig. No doubt Armstrong will see this as further evidence of Craig’s pugilistic prowess.

    Read the article. I would say I found it amusing but that probably wasn’t the reaction Armstrong wanted…..?

    Is there now proof Craig was “seeking McGregor’s affections”?

    Let’s hope that at future elections the voting public pay a bit more attention to the proven track record of political candidates and political parties?

    Words and ‘spin-doctored’ policies, in my view, are cheap – even if those saying them are spending million$ of their own money so doing?

    When they try to call us the Loony Left I would say just fire back at them
    “At least we are not the Ridiculous Right”
    If anything I think they are more the downhillers than the right and we are more the uphillers than the left.
    They are always trying to cost down the hills doing things with out havering to put in much effort or work and knock everyone out of their way.
    We are always trying to get up the hill and helping as many as we can to get up there with us and are not afraid to put in the work.
