Although Tory leadership hopeful, Penny Mordaunt, had to drop out of the contest at the 11th hour because she didn’t have the requisite 100 backers to qualify, I thought it only fair to post this video, which I made before the announcement by the 1922 Committee on Monday 24 October 2022.
A sensitive Piscean and 3/5 splenic Projector from an ordinary middle class family, Penny to me is a bit of an outsider as far as the Tory Party is concerned.
In my opinion, her helpful nature, desire to serve and particular skillset are not cut out for the cut and thrust of party politics.
In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if she quits at the next election and goes back into the third sector, which is where she originally began her journey as a humanitarian and social justice campaigner.
Nonetheless, I think she still has a role to play as a thought-leader and adviser for UK politicians because of her unique ability to identify problems and point out the missing pieces of any puzzle – something we could glimpses of during her Tedx talk a few years back.
