Head down, mouth shut, keep going…

Thanks to Pete, here’s Danny Finklestein’s soundest advice: “The only card the Prime Minister still has is incumbency. He should keep his head down, keep his mouth shut, and keep going. This will fail to work, but do so less spectacularly than anything else”. Remarkably similar to the technique favoured by Sinn Fein in times of trouble: ‘when sh*t happens, say as little as possible and carry on regardless’. Now, is it me, or does Danny’s picture look happier than it did a day or two ago?

    Given the comparison in technique you’ve noted, Mick, how about his first piece of advice..

    “1. You will be tempted to call for unity. Calls for unity never work.” ;o)
