Every May Merrick Cockell finds some spurious reason to persuade colleagues none are capable of replacing him.
Last year he had the gall to tell them that he had wanted to step down, but the 'other Prime Minister' had expressly forbade him, saying he needed Pooter to cement the ill fated Triborough fiasco….. You could not make it up!
The sad part is colleagues actually believed the other beleaguered PM would have the time or inclination to lobby Pooter!
|PRIME MINISTER INTO THE SUNSET|
This time around it seems even Pooter knows he can't go on taking £140,000 a year from the tax payer and not turn up for work.
If the rumour mill is correct in May he will go.
This will be the moment for the Conservative Group to never ever allow one man to stay in post for fourteen years.
It will also be the moment to substantially reduce the £70,000 a year Leader's Allowance.
The fact that Cockell managed to strong arm colleagues into allowing him to collect this whilst absent from office is a thing of shame.
