    But then you could argue that for the vast majority of managers or leaders in the world. If most managers were completely honest they admit they got promoted on their technical abilities, and then a lot of it is bluffing your way through and making it look like you know what you are doing.

    Well it looks like she's really got her work cut out now as Britain slips back to the pre-Thatcher era of union dminated strikes crippling the country, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-38347283 riots in our prisons and of course our old friend Brexit. Add in the ever present terrorist threat, the economy and dealing with Trump going forward and you have to ask who would really be up to it. My personal wish is for her to get to grips with this union action, particularly the railway debacle that's making it impossible for people to go about their business, and has even cost some their jobs.

    Comparisons are made between the railways and police and other key services where strikes are prohibited. Except railways are privatised so they are no longer 'public' services and employees Ts&Cs are at the whim of a private company needing to make a profit for it's shareholders. Renationalise the railways then perhaps we can treat railways as a critical public service.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    I commuted by British Rail and remember dirty trains, not enough seats, late & cancelled services.

    Much like today you might say and probably be right.

    My point is there is no evidence to suggest that public ownership and State management would solve the problems of our rail network.

    Maybe we need a German Dictator to make the trains run on time! They were pretty bad as British Rail and seem to have got worse since being privatised!

    Actually it was an Italian dictator (Mussolini) that was reputed to have got the trains running on time but history subsequently proved that it was a myth.

    My point is simply that I thought our governments avoid interfering in the business of private companies and that business succeed or fail according to the free market. And so if the government wants to ban or limit strikes in the railways as they are a crucial public service then they shouldn't have prvatised them - and they'd be better renationalising.

    Re: Theresa May - Not up to the Job of PM?

    For a PM to publically broadcast details about a plan for future negotiations would be the most stupid thing imaginable. Everyone and his Uncle would poor over it and attempt to find holes, because that's what always happens when the not-actually-responsible-for-anything crowd always do.

    More and more daft requests would be made for more and more detail.

    Strategy comes first, the tactics for achieving these objectives will need to vary as responses and negotiations unfold.

    Anyone who then judges the performance of the PM based on her failure to broadcast such a plan must be equally if not more stupid or simply blindly prejudiced.

    Keeping her own council and making the Cabinet toe the line is exactly the sensible way to proceed.
