Hopelessly Hapless; Haplessly Hopeless

Those are words that I have never heard applied to a British Prime Minister.

In fact, I haven't yet heard them applied just now either.

In further fact, I just thought up those couplets.

But, in spite of their youthful exuberance, I think their time has come; and here is why.

Non respective to party, and equally non respective to specific policies, the British Parliamentary System has always acted as a white-hot forge producing fire-hardened leaders.

Dating back to Walpole, that has always been the truth of things British.

Somehow Liz Truss missed that process.
