Barbel Politics A Coalition ?
Sitting upon Yat Rock today a thought suddenly hit me right in the noggin.Until yesterday Gordon Brown and Steve Pope (Chairman of the Barbel Society),had a few things in common.I'll elaborate If I may,they could have more or less been two peas in a POD.
Both held positions for which they were not elected.Both have worked hard for their respective party's.They have both avoided "coups" to oust them.Steve more than Gordon I'll wager ? But they may have clung on like a stale limpet that little bit to long ?And instead of doing what's right for the greater good,they could not let go.Well until Gordon stood down yesterday with a great speech and even cold hearted Monty got a little glow in my tum.While Steve still hangs on!
Steve you must heed the words of Enoch Powell"All political lives,un-less they are cut off in midstream at a happy juncture,end in failure because that is the nature of politics and human affairs".Go and be thought of well.
May I suggest a way forward ? I suggest you contact Dave Mason and Dave Burr of the Barbel Specialist Group and form a coalition to move the Barbel world into a new dawn.You are the man who can do this !Go out to a fanfare of applause and not with a knife in your back.
But be aware,do not let those crafty sods from the Still Water Barbel Society,from Dynamite Makins try and hijack the deal.Stand firm Steve in your long held beliefs.
