a real leader does not court popularity and consensus
In May 1940 Winston Churchill was not popular within the government, he was seen as a rebel within parliament, and not that many of the ordinary ‘men in the street’ even knew who he was. Yet Churchill knew something that even his own king wasn’t prepared to admit; Hitler and the Nazi party were the very personification of evil. There could never be a negotiated peace with Hitler’s hellish regime. England would have to go on and on fighting Germany, even though there seemed very little prospect of victory. Eventually, through sheer vision, oratory, and force of personality W.S. Churchill carried the government, parliament, the people of the United Kingdom and the World with him to victory over the evil empires of Germany and Japan.
But then, Churchill was a true leader.
The men at the top of the United Kingdom and the United States; Boris Johnson and Joe Biden, are not leaders. They are mere mouthpieces for their cabinets and special advisors, with one eye on public opinion and the other on whatever populist cause is making the headline news.
Boris is in thrall to his squeeze Carrie Symonds and her far-left extreme green views. The man who once said that wind farms ‘couldn’t pull the skin off a rice pudding’ has now committed Britain to a legally binding target of reducing carbon emissions by 78% of 1990 levels by 2035. You can tell how insane this is because Greenpeace have described it as the ‘boldest move by any world leader…..’ Boris has also caved in on everything the nutty academics from Oxford University have told him to do when it comes to the coronavirus and lockdown. The man isn’t even a paper tiger.

Come June Boris Johnson will be schmoozing with Joe Biden, another green freak who is expected to announce swinging carbon cuts for the USA at the UN Climate Change Conference in November, or maybe at the G7 summit in June. Good luck trying to drive across your state in a Tesla, and forget central air in your home. (Just check how much the price of gas has risen since Joe took office.) President Joe also showed himself to be at best a geriatric fool when he commented on the trial Of Derek Chauvin while the jury was still out. But then Joe’s history with the KKK shows that he knows all about racism.
We would have to go a long way to find a real leader today ~ unless we consider Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who leads only by example.
the Queen has lead the country and the Commonwealth for almost 70 years
