Courage in Adversity

For all the good you have done, for God’s sake Go!

There is political and economic chaos in the United Kingdom today after our Prime Minister, Theresa May, came to the Houses of Parliament and humiliatingly postponed a crucial vote on the exit of this country from the European Union.  Mrs. May made lots of lame excuses as to the reason she suddenly put off this key vote, but the real reason is that she knew she was going to lose, very badly.

This postponement of a vote by a Prime Minister is almost unprecedented.  It shows an appalling lack of courage, commitment, and belief on the part of the now lame-duck Mrs May.  It shows this Prime Minister as a disorganised, shallow charlatan, unworthy of her great office.

If one really believes in something then one fights one’s corner to your last breath.  You don’t cut and run leaving utter confusion and disarray in your wake.  In the House of Commons, members of parliament laughed at this pathetic woman who showed a shambolic and cowardly side to her nature, who obviously doesn’t even know the meaning of the word courage.

Courage is the determination to do something that really frightens you.  Courage is going the extra mile, telling the whole truth, and if you have to, then admitting defeat and walking away.

All good men have courage.  It’s a shame that some self-serving women don’t even recognise the concept of true and honest bravery.  Those women, like Mrs. May, should just be forgotten and left to rot in the dust.

Some say that a hero can only die once, but a coward dies many times.  And that if you hvre never been afraid, then you cannot ever be truly brave.  All I know is that brave men and women are few and far between.
