Isn't it incredible how Britain has become a place where unquestionably weak leadership is accepted as the norm, while the kind of basic political competence of the past is greeted with furious howls of condemnation?

Love them or loathe them, can anyone seriously imagine strong leaders like Thatcher or Blair just sitting back and doing absolutely nothing as one of their cabinet ministers writes a newspaper article attacking the official party position?

But somehow this kind of staggeringly weak leadership and incompetence from Theresa May is accepted these days with barely a mutter of criticism, while Jeremy Corbyn is absolutely vilified for doing what the leaders of the past would have done as a matter of course.
