Popular and competent
We have a popular and competent Prime Minister, according to the popular and competent Prime Minister herself. But how do we measure that popularity and competence. How many enemies she has? How much power she has? How she handles the media? The polls? The lies she gets away with - and the ones she doesn't get away with?
Well, the polls could be an indication of popularity. So could talk back radio.
What about competence? Normally it is based on whether you have fulfilled your job description.
But the Prime Minister does not have a job description. There is no statutory provision which establishes the office of the Prime Minister, or which defines its role. Like her government, her role is what she determines it to be.
So how do we know how competent she is - What is the measure?
