Terminal Decline

"I can carry on as Prime Minister, and you can have whoever you like to lead your precious party!" 

With that line did first Margaret Thatcher and then Tony Blair indicate to even the stanchest supporters that the old dear had finally lost it and simply had to be removed.

By all accounts, Angela Merkel has this morning entered the same sorry state.

Sit in the House of Commons, or the Bundestag, or the United States Congress, for as long as people are still prepared to elect you to it.

But there is a reason why Presidents of the United States are not permitted to serve more than two terms. That is as much for their own good as for everybody else's.
