That you're making a comparison says it all.

The Old PM comparison.

It was said if Margaret Thatcher had to make a difficult decision she would stay up all night reading the documents. Then inform the cabinet of her decision in the morning.

John Major stayed up all night reading the documents. And asked the cabinet to make a decision in the morning.

Tony Blair had someone summarise the documents for him. He sought a decision from the inner sofa cabinet in the morning.

Gordon Brown stayed up all night reading the documents. In the morning he asked for more documents.

David Cameron had someone else read all the documents while he was asleep. In the morning he'd ask for a precis and make an Old Etonian's club decision without telling the Lib Dems.

Theresa May stayed up all night reading the documents. Discussed them in the morning with the cabinet, where the cabinet secretary then told her what to do.

BQ that would have been a better post!

Tony Blair would have asked Alastair Campbell which decision would have made him look better.

I remember hearing a statement by someone famous; I forget who it was; who said something along the lines that all happy people tend to be happy in a similar way but unhappy people tend to be unhappy in different ways.

Well I think the statement kind of applies to incompetent people; incompetent people tend to be incompetent in different ways, and your two examples would seem to support that assertion.

Happy people are generally mad.

They are happy because they have no awareness of the shittiness of the situation.

There is a difference between being competent, or a genius like Trump, and being lucky. She looks to be lucky as the latest economic figures show

“There was strong and widespread growth across manufacturing with notable increases from renewable energy projects, boats, planes and cars for export. However, despite a small increase in November 2017, construction again contracted in the last three months, with private house building providing the only positive news in the sector.

“The trade deficit narrowed in the last three months, due mainly to increased exports of services, shipments of works of art and cars. Over the last year exports of goods, particularly cars, machinery and crude oil, have continued to increase, and at a faster rate than imports."

When there is a rising tide of economic activity, you can't see those swimming without their cossie as Warren Buffett tells it. There are a few floaters in the current government who are just drifting with the tides.
