Theresa May is fixated on the phrase ‘strong and stable’ leadership. She parrots it with disturbing relentlessness, and even this morning on the Andrew Marr show, couldn’t avoid using the phrase despite being prodded not to! Given that Mrs. May seems to suffer from a dearth of Queen’s English, I decided it would be good to provide her with some synonyms for ‘strong and stable’ to get her through the next few weeks of the election. Here are my suggestions, and don’t worry, Theresa, you can have them free of charge! Instead of S&S, you can say:
‘Forceful and uninterrupted’ leadership.
‘Muscular and monotonous’ leadership.
‘Bullish and continuous’ leadership.
‘Stringent and unalterable’ leadership.
‘Domineering and unchangeable’ leadership.
‘Powerful and permanent’ leadership.
‘Staunch and perpetual’ leaderhip.
Or if you get bored of using three words, use any of the following single words which convey the same meaning as ‘strong and stable’:
I’m sure its exactly what the people want!
