Why are all forms of media bombarding us with the utterances of would-be politicians? We all know that we can’t believe one word said by any of them.
Is it that only the very worst sorts of liars are attracted to party politics? Or is it the case that promotion within the parties works entirely on the principle that “Brown Matter” floats? Or a combination of both?
Whatever the reason I am sick and tired of their empty promises, long meaningless speeches and their childish squabbling with each other.
If these are the people we have to look to for the running of our country, I am amazed that we are not in an even bigger mess than we already are.
My suggestion is that we all club together and buy the Queen a truly gigantic vat of acid, so that when she is called to dissolve parliament she can do the job properly and rid the world of some of these power-crazed, useless liars.
We could then elect our MPs in the same way we elect our juries. This would have to be an improvement on the current system. At least it couldn’t be any worse.
