Like most people these days I’ve been keeping one increasingly cynical eye on the news, and I’m appalled by what I see. Politicians of all parties taking us for mugs; a fat, bungling fool for a prime minister; a smarmy twat as leader of the opposition; and a third party whose leader nobody knows. While I believe in democracy, I have no faith in any of the choices presented to me. And will someone please explain why the speaker got blamed for parliament being full of corrupt assholes? I fear that people will now turn, in rebellion, to more extreme parties like the BNP, which never bodes well for minorities like people with disabilities. As for myself, I’m considering voting jury team.
