Politicians are held in very low esteem by the general public, somewhere
down there beyond estate agents and members of the legal profession. You know
why? They keep arguing with each other, that's why! Why can't they just agree to
put aside their differences, get rid of all that bickering and snarling? it is
all so divisive, and as any good pundit will tell you, it is divisiveness that
turns people off...
...The problem behind all of this is.... elections! Why do we have them?
They set people against each other, they cause rifts, and the dreaded
divisiveness, they force people into making unnecessary choices and decisions.
Surely, if only our own dear Queen were to be allowed to choose someone she
thinks is up to the job of running the whole country, we could save all the
expense and bother of going through these bloody silly elections. If the Queen
doesn't feel up to it, perhaps the Head of the Armed Forces could be asked to
intervene. No doubt a sensible chap, and well experienced at finding Heads of
State in other countries too.
Then, instead of bickering and being divisive, we could all pull together in harmony and unity.
We've all heard people on the doorstep say 'oh why can't you all just agree with each other?' And then when we find an issue with cross-party agreement they complain they don;t have a choice. That's the politician's lot I suppose!
