The reason our nation is in the state it is…….

….is due to the standard of politicians with which we have ‘appointed’.



He who knows not, but knows not that he knows not, is a fool:

Shun him!

He who knows not, but knows that he knows not, is simple:

Teach him!

He who knows not, but knows not that he knows, is asleep:

Wake him!

He who knows, and knows that he knows, is a wise man:

Follow him!

The problem we have in this nation of ours is:

We have 650 of of the first; we cannot do anything about the second or third (which encapsulate the first) because they refuse to listen to  us; and we have none of the last.

People: by refusing to take an interest in politics per se; by refusing to question whether there exists other forms of democracy; by burying your heads in the proverbial sand, you have just achieved the impossible: you have procreated yourselves.

Having made your bed, one can only hope you are comfortable in it – in which case, would you all (politicians, commentariat and those on twitter) stop ‘carping’ about what you feel is wrong with our nation?

Just asking……………………….
