Senryu #18 Lying Politicians

Why should we continue to vote for politicians who promise much and deliver nothing!

Tick a box today
Attracted by promises.
Fool me once, you lose!”

The Two Doctors

The political turmoil in the U.K. is unmatched anywhere at present. The only thing missing is an upheaval the likes of which have not been seen since the days of Oliver Cromwell. If you don’t know much of English history this was a time when civil war erupted across the country. Now, you might think I’m being overly dramatic, but here’s a prediction: At the next General Election here in 2024, or earlier, one or more of our “ruling” political parties will be obliterated, expunged, deleted, confined to history. A lot like Monty Python’s parrot! A single party may not win, then a coalition will be formed and the U.K. is doomed, especially if that coalition involves Scottish and Welsh nationalist parties. So for us? Canada or Australia? If only we weren’t so old!
