    And the corollary is:

    “We all know what we shouldn’t do, but we know how to get re-elected, so we do it.”

    Doesn’t always work e.g. G Brown.

    If they want to get re-elected they must be seen to be fair. Wielding the axe amongst the poor while turning a blind eye to wealthy tax dodgers will be seen for what it is, corrupt.

    True in Belgium, where they still have a caretaker Government, they can’t even elect themselves.

    Bollocks. They don’t have the first idea what to do. If they did they’d pick up the 250k of free next clothing on offer. Although to be fair if I knew the answer I’d keep quiet lest I was given the horrendous dross they sell.
