And Politicians Wonder Why The Public Don’t Trust Them …

So I know this weeks blog posts have been a bit weird – even by my standards – but to be honest, I’m finding it harder to write stuff these days.

I know … I know … you would think from the rubbish I write everyday, I’ve been finding it hard to write stuff for the past 7 years, but right now it seems especially difficult.

So why do I do it?

Well, to be honest, it’s about self discipline. The requirement for me to find something to write about every day … find something I find interesting and have a perspective on.

I know, it’s pathetic … but the fact is, if I stopped writing for 2 weeks, there’s a high chance I would stop for good and while that might be music to your ears, for me it’s about ensuring I always have a moment to ‘think’, even if what I’m thinking is utter shit.

Anyway, the reason for all this rambling prologue is because I saw an article in The Week and I wanted to know if others had heard about it and – if like me – you were shocked and appalled.

There’s nothing else to say, the story tells itself, but it highlights why politicians are trusted less than even adfolk, and that’s saying something.

Have a good weekend, even if this will make you feel decidedly uncomfortable.

The channel, not the emotion.

Comment by DH

I owe you $10,100 then Dave. I LOVE TLC channel … especially the shows that make anything from the ‘Real Housewives of _____’ look like Shakespeare.

Comment by andy@cynic

Self interest support. Thanks. I think.

Comment by Rob

I hadn’t heard about this story and I am equally as shocked by it. What is worse is that politicians will justify it as the price you sometimes need to pay for peace. How they can sleep in their beds is anyones guess.

Comment by Pete

What’s worse for me Pete is all the stuff that’s going on we don’t know about, under the guise – as you say – of ‘national security’. The question is ‘whose security’ are they talking about … ours or – as I suspect – theirs.

How come you’re self discipline extends to everything that annoys the rest of us?

Comment by DH

He’s a bastard. Maybe not as much as those US officials, but still a bastard.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Blimey. Quelle Surprise.
It’s no wonder UK folks are taken in by Farage is it?

Comment by Northern

Yep. It seems some people are happy to align with shit people based on the fact they’re not as good at hiding how shit they are.

Was the downing of the Iranian plane really “accidental”?
