Summing Up Politics

Saw a great quote from a 75 year old in Chicago in respect of the US elections yesterday that neatly sums up the problems with not only US Politics, but politics the world over, including here in the UK.

"I’d like to get to the bottom of what’s really right for this country, and that’s kind of hard while they’re all calling each other names."

Now, I’ll admit that some of the name calling has lessened with the Tories and LibDems cooperating in The Coalition, but the name calling between the government and what currently passes for an opposition in the form of Labour, is, if anything, getting worse.

I’d love to see our elected representatives agreeing occasionally, rather than disagreeing for the sake of it, which seems to happen so much right now. I just don’t think I ever will.
