Politics has always been run by conmen, now they don't even bother to hide it

    With the Internet, it seems that the more blatant a ********ter you are the more successful you can be. So much so the politicians don't even try anymore. Add to this the state of journalism and clickbait and we have no chance of genuine debate.

    It's a bit like the advent of Pop Idol, you knew Pop was manufactured, it's just now they show you what goes into the hotdog.

    It's bad enough they are conmen and women, it's infuriating they think that little of us, it's beyond a joke they are right.


    Did you have a bad M1 exam?

    Ha! I need some a tranquiliser or something. Politics provokes the kind of energy that sends you back to bed with a Valium.
