Liar, liar, pants on fire! It cannot come as any surprise, in recent years confidence in and respect for politicians of all political persuasions is at an all time low! I have therefore written to the BBC Director General suggesting the Corporation airs a show called ‘Party Political Strictly Come dancing’, in which the leaders of all political parties, having slipped into Cuban heels and Lady Janes compete against one another for a ballroom trophy, and the right to occupy 10 Downing Street! With so much at stake, I feel sure no politician will be backward in putting their best foot forward. Oh, I’ve just been informed, an outbreak of fleckles has nothing whatsoever to do with a sexually transmitted disease, but a great deal to do with a particular dance step! Huh, who would have known?
On a much more serious note folks, I have an idea on we might combat electoral apathy. What the country needs is a different kind of voter. Bearing in mind there are 8.5 million dogs in the UK, 7.4 million cats and 1 million wabbits, how about enfranchising the lot of them, after all, our pets are just as likely to understand political double-talk as you or I? Since all we bipeds need do is make a selection using a ‘X’ on the ballot paper, our devoted animals could do the same using an inkpad and a paw print? Furthermore, what’s wrong with the idea of a British Bull dog running MI6? And before you ask, no, I haven’t been smoking wacky backy, but I am about to!
