There may be an I in politics but theres no room for a me

The fallout from the recent referendum and the resulting meltdown of the front line politicians really brings home one thing - the total selfishness of these people.

They should remember they were elected in a 'democratic' way to run the country on our behalf and not for their own gain

Self serving twats the lot of them.

I would not trust one of them to do what is required of them, trouble is they can fuck up, point the finger at others, and walk away when the money and contacts are made.

Not sure what the exact quote is but someone once said something like how can you trust someone who wants to be a politician. The inference being that someone who desires and pursues influence and power is de facto not to be trusted with it. I'm not sure. There is still some default position in me that says everybody is a good person it's just that definitions of good get skewed in the complexities of people and the world around them. Even the most hideous bustards around believe they are doing good, God's work for instance or shareholder dividends  so I still believe that politicians are fundamentally good people.

They must be under so much conflicts of pressure and expectation though. Everything they do has a counter effect that someone somewhere will be badly affected. Everything has to be a compromise and so it should be. Its those uncompromising people who need to be kept in check and our political system with its supporting democracy is as good as it gets and certainly amongst the best in the world. Its taken centuries even millennia to get there and should still evolve hopefully into something even better but I do fear that darker powers are beginning to get a hold.

Someone also said 'You can tell when a politician's lying because his/her lips move'.

Maybe a little unfair.

There are those - like poor Jo Cox - who seem to have entered politics for all the right reasons.

I've also got a bit of time for the elder statesmen - Heseltine, Vince Cable, Frank Field - who've genuinely served their party and their country.

The downside is harpies like Andrea Leadsom, who use it as an opportunity to inflict their own personal views on the public and twats like Farage who make a lot of noise but run and hide when faced with having to take responsibility.

I've never really worked out Cameron. He claims to have a conscience and wants to help people who are homeless, jobless, disabled etc - but the only evidence I can see is pissing away millions of pounds of taxpayers money on Kids Company.

The whole fucking country's taken a nosedive. Unpleasantness in the air and while not everyone who voted to leave is a racist, those racists who did now think 52% of the population agrees with them.

The Leadsom thing was too weird for words, with Eton educated Tory MPs complaining that the establishment was ganging up on her. Far too far-fetched for any script writer to consider.

David Davis in charge of Brexit? Jesus Christ, he was tweeting in late May about the UK doing unilateral trade deals with France, Germany, Poland etc.. Even I know you can't do that. Johnson must have been made FS to finally consign him to the bin of history, what a laughing stock we are. Embarrassed to be British.
