I was listening to the radio as I was driving home in my SAAB (I thought that a bit of advertising might help with my next purchase LOL.) and they were speaking of the results of a poll that had been taken recently.
It suggested that their might be a hung parliament at the next election.
Now I am sure that the words on every ones lips when they heard this would have gone something like this.
"They all deserve to be hung after the fiasco's of the past year, what with the expenses scam and the banking farce to name but two."
Now before anyone who does not know what a hung parliament is, and might get excited at the thought, a hung parliament means that there will be no clear majority after the votes have been counted at the next election, meaning that the British public have no faith in any one party to dig us out of the mess we find ourselves in.
It only proves what I have stated in this blog many times, that no matter who we vote for it will only be the lesser of two evils.
If it is a hung parliament all the evil will be put together in a "coalition government" to sort out the mess, and who knows where that will take us.
It might be the best solution though, and save all the political bickering in the house, where they all act like a bunch of school kids instead of getting down to the business in hand; the job we hired them to do, and get this country back on an even keel again, or we might find there is a new meaning to the term "hung parliament."
