Six months is a long time in politics and we have even longer than that until the next general election takes place.
Of course, all the parties are now, unofficially at least, campaigning to capture the imaginations of the voters and predictably, the Conservatives are the most popular party in the polls at this moment in time.
Before they get to be too complacent, though, it is worth remembering that its main players have little experience of running anything more complicated than the tuck shops in their various public schools and their leader had a career in public relations – a profession where you gain the ability to persuade people that even a turd can be a ‘must have’ product.
They keep telling us they have great ideas but they have yet to reveal exactly what they are; they are promoting theory, rather than reality.
Now that The Sun newspaper has announced it is switching from being a Labour supporting rag to Conservative blue, there will be many more who will soak up all the promises made by David Cameron and his posse. The problem is they are the same readers who believed that Freddie Starr ate his hampster and that they all have a chance at copping off with the topless models on page three. They are gullible!
This might sound like I am a Labour supporter or I am anti Conservative but I am not. I was brought up within a Tory voting family and have been raised to hold beliefs about country, personal morality and honesty, which I have tried to incorporate into my everyday life – of course I have failed but I did say ‘tried’!
The problem I have now – and I believe there are many others like me – is that I am disillusioned by all of the parties, as they all seem to be just mimicking each others presentation and policies.
Just like the buttocks on a Sumo wrestler, there is not a lot between them!
Therefore, we should not write anybody off, or vote anyone in, just yet!
