Politicians can be an endless source of amusement if you can see past the politics side of things. I used to love the satirical TV programmes of earlier days, lampooning individual politicians, but apparently that is illegal now and you are no longer allowed to publicly poke fun at our thin-skinned politicians.
However, social media still has plenty to say and I had a good laugh last night after reading about The Green Party’s latest health manifesto. (These are the people who are doing their best to both ban the use of tobacco and legalize the use of marijuana)
They state they plan to “support water-only policies in schools, hospitals and sports clubs.” What? No cold beer after a game of rugby? No cup of tea with breakfast for hospital patients? No coffee after the PTA meeting at school? Whatever is the world coming to?
Of course, the Greens are now stating that they actually meant they want to restrict the use of sugary drinks – so why didn’t they say that? Perhaps they have been smoking too much weed!
If we cannot have a giggle at some of the mistakes our political parties occasionally make, then the world is becoming a very sorry place indeed.
Hope your day is going well,
