Electoral stream —
bait fishhook with promises;
austerity bites.

    1. As you probably gathered, Ese, I’m not impressed with my country’s coalition government. They’re not listening to the electorate, and seem to be pushing through parliament some bills not mentioned in their manifesto/s.


    1. Yes, sadly it is the same all over — the world is littered with politicians’ broken promises. There is none so deaf as the people in power. I’m glad to note, though, that our new Archbishop of Canterbury has been giving the government some stick on the subjects of banks. Somehow I think this is a cleric who won’t let the Establishment sit on him.
