The news today is as always depressing. The ineffectual leaders of the English parties are desperately reforming their ministers and juniors in a vain attempt to convince the nation to vote for them. So far I am far from impressed. One clean cut young lady has appeared on local TV telling the world she is glad to have stepped down from her position (who? what? No idea!) and is doing the most important thing, caring for her constituents. Lies, all lies! Others, also unknown, have moved to lesser jobs and accepted this just to keep the position by their fingernails and also the money that goes along with it. What difference will it make to you and me? None!
Roll on the election so we can remove this bumbling idiot Cameron and replace him with another barely elected bumbling idiot in Milliband. At least Clegg will disappear without trace.
The Heart of Midlothian lost an important match on Saturday, now the fans are indulging in the usual empty recriminations. How quickly fans turn against their team. Heroes are loathed simply for not being as good as the crowd are, in their own heads. Players and their dispositions are discussed in an all knowing manner by those who know nothing. Those who failed to make the grade in any way are happily criticising those who did. Tsk! That's something I never do......wot..?
However it got me thinking just how easy it is to grumble about others way of working, whether we have any experience or not of their work. Clearly politicians are one area we all grumble about, however today the grasping corruption probably annoys us more than incompetence. There is no doubt we can always do better than others at their job, be it running railways, buses, government, or fixing the car or repairing the plumbing. Sometimes we are right, but how often do we end up suffering because we are vexed and those that vex us walk away happily? It's a funny old world Saint!
