Winner and Losers ~ November 26, 2010

Posted 26 Nov 2010 by Walaa Idris

Very happy to see the NO2AV campaign is gaining momentum and uniting some great political names from both sides of the political spectrum therefore giving it more weight – it makes the “No to the Alternative Vote” campaign today’s winner.

Howard Flight’s remark yesterday (which he already withdrew and apologised for unreservedly) was out of order, but to use it as political ping pong is also out of order. As the saying goes two wrongs don’t make a right. But in politics these days we seem to have a schizophrenic attitude towards our politicians. On the one hand we want them to be honest, relatable “one of us” and expect them to speak their mind, and on the other everything they say, if we don’t like or agree with we shoot them down for it. Then we wonder why decent ordinary folks will rather stick needles in their eyes than become our representative. The losers are ALL those who see an opportunity to have a dig at the other side in every human flaw except their own!
