Politics/Corruption! nasty words, they are ones we see and use regularly, I want to ask a Question, first though, let me just say, this is in no way, meant or intended to be political, just a straightforward, thinking issue, based on a personal view from our members. Many years ago, My father (RIP) became involved with minor politics, he was a staunch party member, (No mention, as I don't want it thought, Politically motivated) he became the Mayor of a Small, Rural English Village, nothing Grand. To get there, he changed his views and Party, (Just to get there) we as a Family thought this Odd, vote getting seemed all he wanted, the Rot set in. He made, Associates, Allies, Cohorts. He lost family, Friends and respect. Just for Votes. He quickly found, that he had promised the earth, to get those Votes, Only to find, that he was hitting his head against a brick wall, on a lot of cases, in issue. He became a Liar to most, (forced to rescind his promise) He was quoted as Corrupt, (His snout was lodged in the Trough) He was Trapped, as many of the Politicians are, he like many, took the easy road. Sinking deeper into the Den of Iniquity. He knew, he had got on the wrong Train, the Gravy Train, was not for him. Too little too late, he had lost so much. He got off, Others will not get off that train, it is fare free and lunch is provided. He was not a Politician, he was my Father, who was misguided, Trying to change the world, cost him. I ask here, "Would any of us (Including me and I don't know) Would WE, get off that gravy train if we were Elected? We all can talk about politics and Corruption BUT how would it affect any of us? Would the trappings be too good to give up? (OK! so that is 3 questions) Jack P.
