promises shmomishes



Politics is often a dirty business, but now the Ruddster is talking up the idea of politicians having consciences! Well, he only mentions consciences in the context of voting, and only on one issue, really.

It's an important issue. Probably not the most important issue, but what with the conscience bizzo and all, it's an interesting one.

  1. I think it should be an issue that is given more coverage actually. It has real consequences for real people. Everything else they are talking about is under cloak and dagger - who knows what the hell is going on? But with this issue, neither party can't hide. It's either a yes or it's a no. I really hope it's a yes...

    1. It certainly is a straightforward issue, M. Not holding my breath, just hoping.

  2. Wonderful! I do wish somebody in the MSM would describe to the general public, the onerous demands of hospitals when there is a person dying and nurses turn into doorbitches worthy of the Blitz Club 1981. Emergency and ICU will only talk to next-of-kin. Banks too.
    My point is that a couple together for decades have their commitment consigned to the bin by any Authority, the moment there is a crisis of medicine, finance or law. This must change.

    1. I'm personally lucky on the medical front, but I know the "who you know" thing is morally bankrupt in itself. TO and I hold medical powers of attorney for each other, just in case.

      It would be great if at least ONE decent thing happened during the next government's rule. Not holding my breath.

    1. Andrew, there are some gems floating around in cyberspace. I'm loathe to post too many of them but, as you say, this one struck me as brilliant.

    1. It would be nice if we didn't have to wait 40 years but yes, looking back, the whole black/white thing seems just plain weird [which is not to diminish the impact it had - it just seems weird.]
