They’re all the same

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

I’VE been vot­ing since the year I turned 18 and ev­ery time the cam­paigns to be elected or re-elected sur­face I’m im­me­di­ately re­minded of Ground­hog Day. There are very few ex­cep­tions when it comes to ex­pec­tant or re-ex­pec­tant trough-swillers walk­ing the walk hav­ing plagued us for weeks and, far too of­ten, months with talk­ing the talk. The lat­est of­fer­ing to the ripped-off ratepay­ers of the Bund­aberg re­gion will turn out no dif­fer­ent. When coun­cil­lors joined the ranks of politi­cians, the will­ing­ness to serve segued to the be­gin­ning of a new ca­reer in a par­al­lel uni­verse. Two terms max­i­mum for all of them and no fat pen­sions. Treat it the same as ex­tended pa­ter­nity leave and give them a medal when they go back where they came from.
