Who is gov­ern­ing?

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

How ex­cit­ing it is to see all our politi­cians and would-bes dash­ing around by jet plane, car, bus and train in an elec­tion frenzy . It must cre­ate a ter­ri­ble feel­ing of un­ease for some rep­re­sen­ta­tives to ac­tu­ally have to visit their elec­torates how­ever briefly but they con­tinue to smile for the press like rock stars. It is of course of in the na­tional in­ter­est for them to be re-elected as all politi­cians will tell you . They will even go to such lengths to prove they are one with the com­mon herd by ap­pear­ing in pub­lic with­out their coats and ties. The whole show is pos­i­tively thrilling but one thing both­ers me: For the du­ra­tion of the elec­tion cam­paign­ing, who is gov­ern­ing our coun­try?
