Govern­ment gym­nas­tics

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

WHY are vot­ers com­plain­ing about the length of the elec­tion cam­paign? Twenty-four hours a day we can watch and pos­si­bly be en­ter­tained by the broadly smil­ing stars of the two ma­jor par­ties with mi­nor sup­port­ing ac­tors danc­ing their way across our fair land, al­ways cheer­ful and ever ready to press hands in friend­ship. And af­ter the cam­paign is over the show will con­tinue on with ac­ro­bat­ics as the cho­sen leader and his faith­ful troop per­form back­flips right be­fore his amazed and puz­zled au­di­ence of re­cent vot­ers. Will the fi­nal act be a com­edy or a tragedy? Only time will tell. Un­for­tu­nately, we will elect the govern­ment we de­serve.
