Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

OB­SERV­ING politi­cians to­day, one is re­minded of the bar­rage bal­loons ring­ing cities and air­ports in the UK dur­ing the last World War.

Both share the same fea­tures – big bags of gas not do­ing very much, ex­cept for tak­ing up a lot of space.

At least the bal­loons re­quired a minis­cule amount of money to per­form a func­tion. If only one could say the same about “pol­lies”.

The war ended and the bal­loons were packed away. Politi­cians go on for­ever, it seems. R.M. RUS­SELL, Mt Na­sura.
