Razors and candidates
In most razor ads, producers show someone gliding a razor on his cheek and chin and use the written or spoken phrase of ‘You Deserve the Best’. Similarly, we find someone aspiring to winning a parliamentary seat using the same commercial pattern and repeat the same slogan, telling voters that they ‘Deserve the Best’ only for the sake of his personal interests or those of others with the same ideas.
We have been always in quest for the best, but who is he? You, dear candidate, will surely be the best because you are trying to delude us into believing that you are the best, although your history shows that you are more like a crossword puzzle whose answers can sometimes come through opposite clues. We found out that those claiming superiority are as far from their claims as 11 light years. Some of the words they say are exactly like disposable razors that look nice and shiny, but are only made for one person’s use.
Statements made by some of those dreaming of seats in elected councils have become like razors that are used only once, because the days of old classic type of razors that could be sharpened and used by everybody are gone. I advise you to come up with another slogan, because we know that we ‘deserve the best’ and you are not amongst them for many reasons such as sectarianism, doctrinism and tribalism practiced by some of you from time to time. Be assured that you will never be the best except for those with psychological diseases!
