Sure isn’t pol­i­tics just a one horse race?

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - OPINION -

SIR,

Read­ing some elec­tion dis­cus­sions in the news­pa­pers I found that you could bet on elec­tion re­sults in most coun­tries. I, how­ever, am more fa­mil­iar with bet­ting on horses and won­der what com­par­isons could be made be­tween these two bet­ting types.

In horse rac­ing some horses are doped whereas in pol­i­tics there are too many dopes.

Horses are checked for il­le­gal per­for­mance en­hance­ment whereas there is no need to check politi­cians for this based upon their per­for­mances.

With rac­ing there are only thor­ough­bred horses but in pol­i­tics there are some don­keys.

Per­haps the only sure bet is that no mat­ter who you vote for you will still get a politi­cian. Sin­cerely,

Den­nis Fitzger­ald Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia
