So the mid-term elections have taken place and several people have voted. The result has been a swing towards Labour which the media are portraying a “huge”.
The Gorse Fox, having watched this cycle many times, sees it as entirely predictable. This time, however, it disappoints him. This time, the circumstances are different. The Country is trying to recover and now doesn’t like the treatment.
The voters seem to be like heroin addicts – two years ago they finally broke away from the pusher who had systematically destroyed their hopes and lives; now they are going through a painful “cold turkey” to put them on the road to recovery but they have bumped into their pusher again. They have forgotten the destruction wrought at the hands of the pusher, they just don’t want any more medicine.
Thinking of the “pusher” reminds the Gorse Fox of a great definition for the Labour party in today’s paper:
Ineptocracy – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers
