And Then They Dissolve...

The MSM are variously referring to the fact that parliament has either been dissolved or parliament dissolves. This is a tad annoying as it would suggest that for all this time we’ve been wishing they’d all do one, all we had to do was throw a really big bucket of water over them all.

No, it’s got to be a tad harder than that surely. So how does that dissolving work exactly? Never mind, I’d just loved to have been there to witness it and I guess it was something tougher than water, right? Undiluted sulphuric acid? If so, I bet it still took a while and I’m full sure that even now there’s still a whiff of foul air and a hint of poison in the immediate locality.

Later, I heard Teaser May-or-Not on the radio saying she’d been to London to see the Queen and informed her, like she hasn’t got a telly, of the dissolution of parliament. Now this, to my old ears, sounded like the eminently more acceptable word to us poor sods out here, ‘disillusioned’.

Quote;  Laurence J. Peter.

“Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.”

            Ronald Reagan.

“Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.”

            Gerald R. Ford.

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”

            Ayn Rand.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
