It was an amusing song by Graucho Marks which sounds like it was from a film in the early days of sound. But it is the perfect song to accompany the careers of politicians. I am quite surprised the British people accept with demur, the appointment of politicians to key posts where they stay for 18 months or less, sometimes but rarely for more, have their pet projects, their way of doing things all put into motion and are then replaced for another set of priorities from another politician.
This is no way to run Education or Health or anything. But it is the way we run the UK and it produces a fractured even disconnected series of systems that cannot support 70 million people.
I really think we need to improve on our expectations and have better manifestos, more rounded and thought through, with people expected to run with them for the whole five years of a Government.
