Politics and Policies

We have sat having dinner this evening with the TV still on in the other room. We are being bombarded with Party Political Broadcasts due to the impending General Election on Thursday and over hearing the mumbled empty policies being promised from the mouth of candidates and celebrities my husband and I mumbled a few of our own choice morsels!

My youngest suggested that actually she thought she would make a very good Prime Minister. "And what would you do?" we probed sweetly.
"Oh I'd make everything cheaper!" she said "so we could all afford things like houses"

"And I would save the elephants, I love elephants!"

"And I would plant things!"
"What would you plant?" (thinking planet saving trees here...)
"Sunflowers!" she pronounced "You don't see many of them about and they are so bright"

Hmm.....am I the proud owner of an innocent 5 year old? No. She is 17 and doing her A Levels and although all said tongue in cheek it does worry me slightly LOL!

Having said that I actually think she couldn't do much more damage to the country as the bunch of fools we have the choice of to elect! VOTE JASMINE!


  1. I'll vote for her and I'm fairly certain my "just turned 18 and supposed to be studying for A levels" daughter would too !

  2. I definitely would have voted for the Jasmine Party! Sunflowers are always wonderfully cheering, so too elephants! x
