Trust in Politicians.

There it was,

My first laugh of the day.

Listening to the news

Brexit was mentioned,


Then came the statement,

“If The Brexit deal was not accepted

Trust in politicians would be harmed.”

I laughed out loud.

Trust in politicians is a joke,

Always will be.

They don’t care for others,

They only care for what’s in it,

What’s in it for themselves.

Trust in politicians is a dream,

A dream that has been a nightmare,

A nightmare for centuries.

      Thank you Neville, I am glad that you agree.

        I could arrange for anyone who disagrees to be locked up...

        Well, it's said the church is, as one thing, 'The Tory Party at Prayer'. So all at church at Tories?!
        I had better have that chin-wag with Teresa at a local church near us. She and hubby attend there when she is not away on business.
        But she (a politician) will move her lips, so as you've said...….

          One of the ex ministers that attends our Church is one of the strongest Labour supporters that I know, I get on very well with him although we do not speak of politics.

        • Michael Edwards

          We have been so failed by our politicians who have almost to a man (and woman) failed to embrace our current issues that I for one have no faith in them at all. How dare they even call themselves politicians. You might gather I am in full agreement with your well said poem this am.

          • Goldfinch60

            Yes Michael we have been around for long time to see all the havoc that they created with no thought to those who they are meant to serve.

          • orchidee

            Yep, let's trust 'em? For a change?

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            THANKS UNCLE ANDY ~ My Grandparents told me about ERIC LIDDELL and how he had defied the PRINCE OF WALES (EDWARD VIII) in His stand for the SANCTITY of Sunday ! God vincated Him and He broke the World Record in the 400 yards which was not his natural sport ! Love Chariots of Fire and the music by Vangelis !
            AS far as Politicians are concerned some are MORONS ~ BUT Theresa May is not one of them ! When DAVID fled the Scene of Battle ~ She stepped into the Breach. She has worked very hard to get an AGREEMENT @ oddds of 17 to 1 ! All I ask is that you pray for her Tonight and dont laugh at her Tomorrow if she loses ! Thanks for sharing ~
            Blessings & Love ~ To You Both ~
            BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

              Yes the music of Vangelis is very good.

              I cannot say the same about May!
