  1.  Like the point that they actually don't want to be in touch. That's so true. Can you imagine a real politician actually having a conversation with a pleb such as me? Or even I? Your article is just so true and universally applicable.

    • Can you imagine a real politician actually having a conversation with a pleb such as me?

      I can, and do. However it still doesn't make a blind bit of difference… MP's "surgeries" are just a feeble attempt to pretend they are interested in our concerns. If I raise any concerns which go against government policy, there isn't a snowball's chance in hell that it will go any further than the room we are both sitting in.

       

  2. You probably need a holiday Grandad. May I suggest North Korea? You could interview politicians there on their attitude to smoking in pubs and restaurants.

      • Yeah. Everybody votes the same way at the annual party gathering. No tedious grandstanding by showoff independents. No timewasting divisions as North Korean TDs march through the Ta and Nil lobbies.
