    Are there any people in politics that you could honestly say you trust?

    For any Brits out there, did you see 'Have I got news for you' at the weekend? Boris Johnson (Conservative MP), presented the show. It was very funny...but when you are laughing AT them and not with, it's not a good sign! The man is a complete buffoon!

    I wholeheartedly trust that most of them will take any advantage of any opportunity to get in power, remain in power, feather their nests, and say anything no matter how deceitful, broker illicit deals, if their situation requires it.

    It's an implicit contract they have with us, since in my country almost all are lawyers.

    Are there any people in politics that I can honestly say I trust? Is this a joke? :rolleyes: You're kidding, right? (LOL) No, honestly, I long ago gave up on all of them. I think they're all either idiots or crooks at best, and downright evil at worst. Oh, I'm sure there's an exception somewhere, at least I hope there is, but I'll be damned if I know who it is.

    Oxymoron indeed, Pecker!
