The powers that be are asking for token feedback from Joe and Jenny Public on the question of Party Funding – before they go ahead and give them a shedload of cash anyway. Hmmmm, now this is a bit of a conundrum (not), do I want our morally bankrupt, fiscally inept political parties to be funded by Jimmy and Janice Taxpayer? Will my humble opinion make any difference to the ultimate outcome?
I think the term I’m groping for is ‘fait accompli’
(English translation: Done up like a kipper, as per usual.)
