Unexpectedly Intriguing!
03 May 2005

With the UK elections just two days away, Tim Worstall has thoughts on which political party's members voters in that country should support at the polls. Unlike Tim, we here at Political Calculations(TM) don't have any favorite horses in the race, but we do note the value of his basic guide to politicians, which I'm afraid applies to both sides of the Atlantic:

Here it is, the long awaited Tim Worstall guide to how you should vote on Thursday, essential reading and no doubt able to swing the election. A few basic points first.

  1. All politicians are liars.
  2. All politicians are stupid.
  3. All politicians are thieves.

You should, therefore, be biased to vote against the incumbent in any and all elections. All of them will lie to you, all of them will attempt to steal your money and freedoms but their stupidity means it will take them a couple of years to work out how to do so. There may be another election before they do, at which you can vote them out and start again.

Tim has more, but it actually has to do with the election....
