Art of the Possible

Across the Pond vetocracy makes the usual gridlock look more dangerous than any noisy 

radio shockjock as this side of the mill Pond the 'Mother of Parliaments' that if it was would 

make the scandal of expenses even more expensive in public esteem, is having a set-to 

with the 'Gentlemen (and Ladies) of the Press' that wants no effective redress against its 

excesses against the innocent young and old, the brave and the not so bold, so we come to 

a pretty pass, that makes many despair at the hypocrisies of both the politicos and the 

hacks....ur! ratatatat! or as you on the other farther shore may say, 'You dirty rats' to your 

gridlock as we grimace and gripe at our less severe blessed island - and a bit -local fight.

Politics is 'the art of the possible', knowing that the way to hell is paved with good 

intentions and that good people do disagree as to ideals as well as ways and means as the 

moral high ground can be a disastrous landslip unless we think, we act, we try to 

compromise without selling out others as well as ourselves, by avoiding that old curse of 

self-righteousness that is often taken for being so damned righteous in our own myopias.
