Politics or Charity

Boiling the kettle for my breakfast cuppa after my shower this morning, I heard the tail end of a radio interview about ‘donations’.
Not knowing the full context or having that much interest really, what caught my ear was the interviewee’s comment:
“If you donate to a charity, you’re considered a good guy. If you donate to a political party, you’re the bad guy. What’s the difference?”

My first thought was all political parties consider themselves charities then.
After two sips of tea, I saw things clearer, and there’s a bloody big difference mate!
soap boxCharities help those who are less fortunate than most.
Political Parties screw those who can least afford it, bleeding them dry to the extent of desperation until they are dependent on Charity.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Also charities need donations to exist to help others while political parties wish donations to help themselves to exist for themselves.
