John Lyndon for Prime Minister?

Nothwithstanding his little dig at the Scots (no doubt the cybernats will be throwing things at the telly and burning their Sex Pistols records), he's about the only member of tonight's Question Time panel who spoke some sense.

There has been much debate this week about changing the culture of the banking system. Perhaps it is time to change the culture of politics.

Watching some politicians today, the behaviour was appalling, and the worst example was in the House of Commons with the ding-dong between Balls and Osbourne. Each side blaming the other while telling everyone how competent they are.

The same sort of crap can be seen at Holyrood as well. Politicians trying to outdo each other while making complete arses of themselves.

Yes, we know that a lot of good work does go unreported, especially within committees, but the public face of politics needs to change, especially since the level of trust in politicians is rather lacking these days.

Back to Mr Lyndon. I know he's not everyone's cup of tea (I like him), but imagine having a Prime Minister (or First Minister) with that sort of personality.

Be interesting to see what lyrics he would use for the National Anthem.......

  1. I rather liked the ones he had for the last one he penned...
