Voting awkwardness

Yesterday I had lunch with two friends who were in a quandary about whom to vote for in the coming election.

  George is a neo-Malthusian, transvestite bisexual with a love of the environment and John is a Dispensational premillennialist awaiting the End Times with the expectation of the Rapture, where he will be taken up to heaven before the Tribulation.

  Should I direct George to the Greens and John to the Coalition? I’m asking the readers of this blog to help me and leave comments.

    Malthus was obviously right on the money, as we can now testify, 200 years later, and Scotts have always been beyond the pale, so whatevere they say is pure conjecture. You advise is very good indeed. People should always vote for the future they predict. This way, if it happens, they cannot say, they had nothing to do with it.

      The election campaign is entertaining with its cast of characters. We have a script of inconsequential dialogues acted out by dexterous comedians and comediennes with amusing personalities. The Bard did say:
      “All the world’s a stage,
      And all the men and women merely players:”
      But alas, our political theatre doesn’t come cheap!

    Your friends are not the only ones in a quandary. Some issues before us look to the future – like caring for the environment; others deal with our more immediate needs – like allowances for working mothers (means tested) and help for the disabled and pensioners. Your friends particular interests don’t mesh with most of what politics should deal with.
