Our politicians are in it for the long haul, going nowhere

What are all these politicians doing here? And how can we make them go away?

On Thursday my Sun Media colleague Anthony Furey said “If people entered politics for the right reasons” we’d have fewer scandals over greedy speaking fees, political coverups or outright corruption. Which is true.

And he wished people would enter politics because, while leading a normal life, they’d notice “a handful of policies out there that need to be changed”, seek office, stay long enough to fix those few specific things, then leave.
