I’ve been watching a lot of the election coverage with interest – partly because of a natural interest in politics, but mainly because of a deep seated conviction that I could do better than most of the muppets that appear on my TV screen every day.
So I’ve decided… I’m going to become an MP.
Obviously not at this election, possibly not from the next one, but I will do it – it is now my new ambition and I am deadly serious about it.
As you can see, I’ve got some fairly strong political ideas / ideals (Basic income for all and I know how to stop radical extremists…). It’s now just a question of working out how I can best to fit these views into the current parliamentary structure, or if I need to try and stand as an independent.
It’s going to take some big changes to life and work (I hope I can still swim – Parliamentary Channel Relay Team anyone?), but I can no longer sit around and let other people do this important work that I feel I can do better.
As soon as I have got my head around a more concrete plan I’ll let you know. In the meantime, watch this space…
No I’m not – it was an April Fools! 🙂
