Salve civium. I have read we get the politicians we deserve in elections, is this a serious insult to the voting public or just a truism?

Did the UK and USA really deserve Johnson and Trump. Did New Zealand do something better to get Jacinda Ardern?

    Neither. It is a serious condemnation of the non-voting public and of those who believed a Reality TV host's impossible promises. I don't think any of us deserved 2020. New Zealand elected a lady who listens to scientists and implements their recommendations. She was rewarded last week with a landslide victory.

    Nobody deserves Johnson or Trump, both are prime examples of the shite floats to the top. The last people we want as our leaders are people who want to be our leaders...
