Young Dreams | Shattered by reality

20 07 2010

I recently asked my mate’s little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up… She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day. Both of her parents, Lib Dems, were standing there, so I asked her, “If you were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?”

She replied, “I’d give food and council houses to all the homeless people.”

Her parents beamed with pride.

“Wow…what a worthy goal.” I told her, “But you don’t have to wait until you are Prime Minister to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I’ll pay you 50 pounds… Then I’ll take you over to Asda where the homeless guy hangs out and you can give him the 50 to use toward food and a new
house.”

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked,  “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the 50 pounds?”

I said, “Welcome to the Tories.”

Her parents still aren’t speaking to me..
