Running for a seat

  • April 3rd, 2008

I like the cliche for election campaigning. It conjures an image, like running for a bus with rows of comfortable seats when you catch it. 

It is actually more like cranking up the nerve to ask a suspicious queue to let you go to the front, then getting on and finding there are no seats, just a whole lot of people jostling the driver and trying to grab the wheel.

dude believe me,
make a major paradigm shift
there is plenty of time yet


Not to mention arguing over whether the bus should be electric, bio-fuel or solar powered and driving on dedicated bus lanes; subsidised or user pays; publicly owned or a private public partnership; a strategic bus asset not saleable to foreigners etc…
