The fundamentals of Politics..

Bright little Johnny goes to his dad and asks, 'What is Politics?'

Dad says, 'Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The Prime Minister. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government. We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People. The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future. Now think about that and see if it makes sense.'

So Johnny goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his nappy. So little Johnny goes to his parent's room and finds his mother asleep.

Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks through the keyhole into the nanny’s room to see his father in bed with her, having a romp. He gives up and goes back to bed, distraught and with much to think about. [Nanny = dee maid in Dongkey Rock]

The next morning, Johnny say's to his father, 'Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now. '

The father says, 'Good, son, tell me in your own words what you understood about politics.'

Johnny: 'The Prime Minister screws the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are ignored or neglected and the Future is in deep shit.'
