Corruption

A government which has been in power too long will become bloated, self serving and corrupt

A busy time of late, which might explain why I have been so quiet. Just one thought for the moment, concerning the ongoing dispute between Sturgeon and Salmond in Scotland. A government which has been in power too long will, whatever their stripe, become bloated, self serving and corrupt. The SNP is no different, their primary concern being to hold onto power rather than working for the good of the people.

I know there isn't much in the way of opposition in Scottish politics. One could say Scotland is a one party state. The current farrago illustrates the fact that too much power is vested in the hands of the one party, which cannot be good for democracy. It is probably too much to hope that come the next election, Scottish voters will give the SNP a good kicking, and a reminder of where their duty lies.
