Quote of the week

A brilliant quote from a caller to Newstalk ZB's Leighton Smith last week, that I just remembered:

"An election is alot like an advanced auction for stolen goods".

  1. First said by H.L. Mencken, but a fine line nonetheless.

  2. F.B. I would have liked to have said:

    "elections are the chance to vote in a democracy for the best individual for the job".

    My fallback position was the aforementioned quote.
