Politics In A Nutshell

Conservative, Liberal
Labour, I think
you'll get
a kick out of
A little boy goes to his
dad and asks, 'What is Politics?'
Dad says, 'Well son, let
me try to explain it this way:Add Image
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
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 the little boy 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 the little boy 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 in the keyhole
and sees his father in bed with the nanny.
He gives up and goes back to bed.
The next morning,
the little boy 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 think politics is all about.'
The little boy replies,
'The Prime Minister is screwing the Working Class
while the Government is sound asleep.
The People are being ignored
and the Future is in deep shit.'
