Making pig's ear of democracy

It seems that the electorate has decided to try to solve the problems created by neo-liberal right-wing politicians, by electing a neo-liberal right-wing party. It's a case of out with the old and in with the same. It brings to mind the last line of George Orwell's Animal Farm:

"The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."
