Naked emperor

• Maybe I'm going mad, or am I the only one that feels like an idiot. We voted for change in the last election and were promised the sun, moon and stars. What do we end up with over a year later? A new suit of clothes that only the privileged can see.

Our kids who are educated to university standard have to leave to get jobs, yet retired civil servants, teachers and an endless list of advisers get golden handshak-es, gilded pensions and -- the best bit -- their old job back.

I hope that I'm not the only one that can see that the emperor is naked.
