Local politics

By mrswoolybill
Bryan, our new Mayor, on his first official outing. He's having his ear bent by Paul who is Chairman of the high street traders' group and who can talk for England.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

I think Bryan is wondering what on Earth he's let himself in for.

Brilliant timing.

Paul: "Blah blah blah blah. Blah, bla-de-bla, blah blah blah..."
Bryan (silently): "Oh do shut up, you sound more like a politician than I do"

Little Johnny goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Love this picture Moira.
It is countered by my absolute hatred of local politics.
Having been involved with local politicians over the last 30 years on projects I am just quite surprised that anything gets done at all.
As Malc says......it's all blah blah blah blah blah.

Very much my experience, having worked with our Council over many years. The answer here is the Town Clerk, who is the one who actually gets things done...
Thanks everyone, I hope the week is treating you well.

The person with mouth agape looks more the stereotype of a politician - letting off hot air!! The other person looks like the public - not believing a word he says!

Excellent candid capture and bet Paul's watch weighs more than Bryan's chain of office!

One fellow thinks he knows it all and the other one is not so sure. Excellent expressions captured Moira.

The does it all meets the know it all, you need a thick skin to be in local politics these days it seems more and more.
