A bloke from the bush walked into an antique shop. After looking around for a while, he noticed a very life-like bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but it was so striking that he decided to buy it anyway.
He took it to the owner and said "How much is this bronze rat?" The owner replied "It's $12 for the rat and $100 for the story".
The fellow gave the owner his $12 and said" I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story!"
As he walked off down the street, he noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the drains and begun following him. This was a little disconcerting, so he started to walk a little faster, but within a couple of blocks the swarm of rats had grown to hundreds, and they were all squealing and screeching in a very menacing way.
He increased his speed and ran on towards the river and as he ran, he looked behind him and saw the rats now numbered in their millions! And they were running faster and faster.
By now very concerned, he ran down to the pier and threw the bronze rat as far out into the water as he could.
Amazingly, the millions of real rats jumped into the water after it and were all drowned.
The man walked back to relate all this to the shop owner, who said "Ah, you've come back for the story then?" Heck no" said the bloke "I came back to see if you've got a bronze politician!?"

yes - funny but if it were true wouldn't our world be a better place - politics is very shady - 90% of politicians present one image/message and do the opposite

And there's really no reason for them to be shady. However, the system is broken and probably beyond repair.

true - it's set up so decent guys get blocked before they get anywhere and/or decent guys don't want to play the game at all
