I HAVE some good news for all who suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th) as the next Friday the 13th is due the day after the General Election on December 12.

From this Friday we will all be led to the “promised land” according to all the mediocre ignominious wannabees, has-beens and hypocrites who live in ivory towers way above us plebs.

Their awful advertising and boring speechifying is littered with hyperbole, lies, fake news, exaggerations, smears, platitudes, hidden agendas, looming economic fiasco and failures. It all sounds so familiar. Have we been here before?

It would be refreshing if we were not bombarded with all this rubbish and that honesty actually prevailed. As if.
