Set the example, not be it

A Facebook status update shamlessly stolen from my US friend Ian Dickson:-

Ok, I think I’ve had enough. I have to institute a zero-tolerance policy on any US political argument that has no obvious merit or serious intelligence behind it. Way too many are spouting vitriol and blaming the current administration for their own problems, when they are full-grown adults who made their own lives. Stop blaming other people for your problems, get off your arse and educate yourself on the democratic process. Stop pandering with emotion, and use your head. Then make something of yourself. You have no one but yourself to blame for your life. Set the example, not be it.

Whilst Ian was talking about US politics, those involved in British politics would be wise to consider his words. Thanks Ian.
