History and Corrupt Politicians

I like to think my lack of posting in recent weeks is due to a hectic social schedule . Truth be known a cocktail of inertia plus a mind elsewhere is the reason.
All the ghastly political events flooding the media have merely had the effect of stifling my rebellious nature [ is this a cunning ploy to dampen the likes of Ms V ] . Today shortly before leaving for Frankfurt I read that the British government have quietly awarded them selves a nine thousand pound annual claims allowance plus other fringe benefits . Brown, who spoke of cleaning politics up .. Oh my they are still as dirty as the colour of his name …. And we all know what smells and is brown . Yet 'Pox a la Politica' is more virulent than swine flu .
Yesterday Ulla Schmidt of the German government explained in terms befitting only a politician that the use of her tax paid for ministerial car for private holiday travel to Spain was actually cheaper than her renting one ! For whom Frau Schmidt ? The car by the way has been stolen . I do so hope by a German tax payer.
Meanwhile at my own expense I’ve been for a long weekend in Bavaria. The weather was wonderful with scenery to match . If you ever get the chance , try to visit this part of Germany . It's majestic ..Most of us are ignorant of German history … brainwashed by the Daily Mail re WW1 and WW2 the masses are led to believe that is all there is to Deutschland .
Reader there is so much more to this country . Relatively young compared to other countries it once had several kings . One being Ludwig 11nd of Bavaria . This artistic , sensitive individual was well and truly set up by politicians who had him declared insane .Minus any examination.
A few days later he was found dead in a lake . Read about him on line .
My point ? Politicians are the dangerous ones , with two things in mind a) money and b) power.. In UK we have prime specimens , smooth as silk , the only thing they are economical with is the truth . History does repeat itself .See MP's expenses !
Later I will add some photographs of Schwangau .
Until the next time , Miss Vixen is recovering her powers of rebellion .
