It came as no surprise when one of our revered MPs had to be scanned for possible dementia. The scans showed signs of atrophy in the brain which is a possible factor contributing to dementia. This condition is a known fact of course to most of us, true of most of the lot in the nest.
It will be interesting to see how many of our leaders would clear basic neuro and psycho tests. As more and more scams come out of the cupboard, I can see more and more cases being admitted to the atrophy and dementia ward. No wonder the parliament and some of the recent decisions, comments and counter comments we hear remind us of a cuckoos nest - raucous, senseless and self-serving.
But there are more cuckoos outside the Parliament than there are inside of course. These cuckoos are the ones who have voted the other cuckoos in power. Sometimes the only sane ones in our country seem to be safely held within institutions.
