        I had a look at it again..I think I got it the first time..maybe you’ll explain in case I’m missing something instead of the snide comment.

        It’s a metaphor on democracy it looks like to me. That our betters know better than the plebs.

        Don’t come back now with some snide comment as you don’t understand it..let’s work this out like grown ups Tony.

          That’s exactly it Anne. It was printed in the New Yorker a few days ago. It assumes the voter is too stupid to vote and they will only vote in an idiot.

          Ergo.. Democracy is bad.
