This person’s vote is worth the same as mine and yours

This letter is from a country newspaper from the border-land between Victoria and New South Wales. I am reliably assured it is real.

Oh dearie me. It reminds me of when the British public were supposed to have rioted over the adoption of the Gregorian calendar, designed to correct the “drift”of Easter in the former Julian calendar. In fact, although it is a popular myth, such riots never occured, and were merely a fiction flowing from a politically acerbic painting of the time by Hogarth.

Sadly, no such neat excuse exists for this correspondent. Nor for the newspaper which published his letter.

Mr, Mrs or Ms Hill is apparently next applying for a job as economic adviser to House Republicans.
