Terribly, Terribly, Boring & Dull

When is anything interesting going to happen in politics? Recently, it’s all been pretty drab and boring. We haven’t even had any ludicrous claims from Scottish Labour apart from a call for the SNP to give up being bad and to join a progressive alliance with Labour; the Party which spends its time attacking everything the SNP say or do.
Other than that, we’ve had petty arguments over the Named Persons’ legislation which seem more concerned with scoring political points than attempting to build a social care system which will protect children.
And then there is the Tory civil war which manifests itself as two versions of Project Fear masquerading as the EU Referendum debate.
Am I the only one who can’t raise much enthusiasm for any of this? It’s not that I’m losing interest in politics, it’s just that the whole thing seems rather petty and pathetic. The only matter of any real interest is the Tory Election Fraud investigations which the BBC are doing their best to downplay which is a scandal in itself.
Let’s hope we get some proper debating points soon but, quite frankly, I’m not holding out much hope.
