Everyone will have feelings of elation, despair or indifference about the local and European elections last week, but let’s not discuss them here. Time will tell how much effect they will have on businesses such as ours and people like us.

But how about taking a look at quotable quotes on politics and politicians? The internet makes it easy to do so. You will find many lofty statements of course but the most entertaining and sometimes perceptive ones are mainly cynical. Here are just three:

''Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt'' Abraham Lincoln

“A fool and his money are soon elected”Will Rogers

“Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks”Doug Larson
