Wise words from Uraguayan President Jose Mujica:
‘A president is a high-level official who is elected to carry out a function. He is not a king, not a god. He is not the witch doctor of a tribe who knows everything. ‘He is a civil servant. I think the ideal way of living is to live like the vast majority of people whom we attempt to serve and represent.’
Measure your political representatives against such a statement. None can stand.
