The fairy-tale of little Princess Jacinda, a must-read bedtime story for all socialists

Comment of the Day, by George

Once upon a time Princess Jacinda sat her final paper towards obtaining her degree at Waikato University, she handed in a blank sheet of paper. The examiner looked at it and asked her, “What’s this”?

She replied, “Don’t worry about it, I have a group of mates down town working on the answers right now and when they come up with what they consider are the solutions, I will post them into you. Can you give me my degree now please”?

The examiner replied, “Sorry Princess Jacinda, but life’s not like that.”  

Not long after, Princess Jacinda went to get her driver’s license. The Officer invited Princess Jacinda to get into the car so he could test her practical driving skills. Princess Jacinda replied, “No need for that, I have a bunch of mates figuring out how to drive a car, and when they work it out, I’ll let you know. Can you give me my driver’s license now please?”

The officer replied, “Sorry Princess Jacinda, but life’s not like that.”

Princess Jacinda then thought it a good idea to buy a house so went along to an auction and placed the highest bid. When the agent went to sign her up he enquired as to how she wished to settle the deal from a financial prospective. Princess Jacinda replied, “No need for that, I have a group of mates doing the number crunching right now so l will sort it out later. Can you give me the keys now please?”

The agent replied, “Sorry Princess Jacinda, but life’s not like that.”

Princess Jacinda then joined the Labour Party and became their leader. The finance spokesmen suggested they plan a tax grab and when Princess Jacinda was on the campaign trail she was asked repeatedly what the fiscal details of their new tax grabs were. She replied, “Don’t worry about that, we have a group of mates down town figuring it out for us, and when they come up with what they consider are the solutions, I’ll let you know, so can I have your vote so I can become the next Labour Prime Minister now please?”

The electorate replied, “Sorry Princess Jacinda, but life’s not like that.”

But Princess Jacinda felt vindicated, for she had, at last, found a home in a political party which thought life was indeed, just like that, and she lived happily ever after.
