Pleased?

Not enough representation from the small parties, but still, the British people have voted in a hung Parliament.

Forty thousand regulations passed since 1998. Know of two of them doing you any good? With a hung Parliament no new regulations will be enacted.

Who ever came up with the absurd notion that MPs are supposed to be constantly churning out laws and regulations? A brief silence, while we traverse the EU's role in handing down thousands of laws and regulations later enacted by Parliament.

Lao Tzu's ancient wisdom has not had time to penetrate their minds? His ideas are very like the notions established by sensible Brits -

Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish. Do not overdo it.

The people are hungry: It is because those in authority eat up too much in taxes.

The more laws and order are made prominent, the more thieves and robbers there will be.

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Perhaps some principled and resourceful MPs will carve a brave, old-new path before the next election. Perhaps the people will be bolder next time.
