Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 78 Candidates





Who to choose for the job?


Such a difficult question when there are so many candidates.


How do you know who will do the best job.


Who is committed, who is honest, which one can be trusted.


But an important thing to know now is…….


Which one of the candidates will NOT fiddle their expenses!



This is the question I, and millions of others, had to face yesterday at the Polling Station for the EU elections and will be the same at the General Election when we get one!






Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

This easily could have been written for our election process a few months ago as well.

MomsJournal said...

Is "their expenses" a euphemism for something else? LOL Because if it is I think that's what too many American's worried about after Clinton. :P

Thom said...

Oh my dear friend. You do so well with these. Fiddle with expense...love it. I think all politicians are fiddlers myself :) Aloha

Sandi McBride said...

YES YES YES...well done...we expect nothing less, lol!

Daryl said...

Nice .. and lets hope the right one got elected

Lou said...

Sadly.. elections are the same across the pond. Often the lesser of two evils.

PS- I live in Motown!

Susan at Stony River said...

We voted today too--as best we could, but there's no such thing as a non-fiddling politician! Am I laughing or crying? *sigh*

A great 55 for the day. I wish us all luck when the results come in!

Cat said...

Fiddle their expenses! I love how I figured out - at the very end - that this was about elections!!!

paisley said...

i don't think wed ever elect anyone if we swore off electing those that would at some point in time or another fiddle with the expenses.....

Alice Audrey said...

That is a very tough question.

Ron said...

"Nobody gets to Washington without a little sh*t on their shoes". Sad, but true..to beat the status quo you must become a part of it- and you are lost...

anthonynorth said...

An important point. I'm listening to the results of the locals at the moment. The people have expressed their disgust.

G-Man said...

Fiddle of course has many different meanings...Ask your Wicked Uncle Ernie.

Excellent 55 Ake!!!

Thank You for playing My Dear, mand have a Great Week-End...G

I think elections are the same the world over Jeff!

No MomsJournal'Expenses' are expenses - the fiddle them!

I think all politicians are fiddlers too Thom

Thanks Sandi x

I don't hold out much hope of that Daryl :(

I believe elections are the same there as here Lou. You live in Motown? Lucky you! Can I visit please? ;)

If we get some good politicians out of this election we'll be lucky won't we Susan?

Ah you figured it out Cat - well done! :)

I think you're probably right Paisley!

It user is AliceAudrey! :(

Aw Cheers Ron xx

Thanks Bee xx

I think an honest politician must be a very rare breed Buff - I'd love to meet just one!

I think that is exactly what this election has been about Anthony - the public registering their disgust.

Fiddling is a dirty word G-man in whatever context it's used! ;)I hope you have a great weekend to m'deario. xx

A Lady's Life said...

I think people have to ask first if they know the problems and then what are their plans for solutions.
If they have no ideas for solutions then why are they running for politics?

Shadow said...

oh, that's always the tricky bit, choosing the right one. thought provoking 55...

Eaton Bennett said...

Oh how true and well written. Loved this 55! :)

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Jadey :)

Oh you're really too kind Dr. John, I thankyou. x

Take your time Spiky, I'll still be here honey. xx

Or - are they in it for what they can get Lady's Life? Which is what the majority seem to be at the moment!

Isn't it just Shadow!

Glad you enjoyed it Eaton :)

cheshire wife said...

I am not sure which is worse, fiddling expenses or the childish behaviour that we have seen from some MPs this week.

Mona said...

a good consideration in the present times!

Akelamalu said...
