Any politician who says they won’t talk about hypotheticals is not worth listening to

Posted on

I have published this video this morning. In it, I refer to those politicians (all of them) who say they 'won't discuss hypotheticals' when that is literally all they exist to do.

The video can be viewed here.

The transcript is:

Politicians keep saying they won't talk about hypotheticals. And that is complete and utter nonsense that makes me want to scream at the television or radio or wherever else I hear them say it.

Why? Because everything about politics is about hypotheticals.

The future is hypothetical, it hasn't happened yet.

Therefore, it involves speculation.

And everything about politics is how we're going to change from where we are now. to where we want to be and is, therefore, about the hypothetical changes that they can make for our hypothetical advantage.

So why do politicians say they don't want to talk about hypotheticals?

Well, first of all, because they're stupid, and that's my first and obvious reaction to the claim.

And secondly, because they don't want to be held accountable for what they might do and therefore have to explain to you why they might have failed in the future.

Any politician who says they won't talk about hypotheticals is not worth listening to.
