The trope 'a thicket of lies' comes to mind. Which doesn't really explain what I feel. For a well-intentioned or good hearted person to come to power, how would they deal with the decades or longer corruption in the system itself? So yes, I appreciate polite society and respect(not artificially polite). Maybe dignified. That's closer to what I mean. With Obama, I felt that we weren't quite chin deep in sewage.

Jacinda at least has walked the walk. She does have a smaller country to govern.

Funny you mention the Queen, sigi. I was thinking the other day how sad I'll feel when she's gone. But methinks it's unnerving to finally be, by age at least, the adult in the room.

> I don't really remember Bob Hawke. A bit before my time. I have been reading about the Australian election. Somehow it is supposed to make New Zealand look better, with our lovely liberal Prime Minister and our super-low rates of perceived corruption and our 'we want to be the best place in the world to be a child' aspiration...
