W.C. Fields: never voted for anyone

From Dr Frank Peel.

Sir, Why is anyone surprised at the rejection of Mario Monti? He was imposed on the people of Italy, not elected by them. So they rejected him the first chance they had to vote on him.

As W.C. Fields famously said: “I never vote for anyone, I always vote against.”
