LOCAL ELECTIONS: CASHING IN ON DEMENTIA

cash

Barry Cash would like to be the councillor for Bishopston in the elections this week. But there’s a problem …

Barry, a serial letter writer to the Nazi Post and the motorists’ friend (“I have called on the Council to remove peak parking restrictions”; “allow more parking”… etc), is proudly shown “listening to local residents views” on the front of his latest election leaflet.

However, there’s one small problem. The resident on the leaflet suffers from dementia and wouldn’t have the foggiest idea what was going on! Needless to say friends and relations are said to be less than happy with this shameless exploitation of a vulnerable person.

Barry’s big political pitch and “ambition for Bishopston” is to “keep it as nice as it is”, which is er … nice!

PS It’s Dementia Awareness Week – find out more on the website of the Alzheimer’s Society, which helps educate, inform and support those affected by dementia.
