    A Beautiful place!
    While walking down the street one day a Member of Parliament got
    tragically hit by a truck and dies.

    His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

    'Welcome to heaven,' says St. Peter. 'Before you settle in, it seems
    there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these
    parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you.'

    'No problem, just let me in,' says the man.

    'Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do
    is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can
    choose where to spend eternity.'

    'Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,'
    says the MP.

    'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.'

    And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes
    down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the
    middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and
    standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians
    who had worked with him.

    Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him,
    shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while
    getting rich at the expense of the people.

    They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar
    and champagne.

    Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly and nice
    guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having
    such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

    Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator
    rises...

    The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where
    St. Peter is waiting for him.

    'Now it's time to visit heaven.'

    So, 24 hours pass with the MP joining a group of contented souls
    moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have
    a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by
    and St.
    Peter returns.

    'Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now
    choose your eternity.'

    The MP reflects for a minute, then he answers: 'Well, I would never
    have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think
    I would be better off in hell.'

    So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down,
    down to hell.

    Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a
    barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends,
    dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags
    as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts
    his arm around his shoulder.

    'I don't understand,' stammers the MP. 'Yesterday I was here and
    there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and
    caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now
    there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look
    miserable. What happened?'

    The devil looks at him, smiles and says, 'Yesterday we were
    campaigning...
    Today you voted...'
