Good evening Joyce
Nice to have another poster on with something to say with a little thought behind it.in British politics today have in my opinion descended into an abysmal pit. Gone are the days when someone entered politics to make a difference for the good of the country. They made mistakes of course they did, sometimes catastrophic mistakes, but they did it for the right reasons. The good of the country was first and foremost tour politicians, regardless oft he colour of rosette they wore.
Now they enter politics for the good of themselves. examples are all around us. Just take two. A couple of weeks ago now, jack Straw let it slip that he can charge up to £10,000 for a speech. Now quite apart from he would need to pay me to listen to him that is just too much. It is relying on his relatively senior position in the House of Commons. no more, and no less. Straw is a labour politician of course and I have never voted socialist in my life. So what about Grant Shapps, and indeed for the matter of that Jeffrey Archer. sent to prison for insider dealing (quite rightly so) he has made millions out of the deal. hardly justice.
Then we have the scam that the new regulations were brought in, themselves because certain MP's (quite a lot) couldn't keep their hands out of the till. They have found a a way round it. Rent you're home to another MP. the taxpayer picks up the tab, while the MP concerned is also renting his home to another MP and the taxpayer picks up the tab. Then when they come to sell they get an enhanced price (Home of ex MP/Cabinet Minister/Lord/fill in the blanks).
On top of everything else they have had a cosy little set up for far too long. As voters we have had little or no choice. Politics in Britain is confrontational whatever the government of the day do is wrong. Too little, too late. is the permanent cry. then we vote the tories in, and the same thing happens, too little too late is the cry, or in the case of the cuts too much too soon and they dismantle as much of the last governments work as they can, and the cycle just repeats itself ad nauseam. This style of politics have ruined a once proud country.
On the 7th May we have a heaven sent opportunity to end the cosy little system by which we are effectively offered no choice. it won't come round again. At the least we owe it to ourselves whatever political leaning we have to break the cosy cycle of subsidised bars and restaurants and introduce some serious politics into Westminster. At the least to force them to be honest for a change. That is why I will be voting UKIP on the day.
