‘Forget political parties altogether. The age of the independent is upon us. Local people known in the constituency should be elected, with no more implants from London who care nothing, apart from their rise up the greasy pole, their weird sex lives and their chance to become high level criminals beyond the reach of the law.’
I dropped this comment off on Political Betting under this morning’s post about the main parties recording lowest levels of support in their history.
I wonder how long my comment will last. They often get deleted if you start revealing what’s really going on, and I often have to use multiple identities to get past the monitors.
The site is all part of the control structure.
But you can get a feel as to how people see their political leaders from browsing the comments from time to time, which is useful. With an election in the offing, I find myself popping in to look every so often. And occasionally I can’t resist leaving my mark before I go! With Cameron acting exactly as another Blair, for many the penny is dropping. It makes little difference who you vote for, the outcome is the same. Ken Livingstone said that if voting changed anything, they’d ban it. It sounded like a joke. It wasn’t.
However if people can get it into their heads to elect people they know, who come from within their own constituency, people with a track record in the community, proving they care about it, then there might be a way to exert some leverage on the cesspool of evil and slime at Westminster.
