The End of Democracy

It is interesting following the the British electorate’s penny-pinching, thieving, sordid little representatives at the moment and one wonders where and when they all forgot their accountability and responsibility to their constituents?
No doubt, it was Thatcher who began a process that was continued by Major, picked up by Blair and has been carried on by Brown. A process whereby the cradle of democracy has been undermined to the point where today there is no real difference between the major parities. Both Labour and Conservative represent the same big business interests and ‘Blighty’ is now a political monoculture not unlike that one across the big pond. In such a culture the representatives are no longer responsible or accountable to the electorate and the corruption only mirrors the undemocratic system that has been created.
These twats do not feel obliged to anyone, apart from those who put money into their pockets, or compensate their mediocrity with celebrity status; the media hacks who invite them onto their chat shows and the captain’s of industry who wine and dine them on fact finding tours, and when industry and the media are not giving them money, then there is always public money to dip into. After all, what the plebs think, no longer matters and with British soldiers dying and killing on foreign fields in what are illegal wars, wouldn’t it be silly of us if to think otherwise.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
