Most of all, we need to do something about the chronic democratic deficit in this country, reining back our
politicians and bringing them under control
Good sentence, nice sentiment, but there's a flaw in the argument, its the word "Politician". It's a fake word in
a fake democracy in a fake system. We have seen that Belgium can survive 14 months without a government, we don't need political parties seeking to implement vast social engineering programs in the image of their political pipe-dreams. Politics is death by millions of cuts.
What we need are governments that solve problems.
We have seen the last three labour leaders, Blair, Brown and Miliband; all certifiable nutjobs that shouldn't be
allowed near a parish council meeting never mind No 10 Downing St.
We need to abolish the Lib/Lab/Con/Green/etc. entirely.
M.P.'s should be selected from the general public in a way similar to Jurors, but with process that screens out
the psychopaths, sociopaths, criminals etc. and pays special attention to social and educational achievements.
Then the people should be allowed to vote M.P's (any M.P.) into a government that exists solely for the solution
of problems and well being of the population.
