The First Salvo of the Elections!

Leave a comment

The major three Political Parties have fired their first salvo of their political campaigns of the General Election in May here in the United Kingdom.

It really looks like these Political Parties still sound empty, hollow and spent as political forces they are still as remote from the General Electorate as they have always been. They simply seam incapable as groups to change even after time and time again they have been told by growing majority of people they are out of touch!

So it looks like the General Election in May is going to be a close thing not because in truth there is now very little difference between the Political Parties because a large number of people here in the United Kingdom simply will not vote because they believe there is no point voting as nothing will change by voting.

This really suits the three major Political Parties as they will get back into the halls of power and the MPs will once again be on the gravy train doing nothing but making a good living acting as Politicians without actually doing anything to run the country as they are paid to do by us the General Electorate.

So it looks like we are in for one of the uninspiring General Election campaigns from the three major Political Parties who will make the same empty promises and lies to get us to vote for them. Then to make this mix even more worse we have to suffer the right wing and hate filled campaign of the United Kingdom Independence Party.

It might be idea if we as a General Electorate actually voted but not for the three major Political Parties or right wing parties like UKIP or BNP but for a real change either Greens, Republican or other minor political parties who actually have real different policies or spoil our ballet papers to send the a message we are not happy the way the current major Political Parties have been running the country and we want a change their attitudes!

Apathy Makes a Mockery of Our Democracy!

Leave a comment

With our General Elections here in the United Kingdom in May got me thinking about our modern democracy here. That it our democracy is now dominated by voter and political apathy which is making our whole political system a mockery.

All not helped by a political system and parties who have drifted away from the very people who vote them in the General Electorate who they should serve. They have turned into a self serving body which now seams incapable of change.

Then the three major political parties make the comment that people do not vote any more or even engage with the whole political system but it is exactly these three political parties whose actions have disengaged the electorate from the political system.

Basically the major political parties have in recent decades put votes and their pay masters first rather than the people they served. Add to this they sold out their political ideals for votes to a point there is no real differences between them. Then they wonder why people do not vote any more after all people see it as pointless as whatever political party gets into power nothing will change.

As the General Elections loom the three major political parties are once again failing to engage with the electorate and country as a whole to a point you not know there was a General Election other than the local councils sending out forms to do with the electoral roll here.

So once again apathy is going to make a mockery of our democracy and highlights we really do need a real change in our political system as if things carry on like this it will spell the end of our great democracy and country.

The Right Wing: The Robbers!

Leave a comment

This sounds a strange thing to accuse the right wing, especially here in the United Kingdom, of being robbers but they through their actions have robbed me of my patriotism and national pride in my country.

But their constant associating of patriotism and our own national flags with their racist and nationalist politics has poisoned both patriotism and national pride in such a way now both the media and general public now treat both as dirty words.

What I think I am trying to say is that being a patriot and national pride should not be something to be ashamed of and it should be more associated with the more positive aspects of the United Kingdom that is the country is example of a multi-cultural and multi-religious country which works but it is not far from perfect.

We need to redefine being a patriot and our national pride here in the United Kingdom as a people or individual level and focus on the positive aspects of our country and accept the fact that the vary basis of the country is the fact we are all immigrants and as a people especially in England have mixed ancestry.

We seam to conveniently forget early in our own history we are invaded by various Peoples from mainland Europe including Roman, Saxon even Normal who stamped their own cultural identities on our culture.

What I am saying our whole culture here in the United Kingdom is the result of immigrants coming to our shores not by being isolated from the World or Europe. Basically for our culture and society to continue to grow and keep it unique nature we need to stop blaming immigrants for our own problems and allow them to contribute to our society by allowing them to work and contribute to our society as a whole.

Personally I am fed up of the Right Wing especially the Extreme Right Wing here in the United Kingdom poisoning our patriotism and national pride associating it with racist and anti-immigrant message to a point a sizeable minority of people are ashamed such feelings and their own national flags.

This sizeable minority of people should take back our patriotism and national pride back from these extremists in the Right Wing and focus the positive side of such feelings which are for representative of the true nature of the United Kingdom.

Simply put I would like to have a pride for my country without the Right Wing poisonous association with such a pride!

A Question Over Mr Cameron’s Competence!

Leave a comment

I am starting to question the competence of both Mr Cameron, the Prime Minister, and the Conservatives competence in Parliament as once again they have show just how out of touch they are with the Electorate and world around them.

This has come to a head with a letter sent to a 1000 the Muslim Mosques here in the United Kingdom after the Paris attack urging them to watch for radicals in their Mosques even implying some Mosques could be centres of such radicalism here in the United Kingdom.

Personally it is a ill thought out letter not needed at a time when Muslim’s position within United Kingdom is a bit delicate plus it implies that the Muslims have not control over their own society here in the United Kingdom.

Add to this bar a few extremists the large majority of the British Muslims have shown no inclination to be any more radical than any other Muslims in Europe, if anything British Muslims have interrogated will into British Society without much compromise to their traditions or ours here.

It was not a letter which needed to be written as Muslims here in Britain already are part of our society and have been for decades. All that our PM Mr Cameron has done by writing the letter has given the more radical right wing parts of other parts of British Society yet another excuse to discriminate against innocent Muslims here in the United Kingdom.

My personal option what Mr Cameron and his Ministers have done by sending this letter is wrong to a point they have shown a real incompetence and disconnection from the general populous they have become.

We as a people should make sure we are not happy with Mr Cameron’s actions by sending the letter to the British Muslims as it shows a very un-British attitude from someone who claims to uphold the values of Britain which includes tolerance and understanding!

Election Madness Starts Again!

Leave a comment

This year we have the General Elections here in the United Kingdom and it is going to be on hell of a ride for all the Political Parties involved. All made worse they the intervention of the one extreme right wing party called United Kingdom Independence Party who are attempting to sell themselves as an alternative to the major political parties at the same time pandering to the racists and anti immigrant sentiments here n the United Kingdom.

So this years General Election here could be the most difficult election to predict the out come to as frankly the three major Political Parties have long past their best and all have exactly the same problems in so much they have no real connection with their voters any more. Add to this they all really have nothing new to bring to the table in the form of policies save the same old policies just wrapped in new language and wrapping.

A for UKIP it any sell itself as an alternative but in true all the party is yet another mainstream political party with empty policies even more so as it is not even a real political party just and anti-European political party with no real policies and certainly no real morals or integrity.

I know what I would like to happen at the General Election in so much the people show the current establishment and its political parties including UKIP and not vote them in to power. But as always one of the major parties or a coalition of them will take power and the United Kingdom will remain in same malaise for the next 5 years.

So now here in the United Kingdom we will have the suffer the machinations of the three major political parties and UKIP all of which will make empty promises to get our votes and try to score cheap points off each other. All in all it looks like the run up to our General Elections will be particularly vicious and acrimonious political campaign which will be unpleasant for all involved and the electorate!

The Hypocrisy of the UKIP!

Leave a comment

There was a story in on the BBC which related as story that UKIP has taken money from the European Community to under the pretence of promoting themselves as a pan-European Political Party!

What makes this story worse is the sheer hypocrisy of Nigel Farage and UKIP who have an open anti-European stance in the United Kingdom but they are not above taking money from the very people who they want to remove any connections to in the United Kingdom.

Add to this it also something a lot of people have suspected about the UKIP MEPs and party in Europe that they are masters of playing the European Bureaucracy to get extra money even to a point of blatant fiddling or bending the truth to get this money.

This once again brings into question both Nigel Farage and his party UKIP honesty and integrity into question as if party is prepared to bend the truth to gain money at any cost added to this the constant reports of UKIP MEPs expenses being questionable and the said MEPs not putting themselves up for an audit of their expenses.

If UKIP are up to very questionable practices with in the European Parliament what sort of things are they going to do if they ever got into any position of power here in the United Kingdom Parliament after all who can really trust a party who has shown such lack of basic honesty and integrity elsewhere!

English Votes for English Laws is Not Enough!

Leave a comment

The Commons Leader William Hague’s proposal for English Votes for English Laws in Parliament in Westminster is not enough if anything to myself personally sound at best farcical and at worse unworkable plus potentially costly to the tax payers of all the United Kingdom.

But once again like the Conservative Party way of dealing with the future of the United Kingdom either as a real union of states or as one entity has been farcical to criminal. It has got me questioning if the current Conservative Party here can be trusted with Union future which frankly currently it looks like their actions will damage the unity of the Union to a point they could split the Union by their incompetence!

But once again the Conservative Party here in the United Kingdom have proved they put their own and supporter interests before that of the electorate themselves in so much they have still failed to act on their promises they made to Scotland if they stayed in the Union.

Personally the Conservative Party are highlighting the English question in the hope it distracts the Scottish long enough they fail to notice the Conservatives not actually giving them what they promised.

But it not going to work as the Scottish have long memories and the Conservative inaction could trigger yet another Scottish Independence vote which this time would result in an independent Scotland. Add to the fact their messing up of the English Votes for English Laws could spark off separatist feelings in the regions of England who feel the Parliament in Westminster really does not represent their regions of England.

One again the Conservative Party here in the United Kingdom are risking the basic fabric of the United Kingdom in the hope it will give them more votes not because they really believe in what they are doing!
